The glider tables outside were a lot of fun, their crab dip appetizer was gluten free, AND their crab cakes!!! Little on the pricey side, but good food!

Many of their appetizers are gluten free and can be served with corn chips. I had broiled flounder which was cooked perfectly. My husband had a lobster roll which he said was delicious. Overall is was a tasty meal in a marina atmosphere.

The food and service were both good. Like most seafood places, no dedicated fryer but they were accommodating and knowledgeable. We had a good experience.

This place was a great. Felt like a little hidden gem. They have a separate GF menu, my only critique on it is the menu is like a search and find. The GF menu doesn’t describe the food, but you find it on the main menu. A lot of GF alternatives, the food was delicious, and the service was great. She was very friendly, attentive, and helpful. Definitely recommend

Great place to eat! They have a gluten free menu with many choices. And the waitress came and checked to make sure that my crab cake was GF! I did NOT have a issue with sickness after eating there, will definitely eat there again in the future!

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.
