a quiet restaurant with great views--may seem a bit pricey with all ala carte--but side dishes were tasty and shareable. The bread was fresh and hot. Glad they carried venison from broken arrow ranch-probably one of the best game vendors in the state.

There are some special selections that are gluten free, I would call Republic of Texas for wheat free, and specifically request. The restaurant is excellent and has accommodated several special requests from me.

I don't know if you can get it to go, but if you can you should really spend some time here. The view of the bay is beautiful and the staff was amazing.

That’s a great question! I have only lived in the area for a year and we have not gone during the holidays so I don’t know. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. 😕
