The food was OK, but sitting outside by the harbor was worth the average food. Typical New England fare...cod cakes, Boston baked beans, brown bread. Really nice for a fun afternoon to experience Cape Cod.

I do believe they have gluten-free options however I don't follow those guidelines so you'd best call to find out if it doesn't state on their website which it probably does. Good luck!

I wish I could help, but, honestly, since I order the same thing each time I visit I do not know for sure. I could only suggest you check their website or call them directly to be sure.
