Last night my and family and I went to Double cut and I specifically told our waitress that I have celiac disease! She assured me that the chief would cook everything separately from the other foods that aren’t gluten free!!! Weelllllllllllll, I got sick! So sick that my feet swelled up, I looked 6mos pregnant, my hands swelled up and I had a massive migraine! This was not celiac disease friendly AT ALL! What I ordered was a salad, mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts!!! Having celiac disease is not a choice!!!!
My company hosts a weekend at Kalahari once a year. We get a catered supper, eat at the buffet, and get ice cream at the sweets shop. I have Celiac, I get sick within 15 min. of eating something that contains or has come into contact with gluten. In multiple visits, I have NEVER gotten sick. When I tell the staff I have Celiac and all them to clean the scoops, utensils, etc., no one looks confused or like they think I'm nuts. They change gloves, get a clean scoop, etc. Always a great experience. For that alone, we keep returning.
The ice cream parlor in the hotel used the same spoon for the gluten free ice cream which was beyond contanimated. My son got extremely sick and we lost 2 days of vacation.
I went to "Safari Snacks" near the water park and got the gluten free pepperoni pizza. They were very good about cross contamination. It was delicious!
Go to double cut.... the restaurant attached. It is more but worth not getting sick.
Staff was very educated on gluten and cross contamination ...... and gluten free bread! Lots of selections on the gfree menu.
we went to the Sandusky Ohio Kalahari and had a great time. I was told ahead of time to ask at any of the restraunts to ask for gf menu, we only went to the more fast food place by water park entrance and got a great burger on a gf bun, second time a grilled chicken sandwich. both with fries. it was all cooked separate, seemed like in a different area, took a little longer but worth it. no reaction and they had Hellman's Mayo packets even! there was atleast 2 people in the restraunts both times that knew what they were doing (register people weren't as sure of things). I'm sure the sit down restraunts upstairs were even better but we stayed by the water the whole time. they also offered gf pizza but I have a dairy allergy.
Amazing experience. Several restaurant choices. I had a GF wrap, sandwich and pizza while I was there. The waitress was SO knowledgable. I'll be back!
Kalahari does have GF buns and seemed knowledgeable. Neither my daughter nor I had any reaction to their food, however the bread was extremely dry and flavorless (tasted like Schar's). We found the food to be very overpriced, as 4 adult lunches, plus two kids meals came out to about $80.
