    this quaint little restaurant is definitely a good find for gluten free. They make GF bread and baked goods, YES you can have dessert :-) Most menu items are gluten free. Sandwiches, burgers and fries, salads, wraps, entree's, and dessert. The service is excellent and the owners and servers are very accommodating to gluten free. There is a separate prep area.

    They know gluten free. The guys are very welcoming and want to make sure every customer has a fantastic experience. I certainly did. Small restaurant, but well worth going to. Will be a repeat customer. The reviews below weren't kidding about the cheesecake!

    Great food. Tons of options. I had the cheeseburger and fries on toasted Italian bread. They have 4 kinds of bread. All desserts but one were gf. We had chocolate lava cake, a triple chocolate cake, and deep fried cc cheesecake. The server and the chef are very knowledgeable about gf and were helpful and friendly. Great place if gluten free!

    Found this place while vacationing. Don was a pleasure. My daughter is gluten free and was very pleased with her options. The whole family had dessert and loved it. All desserts made in house and GF. Delicious

    So many options for celiacs! Good food. Pancakes were thin, more like crepes. Many dessert options, all GF, and delicious! Save room! Tiny place, quirky, sweet.

    Wow! Just wow. All of the food was delicious, and incredible gluten free options. You know a place is doing it right when they specifically list what ISN'T gluten free. Chef Rick came out and personally delivered all the GF food, acknowledging it was prepared separately. All but one of the desserts are GF, and just about every entree had GF options. Personal touch here. It felt like we were dining with friends.

    What a hidden gem- almost didn't go cause "strip mall" restaurant/ but so glad we did! Amazing food the 2 gluten free in our family and the rest of family who isn't- Don did not disappoint and the chef was very nice and came out and checked if everything was good- never have we seen gf cheesecakes! I had gf molten chocolate cake that I was only going to have one bite but almost licked the plate clean๐Ÿ˜

    Two excellent meals served by Don. One lunch and one dinner. Had fish tacos and a cheeseburger with French fries. They have a dedicated fryer and hand cut fries. Everything was delicious and I had no problems.

    Very delicious food i had the Philly cheese steak sandwich and the following day had the Asian chicken tacos both dishes were very tasty and decent size portions I especially liked the Asian kale salad with peanut dressing. The best part of this place is that the staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to gluten free dishes and cross contamination the gluten free dishes are served on different plates and their prices are very affordable.

    The only bad thing about this restaurant is that it's 4 states away from me... Ended up here after a doctor's appt we traveled to MI for. Kept my expectations low. WOW. We got there 15 minutes before closing time but they could not have been nicer and insisted we stay to eat there. The food was delicious and obviously prepared with much love. Even if you don't have to avoid gluten, you should just go eat here. I had apple crisp for dessert, but could have had brownies. I've certainly never had a choice for a gf/df dessert at a restaurant before - usually it's just not an option at all. We all loved it and can't wait to get back.

    Very delicious and with many gluten-free options. There's only 6 items on the menu that weren't gluten free. My blackened chicken tacos were spicy and delicious, and the cheesecake was to die for! Friendly service definitely recommend it :)

    Fantastic family owned restaurant! They had so many gluten free options for kids and adults. They have a separate gluten free cooking area to avoid cross contamination and a separate fryer. Our 5 year old had GF chicken nuggets and French fries and loved it. Our other kids ordered burgers and fries...burgers were huge and the best French fries. Everything is made in house including GF desserts and 8 kinds of GF breads. Adults ordered the BBQ bacon cheeseburger GF with the kale salad and Mahi Tacos GF with fries...all of it delicious! We'll be coming back!

    Absolutely amazing. Small family owned business that truly cares about their customers. Most of the entres can be prepared gluten free. It's so rare in our area to walk in to a restaraunt and be able to order an entire menu of gluten free desserts. Try the deep fried chocolate cheesecake!

    This place is my oasis of restaurants. I know the food will be delicious, the staff attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. 99% of the menu is available as a gluten free option. The chefs take great pride in the product they serve and it shows. The chef themselves are very personable and easy to talk to about any concerns. My nonceliac friends are surprised at how tasty the gf dishes are. The servings are filling. I recommend this place to everyone. You won't be sorry.

    Don our server was great he explained all the options and that they keep everything separated. We had breakfast here and didn't try the desserts but there were plenty of options that sounded delicious. I had the Italian wrap which held together nicely and had a great taste. Would definitely recommend this location for celiac and gluten free.

    Oh. My. Goodness. This is a celiac GEM! The kitchen is amazing. It's separated, nothing gluten ever strays into the gluten free side. The plates are white for gluten eaters, and white with blue rim for gluten free. They make 8 different kinds of bread. I tried the mock rye and the pumpernickel....They were heaven. The ingredients are fresh. All the desserts are gf. I bought 2 lbs of gf croutons for only $3.29/lb!!! I spent far too much only because I ate an appetizer, entree, dessert, and left with a loaf of fresh bread and 2lbs of croutons. Everyone deserves a wonderful gluten-free experience like this. Gluten free or not, the service was wonderful, and the flavor was phenomenal.

    We were waiting to board a cruise boat and needed a solid breakfast and Togo lunch for our celiac daughter. Mi Island was absolutely fantastic. They thought every step through and went above and beyond to communicate with us, ensure our safety, and provide an absolutely delicious meal. And the deep fried cheesecake alone is worth the trip! Mi Island is worth going out of your way for! Quality, clean, and celiac safe food.
