Stopped in here on our first night in Seattle, as most of the stalls in Pike Place Market were closed for dinner. What a lucky find! Great atmosphere, terrific waitstaff, and nearly the entire menu is GF or available GF. Cheeseburger, fries, fish and chips, most of the appetizers, and even the two cakes for dessert! The food was delicious! Strong recommend!

The menu is well labeled and the staff were a delight. While not everything is GF, the friers are dedicated GF so get your fried food fix here!

Had the fish and chips … delish. Wondering if I could take the homemade tartar sauce home in a bucket or if that would be weird?

I thought I would give this place a try while I was in Seattle. It did not disappoint. The staff was knowledgeable about celiac and cross-contamination. I felt comfortable enough with the fish and chips. They use dedicated fryers for the fish and the fries. The portions were decent. I would eat here again.

Not often that I get a shot at fish and chips, so I much appreciate when places have GF fish and chips. Menu clearly shows GF and "available as GF" items. The fish was well prepared, although it was rockfish--not my favorite. Service was friendly.

This was our first stop when we got to town! 🥳 It was a cute little diner downtown with TONS of options!! 😍 The waitress was knowledgeable, they had a dedicated fryer and she told me that the old owner was celiac so everyone is well educated! 🤓

I had the Fried Chicken Sandwich which was AMAZING!! 🤤🍔

We will definitely be going back for breakfast and dinner!! 🙌🏼

Edit to add, we went for breakfast, I had the sausage frittata and it was SO good!! I literally would eat here every day if I could!!
