A few items marked GF on the menu. Some items such as Mahi & Swordfish GF, but grouper (just described as blackened/grilled/steamed no side or preparation noted) was not marked GF. We had 1 GF & 1 GF/DF in our party of 4. We ordered from items marked GF. 4 meals came out, some wrong, didn’t know which plate was whose. Our server made him take it back to the kitchen and said we have allergies and they need to figure it out. All the fish was SUPER over cooked, super dry and terrible. Our bill for 3 dry, bad mahi meals and one appetizer eaten as a meal was $180 with a 20% tip. The standard side of barely-steamed, raw green beans, carrots and broccoli trio had zero seasoning (including the plate with zero allergies). It was all bad. Can’t recommend.

Would not return. Food came to table not what I ordered. Waiter had to be called back to table to assist us several times. Food was Not good, mine or my husband’s. Maybe after COVID things will change.

Great location right on the marsh! GF marked clearly on the menu! Our service was terrible though... Our appetizers came out after our dinners..like way after.. Our waiter apologized and brought us extra hush puppies and soup (for my non-gf family) and didn't charge us.. Crabs were fresh though.

It gets NO stars as far as I am concerned! Question my waiter several times about the hollandaise saucepan the oysters Rockefeller had on it only to be told it was for sure gluten free. After a few bites of that I was NOT feeling well. By the time I got home I was terribly sick. It's going to take days to feel better now that I have been gluten ! Got everything else to go . When I got home I called and asked to speak to the manger, Dave. He didn't seem to care I was sick and said he went back to the kitchen to check himself . Would NOT recommend you eat there if you have any type of gluten allergy or celiac disease!! Not safe & they DONT care!

The waitress had no idea what I was talking about when I told her I had a gluten allergy. I should have known better from the menu with entire entire thing filled with fried foods. I didn’t feel comfortable eating anything there due to possible cross contamination in the kitchen and lack of knowledge from our waitress. I ended up ordering the crab legs and corn on the cob. Well the corn on the cob was completely watered down; I think I had 2 bites. The crab legs were lack luster and didn’t fit the name of the restaurant. They left little to be desired and I was not impressed. This place is in the Harbor area and it is one of the touristy places on the island. I couldn’t recommend this place for gluten free folks. and for that matter, I wouldn't even recommend it for people without food allergies.
