Our party of 8 got seated quickly and were served even faster. The fish was terrific and the drinks were as well. We lingered long enough to watch the sunset over the water and it was spectacular.

This has great views out over the bay. We had lunch, so the food was a typical bar menu. I can't comment on the dinner menu.

I doubt they have a gluten free menu per se but they offer lots of seafood options so if you are on a gluten free diet you should be able to find something yummy to eat.
