Delicious food and wonderful service. Some of the best seafood I have had in a long time. Dedicated fryer and knowledgeable about celiac disease. If you are in Birmingham. It is worth a visit.

Absolutely incredible! I have been here several times now and everything I have had has been amazing. They take celiac very seriously and have more options than most and I can eat the fried oysters and the fried fish! Seriously this is a great option for a nice night out. The menu changes daily according to availability just Makes sure you get a reservation and you won’t regret it. I am a very sensitive celiac and have never gotten sick here.

To start with, the server was really helpful. Asked if I was celiac. She then explained which dishes would be most suitable.

The fish was amazing - so fresh. Just sorry we had no room for dessert.

Great meal!

They use rice flour to fry most of their foods. Almost every dish is either GF or can be made GF. Our waiter checked with the chef to confirm the dish I ordered was GF. They also have a separate dedicated fryer. It was a great dinner!

Enjoyed our dinner here. Staff is knowledgeable. Fried food is breaded in rice flour but the fryer isn’t dedicated GF. Our waitress even let me know that my husband’s appetizer had trace amounts of gluten in case we normally share food.

They have a dedicated fryer and *almost* anything can be made gluten free. My server was very knowledgeable and it made my experience worry-free. The food was also fantastic.

Incredible! The food was excellent and they have a dedicated GF fried and use only GF soy sauce. This is a new favorite for sure.

Loved the atmosphere. The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable. The chef said they use rice flour and a dedicated fryer. Apparently everything on the menu can be made GF with the exception of the bread, fish and chips and dessert. New favorite!

Most menu items are gluten free. Halibut was the best entree! Fantastic atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
