Pappas has its own extensive gluten free menu. We ordered take out. I explained our celiacs and they were very clear that the only issue of cross contamination would be if it had to go in a fryer. My daughter got the wings (they assured us it was baked) and I got the crab cake. Both were fantastic. They were very kind about our food limitations and pleasant to work with.
— Separate gluten-free menu
They are up front that they can't guarantee cross-contamination. They don't have a dedicated gluten free fryer so avoid anything fried. Items are clearly marked though. I spoke to the server and she was helpful. I did not get sick.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Gluten free crab cake was awesome! It was all lump crab with no filler, and it was large! Best table service I’ve ever received. Everyone and everything was great!
Amazing crab cake! They had a separate gluten free menu and their staff was very understanding and accommodating.
The first time I was there the waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. He checked with the chef with any questions her was not sure of. He told me the the fries are not in a dedicated fryer. I recommended that they take them off GF menu . No problems that night. He was concerned and helpful and told us that he talked to the chef. The second time I went, the young waitress said that there could be gluten contamination. I assumed wrongly that she would talk to the chef. I should not have ordered and gone with my gut feeling. I had stomach issues, headache and pain afterwards. I am question if there is a protocol for the staff in place
My go to place when I am in this area. Very knowledgeable kitchen staff. I educated a new waiter about celiac vs. gluten free. Delicious gluten free crab cakes. This my third visit and always have felt fine afterwards.
The original Parkville location has not caught up with the cockeysville location on GF items. But the Cockeysville location is highly recommended. As others have pointed out, they have amazing GF crabcakes. Their regular crabcakes are some of the best around and the GF version is at least as good.
Unlike some places, the GF menu is extensive and includes pasta dishes, sides, desserts, and other entrees. Most of the staff I've dealt with are knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to the GF menu items.
I go here at least once per month.
Amazing GF crab cakes!!! So good!!
L. O. V. E. Pappas!!! Huge GF menu and helpful staff. Have ordered several items and have never had an issue!! Suggested they add themselves to this app, so glad they did!! Get the word out!!!
Big gluten free menu! Had my first crab cake in over two years since my celiac diagnosis and it was amazing!! And very reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back again!
They offer a gluten free version of their famous crab cake. the gluten free menu is extensive and i recommend coming to this restaurant.
The BEST and biggest lump crab cakes! A double sided GF menu gave me a ton of safe options. A great spot for a GF lunch or dinner!
