We went back today after a long time. We used to get the steamed crab. They changed their policy and share the water they steam the crab in with the pasta. So if you have Celiac you will be at risk. Be ware.

Food was good but got glutened by them. I told the server I had a severe gluten allergy and she told me everything I ordered was safe. My shrimp skewer came over rice that had orzo pasta mixed in it. Best part was she told me orzo was just healthier rice

Waiter was very knowledgeable and what he wasn't sure about, he went and asked. Got the snow crab legs with crispy potatoes. It was amazing and did not disappoint! They also have crustless cheesecake, but I didn't have room to try it.

I had an absolutely fantastic meal here. Every single measure was taken to avoid cross-contact. They brought all of my food was brought to the table first management over saw every single aspect of my dinning experience and honesty treated me better than I have ever been treated in an establishment pre or post celiac. The staff says this is an newly implemented precaution. It provided an amazing experience. The food was wonderful.

They provided a large spreadsheet with a checklist of applicable common dietary restrictions for every menu item. I didn’t think it was too difficult to comprehend especially if you have a general idea of what you want to eat (but I’m also an engineer). The food was very good!

My salmon and loaded baked potato were incredible. However, it took an hour to get our food. I don’t know if that’s a fluke or no.

Also, it is so hard to navigate the allergen menu. It would be nice if they could label on menu.
