Very good gluten free fish and chips. But the gluten free Callebaut Brownie is the real reason to eat here. Save room for the brownie don’t eat all the fries. That could be a problem because the fries are delicious. Currently closed on Tuesday and Wednesday due to lack of staff. Added benefit if you don’t live on the island you get to ride the ferry boat.

Ordered the fried chicken salad and the fish-and-chips which were both good, the salad was excellent. Fries were from a dedicated fryer. Staff was friendly and informative. No issues.

The service at my latest visit was awesome and very reassuring. The server who took our order for takeout caught a cross-contamination issue after speaking with the kitchen and made sure everything was safe. I’m pretty sensitive and had no issues!

I’ve eaten here dozens of times. Always helpful and accommodating to allergies and gluten intolerance. Plus, the food is always great. Gluten free breads and other options.

Awesome experience and menu at this restaurant. It has a dedicated fryer, so I was able to get the fish and chips. The clam chowder is GF, as are all of their soups. Our waitress was knowledable and friendly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Very good food. When I ordered, our server asked whether I was Celiac, and said she always liked calling that out to the kitchen staff. Separate fryer, and attention to avoiding cross contamination. I had the buttermilk fried chicken salad, which reminded me of life before being gluten-free.

I was visiting a friend in Seattle and we took a day trip to Vashon, stopping here for lunch. What a great find! I had the chowder (gluten-free and delicious), and a burger and fries. The bartender serving us was aware of cross-contamination issues and told me that if the fryer had been contaminated, the kitchen staff would have notified everyone and celiacs would be told not to order the fries. All was well, and we had a great gf lunch.

Gluten free pancakes were not great. No flavor and fall apart. Next time I'll try the lunch menu.
