We love seafood! The grouper piccata was light and delicious. The seafood sauté was all broiled and very good too. You get fresh bread as a starter. Very polite staff! Next time we will come back for the crab! Heard it was the bomb!

There a few ways I get coupons. The best is from the Saver magazine that comes out once a month. We get $14 off our second meal. Also, they have a point system and give you a nice $15 off when you reach the quota. Finally... More

I don't know if they have gluten free items but they deal mostly with seafood which should be OK. I would give them a phone call and check
