Yes, indeed. It is out of the way, but well worth the trip. We hadn't visited for a long time but stopped for lunch and shared the sampler plate. It was plenty for both of us and we brought leftovers home. The BBQ is great...More

I was on a trip when I ate at that restaurant. I have no idea if they have meals to meet these dietary requirements. You could review their online menu to see if they have meals that might work. Good luck and happy travels.
