What can I say about Obstinate Daughter that hasn't been said? My girlfriend was already a big fan and she took me for brunch one Sunday. The place is so lovely: it's like a high-end nautical treehouse! Our server Kelly was very friendly. Then the...More

Was wondering how this small restaurant near the beach got so much hype - now I know. Wow! One of the best lunches we’ve ever had. The chicken and farro plate was amazing! Husband had the orrechetti with pistachio/mint pesto - outstanding! Go there!

My granddaughter & I had dinner here. I had the best beet salad & oysters. She had the Dirty Rice & really liked it. The restaurant is small & cozy. It's not on the beach, but it's popular so make reservations.

They will make most things in the menu GF. There are a couple exceptions, some of which are obvious from looking at the menu. Call to be sure about a specific dish, but they’re very gluten sensitive here!
