Great Gluten free choices

Good food. Lots of options for gluten free pasta. Cute place and good service. We got to sit outside and it was nice! Food was very different but a nice change.

The food and drink were good, but they might need to augment their staff. It took forever to get the food and forever+1 to get the bill. I'd certainly give an additional star if it weren't for that.

Went with a large group and, where some other restaurants have failed with such a large group, we found the service to be fantastic! They really went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was exceptional! Food was wonderful.. our group opted for many different choices but I went with Shrimp & Grits- yummy! Salad was an add-on... More

Chose this seafood restaurant over others in the area since Dad had always liked it. Forgot that he basically only eats fried seafood, so be aware your other choices can be limited. My mother and grandson both had the fried seafood trio - fried clam strips, fried shrimp and fried haddock. And french fries. I was not that hungry so... More

We went with group of friends after day at the beach. It was pretty close to closing time but waitress welcomed us with a smile and food was delicious. That's more than I can say for most restaurants near closing time waiting on a full table

My husband and I dined here on Mother's Day. I'm glad I called one hour before arriving and made a reservation. The place was packed!!! People were outside waiting. We only had to wait about 10 minutes before we were seated. The calamari (fried) is to die for!!! We wanted lobster but the couple that was seated just before us... More

Found this spot by searching here on TripAdvisor. Good choice. Good was good. Only drawback is there aren't many non-fried, non-pasta choices. But everything we had (frog legs, dozen shrimp, kids pasta & shrimp) was delicious.

We went to Shell for dinner this week and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurants has a tropical fish motif is clean and pleasant. We both had the Shrimp pasta with a salad and a drink. The salad was rather large and served with a slice of warm garlic bread. The Shrimp pasta entrée provided a generous portion of pasta with... More
