    food was good kind of expensive for what we got. I wanted so much to have battered shrimp they advertise gluten free fried battered fish and shrimp. they do not have a dedicated fryer they said the heat kills the gluten.. so although they have a gluten free menu they do not really understand ..

    I reluctantly mark this place as celiac friendly. They do have a gluten friendly menu, but there were items on it that weren't gluten free (french fries, sauces). Their specialty is all fries fish, so when you order non fried, it also takes over 30 minutes to get your mediocre meal. I don't think they really understand celiac and I doubt they are certified GF.

    Came here based on the review posted from another diner. First visit...loved everything, my meal, the view, my waiter. I totally appreciated the dedicated gluten free menu and how thoughtful and considerate they were to my allergies. I had the local gulf shrimp cocktail and the grouper sandwich served on a gluten free bun. The bread was what all GF bread is like so I can't complain but the fish was lovely and overall the food was very good. Then I went back. I originally rated this place as five stars but was so disgusted during my second visit I wanted to give them zero stars. We sat at the bar area bc it was really crowded. I notified the waitress that I was gluten free and ordered from the dedicated menu. We ordered an app but all of our food was delivered at once. First mistake. Then I look at my side salad and there are croutons in it. Huge 2nd mistake. I sent it back and start eating our shrimp cocktail app first. When we finished it I put to the side of the table to be taken away. The server comes back with the salad but never takes the finished plate with shrimp tails on it. Then I cut into my fish and it is raw inside. 3rd and final. I wanted to cancel it but the waitress just went to the kitchen and started another fish. At this point I start eating my sides and salad while I waited. By the time my fish was finally cooked I had eaten the sides and so the fish was brought to me with nothing to accompany it and so it was just a salty piece of fish. Btw, my empty dish of shrimp tails sat there until we left. I was really disappointed to see no adjustments or courtesies were provided on the check. I will ever eat there again.
