We had the Captain's Platter and the scallops & shrimp were the biggest and best we've ever had and we've traveled all over. The green fried tomatoes with grits were great..and I'm from Alabama and have high standards. Don't miss out!

Their bio says gluten free options, but their server was so completely uninformed about gluten-free options we left without ordering. If a restaurant wants to claim they can accommodate people with Celiac, they have to provide training for their staff. Our party of 5 included...More

Yes they are. They even give them a bowl of water. Restaurant suggested making a reservation to guarantee a table so you don't have to wait too long. Enjoy your visit and take a picture for Trip Advisor. Sue S.
