Our first time. Dining out has become difficult for us. Our daughter was diagnosed a year and a half ago as a teenager. She had a gluten free crab cake sandwich. She was beyond thrilled! It was delicious. Server was knowledgeable about cross contamination. Our non gluten free food was amazing. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much!! ❤a celiac mom

My Celiac friend and I have been planning on going here for a couple months after seeing all the good reviews. While we heavily appreciate the idea of feeling safe while eating gluten free from a restaurant that we are new to, we were not at all impressed with the actual food. We each tried the mac & cheese and the crab melt. The bread was great, as was the crab cake, but the mac & cheese was sub-par. The noodles fell apart and the cheese was thin like water; I could not put my finger on the taste, but it definitely had a hint of spice (maybe horseradish). Overall, I’m glad there is a safe place to eat in Somers Point, NJ, but I probably will not be back.

This is how it should be done. Owners have a celiac in the family, so they know the drill. The following items can be prepared GF: Grilled Cheese, Mac and Cheese, Crab Cakes. Anything that doesn't go into the fryer can be added in (bacon, onions, eggs, mushroom, pork belly, etc.) They have a dedicated grill and prep area, and keep the GF food in a seperate fridge. The take-out containers are very clearly maked GF and kept separate from the non-GF food. And the food is spectacular. The GF grilled cheese is on B-Free bread and absolutely great. The fantastic crab cakes are made with GF breadcrumbs. I couldn't possibly recommend this place any more!

Amazing. Gf crab cakes, bread and Mac n cheese. 3 things that we usually cannot eat out....and they were soo good!!! I haven’t had Mac n cheese in I don’t even know how long AND I don’t think I’ve had a crab cake since being diagnosed. The staff is amazing and knowledgeable-the young girl who helped me informed me that the owners daughter has celiac, which is why he now does what he does at his restaurant. :) I can’t wait to go back.

What an awesome experience I had. I called ahead to verify what I had read on the reviews as far as offering GF and having separate cooking/prep area. The girl that I spoke with confirmed what I had read and explained their CC procedures (separate grill and utensils). I felt very comfortable making the trip down after speaking to the staff. They are able to prepare several items - crabcake, grilled cheese and mac n cheese. I was able to get their signature "Guy Fieri" crabcake melt. It was delicious. In the 1.5 years since I've been diagnosed, it was one of the best meals I've had and I ate it with confidence. Our waitress was the same person I had spoken with and she was totally on top of things and knew all about proper procudeures. She told me that they have been working on perfecting their GF offerings and after much trial and error, they now feel they have a product(s) that people can actually enjoy and she was right! Kudos to the owners and the staff that have taken the time to learn and do GF/Celiac-Friendly right. Icing on the cake - the bread didn't fall apart and was actually very good! I'm not sure about anyone else but it is such a pleasure to eat somewhere where your are not made to feel like a pain/annoyance/diva because you need GF.

I went there tonight and had a regular grilled cheese sandwich on gf bread and they asked if it was an allergy or a preference. They assured me they cook it on a mini separate grill and with separate utensils.They also have gf Mac and cheese but stated it takes over 30 minutes to cook & it had mozzarella cheese (which I personally can’t eat) so I didn’t order this. Next time I will definitely try the gf Crab Cake melt! Highly recommend!! Staff was knowledgeable and very kind!

Had the grilled cheese on gluten free bread and it was delicious! The waitress asked if it was an allergy and then assured me that it would be prepared on a separate surface. I was a bit disappointed that the cream of tomato soup was not gluten free. They do have salads available, however.

I was so excited to try this place. I love a good crab cake and really miss grilled cheese. I went here with my husband and 2 children. The bill was over $60 and not worth half of that. They charged me an extra $4 to make my Crab Melt gluten free which wouldn’t have been an issue if the bread was at least grilled instead of just warm-ish and at least close in size. They don’t have a dedicated frier so I couldn’t even get a side of fries with my lackluster sandwich. I opted for the coleslaw which contains no gluten ingredients but could be cross contaminated (I’m not that sensitive thank goodness) and was seriously under seasoned. The tomato in my sandwich totally overpowered my crab cake which was half the size of the one my daughter got that was prepared normally. So disappointed.

Absolutely the BEST crabcakes ever. Gluten free toast was perfect. I had the crab melt and it was amazing. They have so many options between the sandwiches and the soup.
