Have been many times with my celiac family - no issues!

They have a huge GF menu, safe handling protocols, and even separate colored dishes to cue staff and diners that the food is gf. We love it here

I’ve eaten here multiple times and every time I do I get very sick. Even though they offer gluten free items and I tell them I have celiac, the food somehow gets contaminated and I end up sick every time. Not only that but the food there isn’t even that good.

Egg Harbor is the only place we feel completely safe eating! They are extremely good about keeping their GF food separate from the rest of the kitchen

One of our go-to places for good food and a good selection of gluten-free options. Very knowledgeable and even accommodating when possible. The GF Door County chicken salad is delicious as are their GF pancakes.

Excellent service and food. We took our new sailor here for Veteran's Day breakfast. They were very kind and several staff members thanked him for his service. Highly recommend.

Plus, the gluten-free selection is pretty impressive. My grits were amazing!

Full gluten free menu with so many options. Great with dairy free too. I had the avocado toast and a chai latte and it was delicious. Staff is trained well.
