Great personalized experience. I was really in the mood for salad with scallops. The chef came out to help customize the salad I wanted while taking great care with my many allergies. He made a few suggestions and I was very happy with the results. Very tasty. Can’t say enough about the service. Highly recommend.

This is one of my go-to restaurants. Gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and will alert you to gluten free items that are not celiac-safe.

Limited GF options for brunch cocktails. Server said hollandaise for Eggs Benedict was gluten free but didn’t try it. No GF english muffins but did have GF hamburger buns. Lots of options with modifications

I had the kale and beet salad with spinach and thought it was great. I didn't try to order anything that would typically have gluten so I didn't ask any questions, but appreciated that the menu was marked and that made it easier for me to choose. They had a pretty broad selection of GF options so I would come back again.

So many options- will try again!

I had the kale and beet salad with salmon, but there were many options ranging from healthyish to heavier comfort food. Lots of interesting dishes/flavors not usually offered with a gluten free option. Since I didn’t have anything fried I didn’t think to ask about the fryer. Food came out with everyone else’s, not marked or served by someone special or anything.

Our server was amazing. She was so friendly and patient. She knew the answers to a lot of questions and willingly asked if she didn’t know.

Walkable from Aquarium and other attractions.

I've started frequenting this restaurant over the past few months, and have had a great experience each time! Menu is marked with gf items, or some which can be made gf. Lots of egg options for brunch, naturally gluten free, and they have gluten free bread/rolls for sandwiches. Each time I've requested a gluten free meal, the server has asked appropriate follow up questions. Great food too!

I went here on a trip to Boston in November 2021 and I got a lobster roll on GF bread. I let my waitress know that I have celiac disease and I was told that they didn’t have a designated fryer so she suggested that I had roaster veggies instead of the chips or fries. I really enjoyed this place!

The Bostonia Public House does not label or identify gluten free meals, as other restaurants do, through the use of GF sticks or different plates. Unfortunately, my wife was served standard baked beans instead of GF baked beans. She learned too late that the standard baked beans have bread crumbs which are not present on the GF baked beans. I doubt that she was the first or will be the last person accidentally server gluten containing meal at this restaurant.

Sweet potato fries were marked GF. I specifically asked if there was a dedicated separate fryer. After saying they would check, they brought me the meal with the fries saying they were in fact GF. Three hours later I am feeling sick. Definitely got burned here. Be careful.

I have gone to Bostonia a few times and I get sick every time. I always alert my server of my allergy but they must season their meat or cook it in something not celiac safe. I have gotten the steak salad twice and reacted both times. 0/10 for allergy friendly from me.

They have a gluten free indicator on meals. I informed the server I was gluten free. I was eating breakfast, so no food yet today. The meal was delicious, but I don’t think they put my home fried potatoes in their dedicated fryer? I started reacting near the end of the meal. Swollen abdomen, heartburn, itching all day.

Chris was a great bar tender. I had the chicken sandwich on a GF bun and had no issues. Also got the potato gratin and Bostonian baked beans as sides and it was delicious. Hubby enjoyed the crab dip with salt and pepper chips. Chris made sure to confirm with chef for allergies. Great place to go. Nice atmosphere.

They definitely claimed to be gluten free and dairy allergy friendly but my friend got so sick from eating here and there was hair in 2 of our dishes. The waitress said she “googled” if a drink recipe was allergy friendly- it wasn’t once we actually looked up the ingredients after her throat was itchy.
