I have to join the chorus of positive reviews- Really great food and experience, and a must-visit for celiacs in Bar Harbor. Every server knew the GF process. Their menu is marked with * for GF/ GF available. The fryer is dedicated for french fries. Food came out flagged. I had the lobster mac and cheese and it was delicious! Their chowder is not GF but you will have many options.

Tip: The wait time was quite long, as they have reduced seating due to covid. You can add your name to the wait list online.

Great food and lots of options. Most of the menu could be made gluten free. Waitress was very knowledgeable. Food came out flagged as an allergy meal. I had mac & cheese and, as a very sensitive celiac, felt fine afterwards.

Sat on the porch and had a GF cider and the lobster roll (came with an allergy flag) for lunch. The waitress confirmed a dedicated fryer is used for the fries. Overall it was a great experience and I didn’t get sick. Would definitely go back. Menu had extensive options.

There are many items on the menu that can be made Gluten Free. The dishes come identified as “allergy” which gives you more confidence they are serious about offering safe food.

I had a haddock sandwich and It was tasty and the GF bread was good too. I was disappointed that the only option for the Kids Menu that could be made GF was the Mac&cheese.

One of the best lunches I have had in years. I got the lobster tacos. Lots of lobster, cabbage, avocado and yummy sauce on corn tortillas. The fries are some of the best I have ever had. Highly recommend and we will be returning.

Ate here twice in the last 3 days. Both visits were amazing! They truly go out of their way to make all guests, especially those with allergies feel comfortable. Our first waitress told us, the owners designed the restaurant to easily cater to those with celiac disease, and they take it very seriously. They have gluten free rolls, pasta and taco shells. All items on their menu noted with an asterisk can be made gluten free with a minor adjustment, and they didn’t hesitate to accommodate something that wasn’t on the menu. Highly recommend, I have celiac and am very sensitive to cross, no problems whatsoever. We will definitely visit again!

Ate here our first night in Bar Harbor. With a Celiac, a vegetarian, and a "meat and potatoes only" person in our group, finding food for everyone can be tricky. Side Street had something for everyone, and I was able to have lobster mac and cheese. The waitress was also gluten free, so she understood the importance of keeping my food separate and so on. The table shared the gluten free warm brownie dessert. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

Very knowledgeable staff, dedicated fryer, careful on prep and the food was awesome. I am a very sensitive Celiac, so always nervous about eating out. Our server Maya took great care to answer my questions. We did go near opening time so it wasn’t as rushed. Cubano sandwich and to die for Dairy free butternut squash soup. Lovely place.

I ate here twice during my stay in Bar Harbor. Our server had to double check about the dedicated fryer and what was gf. For dinner I had the crab dip which they gave me carrots for dipping. For lunch the next day I had the best lobster roll of my trip with fries. It was all delicious and I didn't get sick.
