    AWESOME restaurant for gluten sensitive people! Bread and a whole menu! Fried fish was great! It had been years since I had gotten to eat fried calamari--this was just as good as I remember!

    The wait says was very friendly. The food was disappointing. The steak tasted metallic and and bitter, the shrimp was way overcooked and the scallops and mashed potatoes has no flavor. Yummy fries.
