    They offer a GF bun for their burgers, which is definitely more than most places are doing. The GF menu was pretty much limited to that when I went though, maybe it has improved at this point. I paid a lot more than I was expecting for a burger that wasn't that impressive, and there really weren't options for sides. I was a little disappointed after stopping in because of the huge "Gluten Free Menu" sign outside. The manager also made a huge deal about their policy to not cross contaminate, said that only he could handle GF, put on rubber gloves and then put a GF branded bun on the burger and put it in a bag. I know he meant well, but it was sort of a scene. I will say that I'm impressed they're trying, and I know a lot of gluten tolerant people who really like their food, but unfortunately it isn't enough to make me go back.

    No specific gluten free menu, and they did start by giving me a bucket of bread with oil while I waited. Luckily I had a date that could enjoy it. We shared the mussels and a steak salad. Both were delicious! I would say that if you're really sensitive there's probably a risk of contamination, but I'll definitely go back! The staff was friendly, the service was a little slow though, so if you're in a hurry or really hungry, maybe go somewhere with a dedicated menu that's a little quicker. But if you have time to sit, relax and enjoy a meal, I would reccomend it.

    Big portions and good prices. I had the Kung Pao Chicken, it was great! Their selection of gluten free is pretty good, though most of it includes items that don't contain gluten in general. But, the fact that they are aware of GF is a big plus! I'll definitely eat there again! The staff was friendly, the service was quick, and the ginger mojito was delicious!

  • 3 Buoys Seafood Shanty & Grille

    I had a HUGE seafood omelete with home fries and GF toast (I think the bread was Udi's, just an FYI). The waitress was nice and helpful. They have a dedicated GF fryer, but I was in the mood for breakfast, the menu did say they could make any fried food gluten free. My date had some of the best fries I've ever tried, which were also GF. Great prices, lots of choices, and great staff. Definitely a great choice for the gluten free and gluten friendly to have a delicious, well priced, casual meal together!

    Love the option for GF crust and dairy free "cheese". The staff is great, the ambiance is relaxed, and Ive never had any contamination issues. I just find that it isn't my first choice when craving pizza. Definitely a good option, and they have a few locations in the area.

    Always great food and great service! The menu is layed out so you know what you can have immediately. The staff is always great. Sometimes GF takes a little bit longer for them to make, but well worth it!

    The staff is really friendly, and helpful. There are gluten free options, with more being added since my first time there a year ago. They get GF rolls from Bam Bam Bakery, and Vegan options from Bomb Diggity; so they have food for special dietary needs. Worth a visit!

  • El Rayo Taqueria

    The food is good, and reasonably priced. They have the menu set up with items that DO contain gluten marked. I've had both good and not so good reactions to the food, however. Depending on sensitivity, be cautious. I ordered something that was gluten free on the menu, but didn't specify with my server that I needed gluten free, I have also eaten there since with no problem. Overall, the staff is friendly, the drinks are strong and the food is a good, quicker option (depending on how busy they are, seating is limited). They do close *early, at 9:00, so they aren't a late night option.

    Always a great experience with delicious food. Often a wait for a table, but I prefer the bar anyway. Great options for GF pizza, delicious, fresh ingredients, and the specials are always interesting and worth trying. Good selection of GF beer and cider. The staff is always friendly.

  • Pat's Pizza

    4 starsJanuary 11, 2013

    30 Market Street, Portland, ME 04101

    They aren't a dedicated facility, so super sensitive people beware. But they have a gluten free crust, which is an extra $2, and is only available on the personal sized pizza, but it's delicious. They have separate utensils and pans for the GF, and I've never had a reaction. Definitely worth a try, especially if you're looking for a quick lunch to go, or to sit and watch a game.

    One word; Delicious! The easy to read menu with GF, V, etc takes the guess work out of lunch. Every soup I've tried has been great! The staff is really friendly, and the atmosphere in the Public Market House is great for sipping soup and people watching.

    Their GF bread and muffins come from Bam Bam Bakery, so you know they're safe. The Commericial St breakfast sandwich on GF white bread is always great! Also, being able to get a turkey club again is amazing! They use real pieces of turkey (not thinly sliced deli meat) which, let's be honest, is the only way to do it! They have a dedicated GF toaster, and always say it might take a bit longer to get my meal, but I've never had a single issue. The service is quick, friendly, and they keep the coffee coming.
