8th & Union has closed. 1/18/19- It’s been a while since I’ve posted, still a fantastic place. Large gluten free menu. Everything fried is gluten free which means AMAZING FRIES!!! We went last night for the first time. Amazing menu. Everyone gets the same one. I didn't feel like I stood out for once. Almost everything is gluten free. There were tons of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and entrees. All the desserts were GF too!!! I told the waitress I had celiac, and she didn't blink an eye. She just said that she will make sure the kitchen knows so they are aware. I went to order a cordial at the end of the night and she even made sure she checked with the bar to make sure that it was GF. GREAT MEAL!!! I had the Brussel sprouts, scallop dinner and the chocolate custard.
Safe but the worst. We had the worst food ever- fried chicken sandwich was so dry I would have preferred it had gluten. Bun was not something you can separate with your teeth alone. Drinks were great! I hope this was just a bad night- the waiter was so embarrassed by the kitchen that he stopped coming by the table. I loved the opportunity to order so many gluten-free items, but I wouldn’t go back even though it was celiac-friendly. Did I mention we waited an hour for our food?
We’ve been here three or four times now and have had no issues eating gf. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Most of the dishes can be prepared gf and we usually order everything gf so we can share. We’ve tried different items every time we visit and have enjoyed everything! That’s the best thing about this place...the food is rock star and it’s not just burgers and pizza! Guacamole is amazing! Fried chicken anything = delicious! Pad Thai is fantastic! Burgers are also delicious. This is a fantastic find so go and try it out! Enjoy!!
Fantastic! If you’re debating on where to go, THIS is the place! Most of not all dishes can be made GF. They have a dedicated fryer for celiac customers which mean FRENCH FRIES! The rolls used for the burgers were soft and not dry/crumbly. Oh and ALL the desserts are GF. They even brought out the GF food first as to not mix the orders up. My 9 year old was very happy as were we. I wish we had this restaurant in our hometown back in NY.
My husband took me to this restaurant in our way home and it was amazing. The owner has celiac so the whole menu is gluten free...it was so good. I had the cauliflower burger with friend rice. The dessert was also delicious! I would definitely go back!
This place is great in every aspect. I had a burger on a gluten free bun and its one of the best burgers I've ever had. The fries looked to be fresh cut fries. I had their chocolate custard for desert and it was excellent. My waitress was wonderful. Definitely gluten free friendly.
OMG! This place is awesome! The entire menu is essentially gluten free. I came for brunch and they had crepes, chicken and waffles, and cornbread. The server told us that they won best brunch in Delaware and were featured on the Food Network. If you have celiac, this place is a must stop on any trip in the Wilmington area!
Awesome variety of tasty food, whether you are celiac or not. Our server told us that the boss is celiac, so the entire place was very conscious of the concern. At least 90% of the menu (including desserts and fried dishes) was gluten free as-is. Excellent food, atmosphere, and service!
Amazing. The food was so yummy. Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable. Immediately offered to tell the chef I had celiac and said there would be no cross contamination. My husband (who is not GF) also thoroughly enjoyed his meal. It's great to feel safe- but to feel safe and to be so satisfied....what a treat!
Many gluten free options. Enjoyed chicken satay app and buttermilk chicken sandwich with french fries made in dedicated fryer. I did not feel any symptoms except full from all the delicious food! My gluten eating son enjoyed the Kennett Burger. Nice casual atmosphere. Would recommend for any one with Celiac.
The best burger that I've had in years! (And 1/2 price on Mondays!) Fries are from a dedicated fryer. There is such a variety of choices for gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian diets. Check out their website and look at their menu. Can't wait to go back!
The GF Pad Thai was amazing! The popcorn before the meal was a nice option instead of bread. I visited this restaurant while traveling on business. I would highly recommend it. I was tempted to return a second night instead of trying another GF option in the area! Lots of GF choices.
Delicious dinner with the family - many gluten free selections. Crab cakes were wonderful. Also great fried rice, calamari, and buffalo cauliflower. They even gave us complimentary seasoned popcorn when we sat down at table (instead of the usual bread basket that may daughter I cannot eat). All gluten free and all scrumptious. We will definitely visit again. What a plus that they have a celiac chef who prepares such lovely food. Thank you!!!!
Almost everything is made with rice flour and they are very accommodating and can substitute GF bread for everything else. Food was really good and the atmosphere is nice too. Even the children's menu could all be made gf. My daughter had a great gf grilled cheese.
Absolutely wonderful new place to eat. Almost the entire menu can be made gluten free. Everything on the menu that can be made gluten free is labelled clearly. Food is FANTASTIC!! American gastropub food with great Asian dishes such as pho and pad Thai. Every dish I've had was wonderful and fresh. They also feature gluten free desserts that are not to miss. Definitely check this place out!
