A manager had to assist with what few items were able to be made gf. (Salad, salmon and their flounder dish only.) It tasted good, but I did have issues afterwards, so I’m not very confident in their gf practices.

Expensive for what you get. Not worth it honestly. Still got sick as well.

The crab boil I had was great! They have designated platters for GF. I was told the seasoning options- garlic/Cajun were not GF, so I did not uses them.

Great customer service!

Our waitress was absolutely fantastic! It was a super busy weekend and she made sure to double check everything since she understood the importance of food restrictions and allergies.

They only have a few items on their menu, so I asked them to make the Shrimp Scampi with mashed potatoes instead of the linguini. I explained my “gluten allergy” and the waitress assured me that the sauce was safe. However- It came out with a giant piece of Garlic bread stuffed in the potatoes. Clearly few of them have an idea about what gluten is, let alone how to prevent cross contamination. The manager fixed it but I wouldn’t come back.

The menu was marked with a “G” for gluten safe. They had 4-5 menu items. My meal was delicious!! It was fish and shrimp on rice with a side sauce, all gluten-free!! It was so nice to go to a restaurant and order a meal and get to eat the whole thing! So good and I was full! The other menu items were an appetizer, a couple salads, and the rest were main courses. Their menu is on their website, so you can see it before you visit. Enjoy!

Had a few dishes marked as gluten sensitive items. Got the Accidental Fish and Shrimp, the server stated it would be made away and the manager would bring it to me. Well, she brought and said she didn’t want me to have to wait. I proceed with eating and a manager pops up all worried and says that it wasn’t the right dish. (Made away from everything, made to avoid contamination) He looked anxious and took it and brought another that didn’t taste the same, the second serving had like no seasoning. Not sure what went on there, but the server looked nervous throughout the rest of the meal. I don’t think I reacted, but I wouldn’t feel too safe going back. Too much risk.

I have been to about 6 different restaurants of this chain and always have a great time and dinner. There are only 5 different dishes available which are gluten free: Shrimp cocktail, Pear & Berry salad, Caesar salad, Glazed Salmon dinner, and Fish and Shrimp dinner. They are all labeled Gluten free on the menu and they are all great. Staff understands about gluten free and I have never had any problems. I would give it 5 stars if the had more GF options.

Some gluten free options, but not good for dairy free. Staff didnt seem very knowledgeable and it took the kitchen 45mins to let me know that i couldn't have the rice, as it contained dairy. I wouldn't return.

I'm celiac. This place just didn't want to accommodate me. CYA comments in menu stating basically to order and eat at own risk. No guarantees. Our server was clueless. Management called in, tried to assist but busy multitasking. I felt 3rd class. Good thing I'm used to these types of places and ordered carefully with no issues. But was scared for hours with thoughts of contamination. I won't waste my time with them again. They lost not only me but a table.

I went here looking for something I could eat safely, but the waiter informed me that they dont have anything gluten free, only “gluten sensitive”. He said everything would probably be cross contaminated as there is a lot of gluten in the kitchen. I ended up going across the street to islands instead. Not sure if they changed their policy or what, but it doesn’t seem like a safe place to eat if you’re gluten free.

1 star because they've reduced their GF options to 1 appetizer (shrimp cocktail) and a small ceasar salad (ask for it without croutons). Staff wasn't knowledgeable.

Gf items were marked with a G, not very many to choose from. I had the grilled salmon with jasmine rice and sautéed spinach which was excellent. I didn’t have the sauce with the fish as it wasn’t gf. Server knew what I could and couldn’t have. Great service and nice view of the water.

This place was disgusting food!! The waiter barely spoke English and so I had to ask for the manager. The manager told us he would come back to take our order because I am so allergic but he never showed his face again. The chefs and waiters think that butter and lemon have gluten in it. Both my fish and my daughters were plain and tasted like crap to be frank. We did not get cross contaminated but for the price of the food, I expect more than microwaved fish placed over a bed of rice with a couple of rubbery shrimp. I would not recommend this place at all unless your desperate.

Had the fish with shrimp (marked GF on menu) and got sick. Have eaten successfully at this chain in the past. They only have a few GF options but they are good. GF shrimp cocktail, 2 salads and 3 entrees - fish with shrimp, salmon and shrimp/veggie skewers. Would love to see this chain develop more GF choices.

When I ordered my food, I told the waiter I have celiac disease and he had a confused look on his face. And I explained how I cannot come into contact with gluten and if he could make sure they take extra measures to make it gluten free. He agreed and went back to the kitchen, but came back a minute later with a small pad of paper and asked if I could write down the name of what I have because he wasn't sure if he spelled it right and wanted to make sure the chefs knew what he meant. When the food came out the manager brought me my food separate and said "here is your gluten free meal" even though they don't have a gluten free kitchen, I didn't get sick after and I am very glad they put in the extra effort!

They bent over backwards for my son who has celiac disease. The menu is marked with gluten free items. Then the manager came over and said that many other items could be made gluten free with just a free tweaks. The waiter was also very knowledgeable. He told us that the food takes a little longer to prepare because they take the time to fully clean the grill, utensils, etc before they cook the gluten free food. Very impressed!!

They do have a dedicated GF menu, but choice is very limited. Saying that at least I could have shrimp for my starter which was amazing. No shrimp for main course though as all cooked in oil with gluten products, which was a real shame. I had salmon with rice for main course which was ok, but a little bland if I was honest. The restaurant looks great but for GF food, not so great. I wouldn't rush back.

Having a salad on your menu does NOT make you a gluten free place. Because you have 3 salads on a separate menu does NOT constitute as having a gluten free menu.

This place should be removed from this website.

No problems eating here. I was so excited to be able to eat at Forest's restaurant. I had a lovely salad but they forgot my shrimp (which could be substituted for chicken). The gluten free menu was reasonable and they were really good reducing cross contamination and checking all ingredients of the dressing.

My waitress was patient and showed me about 7 options. The manager came out and handed me my plate first, and the rest of the food came out a few minutes after. We went a little later (about 10:30 pm) and there was still no concern about cross contamination. I recommend the accidental fish and shrimp, it's really good!

There is a Gluten-free menu (great for my son!). My mom is also allergic to gluten, dairy, garlic and a few other things.

Our server wrote down what my mom couldn't have and went to check with the cook. Then the manager came and took her order. He offered to cook her shrimp or chicken with olive oil in the oven to be free of cross contamination.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. PLEASE take the chance to eat at this place if you have gluten-free needs. The dedicated gluten-free menu looks small, BUT the moment you mention to your server that you have a gluten allergy or gluten sensitivity they will bring a manager out and there are tons of items on the menus that can be made gluten free with just small tweaks (the manager will help you find these). This restaurant is EXTREMELY celiac friendly - manager explained how they relay to the chef your allergy, the chef oversees your meal personally, they change all utensils and gloves and prepare away from other food, and they even bring your meal out to you separately to avoid cross contamination. Our server knew nearly as much about it as the manager and they both impressed me with their understanding of the gluten issues. Would HIGHLY recommend for gluten accommodations as well as general service (friendliest service I've had at a restaurant, EVER) and the food (I got the accidental shrimp & fish) was delicious.
