We visited in the middle of the afternoon and it was very quiet and pleasant. It was shortly after hurricane Irma. The staff is very friendly and attentive! Food and drinks were great! Had the fried shrimp which was very lightly breaded and delicious.

I don't recall any specifics on the menu about being gluten free, but they were very accommodating in general and there were plenty of gluten free options from my recollection.
