    We dined with a large group here while on vacation. Enjoyed shipwreck grouper which was excellent in flavour and the portion was huge!! There was a little bit of a language barrier with our waiter which made me very nervous, but he guaranteed that my meal would be safe to eat. Celiacs can't take such chances so I asked a different waitress on my way to the washroom, hahaha!! I felt better after she explained their kitchen staff being very aware about cross contamination. I was not sick after and will definitely go back someday!! My hubby (non-Celiac) got the same as me and loved it !!!!!

    Nice atmosphere and separate GF menu. However, the tortilla chips and chicken wings listed on the GF menu are fried in a shared fryer and therefore are NOT GF. I am thankful that my server knew enough to mention it to me since I had ordered the nachos! I ended up getting the smoked fish dip with celery sticks which was OK, but needed more seasoning then I had the BBQ shrimp which was very tasty! I only gave 3 stars because of the lack of clarity on their GF menu that could easily cause contamination if the servers don't speak up or ask.

    my 6 year old celiac had the nachos and loved them. It was a huge portion so she shared.

    We enjoyed their gluten free menu plus they were great with our many food allergies!

    We were told that almost everything has gluten in it, even the rice! We were told the only GF option was steamed fish.

    Nice atmosphere but ordered off gluten-free menu and was served soy sauce that was not gluten free. Fine for gluten free dieters but not celiac

    Great for breakfast. Our waitress was a celiac so she knew exactly how to help me. JalapeƱo corned beef hash was delicious. Their hash browns are also safe and they do corn tortillas. My bf loved the regular toast and said it tasted homemade.

    Absolutely delicious. My daughter and I both have celiac and really enjoyed the blackened hogfish with rice and fresh vegetables. Was able order cider or wine as well. Really great water view and experience!

    I had Island steak with chef's rice and tomatoes. It was decent. The steak was a bit overcooked but it was so thin I'm not sure how they could have made it medium, it was still tasty though. The rice was delicious! Tomatoes were an odd side I thought, but my father gave me his broccoli that he doesn't like and that was very good. Our server wasn't the greatest and made me nervous, he acted like he really didn't care, but we were ok, we didn't order anything questionable. My father had the snapper grilled and it was fantastic. They have cake too but we were too full.

    So many gluten free options and the food was absolutely delicious! Best dolphin fish dip appetizer with corn tortilla chips. Had the macho nachos for lunch and it is absolutely huge and yummy! My husband had the Mahi tacos and loved them as well! *the tacos were fried and on a flour tortilla so no GF. Loved the fact that they had a GF menu which made things so easy!

    Separate GF menu. Waiter was knowledgable. Great views. Hubs had Caribbean special & I had nachos. Both were good. We didn't get dessert, but they do offer a GFS choc cake.

    Great food, the staff knows their stuff. We ate here almost everyday on our trip to the keys and never had an incident with my very sensitive wife. I would highly recommend.

    Fantastic gluten food experience (and for our non-celiac friends as well). Our waitress Danelle was so helpful in answering all of our questions. I'd highly recommend this to all. We plan to visit a few more times before our trip is over.

    Went here April 2013. Have a gluten free menu and dessert. Food was good. Cute place with a great view. Didn't try the dessert. Menu is more of what you can and cannot do gluten free that actual dedicated items.

    Nice that they do offer gf guidance (server gave me his tiny cheat sheet that listed what was off limits) however I ordered based on their recommendations for myself and my daughter and she had a reaction.

    Definitely not bad, not great either but it's slim pickings in marathon. They did have a gluten free menu. Nachos were great! Steak was cooked correctly and was decent in seasoning. View was nice as well. Mojitos were decent. All in all I could have made a better meal at home but the staff was knowledgable and I didn't get sick so I'll take what I can get. If you really don't feel like cooking and you want something easy and pretty good then give this a try.

    Cute restaurant situated on the water. The establishment does not have a dedicated fryer so anything deep fried is off the menu. The server was knowledgable about the allergy. The restaurant has a gluten free menu which basically tells you what you can and cannot have on the menu. They also have a flourless chocolate cake. I ordered the island steak - a sirloin with tomatoes and rice. Main course was unremarkable. Steak was cooked to proper temperature and only seasoned with salt and pepper. Rice was bland. Tomatoes were unseasoned slices on the plate which made the dish fill disjointed. Flourless chocolate cake was rich and smooth. Overall, nice place for a quick bite to eat.
