    If you have celiac and are anywhere near here you must go! One of the owners has celiac and I have never felt safer eating out! Their GF waffles and muffins are amazing! If you werenโ€™t told, you would never know they are gluten free. The owners truly care about you having a great experience. It is worth the drive. They are a seasonal business that is open for breakfast and lunch during the summer.

    Lemma's is a wonderful restaurant. I am amazed at how much food Joe can make gluten free. Joe and his staff bend over backwards to make sure all of your needs are met. Words do not give his food enough justice with how amazing it is. I am going to miss Joe's amazing cooking this winter. I am already looking forward to next summer! Thank you for creating amazing gf food! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    A family run restaurant where multiple family members have celiac disease. The food is great! I am very sensitive to crosscontamination and I had absolutely no problems. I ate there 4 times while I was in Wildwood. They are only open for breakfast and lunch.

    My family and I had a great experience at this establishment! After reading many positive reviews, we took my 5 year old Celiac son for breakfast. I told the owner that my son has Celiac Disease. Even though the restaurant was busy, she came over to our table to greet my son. She kneeled down to talk to him, explained that she and her daughter also have CD so she understands. She then explained to him and I his menu choices! ( Basically everything can be GF) She also explained the care the staff would take while cooking his food. She personally brought out his delicious GF waffle as well as a separate syrup labeled GF. She even came over mid meal to check on him. On the way out, I told her how much her compassion meant to me! We hugged as we both understand what it means to be a GF parent. My only regret is that we visited on the last day of our vacation! Can not wait to go back next year!

    This was our first time at Lemma's but boy were we impressed! Almost everything on the menu can be made gf! Hubby enjoyed a delicious Belgian waffle - he hasn't been able to since he was diagnosed almost 10 years ago! He was thrilled! Staff seem very knowledgeable and were kind. Cash only, and only open from 7-4. Highly recommended! We will be returning!

    They seem very knowledgeable. Have a separate fryer... Everything on the menu can be made gf. They serve breakfast and lunch only, lunch until 4. Hopefully they will start dinner at some point. Also cash only no credit cards. Worth every penny!!!! Easy going, kid friendly, and delicious gf meals. Definitely go check it out.

    Everything on the menu can be made gluten free and the food was absolutely delicious! The owner has celiac, so you know it's prepared correctly for those with Gluten allergies. The owner was also extremely gracious. This should be a definite stop for anyone. It is going to be a favorite of ours every time we come down to Wildwood!!! Thanks for a great experience!

    This is one of the few restaurants that I have felt completely confident that I would be safe eating gluten free items. The waitress explained they have one designated cook (usually the owner) who only prepares the gluten free food, and the entire menu could be adapted to be gluten free!! Her first question when I asked about GF menu was "do you have celiac?", which is something I appreciate so the cook knows I cannot tolerate even a little contamination. My daughter and I shared a Belgian waffle (which I normally can only make myself at home) and an omelette served with hash browns and GF toast. My husband got the regular Belgian waffle, my others kids got pancakes and an egg and bacon sandwich. The portions were huge. It was truly the best breakfast my whole family has had in a restaurant. The owner sent over complimentary GF blueberry muffins he had just made from scratch for myself (only I have celiac) and the rest of my family to try. My kids and I thought they were delicious. He came over to talk to us and make sure we were all happy with our meals, and was definitely committed to helping the GF community find excellent quality food. He shared that his wife has celiac and he understood what a struggle it was for her to find safe foods when going to restaurants. The restaurant was clean, the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. It is a very casual and family friendly place with seating indoors and outside located right off of the beach. Just please remember all of the food is made to order, so there was a little longer wait than some places - but it was truly worth the wait. We have already planned that we would travel to Lemma's from other shore points even if we weren't in WW crest. Thank you for wonderful food, a great experience, and especially the piece of mind that I wouldn't start my day by getting glutened!!!

    Five stars is not enough!!! This place is great. No blank stares when you ask about gluten free options. Owner has celiac so the staff is gf educated as well. Best gf pancakes since I was diagnosed. Will be going back for lunch. My non-gf family were equally pleased with the food.

    This place was super celiac friendly. The service was great, they can make anything on their menu gluten free because the owners wife is also celiac. The owner himself brought out my meal. Definitely would go back.

    This place far exceeded my expectations! After reading wonderful reviews, we decided to check it out. To begin, the location is perfect! We decided to eat outside so our kids could check out the beach. It was a big hit! In addition, I inquired about the gf menu and was told by our wonderful waitress that they would accommodate anything on the menu to my gf needs. This was one of the first times I felt "normal" and could try anything I wanted. I ordered a breakfast sandwich and home fries; it was phenomenal! We were able to chat with the owner, and he was super nice and extremely knowledgeable. Please check this hidden gem out!!

    Awesome staff! The owner is so kind and personally comes and talks to you. I originally was going to order the gf chicken tenders but then I switched to wrap! Best gf wrap I've ever had! The owner heard me taking about chicken tenders so even made me one to try!

    We stopped in for lunch (too late to get breakfast) I had gf chicken tenders and fries. They make the tenders there and have a dedicated fryer. My lunch was brought out separately by person with gloves on. Was reasonably priced, especially for Jersey shore. It is cash only, but that is common in this area.

    My wife and i just ate at Lemma's. We had a wonderfull meal. We told the hostess/owner that my wife has a wheat allergy and she told us they would clean every thing again before makeing our lunch. We had cheese stake wraps with fries that were great. It was hard to choose just one meal from the gluten free menu. Lemma's is now our list of must visit when we are down the jusery shore. my wife and i cant wait eat here again.
