    Possibly the worst dining experience I've ever had at a restaurant that advertises a gluten free menu. I am awake at 2 am to tell you about it because I got poisoned. After the hostess showed us to our seats (at a table that obviously hadn't been wiped down) I asked for a gluten free menu. While she got that I used the regular menu to corral all the bread crumbs on the table into a central location and asked if she would wipe it down when she returned because I was very allergic to bread. She picked up the biggest crumbs and that was it - never wiped it down with a rag or anything. I had to use my own napkin to wipe up all the water spots and remaining crumbs. I ordered the mussels and asked they be extra diligent as I was very sensitive. "Wow really? That sucks," the waiter replied. We never got our appetizer and my mussels showed up without the sauce and with bread. The guy picked the bread up off the mussels and handed it to me. I hate to be a pain in a restaurant but since it didn't have the sauce it was supposed to come with it was easy to send back. It came back out with bread again. While our server never did manage to bring us out missing appetizer or get my order right, he did spend lots of time telling us about the bugs he had on his feet that wouldn't go away, getting a DUI and getting beaten up by four guys on his birthday, his bout with chlamidya (in pretty graphic detail) and how he got lap dances for free from strippers. We all laughed uncomfortably because we didn't know what to do but he was oblivious. Twice more throughout the meal he let me know "it must suck to be you" to be so sensitive to gluten. No sir, it will suck to be you when I write the owners a letter.

    The menu is robust. Service was horrible. Food was not spectacular. I got the scallops at "market price". Not impressed. Good place if you like that southern type fried like foods. I have never been a fan, but one of the only local restaurants that offer a gluten free menu that doesn't require fancy clothes and a black credit card. Update: I for sure got glutened. On my way home now and the wrath of gluten is starting.

    Locals do not eat here. Mediocre food with long lines - great tourist trap sponsored by Southern Living. Lived in Charleston 12 years - ate here twice - my first and last time . ;)

    Really good food, fun environment and good service (at bar). They have a robust GF menu, just missing cider and dessert. I had the scallops and they were delicious. Will definitely be back.
