    Ordered take out. I had a crab cake and baked potato. It was excellent and I did not have a reaction.

    I have 7 food allergies so having several food options is rare. I had the crab cake blackened. I haven't had crab cakes in years and it was amazing.

    Pleasant staff, great burgers and steak. Mom's seafood alfredo was mostly good, though she didn't like the fish part; it was dark unappealing meat. But the pasta, shrimp, and scallops were good. A bit pricey, but being by the ocean, it's to be expected. Dedicated gluten-free menu.

    I was there pre gluten free menu...but no one I was with had food worth eating. I ordered a salad with oil and vinegar dressing and the oil was rancid. I had a tuna steak which was way over cooked.

    If I could give this place a negative amount of stars I would. My boyfriend had a steak and I had the crab cakes. His steak was obviously cooked before we arrived and reheated for our order. It was dried out and tasteless. My crab cakes were mush and flavorless. I've never eaten cat food but if I did I imagine what I had for dinner that night would be very close to the experience. Our "vegetable medley" was undercooked summer squash and and zucchini with canned corn thrown in. Yes, CANNED corn. Outside of the food being a complete abomination the interior was cheap and felt like a Captain D's dining room. Relatives that live near by have informed me that most people only go here for the outdoor bar and I can't imagine any other way this place could stay open if their food is what we experienced. They do have a separate gluten free menu unlike many other places in the area but it isn't worth it. I paid $27 for my cat food cakes but we did have the staff take off the steak seeing as it was beyond the classification of "food." The staff was friendly enough and offered to comp the steak without us having to ask. I would never ever step foot into this place again.

    Nice restaurant and staff. Food was delicious, however, I cannot be 100 percent sure that my meal was gluten free as I did not feel great afterward. Since I am not sure what caused this, I recommend Celiacs be wary and be sure to ask a lot of questions.
