The Arm’s Reach is a warm and inviting environment with some great views of Deep Cove. Food is consistently good, although the menu is a bit limited. We try and go there once a month or so.

Have been there with someone who is gluten sensitive, and she things on the menu that satisfied her, however you should check with the restaurant directly to make sure this is still the case. Bon Appetit!!
