Awesome exclusively gf restaurant with delicious food. The appetizers are great including the crab cakes and cheese curds. I also had Jambalaya for my entrée and the peach pie for dessert was to die for. Excellent wine list!

So good. Seriously. A few things on the menu were EXCEPTIONAL: cheese curds and flat bread. Underwhelmed by the chicken teriyaki. They can’t all be winners but just being able to get anything on the menu and being able to share with other people is such a novelty. I drove more than an hour to get here and it was worthwhile. If you’re anywhere nearby… consider making this very special trip.

Pro tip: I got fries and cheese curds to go and reheated them the next day in the toaster oven. The cheese curds were perfect again! The fries were not. Get stuff to go; you won’t be sorry!

Tips


Celiac

They are steal! No COVID price gouging. It’s the exact opposite. Fantastic super safe curbside pick up. Weekly, Daily, & even curbside specials. The food is delicious. The owner, manager, & staff are incredibly knowledgeable. This is a celiac dream. I told my boss, who gives rewards w/ food even though we ask for spirit wear clothing for our school, that I want my retirement party here or I’m not coming.

This is our go to place as a family with 2 celiacs. We always feel safe here and the food is excellent. Since CoVID we have been getting pick-up and the food quality has remained excellent - and is well “plated” in the take out boxes.

Total menu is gluten free. If you are cemiac, you can eat absolutely everything! Appetizers are over-the-top. Cheese curds just fabulous. We had 2 orders to start and took 2 home. Also took home extra deserts. Love the entire menu.

Fantastic restaurant. It’s our new favorite. 1776 offers fresh, farm to table dining with locally sourced ingredients. Truly a great food and dining experience. All the food on the menu is gluten free and celiac safe. This place is a great find for anyone suffering from celiac disease.

Completely gluten free restaurant! Owned by a celiac.

Huge menu selection and delicious food. Honestly this is some the best food I’ve had in a long time - including at restaurants that serve gluten. If I didn’t move so far away I’d be here once a week easily. And it Made my celiac so happy to have good food she didn’t need to worry about.

Service is impeccable and lovely decor

I cannot possibly overstate how incredible this place is! It is a completely gluten free facility and the food is SO INCREDIBLE. One of the best meals I've had in a long time and I'm not actually gluten free, my boyfriend is. We both had such an amazing experience dining here. The food is so so so delicious and thoughtfully crafted and plated and everything is locally sourced. Our server told us they even source from local hydroponic farms so they can still have local produce in the winter! She was so patient and friendly and knowledgeable and so was the rest of the staff. The drinks were fantastic too. We're so excited that we found out about this place and will definitely be back many times. This place is such a gem!

This place is a celiac gem!! The owner has celiac and multiple food allergies and has trained the staff very well. We go there monthly with our celiac daughter and have never had a problem. One of the only places we trust completely. Farm to table, fresh food and a rotating menu with what is in season. Definitely a must!!

The best for celiac safe food!!! The owner has celiac disease so she totally gets it and makes sure her staff takes the proper precautions. The majority of the menu is already gluten free though, and I believe they are working toward making the entire menu gluten free. Eat (and drink) here with confidence! Just always advocate for yourself and tell your server of your celiac disease. They instantly know what to do from there!! Love this place!!!!! :)

I have been to 1776 twice now and I call it my new happy place. About 95% of the items are either already gluten free or can be readily made gluten free. This includes their many desserts which is typically unheard of. I highly recommend making a reservation because they do fill up, but they will accommodate you if they can. Their coconut shrimp in particular is amazing. However I have had yet to have anything I haven't liked.
