I gave four stars instead of five simply because the service here can be a little slow. The food is always amazing. I love the blackend salmon on ceasar salad, tuna and avacado grill, or black and blue salad for lunch. The scallop dinner is...More

My husband and I love to go for dinner on weekends. It's one of our favorite places to go. They have so many and different plates to try. The fish is excellent. You will not be disappointment. Right in the heart of Brighton.

I am not sure what gluten free options are on their menu. Looking online at their menu may clarify this or contacting them by phone.

You can self park. It's in downtown Brighton and the city lots should have handicapped parking. I don't think you'll need reservations for 3:30. It's a casual dress. There is limited seating outside.
