Delicious food. Eat here twice a week and never get sick. Just make sure you tell your waiter. Shrimp and grits minus the bbq sauce, still delicious. Grilled or blackened catch of the day is great. Grits, veggies, beans, peel and eat shrimp, all fine. Very reliable gluten free food.

Staff very good about celiac/GF options. Steak came out a bit too rare but they remedied it and apologized.

Had a separate menu for their gluten free items and bar selection! Their food was excellent and the servers let the kitchen know when I placed my order.

Had oysters (garlic and lemon), Catch of the day (flounder) and bacon wrapped green beans and sautéed veggies and my side and a salad with ranch. The restaurant was extremely busy which made me nervous but they do have a tangible gluten free menu. Hostess was rude but I got my menu nonetheless. The waitress didn’t seem knowledgeable but I’m assuming they have a gluten free button on their handhelds because all my food came out great. The salad wasn’t great, the fish was excellent and the sautéed veggies (zuch squash and red onion) was fantastic. Bacon wrapped green beans were not crispy so I wouldn’t recommend. Oyster was good, can’t really say much there, it was expensive but my husband said they were good. Everyone else in our party loves their food so it was an overall good experience.

Very knowledgeable staff; separate GF menu. I had the bbq shrimp and grits, which were great, but more of a sweet-and-sour flavor than bbq. Ice cream for dessert, but my family had the butter cake, which they said was amazing. There was a long wait.

Gluten free menu, service was casual & friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed a fresh & delicious salad with blackend shrimp. Also peel n eats were fresh and perfectly cooked. The tartar sauce was tangy, Cajun butter to dip in was a new taste profile for me and yummy! If you like oysters, they shuck them fresh at the bar.

Had a steak and green bean bacon bundles off their GF menu. Told our server to let kitchen know we have a Celiac with us. The food was pretty good. Service was good but it's popular so get there early or make a reservation.
