GLUTEN FREE DINING OPTIONS

This page is a work in progress and will be added to often. We have listed establishments that we have either had good personal experience with, or we have received good feedback from our customers regarding successful GF dining.  Please keep in mind menus are subject to change.  Always communicate with your server your dietary needs, and ask about cross contamination potential.  It is helpful to ask if they use a clean pan and utensils for example to prepare your GF meal?  Most restaurants will have the disclaimer of “ The dish does not contain gluten ingredients but is prepared in a kitchen that handles gluten containing ingredients”.  Please note there are a handful of completely GF restaurants available!  We will leave the final decision up to you!
