The staff was extremely attentive to gluten issues. They made suggestions and could work around almost any of their recipes. That evening they had as a special, fish tacos. Paired with the house salad, it was fantastic.. They are also quite keen on vegetarian choices -- Sweet Potato and Quinoa griddle cakes, for example... Noodle bowls with rice noodles. The choices were many!! Small restaurant as it was too cold to eat outside, but a great experience.

Imagine lunch dining in the warmth of the sun with a cool breeze while overlooking Lake Tahoe! Now imagine that your meal was easy to order, (as in unbelievably easy that it seemed too good to be true!) and it was all GF, naturally! We visited Freshies while on a vacation road trip and found this casual Pacific island-themed restaurant to be one of the most delicious meals of our 12 day trip! The waitress had knowledge of gluten-free, and verified everything with the marvelous chef. This was a place that was known to have other customers who eat wheat-free. My daughters and I enjoyed the tempura fish tacos and chicken nuggets with fries (yes, I said fried fish and fried chicken nuggets!) with everyone else at our table! It was actually the same dish as those in our family who are not gluten-free! For once, or meal didn't have to be exceptional, or unique, or special. The bread coating is a rice flour mixture, and everything is fried in separate fryers. Freshies even documents this on their menu! I was a little suspicious of the Asian slaw dressing on my side salad so I requested that it be omitted. The salad was a delicious combination of fresh slaw veggies that I didn't even miss a dressing! They do have a separate menu for lunch and dinner. Many items can be grilled or requested without bread. The veggie burgers are actually listed as being made "dairy, wheat, and soy free". Several salad choices are enticing to both celiacs and non-GF eaters. There is roof-top dining available for lake watchers, but our large party decided to dine indoors this time where the cozy environment was making us feel like Hawaii was so near! What a a great find Freshies was in a little shopping strip area across the street from Lake Tahoe!
