The food was tasty enough. I went there because their menu showed lots of gluten free options. But I fear the staff has not been adequately educated on the need for strict gluten free ingredients for people with Celiac's. I told the hostess and my server that I have celiac's, and they confirmed the options on the menu were gluten free. However, either the food and some gluten in the ingredients or the dish was prepared in contact with gluten. I ordered the fish tacos, which came with side of sweet potato fries (which I asked explicitly if they were confirmed GF). I was feeling sick before I even left the restaurant. I'm assuming either the vinaigrette on the tacos had gluten or the fries were made in a fryer used for other items. I did not even try the condiments brought with the fries and asked the server to bring me the bottle. Heinz. Not GF. Please do not advertise that you have gluten free options if you do not understand what is needed for people with celiacs.
Cafe on the Lake is very accommodating towards gluten free. The waiter brought me and my grandfather gluten free toast and English muffins from the kitchen. The chef also came to our table to explain the gluten free options on the brunch buffet, so we had omelets, sausage, bacon, salmon, beef, and mashed potatoes. Bottomless mimosas were awesome too. There are no gluten free dessert options though. Not a huge buffet but it was definitely filling and the staff was very knowledgeable.
Room service is always a risk, but I had a long day. Ordered room service with Shrimp and Grits indicated multiple times that I had a gluten “allergy”. The “fried egg” on it turned out to be friend in a bread coating and they put bread on the tray.
If you are attending a conference here, bring your own food. After speaking with the dining manager of an event I attended, it doesn't appear that the staff is educated on celiac. They understand basic gluten-free, but he looked at me like I was a little crazy to refuse the salad dressing. I couldn't get a straight answer about cross-contamination protocol. I opted for a salad with no dressing, just fresh lemon wedges. They brought out lettuce tomatoes and corn. It's 4 hours later and I have twinge of discomfort. I hope it stays at that way.
A white table cloth restaurant that was very accommodating to my needs. Steaks are cooked with butter, salt and pepper and no cross contamination. Beautiful setting with an expansive ocean view.
Our host, server (who was a bartender) and manager were all AMAZING. The manager came over to tell me about what things were safe and not and about their kitchen practices. Food was delicious & drinks were good as well!!
Food was awful at every place on the plantation, I got sick to the point my stomach was bleeding by day 2. I sent back my food twice bc they put crackers in it and said they were not gf.
Sunrise was the best GF breakfast I’ve had at a hotel. It was fantastic. Marche burette, falcon’s best and veranda were very good for gluten free (and vegetarian). I didn’t have much luck with Oceanside but still had good options and the concierge was quite helpful in helping us navigate the selections.
All restaurants on property have GF options with the exception of the pizza place. Room service, breakfast, etc. can all make GF foods and very celiac friendly. Spoke to the chef who overseas all of the restaurants and he made amazing accommodations for us! Highly recommend!!!
Was here for a conference. Very pleased that meals in the ballroom offered a GF station for breads in the am. Has cards that labeled allergens on the buffet dishes. However, ( and I'm picky), I was dissatisfied that none of the meats on the final evening were gluten free. (This was a bike ride for those with T1D). Being vegetarian for a meal will not kill me. The food was excellent- ALL of it. And the wait staff was so fantastic. I will be glad to return next year.
This is the ideal place for Celiacs! Ordering at the pool and the staff will bring your gfree menu to order food from the restaurant on the property. Inside, the Seaglass bar had gfree bread top make sandwiches. Breakfast time... head to the Sunrise Cafe for gfree quiche, bread, cereal, muffins, biscuits, etc. aka carb overload which is rare for us Celiacs!
