The waiter was kind and tried to accommodate our needs my son and daughter are gluten free and I’m dairy free. The had the gluten free items were marked on the kids menu. They worked with me on my food allergies and made it where they could make me a steamer pot. Nice staff and our food came quickly and our drinks never were dry.

My husband is Celiac and we both had the pick n peel shrimp appetizer with a steampot. It was good! They only have a gluten free menu online.

Your choices are a Steampot or Grilled Fish. They were upfront about not having a dedicated fryer and also omitted butter sauce on my fish and broccoli to keep me safe.

Food was good. When I got the GF menu was excited however on closer inspection there was not a large variety to choose from. Was lots of steamed pots which I didn’t want settled for blackened mani mani with veg and potatoes. Was nice to sit in the window and people watch.

Had high hopes for this place, but it started off with the shrimp in my steam pot not being cleaned properly. Manager was nice and took money off the bill. I thought all precautions were taken because my steam pot came out in a different thing than my husbands. After getting back to our condo, I was up sick all night. So, some kind of cross contact did end up happening and I ended up sick. This hasn't happened to me in a long time. I really was hoping for a good experience here.

Food was honestly terrible. Extremely bland, they didn’t even have salt on it. I was very disappointed.
