Tugboat Resturant

Hyannis, Massachusetts

Gluten Free Cape Cod

Last July, my family and I had the pleasure of dining at the TugBoat Restaurant in Hyannis, a charming spot that quickly became a favorite. Our daughter, who has Celiac disease, sometimes faces challenges when dining out, but TugBoat Restaurant exceeded our expectations with its extensive gluten-free options and accommodating atmosphere.

A Bustling Atmosphere

TugBoat Restaurant is a bustling hub of activity, especially during the summer months. Reservations are highly recommended to ensure you get a table without a long wait. The vibrant energy of the place adds to the overall experience, making it a perfect spot for a family meal or a casual gathering with friends.

Gluten-Free Goodies Galore

One of the highlights of our visit was the variety of gluten-free options available. For those with dietary restrictions, finding a restaurant that offers delicious and safe choices can be a challenge. TugBoat Restaurant, however, delivers on this front with aplomb.

Our daughter ordered the TugBoat Burger, which comes with a side of cole slaw. As a cole slaw enthusiast, she was delighted with her choice and didn't even miss the fries, though they are also gluten-free. The burger was juicy, flavorful, and came on a gluten-free bun that didn't disappoint.

Savory Seafood Selections

For my meal, I opted for the Marina Fish Sandwich. While not gluten-free, it was a memorable choice with perfectly cooked fish and fresh toppings. My only minor gripe was the serving of tartar sauce?like many places, they didn't provide quite enough for my liking. But that's a small detail in an otherwise excellent meal.

A Raw Bar Delight

Seafood lovers will be thrilled to know that every item in TugBoat's Raw Bar is gluten-free. This is fantastic news for those who can't consume gluten but love fresh seafood. However, if you're like my daughter and not a fan of seafood, the Raw Bar might not hold much appeal.

Final Thoughts

Our dining experience at TugBoat Restaurant in Hyannis was a delightful one. With its lively atmosphere, friendly staff, and a wide range of gluten-free options, it's a fantastic choice for anyone, especially those with dietary restrictions. Whether you're in the mood for a hearty burger, a fresh seafood dish, or a simple yet satisfying cole slaw, TugBoat Restaurant has something to offer.

If you're planning a visit to Hyannis, make sure to add TugBoat Restaurant to your list. And don't forget to make a reservation to secure your spot in this very popular dining destination.

Gluten-free eating can be challenging in any big city, but especially in Boston due to the high number of restaurants and availability of options. I've been learning what I can to make sure my daughter can still enjoy eating out, and I want to share what I've learned so that other families in the same situation can benefit.
