Please note that for those with severe allergies we cannot guarantee that our kitchen will be 100% trace free of the item you are allergic to. We can accommodate diets such as vegetarian, vegan, non-seafood, wheat free, and dairy but may not be able to accommodate other special diets where you are on a strict menu plan. You may want to bring some of your own snacks. Feel free to
