    I found the food to be quite good and tried the GF gumbo, GF crab cakes and some steamed clams. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed it.

    We frequently eat here. Fresh seafood, gluten free crab cakes and other options. Staff always very friendly. Very large collection of exotic spices for sale as well as wines in their market area.

    Three of us stopped and ate gluten free. There is NO separate gluten free fryer as it mentions. The wait staff was extremely nice, and knowledgable, that is the plus side of our eating experience. My clams were so sandy I couldn't eat them, and my husbands scallops were too. I ordered the salmon and it was very dry, and left most of my meal. My daughter had the ribs and that is the only thing she ate from her plate besides the baked apples. My husband had a large sampler plate ($34) and left most all of it. I don't recommend the food, nor would I stop again.

    Super friendly-very knowledgable-separate GF menu-dedicated fryer! Great food! I had GF crab cakes, fried shrimp and fried scallops-unheard of anywhere else usually have to eat broiled. Soups were GF too! She crab soup was like crab stew so thick with crabmeat and yummy. Live in NJ so definitely stopping back on our way home!!

    I didnt eat here (not a seafood lover) but my family did- did see that they offer GF selections on menu (crab cakes, salad, soups) Also have GF stuff in their store area. Great place, very unexpected. "Normal" food very good per the fam (hubby is very particular about soft shell crabs and said he'd go again).

    On a long, long road with few options for any food at all, I was thrilled to find a place to eat. And a gluten free crab cake? Unheard of! The menu has a number of items, as does the store. Great find!
