    Omg this place is a hidden gem!!! The gluten free menu is HUGE and they said they prepare everything separately. My husband was thrilled to eat a gluten free crab cake and my daughter LOVED the grilled cheese. I even had a taste and the bread tastes fantastic!!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

    They were outstanding. My wife is gluten free and the crab cake it was great. They have a gluten free menu with more choices than any other place we ate at. The non-gluten free food was also excellent. 5 stars in my book.

    I absolutely love the GF crabcakes! I have Celiac and I have never been sick eating here. Recently garlic bread was accidentally placed in my to go bag, and the owner brought me new food and refunded me. I have been back since and feel very safe going there.

    ordered GF appetizers and we found out after eating them they were NOT GF. owner did not understand celiac implications and was not taking responsibility for the mix up (busy kitchen stuff happens) . my entree was of the daily special menu and was modified with a substitution to make it GF, it turned out good. they do have a good selection of GF seafood on the menu to choose from, however I would recommend you confirm what you received was indeed GF even though you ordered from the GF menu.

    The lure of a Maryland crab cake brought here. I was thirty miles away but it was certainly worth the trip. The food is excellent and I had no symptoms after. Sadly, the carrot cake has been scratched due to lack of interest. But after a crab cake sandwich on a GF bun, along with GF fries, I wouldn't have been able to eat it anyway!

    We were visiting our family for the valentines weekend and so many places were completely booked. However, I had remembered our friends recommending this place but had no idea they had gluten free recommendations. I had the stuffed shrimp platter with baked potato and veggies. The stuffed shrimp combo had crab cakes made with udi bread. Delicious. And for dessert I had gluten free carrot cake. Our waiter Rich was very helpful and knowledgeable as well as one of the owners. My husband and I will be visiting again. Awesome experience!

    Extensive GF menu. Gf calamari is amazing and they make gf crabcakes (fresh) that are amazing! Food was amazing all around. Service was great. The restaurant is pretty much empty every time we go but it's worth it for the food.

    Mira, our waitress was very knowledgeable about gf items. They have an extensive gf menu and even have gf Maryland crab cakes. They also list gf calamari as an appetizer. I didn't order it, but certainly will next time we visit. Great place and will definitely return.

    What a shock! Thank heaven for Find me Gf because we never would have thought this place would have anything Gf! Huge menu!! Staff is very helpful and the crab cake was yummy. Don't be disappointed by the lack of atmosphere, menu selection makes up for it.

    Update: The restaurant now has a printed gluten free menu which is the most extensive gluten free menu I have seen; food is delicious and nicely presented. Advance notice for gluten free crabcakes is no longer necessary. ----------------------------------- Delicious greek salad, chicken souvlaki, crab cakes, and more can be made gluten free and delicious. Owners understand cross contamination and are careful to avoid it. Their crab cakes are huge and delicious....best to call before you go to the restaurant to give them a heads-up that you plan to go there and need gluten free crabcakes.
