This is a non-chain restaurant with a quiet atmosphere, a large menu and the ability to make things not listed on the menu.

They had great food and were able to accommodate a gluten allergy without eliminating flavor. Portions were large and we all were impressed with the selection of seafood. A great way to celebrate a birthday.
