Slowly and safely venturing out of my own kitchen with Celiac Disease.

Most of the menu is gf. The cashier told me that everything that is placed on the grill or put in he fryer is gf. Excellent burger and sweet potato fries.
840 Montlimar Drive, Mobile, AL 36609
Extensive GF menu. Make sure you tell them you will need a dedicated fondu pot so they can sit you at a table with enough cook tops (if the other people in your party want to dip gluten items). A little over priced, but good.
351A George Street, Mobile, AL 36604
Excellent food and great service. I'm giving it four stars only because there wasn't an official printed gluten free menu, but the server had a hand written list from the chef with multiple gluten free entrees and salads to choose from. I had hummus with veggies as an appetizer, delicious shrimp and grits, a house salad, and creme brûlée.
3654 Airport Boulevard, Mobile, AL 36608
Good fresh seafood. My waiter was not aware that they had a gluten free menu, but the manager brought me one. I had local ruby red shrimp (steamed) and asparagus. I had no gluten reaction and the shrimp were quite good. This isn't your typical "everything fried" seafood shack, so there seemed to be a decent selection with less risk of cross contamination.
Via Dè Ginori, 6, Florence, Italy
They are endorsed by the Italian Celiac Association. I ordered a pizza and greek salad. Both were very good. The waiter assured me that there was no cross contamination for the pizzas. The chef uses separate utensils, puts down a sheet of paper in the oven to cook the gf pizzas on, and doesn't cook any regular pizzas at the same time.
Via del Giglio, 28, Florence, Italy
This is probably the most popular gluten free restaurant in Florence. I had a table by the door and 75 percent of the customers asked for the gluten free menu. The platter of Italian meats was good as an appetizer and the pesto pasta was good. The menu was a little over priced and the service was just ok because they were very busy. My husband liked his regular pizza.
Via del Campanile, 2, Florence, Italy
Grom seems to work hard to control cross contamination. Just mention that you need your gelato "senza glutine" and they will scoop it from a reserved pan in a separate freezer. The pistachio and chocolate flavors were good.
Via Guelfa, 70, 50129 Florence, Italy
iToscano has delicious gluten free options. I had the bruschetta to start and pasta with a bacon, olive oil, basil and garlic sauce. They also make their own gf bread made in house. All of the ingredients were fresh and they seem to take a lot of pride in their dishes.
Křemencova 7, 110 00 Praha 1, Czech Republic
Great traditional Czech dishes. Gluten free goulash, dumplings, bread, beer. Very tasty. Gluten free meals come out of the kitchen labeled.
Betlémské náměstí 11/259, Prague, Czech Republic 110 00
Entire menu is gluten free. Gluten free beer. Great italian.
Platnéřská 111/19, Prague, Czech Republic 110 00
Delicious prime American beef. All steaks and most sides are gf. I had the bone-in ribeye, loaded baked potato and sautéed asparagus. The staff is very attentive and well trained. $$$
Novotného lávka 199/9, Old Town, Prague-Praha, Czech Republic 110 00
Although this restaurant did not have a gf menu, the staff (particularly the manager) was highly trained and the menu had many gf options. I could choose from all but two of the entrees. I had pan seared sea bass with mashed potatoes, a melon salad, and banana creme brûlée for dessert. Everything I tried was very good. The menu is a little pricey and the portions are on the small side as this is a semi-upscale restaurant. The setting is perfect overlooking the Charles Bridge, and the service was fantastic. I highly recommend for a nice dinner out in Prague.
210 East Glenn Avenue, Auburn, AL 36830
Yes, Acre has "gluten free" items noted on their menu, but my experience was not GF. Many of the entrees list fried items that are not fried in a dedicated fryer, so NOT gluten free. When I asked to substitute sliced tomatoes for the fried okra, my tomatoes came out with five or six croutons hidden underneath. Not great to be halfway through a dish only to discover you're being glutened. After reporting this to my waitress, the manager did come over and offer me a free dessert, which was nice, but I had already lost confidence and didn't want to eat anything else. My ribeye was fair. Overall, Acre needs to better educate staff.
340 Marina Dr, Port St Joe, FL 32456
I had the steamed shrimp (cooked in Old Bay and butter) and the potato salad without a reaction. I just carefully explained my needs to the waitress. There is no gf menu and it's a typical "everything fried" seafood restaurant, but there aren't many options in PSJ.
675 Johnnie Dodds Boulevard, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464
Tasty, but I got glutened. Also, my waitress told me that the fries are NOT cooked in a dedicated fryer, contrary to other posts.
9 Du Rhu Dr, Mobile, AL 36608
I enjoyed dinner at Mirko. I started with the mussels in white wine, had the house salad and then gluten free pasta with spicy pancetta tomato sauce. Everything tasted great. I double checked with the waitress that the gf pasta is cooked in a separate pot of fresh water. I gave four stars because my gf pasta was kind of broken up into short pieces, and the portion was much smaller than all the other entrees I saw. Overall good.
3871 Airport Blvd, Mobile, AL 36608
Good fresh Mexican. Their website says everything is gf, except for the flour tortillas. I had a chicken salad loaded with rice, beans, guac, cheese and salsa. Very good.
2808 Georgia 54, Peachtree City, GA 30269
Almost everything on menu is gf. They offer gf hamburger and hotdog bugs and the fries are gf. Great tasting burgers and nice atmosphere.
1544 Piedmont Rd,, Suite 301, Atlanta, GA 30324
Excellent GF menu. I had rotisserie chicken, duck fat fries and fresh fruit. Meal came with a GF cornbread muffin. Everything was great and I didn't have a gluten response. My dad, who doesn't have gluten issues had the gluten free chicken tenders and said they were great.
2370 Hillcrest Road, Mobile, AL 36695
Lots of Gf options. The Goodbye Gluten wraps on the Gf aisle are delicious. They make great burritos. I also love the Against the Grain frozen pesto pizzas.
104 S 8th St, Opelika, AL 36801
Jimmy's does not have a gluten free menu, but the staff seemed knowledgable. The chef will modify most dishes on the menu to make them GF, if they aren't already. I ordered a filet of beef and it came with a stuffed potato (looked like one of those frozen potato boats from the 70's) and tasty sautéed summer squash. ($30) The steak was tender and perfectly cooked. My companions had rice based dishes and the rice appeared mushy (although they liked them). Overall, the food was good. The atmosphere was pleasant, but not fancy. The wine list was good.
4515 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338
Burger was served in an average (not great) gf bun. The fries are not gluten free. They have cider and omission beer.
1739 Maybank Hwy., Charleston, SC 29412
The staff was relatively unaware of gluten. They did not have a gf menu and there is major cross contamination issues. It might be fine for gluten sensitivity, but I wouldn't go back with celiac.
4478 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338
Excellent wine bar with extensive GF dinner/appetizer menu. The owner is a celiac and the regular menu has all of the items that are gluten free clearly marked. I spoke with the owner and she said that the kitchen staff is well educated about cross contamination and most of the menu can be made gf. They also have gluten free desserts. Highly recommended.
2370 Hillcrest Road, Mobile, AL 36695
Great tasting chicken salad. I tried the trio platter - with the classic, Dixie and nut salads. All were great, but the Dixie was my favorite. The manager said almost all of the chicken salads are gf. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because it was a little pricey (almost 10 bucks for 3 scoops and a pickle) and the regular girl at the counter didn't seem very knowledgeable and needed the manager's advice. Hopefully that will improve.
609 Dauphin Street, Mobile, AL 36602
Although this restaurant did not have a gf menu. My server told me that most of their menu items were, or could be made gf. The Bull is moderately priced ($20 to $30 for dinner.). I had a ribeye with purple mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach (I left off the blue cheese topping). My waiter told me he would go verify all of my selections with the chef and make sure there weren't any hidden marinades. My steak was delicious and I didn't get a gluten reaction.
9 Du Rhu Dr, Mobile, AL 36608
They keep a gf menu at the register and seem pretty knowledgable. I ordered the fruit and chicken salad plate ($8.00). It was a big serving and I didn't have a gluten reaction.
5660 Old Shell Road, Mobile, AL, 36608
Mellow is great for diners with gluten intolerance, but maybe not for celiacs. I wouldn't order a salad because I've watched the cook make a large sandwich and reach into all of the salad ingredients without changing his gloves. After doing that multiple times a day, I'm sure the ingredients are quite contaminated. Too bad.
270 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
Gf heaven. My party shared the portobello risotto and a thin crust gf pizza and had gf red velvet cupcakes for dessert. Everything was awesome.
350 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10016
Large gf menu.
630 9th Ave, New York, NY 10036
They have gf buns, but no gf menu. They also say they will use a separate fryer for gf fries. There is nothing that indicates that the fries were cooked separately when your plate comes out, so you have to have faith in the kitchen. It made me a little nervous.
630 9th Ave, New York, NY 10036
Extensive gf menu including dessert. Knowledgable staff.
