Not really a gluten free environment. Unfortunately the reviews here are overrated. Only obvious food is GF but not guaranteed from cross contamination. Great place but far from a gluten free menu.

Small selection of items that are gluten free. You can't go wrong with the steak. Servers were very knowledgable and confident that their chefs will get it right. I had the stewed kale and New York strip with a side of shrimp. Pub feel and loud but I didn't get sick and that's what matters most. See pics of food and menu attached!

Excellent, knowledgable wait staff. Delicious food. Great variety, including dessert. Noisy, but allowed us to feel comfortable bringing our 3 kids. GF happy hour choices. Would return!

Enjoyed a leisurely brunch here this weekend. Server (Noah) was very informed on gluten free items/substitutions/inquiries, and quite polite about it all as well! Had eggs, sausage, and the Kennebec frites. GF is clearly labeled on the menu, and easy to sub out items. The only thing I wanted to indulge in and could not was a Bloody Mary, they use the Ballast Point Mary Mix which has beer in it. Overall, highly recommend!

Great food and they pretty much always have a cider option on tap. Its noisy and pretty crowded. Staff is knowledgeable and gf options are listed on the menu. They also have bar trivia night.

Their GF menu for the most part is limited to dinner. I had Dark & Stormy cocktails. They were delicious. I had their Kansas City BBQ Wings. They were excellent! For dinner I tried the Shrimp with Grits. Different, but very good. I like the originality of this place and the atmosphere is great.

They have a GF menu but don't bring out for lunch. So not a lot of options.

Union Kitchen and Tap is a great location, near the beach and in a friendly envrionment. I love how the windows are open during the day to let the fresh air and light shine through. They have plenty to offer from beers on tap, speciality cocktails, and even Gluten Free items on the menu. In general, Union has lots of offer and their food is fresh, natural, and locally raised to serve their customers some delicious meals! Yum, I will definitely be back and recommend this place to my friends. Might I add, the ambiance of the restaurant made me feel welcomed and with my friends there just made my night fun.

Not only does Union have incredible cocktails, they have a large variety of gluten free items on the menu. The atmosphere is fun and lively, decor rustic yet modern, and they have all around good service. The happy hour prices are very reasonable, and its a great place to hit right after a long day at the beach.
