    I have always loved this ace...but since I have had to be GF, i haven't been. We went for family dinner last night and when I asked for their GF menu, the waitress told me they did not have one and cannot guarantee the safety of anything. Knowing steamed crab is safe, I ordered the steamed Alaskan crab, no seasoning. Good visit but be warned, the list if things here is not what is actually at this particular location.

    Amazing food. Great service and we got to watch Dolphins swim during our meal. Did not have a reaction. Staff very knowledgable and they have a gluten free menu.

    This place was delicious!! I ordered the shrimp and grits and didn't get glutened. I really appreciated how on their menu it asked for comments regarding their GF menu. Places always looking to improve attract me because we should never stop learning!

    The food was good. They have a gf menu and they seem to be knowledgeable about gf issues. They even ask for feedback on their gf menu, so they can improve their options. My only complaint was that the gf food was unnecessarily lacking in seasoning. The mahi was very good, in spite of the fact that it seemed to have no seasoning at all. With salt, pepper and lemon, it was still a very yummy meal. My family thoroughly enjoyed the gf crabpot. We'll return!

    Cheesy shrimp and grits and cole slaw were awesome. The gluten-free menu had a nice array of choices. The server was knowledgeable about GF restrictions, but the service was slow.

    No GF Menu, but they made modifications. I had the grilled shrimp in regular butter (standard is w/breadcrumbs) grits & beans. It was delicious. Server was very nice.

    Clueless and uncaring server didn't listen and brought me a drink with Stolis instead of what I asked for - Smirnoff. Now I'm going to be very sick. Waaaaaa.

    They no longer have a gluten free menu. My waitress was not knowledgeable of what had gluten. I should have taken her suggestion of a salad with no croutons. I got the grilled trio. The seafood was bland and chewy. Please use caution if you eat here, I'm up at 3:30 am with gluten symptoms.

    Very tasty. I had the shrimp and grits. No trouble. Ask them to grill shrimp in separate pan.

    The GF menu offered a nice selection, including shrimp and grits. After careful questioning and an extremely helpful server, I was satisfied that the grits were truly gluten free, i.e. they use cream, no breading, and nothing is fried. It was also determined that the collard greens were safe as well. One of the biggest things to watch out for is how they cook the meat. I found out that they cook the shrimp on a shared grill and it is highly possibly that whatever sauce has previously been used will cross contaminate GF food. I was happy that the server was able to have the cooks use a separate pan to cook my GF shrimp in.

    Staff was GF knowledgable and accommodating. Separate GF Menu that had several choices. Had the shrimp and crab combo platter for lunch. Had the grits and shrimp appetizer and it was very good. They brought the BBQ sauce on the side for my friend.

    Gluten free menu available upon request. It looks small, but it gives a good range on seafood and side options, so there a number of combinations you could put together. I ended up with the gluten free Cheesy Shrimp and Grits - it was quite tasty and filling.

    GF menu is pretty big. This is a chain and the food quality is pretty good but not as good as other options in Charleston. My Mahi was very overdone/dry but the shrimp & scallops were good. The collard greens were delicious! Shrimp & grits were very tasty!!

    They must have redone the menu since the first reviewer went there. It is now front and back with 5 or 6 sides listed. I had a wonderful meal last night! I recommend the cheesy shrimp and grits. Soooooo good!!! The staff was super friendly even though my friend and I went in 15min before the kitchen closed. I didn't like the Dark and Stormy cocktail I ordered, so they offered to make me a new one and only charged me for the second drink.

    This restaurant's gf menu was very bland. It was just a white sheet of printer paper with some things typed up. The items included salad (no croutons), steamed shrimp, crab, mahi mahi etc (no seasoning or butter). Didn't even list one side. The food was OK.
