Went off season. Been here about 5 yrs ago & was fine. Read the recent review so I made sure to let them know it was an allergy!salad came out fine (I did not ask for dressing as it includes an avocado)-portion was huge and only ate half. Had the steam pot of queen crab legs. I detected no seasoning (good) and enjoyed them. Drawn butter was ok, not like fresh butter you would have at home. It came with potatoes and an ear of corn I was too full to eat but looked plain & steamed. Did not get sick, huge portions. $$$ Bill was $100 for 2 people!

They had a GF menu, which my daughter and I ordered from. We each got a salad. When they arrived, they both had croutons on it. Sent it back. Won’t go back there.

A very small GF menu. The menu in the store didn't match the online menu. There are a few extra things online. If you don't like seafood then steak or salad is your only option. I had the steak, steamed potatoes and corn. I can't say the steak was great, but at least I didn't have to sit and watch my family eat. I didn't get sick afterwards.

Very accomodating for me it's hard to find GFCF food. their steamed pots are awesome just ask for no sausage and no hush puppies and avoid the Sam Adams pot.

LOVE THE FOOD AND SERVICE!!!! Will, the manager and Daniel our server are awesome. The GF menu may seem small but Daniel and Will worked with us and made several awesome dishes. I was worried that our first wonderful experience would be just that. One time wonder. However, after our second visit, it is with great pleasure to day it was awesome. If you can, ask for Daniel. He too has food sensitivity, so he is thorough.

There was a very small menu and not many sides. I left hungry and over paid for 12 shrimp I had to order twice due to them putting seasoning on it at first. The staff was great just not a good restaurant for celiac customers.

Food was okay, others at my table (non-GF) really enjoyed their meals; make sure you want seafood as this is what is mostly offered on their GF menu. Staff seemed somewhat knowledgeable.

As mentioned before, they have a small gf menu, our Server seemed knowledgeable and said he marked my order of the peel & eat shrimp (cold, lemon only) and garden salad as gf. However, when the salad came out, it had croutons on it! I promptly said “I can’t eat that and need a whole new salad prepared please”! Server left the salad at our table so i could see they made a fresh one. They were prompt with the new salad and our original Server apologized and said he had marked the order gf, the kitchen was just not paying attention. I did not get sick but I would be very careful here. They do have outside seating and are dog friendly too.

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.
