SO YUMMY! My #1 Halifax-based recommendation for people with Celiac Disease who want to eat out at a non-dedicated gluten free restaurant! I’ve eaten here multiple times, and I’ve never been sick after. Despite their disclaimer that they can’t guarantee no cross-contamination, they take Celiac Disease VERY seriously. They take all of the precautions necessary to prevent cross-contamination.

This place was great for people with celiac disease like myself. The menu was very thorough and even mentioned not to eat something if you had celiac. I have to stay away from eggs and milk as well, and I had plenty of food to choose from. I ended up getting a bacon cheeseburger (vegan cheese) and roasties (potato wedges). Waitress was very knowledgeable. Would recommend.

A friend and I had lunch at The Wooden Monkey. It was Excellent! The menu is well-marked re gluten-free, vegan, or contains dairy or nuts, and there are lots of choices. I had the Fish & Roasties, which was very tasty and well-prepared. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. He also made the best Arnold Palmer (Lemonade & Iced Tea) I've ever tasted!

I look forward to returning when I'm in Halifax again.

We flew into Halifax and I found this restaurant on this app. Let me just say that it was totally worth the half hour drive from the airport hotel to get there! Almost the entire menu is GF and all 5 of us absolutely loved our meals. I would give 10 stars if I could!!! Loved it!

Was told almost all menu items can be made gluten free. We had the gluten free pizza and it was delicious. Even the fries or roasties as they call them aren't deep fried but roasted so they are gluten free as well. Definitely recommend this for good gf food.

This is a wonderful gf restaurant. Lots of choices as almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free. My partner follows a gf, plant based, low fodmap, no refined sugar diet and she had a 3 course meal complete with dessert! Our hotel, the prince George was a block away, but this restaurant would be worth a special trip! What a blessing.
