    What a terrible experience. We went there for lunch and my son got a basic cheeseburger with bacon and without telling us they charged $4 extra for the bacon, $2 extra for the cheese, as well as the $2 up charge for the gf bun! So his burger with a very dry crumbly bun that just fell apart was $19.50!!!! The manager refused to even come talk to my husband and said "that's what your ordered" even though neither the bacon nor the cheese up charges were listed on the menu My son also ordered lemonade that was so sour it was undrinkable. My husband got the lamb burger and it was overcooked, dry and his gf bun also totally crumbled. We all ended up having to eat our flavorless, dry burgers with a knife and fork as the buns just fell apart. So we ended up getting a bill for over $60 for the three of us to have burgers and fries for lunch with waters! While we were waiting to pay, the owner (who refused to come over and say anything in person) just glared at my husband the entire time. To top it all off, the waitress said they didn't take American Express, but after my hubby said he didn't have other with him they took the American Express and charged it after all. What?!? So they just lied? We have never had such an experience in our lives. Save your money and your time and go somewhere else!

    A phenomenal treat in every sense. Erin was our server twice and twice perfection. Absolutely every attention to detail and anticipates your every need. My husband had the gf fish and chips and has never had better! I had the barbecue burger WITH onion rings. Delicious and such a treat!!! Highly recommend!

    I ordered the fish & chips, which I was not able to order in YEARS. It arrived crispy, hot and was delicious! In addition to gluten free food they also had 4 of the Ghostfish beers available. They not only have a gluten free dedicated fryer, they also have a dedicated vegan fryer. We will definitely be patronizing this business again.

    One of my go-to restaurants. Almost everything is GF or can be. They are very cautious of cross contamination. I have never had a reaction after eating here. The food is always excellent. Sometimes the food service is slow due to how busy they get otherwise very attentive wait staff.

    Food and service fantastic. This is the first time I have had real fish and chips since going gluten free five years ago. Also had a very good cheesecake for desert. So many things on the menu looked very good, but since I could only eat one, and I have been craving fish and chips for about a year... I'm just sorry that I live hundreds of miles from here.

    It's wonderful to find a place like this where you don't have to worry about getting sick. Also, finding gluten free chowder, fries, fish and chips and calamari is like a dream...Thank you!!!

    This place is amazing! The two owners have Celiac and totally get having a "normal" restaurant with a wide variety of food that just so happens to be gluten free. Two of us in the party have Celiac and one other with gluten sensitivity. We all loved our food, the variety of choices on the menu, plus a great ambiance. Our waitress was also awesome and ensured she communicated to the chef that we were Celiac even though we ordered gluten free, she knew the importance of ensuring that extra bit of care. A great place to stop to or from the ferry in Anacortes. (Don't let the look of some other parts of the neighborhood scare you away!)

    My husband and I are strictly gluten free as we are both gluten intolerant. You can imagine my surprise when we found this restaurant on our one night romantic getaway. We walked into the restaurant a little bit before the dinner rush. There were only about 2 to 3 tables in the bar area that were occupied when we arrived. It took 15 minutes for a waitress to come greet us after a very cold hostess seated us and brought us water and when the waitress finally did greet us, it was my husband and I who had to say "could we maybe start with a drink order?" as our waitress wanted to "give us a few more minutes". The food arrived out to the table fairly quick. We ordered the hummus plate and calamari to start with along with a side ceaser salad and two orders of fish and chips. All gluten free, of course. The calamari was limp and a bit lackluster especially for the $9 price tag and was served with tartar sauce and while we both understand that tartar sauce is considered the American standard, being offered tzatziki which is a bit more traditional would've been great especially since it is served on one of their burgers. The fish was cooked great and the fries were fantastic. You could tell that the chef really cared about their gluten free food tasting as authentic or as close to the non-gluten-free version as possible. Unfortunately, no matter how good the food is however, it just cannot make up for the rest of the experience. To say that the service left us feeling empty and undesired would be an understatement. It became pretty clear pretty early on in the dinner that we were not a "regular" or one of the pretty "Abercrombie and Fitch" people that apparently the staff has grown accustomed to. The atmosphere was dark with heavy, weighing down music which might have been easier to handle or look past had it not been for the servers who just added to the whole unappealing feel. My husband said it best when he said to me, after I had to ask our server for the bill, of course "we were happy when we came in here.. Let's get out of here and get back to being happy cause it's not going to happen here!" As soon as we got back to our hotel room, unfortunately, both my husband and I were using our bathroom to pay our respects to the porcelain throne. It wasn't exactly screaming romance, if you get my drift and this wasn't a meal or experience either of us ever care to repeat.

    This place is unbelievably good. Tons of GF offerings. We stopped on a Thursday on our way up to Vancouver and had the GF Garlic Bread, Kids Burger and Crab Mac and Cheese. The Mac and Cheese was so good we stopped again on our way down from Vancouver. Unfortunately they aren't open on Sunday.

    Excellent food and no problems for my daughter with celiac and the rest of us gluten intolerants. The crab cakes were some of the best things I've eaten in years. We live 4-5 hours south but will be looking for excuses to be back. Absolutely worth a drive if you're anywhere near.

    YUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had some of the best fish n chips ever! Everything we got, we liked. Has great seafood, but you can still easily find something to eat if you don't like seafood. Absolutly celiac friendly, as everything is already gluten free or can be made gf. Our waitress was really nice and answered all of our annoying and weird questions. I would have given this place more stars if this computer would have let me!

    Ate here for dinner, but wasn't in the mood for fish n chips, so came back for lunch a couple of days later. While they have a good selection of gf options, I didn't find the fish and chips all that great. Fairly flavorless, but a treat I don't often find. But you can definitely remain gluten free here.

    The best restaurant for eating GF anywhere! I have several friends that drive down from Vancouver, BC for fish and chips. It's just that good. You won't find better GF fish and chips this side of Portland. For an appetizer the Calamari is unbelievable! If you don't want seafood, I highly recommend the Shepard's Pie. It is fantastic! The French Onion Soup is another favorite. Had their Seafood Chowder on a recent Friday. It was so delicious, I hope they make it again on a Friday.

    found this pub using this app. made a trip into Mt vernon just for the gf fish 'n' chips. Oh, my goodness!!!! the batter was lite and crunchy and the fries were very good. I am not a tartar sauce fan but that was a really good creamy AND flavored tartar sauce. normally they taste like mayo with pickle relish only. this had dill and flavor. I also ordered the calamari. it was the icing on the cake. perfectly cooked with said tartar sauce. rings and baby squid just in case you are squeamish. also had iced tea which is TOTALLY worth mentioning. it's a tropical paradise flavor that doesn't need sugar. just squeeze the lemon. it makes it that much better. I was so impressed with the service and how nice everyone was. great atmosphere. the only down side I can think of is that the calamari had a little bit of oil on the bottom, like it needed to drain a bit more. it's just how it is, calamari cooks fast and cools fast. overall this restaurant is almost all gf. just about everything on it is gf. they even make their own gf bread and buns! for non gf people, my mom had the Reuben and the meat tasted like it was home cooked and she raved about it. it was thick on the meat and she was only able to eat half. they can also make it gf with gf bread. overall it was a great experience. Mama said it was 'delightful'

    Excellent Fish & Chips (nicely seasoned). In truly think it's one of the best F&C meals I've ever had. All their fryers are dedicated gluten free and almost all the meals can be converted to GF. Friendly staff is knowledgeable and owner supports Celiac friendly place. Salmon steak good too service with wild rice pilaf and we finished with flourless chocolate cake topped with small scoop of ice cream. All delicious and when we're visiting this area, this is definitely on our list for food, drink selection and ambiance.

    This restaurant is fantastic! I ordered the fish and chips- they were absolutely perfect. My grandpa said they were the best fish and chips he has EVER had! and I agree! They have dedicated fryers for gluten free foods so I felt safe ordering. I live in Tacoma, but I will be back again!

    I had an amazing experience here! The staff is well educated on food intolerances and most of their menu is gluten free or can be made gluten free. They keep any regular bread items separate from gluten free and use different knives and a separate space for cutting the bread. They are very careful to avoid cross contamination. I had gluten free fish and chips, garlic bread, and beet salad. They also have gf cider and beer available. Everything was delicious!! Can't wait to eat here again.

    The best gluten free restaurant in the North Sound area. Everything on the menu is GF or can be made GF. Best bet is the Fish & Chips which are always GF. Shepard's Pie is also awesome! Private dining room for large parties.
