I went with some friends to have a seafood dinner. The food was OK but not special (all the seafood was a bit dry) and the portions were modest. Overly expensive for the quality. The surrounding area is lovely though.

I do believe they have gluten-free options however I don't follow those guidelines so you'd best call to find out if it doesn't state on their website which it probably does. Good luck!

I wish I could help, but, honestly, since I order the same thing each time I visit I do not know for sure. I could only suggest you check their website or call them directly to be sure.
