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.

Lots of gluten free options and the roll for the lobster roll was great. It was nice having a sandwich with a soft piece of bread for a change. So glad we were able to eat here.

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.

Had an amazing experience here!! Thanks to the reviews I was passing through and thought I would check it out. Boy was I in for a surprise!!! Was lucky enough to have a Lobster melt on a GF bun!! They even had a flag notifying all staff of celiac. To top it all off my server was amazing, shoot cant remember his name but was knowledgeable and content to help with any questions. If in the area you must check it out!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

Have buns, bread and sub rolls. 95 percent of menu can be made gf. They have a dedicated fryer so fries are safe. And they bring the food with an allergy toothpick out. Very safe here

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.

Staff was instantly knowledge. Waitress told us they even have several people on staff with celiac. Almost any dish can be made gf. They have a dedicated toaster for those gf hamburger buns and dedicated fryer for French fries. Quite impressive.

The staff is very attentive when it comes to gluten-free options. They also only fry the fries so their fries are gluten free! Went here twice in the week we were on vacation because it was a safe bet.

Had the Lobster Mac & Cheese and it really hit the spot. No issues and they were very knowledgeable and safe for all allergies. My wife has unusual allergies and after checking their list they couldn't guarantee and suggested alternatives.

Lots of great GF options - not just a couple things to check the GF box. Excellent Mac & cheese even! They have GF bread and bun or put on lettuce/greens. Much of the menu can be made GF. Locals love this place!

This was a great gluten free lunch for my our whole family but especially for my celiac boys. The GF options are way more plentiful than similar restaurants and I also love that they are open year round.

Great lobster roll, informed staff. Suggest to order without the bun, or ask to grill the roll.

The owners are both gluten free and the staff is very knowledgeable. They don't have a separate menu because 90% of the regular menu can be made gluten free! The food was incredible and I couldn't say enough good things about it.

Amazing. Huge menu selection, easy to navigate. Knowledgeable & accommodating staff, DEDICATED FRYER for the tasty fries... yes!!! I'm addicted to they're Lobster Mac & Cheese (pasta is strained in dedicated strainer). Ate here several times & never once got sick & I'm very sensitive.

It was ok but the options were a bit limited. Notably for the type of restaurant, there is no GF fryer for the fries.

Really good, a LOT of options. I also have to be dairy free, sadly I found cheese in my taco but was easily able to pick around it. Switched the flour tortilla for corn.

Food was good, but threw it up almost immediately. Might've been bad seafood (got lobster mac and cheese) or gluten.

Soooo many gluten free options! I've never been to a restaurant that had such an extensive menu filled with gluten free options like this. First time I was able to have Mac and cheese since I found out I had celiac! I was so thrilled, I had to go a few times during my vacation.

This place was...fine. I ordered the lobster mac, and it was good but nothing special. The kitchen sent out a regular mac plate, so I was lucky the server caught that it was not the GF pasta as she was about to serve it to me. She quickly swapped it for the GF version. No guarantee all servers are as knowledgeable, so I have to rate this restaurant as not safe for celiacs.
