    We just stopped for lunch here based on the reviews and variety on the menu. One review said the nachos were gluten free, but when I asked the waitress she said she didn't know and didn't offer to find out. I ordered the gluten free pizza instead. I ordered the spaghetti with GF pasta for my daughter and I swear the waitress gave a little eye roll. When our food came, my father in law asked to double check they brought us the GF spaghetti and pizza and the waitress replied, "If that's what they ordered." Half of the pizza crust was burnt, but it was otherwise decent. Our waitress must have heard us complaining she was rude because she came back and apologized if her comment came across rude and assured us the food we received was GF. She was pretty nice for the rest of the time. Over all, I would have expected a restaurant with gluten free pizza and buns to have a bit more knowledge about their menu items and more understanding about a person's preference to double check before eating the food.

    I had the gf garden pasta and it was tasty. The waiter confirmed with the kitchen that the posts is boiled in fresh water. My kids had a gf pepperoni pizza and I didn’t hear any complaints.

    Menu wasn't easy to navigate but our server, Angie, was somewhat knowledgeable & willing to check with the kitchen. Carol was also very sweet & helpful. The whitefish was prepared in its own pan & extremely good. I was told I could have the fries but there's no dedicated fryer so no french fries if you have Celiac. This is a very busy kitchen & there was no sense that they had a dedicated area so I was apprehensive but everything worked out & I didn't get sick.

    Waitress was fabulous, and so was the food! I got the turkey sandwich with avocado. I'm not sure what sort of crack they put in that thing, but it was delightful, as was the Citrus Kale coleslaw!

    Came here a year ago and service and food was great, for cali club. Today Was awful service! I asked about how their food is prepared if I order gluten free - always like to check if it isn't one of my regular places. The waitress was not helpful. I understand it's not a advertised gluten free place but hoped that since some staff is knowledgeable the rest would be. Sadly I received attitude when I decided not to order. To me, it's not worth the risk. My husband still orders his meal as he's not gluten free. Sadly, I won't be back...

    Had the Planked Whitefish, which was excellent. Our waitress recommended the GF pizza, so we also tried that. it was just Ok. Overall, I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

    Ate there 3 years ago because it touted gluten-free options. Horrible experience. The waitress was flippant and could care less about my concerns. She never offered to check with the chef/kitchen when I asked questions and just looked at me with a blank stare when I asked. She knew nothing about gluten intolerance and made it clear she didn't want to. It was a very slow night so there was no excuse.

    So delicious! Had the Cali club on a gluten free bun. They had options for sandwiches, burgers and pizza. Normal side options aren't gluten free including the fries because they have batter on them but they offered me grilled veggies for complimentary. Otherwise I could get a side salad for less than a dollar.

    As a GF vegetarian, my options are usually limited to pizza or salads when eating out, but I just had a caprice sandwich on a gf bun that was delicious. They also had sautéed vegetables offered as a side and the server was knowledgeable about gf options.

    They had the best gluten free pizza I've ever had! It was the kind of pizza I've been missing.

    Gf pizza was very good. Waitstaff knew about gluten. Said they had gf buns for sandwiches and burgers. I was worried about getting sick but I did not.

    VERY disappointed! The waitress did not know if fries were gluten free. She checked, they weren't, so she offered pasta salad or soup with pasta as a replacement. When I pointed out that wouldn't work, she offered a salad, but would up charge me. Then she did not know which salad dressings were gluten free, and would not go check. I ended up walking out.

    We stopped in after finding a long wait at another restaurant near our ferry dock. So glad we ventured out and gave Village Inn a try! Fine kids menu, great gf plank whitefish, terrific gf chicken dish and really nice small gluten free pizza for our daughter. Honestly, way better than our expectations, especially having eaten at the Village Inn on the island over the years. Gail, our server, was super friendly and you could tell the chef has her heart in it. Thanks for saving a hungry family on a busy Saturday night - we'll be back!
