    Not a ton of options but I had a bun-less burger with fries and didn't get sick. Just being able to have fries was great. They have a gluten free menu with options, be sure to remember to mention that gluten/wheat makes you sick when you order if you have celiac.

    They've really improved options and labeling since we last visited. Pick up plastic menu in center of cafeteria with gf options. Gf fries. Gf burger and dog without bun. Gf fish tostada (yum!!!). Gf pizza option. Also had numerous gf snacks like Lucy's cookies. Happy for options.

    Anyone with celiac disease (or celiac kids) knows how stressful it can be of you don't plan where to eat. I did my research. I looked into multiple websites for reviews about the Acquirium's gf friendliness. I was so frustrated when we went to get lunch there. The cafe is set up like a cafeteria. none of the menus mention gf products. you'd have to go to every counter and ask about gf, whole the other 1000 people in the acquirium attempt to order... We finally figured out the only gf option was pizza if we waited an hour. We decided to avoid the madness and go into the restuarant. There are very knowledgeable but have very limited options.

    The cafe is very accommodating and the food was very good. A little pricey but good. Garlic fries are awesome!

    This was the best cafe inside a museum/aquarium/ zoo or any of the sort I have ever been to! All of the food was good, not just the gluten free options. They had amazing fresh salads, great gluten free pizza, gluten free soup options, and delicious gluten free cookies, just to name a few things. I would recommend eating here if you visit the aquarium, it was delicious
