    Eh nothing special. Just has fresh seafood dishes. We didn't even order anything because it was just a weird menu. I would have had to order a salad. Had a drink and left.

    I really wanted to give a good review for this spot but I feel like such shit after eating here it is really hard to say anything nice. Yes, they have a GF menu and it is pretty large. The server was friendly and acted like she understood my whole gf spiel but by the time I finished my entree I was feeling the stomach pain of a glutening. Super nauseous the car ride home and had to leave our guests while I was stuck in the bathroom the rest of the night. Disappointed.

    Great place to eat and drink. I get migraines if I get gluten'd and I always feel good after eating here, no migraines. Come here every May with my family. The coconut whoopie pies and basil blueberry crumble were out of this world.

    I've gotten sick the last three times eating here. I've eaten here maybe 10 times since going gluten free. I have walked away four times without a reaction. The other six I have gotten sick, ranging from feeling ill to completely glutened and messed up for days. Delicious food, but I can't take the risk anymore.

    We went here based on the reviews from this app. the food is amazing but it should be known that it is definately not gluten free when they say it is. My son, 10, with Celiac, ordered the gf chicken tenders with fries. we were horrified to learn after he ate his meal, that the food from this restaurant is all fried in the same oil. we explained to the server that it is not correct to say this food is gluten free. After talking with them we learned this place has little understanding what gluten free means. my son experienced being sick afterwards. we regret going here.

    The berry brûlée was excellent and the wait staff was knowledgable about the menu. The fish tostadas were good but a bit too spicy. I would definitely enjoy going here again!

    This place was amazing! We have been meaning to try it and finally went. Would recommend making a reservation. They were so accommodating of gluten-free/celiac needs. They personally came out from the kitchen to clarify my dietary restrictions. Great service and food! Lobster mashed potatoes are amazing.

    The food here was so delicious! Menu changes daily and has options for gf appetizers, light fare, entrees and dessert! They use local and organic produce and fish bought right from the docks outside! Staff was very knowledgable, would highly recommend!

    Great place! My hussband loved his "normal" crabcake and I loved my gf options. They were also amazing with my other soy and dairy problems. I love that everything is so fresh, and when possible local. They label the menu very clearly and the waitstaff is familiar with what they have to offer. We LOVED the cauliflower head appetizer. It was gf/sf/df, but tasted like broccoli and cheese. The micro greens added the nicest bit of bite to it, too. Fresh, informed, and wonderful!
