There is not a single gluten free item on the menu, and the bartenders/servers look at you like you just asked them to roast a live octopus you dragged in from the gulf when you ask for gluten free options. Fun place for drinks if youre looking for the college beach town feel of sweaty bodies packing in a bar full of old people, screaming over live music, and choking down smoke from those around you.

Be careful if you are celiac. Our waiter was very friendly and checked multiple times with the kitchen to ensure my meal was GF. I ordered the cajun salmon with potatoes and slaw. My meal tasted amazing, HOWEVER, I noticed my cajun sauce looked thick like gravy. I checked with the waiter again and he asked the kitchen, again. Turns out there is a small amount of wheat in the cajun sauce. Thankfully I only had a couple bites and by the grace of God, didn't get sick! The manager was friendly and comped my meal, but unfortunately the damage had already been done.

Staff had no knowledge of gluten free. She told me I could get broccoli. Was also told the kitchen would have cross contamination.

You are able to get any of the seafood broiled or grilled. There is not a dedicated fryer, so no French fries. The staff was very friendly - the chef came out to discuss my allergy. The quality of the food was good.

Wait staff very knowledgeable about gluten free options. Go early or late, always crowded. Husband said the fried shrimp were the BEST he has ever had, he has eaten fried shrimp all over the US. Food take A WHILE to come out. Our first visit we waited 45 minutes to be seated, an hour for our food. It had to have been good for us to come back after a horrible dinner at another establishment. Our 2nd visit they compted our food due to the wait time for it.

Great place! Go early to beat the crowd. Many GF options and delish too. They don’t have a dedicated fryer. Staff worked well to accommodate my families needs. Had the citrus chicken and it was so moist!

This place doesn’t have GF breads and goodies!! But still accommodating. They do cook gf items separately, so that’s pretty awesome!! I order 2 poached eggs well done, slices of tomatoes, 2 chicken sausages and grits with butter and cheese. It was soooo delicious... can’t wait to go back.

I called before arriving to ask about gluten free options. The person who answered the phone did go talk to the chef before going over gf options. My waiter was also knowledgeable about gf options as well. Food was good and I did not get sick. Will be back.

They had a menu with things gluten free marked with a black dot, but I did not feel the waiter knew what celiac was or understand my question about cross contamination. I did get sick afterwards which seemed to further solidify this.

The food and service was great! I've gone here every year on vacation with family for about 10 years. Luckily they have a gluten free menu so I can still enjoy the food! They are changing their menus so some of my old favorites are gone, but I was still able to order food. Sandy was a very helpful waitress and she had knowledge of Celiac.

I got the Carolina BBQ Chicken with greens beans and rice/black beans. Very good! The waiter's girlfriend has celiac so he was very attentive.
