Service was terrible and the food was worse. I explained I was gluten free (celiac) and asked what was safe to eat. I ordered the salad with no croutons and the broiled scallops. The salad came out with croutons. I let the waitress know that I couldn’t eat it and her reply was they will take the croutons off. 🤦🏻‍♀ I then explained that I couldn’t eat it and I would need a new salad. She snapped at me and brought out another salad very quickly. I am pretty sure they just took the croutons off. The broiled scallops came out and they were swimming in water. They had zero flavor and they were inedible. I ate one scallop and the hoped the waitress would come back. She only returned once everyone was done. She asked if I wanted a to go box and I let her know it wasn’t good. She said she would take it to the chef and let him try it. She came back out a few minutes later and said they will not be talking anything off of our bill, but they can package it up if we want to take it home. Seriously, the meal was terrible, the service was terrible and it is a pricey place. I expected good service and great food and was terribly disappointed. I ended up getting sick too. Don’t waste your money or your gut on this place.

Great upscale dinner! We got the grab claws without the bread and the broiled scallops with potatoes and vegetables! Outstanding gluten free dinner and they were very accommodating!

This place is in a lovely old house and is a wonderful place to eat. I’ve eaten here numerous times and always felt confident the staff knows what they are doing. No GF menu but there are several fish, steak, and other seafood items that are safe and at least a couple of side choices.

Ordered grill seafood. Specifically told the waitress that I have celiacs and cannot have gluten. The grilled seafood platter arrived. Tasted okay, and then I found the huge slab or bread that all the seafood was sitting upon. We left. Specifically told the waitress. Don’t go.

This must have at one point been a really fancy restaurant food now tastes like what you’d find at sizzler.
