The old owner (before 2020 season) focused on gluten free. New owner a lot less so. Gluten free is much less the focus here and not recommended for celiac any longer.

Had high expectations based off all the reviews but was sadly disappointed. I ordered the chicken caesar wrap (gluten free wraps ofc) for takeout. When I got home, I found my wrap to just be a wrap with a only a few pieces of lettuce. They also forgot to give members in my party their side salads and made other mistakes in their orders.

They have gluten free cauliflower crusts for pizzas! I got a chicken cheesesteak on a gluten free wrap and it was amazing. It stayed together great for once.. The online ordering system was easy and the pickup process was quick.

So so so many options. I’ve never had an issue any of the times we’ve eaten here. The pizza is good, the waffles are delicious and the New England style clam chowder is one of the best I’ve ever had. This is also my go to place for crab cakes.

Soo many options. I find something new everytime I come here which, being gluten free, you are usually stuck to a few options for each restaurant. I’m very sensitive and I’ve never been sick here. My favorite is the chowder and chicken sandwhich (so far!)

Had a great experience, staff and owner understands what it means to be celiac. I’ve been getting cross contaminated almost everywhere lately, and I had a great meal there the other day. Can’t wait to go back and try more of their gluten-free options. Would recommend, it’s only 8 miles from my house, and I’m so glad I discovered their gluten-free option on the menu

The best GF experience on LBI. Fantastic, knowledgeable, accommodating service. Exceptional variety of GF items. I thought my daughter was going to cry when she tasted her GF steak fries and burger, which was grilled to perfection. This more than made up for some disappointing GF experiences here.

Excellent gluten free option. They have an incredible amount of gluten free choices and all staff are very aware of their options. They are also well trained about risks of cross contamination. We ate breakfast there first and my 10 year old was so excited about all of the gluten free breakfast options. My 10 year old daughter got GF french toast and my 2 year old daughter got GF pancakes. We even made a special request for sprinkles on my 2 year old's pancakes and they were more than happy to oblige. My wife got an egg, homefries, and bacon with GF toast, which was very similar to sourdough and one of the most amazing GF breads I've ever had. My mother in law also ate gluten free and got the egg, crab and cheese on a bagel. We also got lunch takeout from there. I got a cheeseteak on their GF hoagie roll. My 10 year old and M-I-L got GF crabcakes. My wife got a GF crabcake sandwich on their GF Kaiser roll. All of the food was hot and delicous. This is one of our favorite GF vacation experiences ever.

I've visited this restaurant twice. The food is delicious! The first time I went, I was so impressed with the service and how knowledgeable the server was in helping me pick out menu items that were both gluten free and dairy free. The second time I went, neither the server nor the manager knew what was safe and what wasn't. They even advised me to stay away from the cole slaw because they said they weren't sure if the mayonnaise was dairy free (I've never heard of mayonnaise containing milk, so my only guess is that they mistakenly thought that eggs were dairy). It made me feel very uncomfortable about their ability to help me find safe foods on the menu.

Great service! A bit pricy but thats something we expect! I got the egg American sub and oh mannnn was I excited to chow down!!! When I got home I was very very very very surprised HOW BIG THE SUB WAS. If you've been gf as long as I have (12years now) you know the typical bread size is BABY bread compared to normal bread. This sub was actually a sub!!!!!! Must try for a gf person.... they aren't a 100% dedicated facility so always tell them how sensitive you are... I am extremely sensitive so I always explain the best way to avoid cross contamination. They were very knowledgeable which gave me extra confidence! A++++++++

My waitress was very knowledgeable and very helpful with telling me what was gluten-free. I haven't had a good chowder let alone a gluten-free chowder in years! The New England clam chowder was very good as well as the gluten-free crabcake. It was very nice to have such a big selection and and someone so attentive to my needs.

The waitress got very defensive when I asked where the GF pancakes were prepared. If they advertise that they have many GF options, they should be willing to answer questions about cross-contamination. I shouldn't have worried though, they were obviously microwaved. The edges were overcooked and inedible. My son very much enjoyed his non-GF meal.

I have celiac and dairy intolerance. I ordered one crab cake and the portabella tower without cheese. Both were really good, but cost me almost $40 . A bit pricey for my budget. Waitress was very friendly and attentive , but didnt seem to know a lot about what exactly was gf. Just pointed me to the paragraph on the menu.

the greenhouse Cafe has a marvelous staff who are very informed about celiac disease and gluten intolerance. The staff including the chefs check all the ingredients will provide any information to answer all of your questions diligently. It's very very rare to find service oriented to understand in this sort of condition. I can't say anything except marvelous things about the greenhouse. the staff is great the food is delicious and they go out of their way and accommodating your allergies this is something that is quality and I wish other places would follow suit. Thank you so much for the wonderful afternoon. they accommodated my service dog Romeo and immediately serve him some water kudos to everybody here exclamation point
