I just left Black Bear Diner in a rush because I'm so sick. But, it wasn't the food, but the steak sauce, I took a whiff of it and it smelled like A1, so I just went with it. BIG mistake. So avoid theor sauces. I also didn5 get a good feeling about their general awareness of Celiac Disease. So, I was risking it anyway. I dint think I'm going to be going back, wh8ch sucks because I do like comfort food.

if you have celiac, don't bother. One salad is gluten free and that's it. There are many items on the menu that could be easily made gluten free, but I'm guessing they know they have lots of cross contamination.

There is only one GF item on the menu. I've had their GF salad selection a couple of times, but it doesn't ring any bells for me. For one, it is way too sweet for this diabetic with celiac. This time I tried the bacon cheeseburger salad with vinegar & oil. The servers are not very well versed on GF.

It was great! They have no gluten free menu, but there are gluten free choices. My waiter was very attentive and told the kitchen I had gluten allergy. They swapped gluten free toast for the biscuit that came with the omelette and potatoes. They took measures to avoid cross-contact (switch gloves, clean up, separation, etc.) I am a happy Celiac!

They have gluten-free bread that can be used for toast or as a bun. It’s pretty good bread - honestly it’s probably as good as the gluten-y toast. I have zero faith in their procedures, though.

Probably safe for those looking to minimize gluten, but not a good place for those with celiac or wheat allergies

Salmon was excellent. The waiter double-checked ingredients to make sure I could eat safely.

I came to black bear diner from out of town. They have bob red mills oats and as long as you tell them about cross contamination they are good about pulling out a separate pan. The fryers are shared and the grill is as well celiac safe I give a 5/10 due to my waitress knowing about celiac but gluten intolerant you would be safe here.
