Family members of ours LOVE The Narrows restaurant and frequent it often on the way to and from Ocean City, Maryland, but I had not been there in years. We recently learned they offer a Gluten-Free Menu, so we decided to stop there on the way back from a recent beach trip. Their menu is pretty extensive -- mostly seafood and beef, along with salads and appetizers. They are known for their amazing crab cakes, which unfortunately aren't gluten-free. But we'd had crab cakes the night before, so we probably wouldn't have ordered those anyway! Both our sons ordered gluten-free had perfectly cooked and sliced sirloin steak, served with green beans (instead of mashed potatoes, which are not gluten-free) and our other son wasn't very hungry so he just ordered shrimp cocktail and a salad. Our server, Christine, could not have been nicer, and she was happy to answer any questions about the menu. She "got it" because her own son suffers from dietary restrictions. I got the impression that the restaurant would accommodate any special requests not on the Gluten Free Menu if they could. They were very eager to please, which is so nice, because many servers/chefs/restaurants don't really seem to care that much about making their guests dining experience the best it can be. Their Gluten Free menu is not posted online, but you can request it when you arrive. The Narrows provided a nice alternative in an area where there aren't a lot of gluten-free restaurant sure beat McDonalds!! I'd just like them to try making a gluten-free crabcake (not that difficult to do without bread crumbs) and even using a different brand of chicken stock in their mashed potatoes so they would be GF (again, easy to do...Pacific Foods chicken stock and many other brands are now GF).
