What a great menu. The service was great & food sensational when we took it home. The lady serving us was above & beyond honest about what was good & not as good by asking our tastes. It was a little expensive but the great food made it very enjoyable.

Big sign on the wall listed items available as GF, which was encouraging. However when I asked about how the chips are cooked, was told the oil was a 'few days old' (gross!) and that it would have other 'stuff' in it. ie. NOT gluten free! Pays to ask.

Our chips are Gluten Free and if you had stayed long enough I would have been able to explain that once our oil has had other products cooked in it that contain wheat, gluten etc, it then has the gluten protiens in the oil.

We inform people who are Gluten Intolerant out of courtesy as it depends on their level of sensitivity as to whether they can tolerate this or not.

In regards to your "(gross)" comment - Our oil is an Australian blended vegetable oil that we change every 3 to 5 days which is much more frequently than most shops that fry. We also filter our oil twice a day to maintain its freshness and quality and at $50 plus for one 20 litre drum (each vat taking 25 to 35 litrs of oil) it is a substancial investment maintaining this frequency.

We have lots of Gluten Free items on the board that are not cooked in oil; ie
Steamed Fish with Lemon and Rosemary
Steak and salad - with or without chips
Grilled fish
Steamed Seafood parcels (fish, prawns & scallops) with Garlic butter, lemon and Rosemary
Assorted Salads
Steamed Corn on the Cob
GF pitta bread that you could have a wrap made with.
Baked Potatoe's with toppings

So you are correct Kel H.........it does pay to ask.

kind regards

Yuk!
Very friendly service however the fish was very average. Chips nice and crunchy however everything else failed.

We head to Lorne once every 2 months as escape from the city. Getting lunch from the Salty Dog on Saturday has ebcome a tradition to us. The service is always outstanding and the value for money; even moreso.
I'd recommend the chocolate and banana spring rolls, they are amazing!
