Food was tasty though I missed the Old Bay seasoning in my crab pot. Server asked what I wanted instead of potatoes thinking potatoes had gluten in them. Staff needs better training about food allergies. I didn’t get sick so that is a plus.

I had the Cajun pot. Very good and no changes required for gluten free, just pricey. Refer to the online gluten free menu for options. Wait times were very long to be seated due to being short staffed, but food was good!

The staff had zero information on gluten free options, and had none of the gluten friendly menus they offer on the website. The manager came out and was also pretty clueless on what options were available. They were not busy at all, the restaurant and bathroom is dirty. I would not recommend this to anyone. Please save your gluten eating friends from this restaurant too. My gluten eating family members food came out cold also. Not one person in our party was happy with their meal.

Celiacs get one choice of seasoning on crab, Old Bay. If you have kids, ask to go light on the Old Bay. Corn and potatoes in the steam pot are safe. Waitress and staff accommodating.
