The Mooring is a MUST for Celiacs! My dinner was absolutely delicious and safe. My waiter was able to answer most of my questions, and checked with the kitchen if he wasn't sure. I had a chopped salad and a lobster roll. Highly recommended!

Had a great experience here! Our waitress was knowledgeable about what was gluten free. They have their own dedicated GF menu- had the Cesar salad with salmon and the flourless chocolate torte for dessert.

Lobster roll on GF bun (Udi's). Tip: ask for extra dressing because the Udis tends to soak up the dressing.

Had a great dinner here. There is a separate GF menu (make sure you ask for it - regular menu is not marked) and the server was very knowledgeable and double checked everything I had questions about. My cod came out so crispy on the seared side I got suspicious that there HAD to be flour involved, and the waitress checked again with the chef who confirmed I was good to go. Enjoyed everything and felt fine afterward.

Absolutely fabulous. Delicious. the gluten free bun on my Lobster Sandwich (lobster roll) was one of the best ever. The service was great and my dish came out marked with gluten free marker.

Separate menu. Lucky to grab a seat as a walk in, reservations were fully booked on a Tuesday. Seafood is a must try, there is no way around it. Lobster roll was insanely good, Caribbean Shrimp wraps were extremely tasty but a bit messy. Food is on the pricier end but it is a unique experience given the location and the looks of the establishment. Server was knowledgeable of allergies, but service itself could be better. The place is very big so we were only visited like 3 times.

My wife is celiac and we went here after seeing many positive reviews regarding gluten free options. The waitress was knowledgeable, and the food was amazing. We got the Caesar salad (with gluten free croutons), swordfish, and scallops. Probably the best scallops and gluten free rolls I’ve had in my life. The other items were great too. Highly recommended!

They offered s GF menu, understood CC & food was decent. The prices were so high & the food wasn’t that good. I paid $35.00 for 4 scallops on Lima beans. My table laughed at my meal when it arrived, called it a smurf meal. They do offer GF buns that were great & a separate butter dish.

They have a designated GF menu and delicious food! A manager brought my food out and assured me the kitchen deemed it celiac safe. The wait staff was excellent! She saw that I wasn’t eating the GF croutons in my salad (as GF croutons can be a bit mushy) and came by to reassure me my whole plate was prepared GF. The lobster sandwich, seafood risotto, and tuna poke were all so good. My mom and I finished our meal with Creme Brûlée(yum)!!

WONDERFUL creative gluten free menu options! LUNCH: Had GF scallops on top of a delicious creative hash made of cubed potatoes, pancetta, spinach, corn, onions - SENSATIONAL! I had a delicious salad for an appetizer made of cukes, tomatoes, romaine and various lettuce types, goat cheese, light dressing topped with almond slices - GREAT. For dessert I had GF creme brulee topped with a raspberry puree - AWESOME. Also provided warm gluten free rolls with butter - very good.

NON-GF: My husband (NOT a GF diner) had white chowder filled with scallops; with it he had what they call "lobster donuts" which for most of us are called clamcakes - these were filled with chunks of lobster. We had a beautiful harbor front table with a nice view. The waitress was exceptional; the manager also came over to say hello and ask how the meal was. Overall I highly recommend The Mooring for celiacs with great and creative gluten free options! We have eaten here in the past and the meals are always great.

I am blown away by how good this place was. There is a large variety of options including a whole vegetarian section. When they brought out the bread, I had to ask several times if it was safe to eat because it was so good. Never in my life have I had such delicious bread. The waiter was very knowledgeable about Celiac and even knew what the best gluten free options were.

I have severe Celiac disease and when I called to make the reservation, they asked on the phone if I had any allergies or disease that they should be aware of.. No other restaurant has ever done that! It was the absolute best food I've ever had and my waitress was amazing. Totally aware of the precautions I needed to take. Full gf menu as well! Definitely my favorite place.
