We had a large group and it was handled very well by the staff. The food was served promptly and of high quality. I had the grilled salmon and it was very, very good.

Great atmosphere with a wide variety of food and an accommodating staff. Just a few minutes from the Grand Hotel and always seems to be busy. I would certainly recommend and I will personally return ASAP!

Sorry for the delayed response. Shorts are FINE at The Wash House, thank you for question, however buttoned shirt with shorts is the norm especially when it's still, "warm even for down here." Enjoy!

I don't recall seeing gluten free options on the menu, however, I cannot be sure. It is probably best if you contact them directly.
