I informed my server that I was both gf and egg intolerant. She seemed very experienced and very sympathetic to my needs. She asked me what I was interested in ordering and I told her the purloo special. She said she was sure that would work for me. Sadly I was sick the next day. So sad since I loved this restaurant prior to my diagnosis.

We had the low country boil for 2. It was alright. The shrimp were extremely overdone and super hard to peel. The listing should say crab legs so you can make sure to have the right tools to eat them— we did not.

The side of grits were amazing and very tasty!

**PLEASE NOTE_- they are not open for dine-in during the pandemic. We only found this out by driving to the restaurant. It is not listed anywhere that I can find.

I loved this place so much that I returned for a second visit during our trip to celebrate my birthday. Both visits I had the shrimp and grits which was delicious. My family all enjoyed their gluten options as well. We sat outside and enjoyed the entertainment. There was a different singer for our 2 visits at dinner and they were both good.

Amazing service and a large menu. Really cool outdoor atmosphere (visited in Feb so the weather was gorgeous). We got the Homemade Lowcountry Pimento Cheese (tortilla chips only) and the May River Blue Crab Dip (no flatbread); both were quite good. For entrees we had the Seafood Purloo and Potato Chip Meatloaf. Both dishes were passable, but neither wowed us. Definitely a safe option with plenty of choices, though we would skip this on future visits given the number of other options on HHI.

We have eaten here on previous visits. They have items marked on their menu. I called ahead and they say they handle it often and have no hesitation. They told me on the phone they can do GF bread and cook it in a skillet separately. The server was knowledgeable. They make a meatloaf with potato chips and that is what the 2 Celiacs in our family ordered. One had a salad and the mashed potatoes which she really enjoyed. The other had the mashed potatoes and their very good lima beans. We did not have dessert, but if you ask they can specially make up the banana pudding to be GF (it is not marked on the menu as GF). Eat outside to get the full ambiance of the place. Great experience.

Went for dinner last night -- many GF options (including a GF banana pudding)! Crab dip was also delicious! Wait staff seemed knowledgable.

We visited again 10/2017 and food was okay. I wasn't impressed with the quality.

To the point, no celiac issue.

Server understood celiac disease concerns, and menu indicated items with no gluten ingredients. Ordered a southern salad with grilled shrimp and a moonshine cocktail, as it had the last chance of cross contamination. It was quite good.

Seemed very busy, so a bit slow. Consider this if you have some time to wait.

Great restaurant! Fun environment, knowledgeable staff, and lots of GF options clearly marked. I have other food sensitivities and our waitress even went to consult the recipe book to make sure there were not any ingredients that I couldn't eat. I could not recommend it more.

This is a literal local gem!! Our family has been here for decades and no one had heard of this little spot. it's tucked away in a small Plaza, when you pull up you see a beautiful outdoor area. very cozy and quaint. We went for Sunday Brunch, and it was great everyone loved their entrees--except my husband's grits with his shrimp and grits was more like oatmeal. The flavor of the sausage and shrimp was spot on but the grits were a bit disappointment. We also tried their $3 mimosas. Instead of picking between their two options, we combined the cranberry and orange juice and coined it, "The Sunrise Mimosa". We will definitely be back here. They took our allergies very serious and everything is marked on the menu. Give this spot a shot!

In fairness, we decided to pass. When we asked about their kitchen practices to avoid cross contamination the owner was honest and said they have no dedicated anything in the kitchen...that spatulas, tongs, etc are used on all orders so this place would be a nightmare for anyone who truly has Celiac. I applaud the owner's honesty and the menu looked wonderful, with little GF marks by many dishes, but the fact is that with their "very small kitchen" as he put it and their self-described lack of ANY attentiveness to the dangers of cross contamination, this could be a real, legitimate danger to anyone who is truly at the Celiac level of gluten intolerance.

Service wasnt that great and about a 50 minute wait to be seated but if you're looking for a southern home cooked like meal, this is the place. Food was a bit pricey. I ordered the potato chip meatloaf and mash potatoes and it really was delicious. Would mostly recommend unless you don't have time to wait.

This place is sooo cute. Gluten free items are indicated on the menu. I got to wait on the bench swing while my take out order was prepared. I had the shrimp grits & side of apple raisin cole slaw. FYI service is slower but they do make note of this with signage since they have a small kitchen. Will be visiting again if I get to the chance!

I have celiac so I am extremely careful about where I dine out. Low Country has a phenomenal menu for both celiacs and the normal folks like my husband. I explained to the server that I was celiac and she explained to me that the owner has always tried to be gluten friendly but this past year has taken steps to make all of their sauces gluten free! You can get just about any sandwich GF and they use Udis bread. I had the BBQ meatloaf with apple slaw and creamcheese mashed potatoes. It was delicious! The meatloaf is made with potato chips instead of bread crumbs and the BBQ sauce was yummy and GF. They have a GF beer but I Opted for wine. I cannot wait to go back next week and try something else. And have their GF banana pudding made with homemade GF shortbread cookies!!!

Very good and no problems at all. We are here twice during our stay. Had the bbq chicken sandwich with pimento cheese the first time which was great! The second visit I ordered the burger and it wasn't the best (but that was my fault because the waitress warned me that the bun makes the burger and obviously I couldn't have the bun)

Extremely disappointed. Attempted dinner here and left because of the wait time. Went for lunch the next day. Ordered the crab dip and felt sick right after, too fishy. Ordered the potato chip meatloaf with cream cheese whipped potatoes. The meatloaf was cold and the potatoes were barely warm. Terrible service. They returned our meatloaf back and it was still not hot!! Barely ate the food, spent all that money and still got sick.

Cute dining spot. We ate brunch here on Sunday. The gf crab dip was rich and thick, cheesy and full of delicious crab. We had the gf shrimp and grits. The portions were generous and the dish was hot, and full of perfectly cooked shrimp and creole sausage. We had a gf banana pudding. I did not care for it as it had a strong cream cheese taste rather than a whipped creme/ pudding flavor that I am used to. It was served in a mason jar (so cute), had fresh banana slices and was not overly sweet. My daughter really liked it. The host and server were attentive but not overly friendly. It was a scorcher of an afternoon hitting nearly 100 degrees when we arrived and we sat outside in the shady patio. Even though it was lovely, it was just so hot. There were other patrons there with children playing games. This place is charming, casual with an authentic atmosphere. There are lots of gf choices sited on the regular menu.
