It was a bit of a wait but it was worth it. The crab cakes were tasty, the clam chowder creamy, the calamari tasty and the fish & chips very nice. Will definitely return, and recommend.

Hi there, I looked on your menu and couldn't find anything regarding gluten free options aside from the kids meal. Do you have any gluten free menu options? If so, what are they?
