They have really gone downhill precaution wide. The last few times I have been there or ordered carry out they have mixed up the order and added gluten items to the order (bringing wheat English muffins or toast to table, and adding them to take out order! Very dangerous for celiac!

No longer safe for celiacs! This used to be my go to place when visitng the Northshore. I have eaten there (celiac)many times. They have become careless. When I complained about being exposed to gluten errors (Wheat English muffin brought to table and placed in 2 carry out orders off the GF menu and regular pancakes brought to table) the young managers on duty were very defensive and took no responsibility. Extremely disappointing. Too dangerous to go back for celiac!! Beware!!
The gluten free options are amazing!! The grits are FANTASTIC. I didn't have a reaction and I am VERY SENSITIVE!! Best breakfast I have had in a long while, I was diagnosed over 10 years ago.
Not a GF facility, but my understanding is that they take precautions. The staff was diligent about keeping the two GF plates in our group separate and safe.

Amazing! There were so many options on there that I haven't seen on a restaurant menu since going GF 2 years ago. It was hard to choose one! Gluten free cinnamon rolls/pastries are brought in from a nearby dedicated GF bakery.
Staff was conscientious and answered my questions. They brought out the GF plates (2 for our group) separately.
The server and cooks seem knowledgeable about GF allergy and celiac. They change gloves and reportedly have dedicated cooking equipment for GF dishes. Unfortunately, I ordered the White Veggie Delight omelette, and was disturbed to find during my second bite a large piece of bacon or chorizo. As a vegetarian, this made me very uncomfortable. They remade the dish for me very quickly. However, this concerns me about the possibility of cross contamination in the kitchen. How did meat into my food?
You all that say celiac friendly need to ask because they DO cook everything on the same grill, cross contamination is a real issue here they DO NOT have dedicated cooking spaces. I dont want to 1 star this place bc they were open and honest about the situation...but this makes wonder about the authenticity of people saying celiac friendly. If you just need GF food their menu looks awesome
This a wonderful place to eat! Stopped here on the way through heading north and on our way home. I had the gluten free cinnamon roll breakfast and the pancake breakfast. Yummy!! My plate was red, to indicate allergy. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.
Chiming in to support their Celiac safe cred. I eat here regularly and have never gotten sick. Better option than Egglectic. At breakfast joints I stick to egg dishes to stay safe; here the San Antonio skillet is so darned good I can’t bring myself to order anything else anyway. Great coffee and iced tea.
Wow, I am surprised at the harsh reviews prior to mine. I have to say I was very impressed with the GF menu and the variety of dishes I had to choose from! The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable of Celiac and assured me I would be safe eating here. The sweet potato skillet I ate was amazing and there were so many other delicious sounding choices that I cannot wait to go back. I am relatively new to my Celiac diagnosis and it’s so nice to find places that don’t just have a couple options but a full, equally delicious menu!
I will preface this with saying I’ve been to other Egg Harbor Locations without issue. My server was very rude and I could tell right away wasn’t taking my severe celiacs seriously. I ordered my food and said over and over again how sensitive I am and to please put allergy on the tag and even spoke to a manager. The food comes out for my friend gluten free (like she requested) and mine came out on normal plates with a side of crackers. When I noted this and sent it back she just re-plated the same contaminated food and rolled her eyes at me. It took her all of 30 seconds to come back to I asked her if it was the same food and she huffed and said yes. I asked for a manager and when I told him what had happened, he didn’t apologize once and even stood there and argued with me about my food. Then he offered to have it remade but by then I already felt so uncomfortable eating there I said please just cancel it all. He then argued with me again and said he was offended I didn’t trust him and walked off. I didn’t eat anything while I was there and eventually others in the restaurant seemed so uncomfortable he offered to comp my friend’s meal. Not an enjoyable experience at all. The wait staff was not only negligent and untrained but rude and flippant about my food allergy. The manager was also rude and didn’t take my allergies seriously. I have never had a bad experience at the other locations of this restaurant but would never return here again. Not only negligent but rude on top of it!
This place was the most amazing gf restaurant find possibly in my entire 4 years post celiac diagnosis! The menu was extensive and actually a full quality print vs some paper flyer or just a couple notes on normal menu! I cannot wait to go back through ATL just so I can eat here again. I had pancakes with maple syrup and just yum! Also had first cinnamon roll I’ve had in years just wow! It appeared they served all GF meals on red plates and even had a separate person carry mine out to avoid any risk of cross contamination. I enjoyed a yummy mint green hot tea that was served with a bowl of real honey. Literally nothing bad to say about entire experience, service was great food was fantastic I felt like a regular patron for once and loved it
Egg Harbor is phenomenal. Great celiac friendly options. One of the largest gluten free menus I’ve seen for brunch, as it should be considering that several options for breakfast should naturally be gluten free. Solid customer service. You can’t go wrong here, especially with the amount of options. Their gluten free cinnamon roll is awesome and you can get toast here and it is done in a separate toaster. I appreciate that they know what celiac is and how to properly accommodate my needs.
Followed the advice of other users and got the GF Cinnamon Roll breakfast with fruit instead of eggs. They have a GF menu and use different colored plates to differentiate a GF meal. Very knowledgeable staff.
Finally went for the first time today and they did not disappoint! The staff is so super friendly and knowledgeable, and the gf menu is amazing!! Thought I was getting glutened because the gf pancakes were THAT GOOD! Gluten free pancakes that are as fluffy and delicious as regular ones!!! I cannot wait to go back and try more. Their gf cinnamon roll is next on my list...
A real GF menu and the food was amazing! We will definitely be back! Staff are knowledgeable and went to check when necessary. It was a fantastic experience. I’m already planning to eat breakfast there tomorrow!
Food was mediocre at best. Cinnamon rolls are hard, overpriced, and we didn’t finish it. Service was horrible. We did speak to the manager about it and let her know about our experience. We definitely feel it’s overrated and not worth it, but I suspect it gets rave reviews because they have an extensive gluten-free menu. I was not confident in the server in her understanding the seriousness of celiac (acted like I was annoying her and she knew it all), but ate because I was desperate. With that being said, I didn’t get sick, which is why I give them two stars instead of one.
The staff was courteous and immediately alerted the manager to come to my table upon hearing of my allergies. The manager seemed frazzled and impatient. He gave me a gluten free menu which actually had a lot on it...the problem I had was that I’m also dairy free...I asked him what he thought and he straight up said “That’s going to be really hard to achieve, unless you just get a plate of meat” and that’s exactly what I ended up getting the plate is called “The traditional GF breakfast with Meat” on the GF menu.
