We have to visit every year so my wife can order the crab cakes. My son says they have the best hush puppies. I like the shrimp,clams and other seafood. Can't beat the value.

We have a young man who needs gluten (wheat) free. Are your fries coated? We think he will be safe with the burger without the bun. Is there anything else you recommend? We are regular customers and want to bring family to one of our favorite places. Thanks for any help.
