Gluten free dining at seafood restaurant on south shore of Kauai,

I knew this restaurant had been reviewed on this site, and coincidentally, we found ourselves in this shopping center on a lunch stop with our tour of Kauai (our tour took us around most of the island, including Waimea Canyon and the Wailua River). Our tour guide gave us an hour for lunch, and there were many spots to choose from here in this nice, upscale shopping center of shops and restaurants. Ruth's Chris had opened recently, but this was not the "quick lunch" we were looking for (but note that all their locations are very GF friendly, so if you are looking for a fancier -- albeit expensive -- steak dinner, this is the place). However, when we saw Merriman's Fish House, we were happy, because we knew we could get a safe gluten free lunch for our son. With only an hour, we didn't have time to go from restaurant to restaurant comparing menus. This restaurant doesn't have gluten free markings on the menu (at least not the lunch menu), but when I asked the hostess before we were even seated, she told us that the salads, burgers (with a lettuce wrap instead of a bun), and all tacos were gluten free. My son and I both wanted tacos, so we ordered one order of fish tacos and one order of pork carnitas tacos to share. The tacos are expensive ($15-$17, as I recall), and you only get two small tacos. The meat is topped with cabbage and avocado and various salsas/sauces. They were pretty good...just kind of small for the money. Just a couple small pieces of fish in the fish tacos and a small portion of carnitas in the pork tacos. We also got a couple orders of fries for our family to share, since they were gluten free and fried in a dedicated fryer. They were awesome. My husband had one of the best turkey burgers he said he's ever had. Unfortunately, though, they don't offer GF buns (he isn't Celiac and therefore isn't gluten free so he had the regular bun). It would be a nice addition to keep GF buns in stock for those that need them. It would make the burger experience better (as opposed to just offering a lettuce wrap). All in all, a decent experience if you're on the south coast of Kauai and want to go to a restaurant that knows how to keep Celiacs safe.

Merriman's Fish House is located at Poipu Beach in Koloa, on the island of Kauai. Regional Hawaiian cuisine is featured here. There are many gluten free items labeled on the menu (GF). Among these are coconut/sweetcorn/clam soup, fresh fish ceviche, charred Ahi, jumbo lobster, and local grass-fed NY strip steak. Also, all of the locally grown vegetable side items are gluten free. As always, address any concerns regarding food preparation with the manager. Click here to see the dinner menu:
