Staff kept telling me the wings are gluten free, but when I asked if anything with gluten was cooked in the same fryer they said no. I had a weird feeling so I asked one more bartender who didn’t seem so frazzled and she said the boneless wings were cooked in the same fryer as the regular wings, aka cross contamination. She was super helpful in suggesting the fries and nachos which were safe for me. I’m very grateful for that one bartender but the other bartender and waitress who weren’t listening and had no idea what I was talking about were frustrating to deal with.

They have RedBridge beer, gluten free fries (which we get without the seasoning because it tastes better), cheese burger without the bun. Follow @RissFlex on INSTAGRAM for more GF foodie stuff

I've eaten here a few times and never had any issues. I let the waitress know I had celiac and she checked everything with the cook to be sure I was safe. The fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer and I never had any problems with them (though everything else fried goes into a shared fryer). If you don't mind a burger without a bun, there are a good range of options on the burgers. You just need to communicate clearly with the staff. Go and enjoy.

I will start this by saying: It's really just a bar. So I keep my expectations low with the staff knowing (or caring) much about my allergy. With that said, I have never had a reaction to Chickie's crab fries, which are GF and cooked in a dedicated fryer. It's quite a convenient option for me as they are available many places (concert venues, airports, ect) that don't have much GF food. This is a huge deal and I thank them for that. Secondly, I only go to this restaurant when I don't want to miss a night out with friends. I go for the bone-in buffalo wings, which do not contain gluten. Sometimes I'm okay, and other times I'm not, so cross contamination is a concern here.

Crab fries are gluten-free and cooked in a dedicated fryer. Bone-in buffalo wings are gluten-free. I have never had a reaction. The owner of chickies is GF and vocal about this.

Love it here! I have been many times and have always had great experiences! Occasionally in other locations I have been told they don’t not have a gluten free menu but if you just look online, there clearly is one! Everything is delicious and a variety of things to choose from! I will be sad when we move away and can’t come here anymore!

Was a favorite for my daughter, but there was an issue on our last visit. She only eats the fries with the cheese. Not sure what happened, but guessing some kind of contamination with the fryer. So disappointed as it one of the few places we like to go.

First of all, there is not a separate GF menu. The waitress was not very knowledgeable. There are very limited offerings. Very disappointed.

The gluten-free cheese steak is just a cheesesteak served on a plate without a bun. But it cost a dollar less than the regular sandwich. They have one kind of gluten free beer, Redbridge. They said the crab fries are gluten free. As far as gluten-free meals go, it's not bad.

You definitely have to ask questions and really explain your situation but overall good place for some gluten free junk food. The crab fries are done in a dedicated fryer (always ask). I also love their wings, crab nachos, cheesesteak nachos and shrimp. Also the mussels are amazing just be sure to remind them NO BREAD.

A sports bar with good GF choices. This was my first time to a Chickie and Pete's, but surely not my last. We sat at the bar and asked for a GF menu. I asked the usual questions and the bartender had all the answers. Including that they have a separate fryer. She even offered some cider choices as a drink. Being able to eat fried food in a sports bar is like a slice of heaven. Just the fact that any of the appetizers were GF would have been enough for me. We had cheese steak nachos, crab fries with cheese sauce and buffalo wings. All were very good and were nice hearty portions. A nice bonus is that their GF menu has "naturally" GF items, there is no upcharge.

Good fries. They have a gluten free menu as well. I'm worried it's not really done in a dedicated fryer.

Very limited menu (basically only meat) and Unknowledgable staff (my waiter asked the manager about dedicated frier and took 20 min to get back to me with info.... It was NOT busy) more expensive than it seems: the $18 crabs legs don't come with a side dish, that's extra Many things come with weird sauces and seasonings that aren't in the menu description.

I absolutely despise this place. The staff is so rude in general, but I've actually been screamed at while at my table for taking too long to order when they were busy.

They do not have a dedicated fryer so the only options for me (I have celiac) were steamed clams, crabs, lobster, and burgers with no buns (though I would not really be sure I would trust getting the burger because they have zero training for cross-contamination. No side dishes available for gf or non-gf people. Left hungry and paid $13 for a bowl of steamed clams. The food we are was very tasty, but disappointing for someone who has celiac and can't have cross contaminated food. Would not recommend for someone with celiac unless you want to leave hungry.

Love that the crab fries are gluten free!! Also have a gluten free menu if you ask for it. Got a chicken cheesesteak and it itself is great but weird having it not on a bun and just on a plate..

I was fed gluten here after ordering off of their GF menu and being very specific with our twit of a server. After I notified her that the boneless wings (which there menu states are all GF) came out and I took a bite, she said "Oh they are new, so our menu is wrong." Not only was every order in our party of 3 screwed up, but we could never find our server to get things fixed. We eventually realized that she kept sitting down in the corner of the restaurant, because we were her only table.

They have a gluten free menu and a dedicated fryer. All of their fries and their gluten free fried food goes into the dedicated fryer. I had the crab fries, crab legs and gluten free buffalo wings. It was amazing!!!!

How can this restaurant say they're offering a separate GF menu and then list burgers as being without the bun -- and sandwiches without the roll?? --seriously, how lazy can you be? it's sooo easy to procure GF buns and rolls -- so why would a place of this size with multiple locations go to the trouble and expense of printing GF menus and then not stock something so simple...? crazy...waste of time. what's the fun of eating crab fries with a burger without a bun -- tough to pick up. waste of a trip and an amateur approach to doing business. it's a pretty far distance from my house, so it's disappointing -- just know this before you go.

I ordered take out and told the person the whole order was gluten free. Plus, after ordering each individual item from the gluten-free menu I said "the gluten free version." When I got home they had croutons on the salad and bread in the bag. My daughter's meal was ruined and she had nothing to eat.

I have Celiac Disease this was my first time eating here. I had buffalo wings and crab fries; delicious! I didn't get sick! I'm so happy, after five years living in Northeast Philadelphia , I can finally eat out! Thank you so much Chickie's and Pete's!!! I recently called to place an order here but when I asked about a Gluten Free Menu, the person had no idea what I was talking about. I don't know if they have a new manager or not or if they changed their menu. But I no longer recommend this place for those with Celiac Disease. 😞

Chickie's and Pete's is a great gluten free friendly restaurant to eat at. So far, I've never had any issues with their amazing food. I love ordering from Chickie's and Pete's, and highly recommend it. Great restaurant to eat at too as it has a very cool atmosphere to it when any games are on.

I have celiac and I am very sensitive to cross-contamination. Upon arriving we got the GF menu. However the server had no idea what gluten is, or what cross-contamination means. I asked him if the oil is shared with gluten items. He went to the kitchen, came back and said yes all the oil is the same. So I ate nothing, not feeling safe. Also, afterwards I contacted the restaurant and the manager said that the fries have their own safe oil. It's confusing to me so I wouldn't go back.

The crab fries are great but I don't feel like you can make much of a meal there. Good quick eat/appetizer option.

the famous crab fries are gf. Almost all the seafood that isn't fried is gf. All of the nachos and wings are gf. They have a gf menu but get a full menu along with it to read descriptions. My server wasn't knowledgeable about gf but admitted that and got a manager when I had questions about what I ordered.

Chickie's and Pete's has a gluten free menu and server was knowledgeable. I had crab fries and shrimp and did not get sick. We sat inside so I cannot speak for their outside boardwalk walk up stand but if you sit in the restaurant and speak with a server you should be fine. Apparently all their locations have a dedicated fryer for their crab fries.

5 stars, as far as sports bars go. Awesome atmosphere with tons of TVs, high ceilings which allows for huge projectors to show games, great service, prices and food. For my gluten free eaters, the tortilla chips and fries are both gluten free. They also use a separate fryer from their breaded goods, so no cross contamination! Try the Buffalo Chicken nachos... the chicken is grilled, so no worries there. It is covered in cheese sauce and bleu cheese, too. I opted for extra buffalo sauce for more balance between hot and cheesy. I got the bacon cheeseburger with no bun, which was made from high quality sirloin. It was incredibly good! Their mixed drinks didn't skimp on the alcohol either. High recommended. Can't wait to go back!
