    GF Lobster mac & cheese was divine!!! Such a rare treat. Savored every bite. Husband had lobster roll and thoroughly enjoyed it. Super fresh seafood, great atmosphere.

    Excellent food with great atmosphere for a small town feel. Yes they were very careful with the Gluten free food service. It was super busy they still took care in the service and care of the gluten free request.. .

    This place is amazingly good and super GF friendly!!! Everything on the menu can be made GF! It's so yummy and delicious! We've gone here everyday to eat since coming to Bar Harbor and will probably continue until we leave...it's that good! I am so thankful to have found this place!

    Best place in Bar Harbor IMHO, for a celiac to feel comfortable and have a delicious meal. Baked fries are great, as was my fish sandwich. And the Downeast cider on tap was sooo good!

    Most GF friendly restaurant we've been to! The hostess shared she has celiac and our waitress volunteered she is GF by choice--made us confident. Loved their Reuben, fish sandwich, Mac and cheese and lobster roll. The pub fries are baked and delicious!

    Most menu items can be made gluten free and are indicated with GF. most, but not all, wait staff are attuned to multiple allergies and helpful. We've eaten here several times and have been very pleased.

    Phenomenal to find so many savory gf options on a menu. Don't miss the build your own Mac and cheese. We added bacon and lobster. Lots of appetizers and sandwiches, too. Very knowledgeable staff that takes extra precautions for celiacs. Great service overall. Will be back!!

    My wife and I always go to Side Street Cafe because their staff is very concerned about Gluten allergies, they don't have any problem helping us with all the questions that we make about their way to cook, they have an amazing control to avoid cross contamination, most of their menu is GF and they will tell you if they are not sure about how safe any dish or side would be for your level of allergy. GREAT RESTAURANT AND BAR

    GF menu has plenty of choices I took the Nomad chicken burger. The bun was great. The whole burger was great. Friendly staff. 2$ extra for the GF bun though :(

    friendly staff, answered questions knowledgeable and asked kitchen where needed .. had lobster stew which was incredible.. also had crab mealy, which was super bland, don't recommend. plus we had a b.l.a.t., which was great .. they use udi's bread for gf and bake their fries ... I am super gluten sensitive and did not get sick ... I recommend the side street cafe, just skip the bland crab melt .. if you are in bar harbor and wand great fresh seafood to cook yourself chexh out Parsons too just outside of town .. super cheap great fresh seafood

    So many gf options! Very accomodating staff. They use udi's bread and their pub fries are baked so they are gf friendly. Lobster stew was amazing as was the BLAT. Wouldn't recommend the crab melt. Very bland. Definitely would go back next time I am in bar harbor.

    Wonderful waiter that was more than willing to help. I ordered the hamburger with the GF bun. As is typical, the bun was a little dry, but overall tasty. Loved the GF Pub Fries. Good place!
