    Off the Hook has a great gluten free menu. Great seafood options and plenty to choose from that is on the regular menu. Staff very knowledgeable about the menu. And... the food was GREAT! I had clam chowder with GF bread. a Caesar salad, scallops, and lobster mashed potatoes. Pricy, but worth it!

  • The Corner Pub & Grill

    Though they did not have GF beer, (They had Omission, unsafe for celiacs) they had a great GF menu and knowledge. Be careful of under educated staff, however. I was accidentally served a regular bun with my French Dip. The manager profusely apologized and explained how seriously they take GF meal prep. My meal was comped, and I returned the following night.

  • Goldberg's Restaurant

    Knowledgeable staff, stating, "we take the risk of cross contamination seriously." GF bagels and bread. Offered GF pretzels as a side.

  • Cracker Barrel

    2150 Delk Rd, Marietta, GA 30067

    While they have an specialty menu with low carb, and other dining preferences including. "gluten menu" they do not guard against cross contamination. The server was not knowledgeable.

  • Ted's Montana Grill

    3 starsMarch 13, 2015

    2500 Cobb Pl Ln NW #210, Kennesaw, GA 30144

    Good gluten free menu, but the Delmonico steak was loaded with gristle.

  • Westshore Pizza

    They have ONE size GF pizza, 12 inch, and it was not good. Doughy, tasteless crust.

    944 South Route 59, Naperville, IL 60540

    Warning! This is NOT a gluten free restaurant! They do not separate gluten free and other items on the grill. They also have a poor menu selection. This is the only Italian restaurant I've been to recently that had no GF pasta option.

  • Traverso's Restaurant

    5 starsJanuary 08, 2013

    2523 Plainfield Naperville Rd, Naperville, IL 60564

    They have a robust gluten free menu, and the food is good to outstanding. The atmosphere is good, they have a great staff, and attentive owners. After being diagnosed with celiac, I asked why they didn't have GF beer. They asked me for a recommendation - I suggested easy to get "Redbridge." They have had it ever since!

  • Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano

    5 starsJanuary 08, 2013

    2752 Show Pl Dr, Naperville, IL 60564

    I've dined there twice, and I will return. They have a good GF menu for starters, but they also have a well educated staff. It is refreshing not to get a blank stare when I say "gluten free..." The food is excellent, and they even make a "bread" out of GF pizza crust that is delicious! I no longer have to sit patiently, stomach growling, while everyone else at the table is eating.
