Dishes range from appetizers to salmon entrees. I had the shaved prime rib dip. Average bread, short on meat. Others in our group had the fried chicken and said it was great. All around, service and food average.

Service, service, food. Those seem to be the top 3 priorities at Culinary Dropout. The front door was opened for us, we were welcomed genuinely and explained the lay of the land as first-timers. From there, the grilled cheese sliders were great and the fall-off-the-bone...More

It accommodates both. When we were leaving there was a couple sitting in the outside patio with twins about 2 years old and she had enough room for her double stroller and the kids were having a good time.

I do not believe that Culinary Dropout has a glutten free menu, but Olive and Ivy which is about a 3 minute walk around the corner on the waterfront does.
