SPOKIN VERIFIED


Ghostfish Brewing Company Taproom + Restaurant

Location: Seattle, Washington

“Ghostfish Brewery not only has delicious gluten-free beers, but a wide selection of pub food prepared in a 100% gluten-free kitchen. I love ordering the gluten-free fish and chips with a blonde ale.”

@brenbaxter, who manages milk, wheat, and celiac-gluten allergies

CALIFORNIA

Riley’s Brew Pub

@apalin, who manages peanut and soy allergies

@samsafeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and shellfish allergies

COLORADO

Gondola Pub & Grill

Location: Steamboat Springs, Colorado

“This very casual spot is right at the ski mountain. We had grilled cheese and French fries. They use canola oil.”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

The Old Mine

Location: Erie, Colorado

“Staff takes my son’s food allergies seriously and sends out someone from the kitchen to talk to us. So nice! We safely eat the BBQ meats and wings here.”

@erin3d, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, and legume allergies

FLORIDA

Cooke’s of Dublin

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This place is great for allergies. They have a gluten-free ‘beer batter’ that’s made with champagne instead of beer and is safe for multiple allergies. Anything they serve fried they can make gluten-free, including fish and chips, chicken breast strips, and onion rings. Everything comes from a dedicated fryer and they put oregano in the gluten-free batter (and not in the original) so people can clearly see the difference. I’ve never had a bad experience and I’ve been coming here for years.”

@imbanananas, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, shellfish, seed, avocado, and fruit allergies

McGuire’s Irish Pub

Location: Pensacola, Florida

“While this didn’t, at face value, seem to be the safest restaurant from the outside looking in, I have actually had multiple great experiences here! The staff has consistently been great when dealing with my food allergies. In my experience, we have talked to the server who has brought out or talked to the head chef or manager to ensure my allergies would be accommodated. I ordered a plain chicken breast, with olive oil, salt, and pepper only prepared on a clean area of the grill, and a plain baked potato, cooked separately as well, with no butter and had no issues. I felt confident that the staff truly cared and took my allergies seriously every time I visited! Would definitely go again! The atmosphere is a reason to go in itself! Certainly unique!”

@allergystrategy, who manages peanut, milk, egg, and shellfish allergies

Raglan Road Irish Pub

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This is the sit-down location next to the quick service Cooke’s of Dublin. They both have a gluten-free ‘beer batter’ that’s made with champagne instead of beer and is safe for multiple allergies. Anything they serve fried they can make gluten-free, including fish and chips, chicken breast strips, and onion rings. Everything comes from a dedicated fryer and they put oregano in the gluten-free batter (and not in the original) so people can clearly see the difference. The waitstaff is helpful, knowledgeable, and if there’s something they don’t know, they’ll get you someone who does. For those with shellfish allergies, I believe they fry scallops in the dedicated gluten-free fryer—I don’t have a cross-contamination issue with my shellfish allergy but those who do, definitely ask for clarification.”

@imbanananas, who manages who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, shellfish, seed, avocado, and fruit allergies

Rose & Crown Pub

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This is one of my favorite restaurants. When I went to Disney World a few years ago my family and I went to The Rose and Crown. We let the waitress know about my allergies and she had the chef come out and talk to me. He cooked me a steak, crisps, and asparagus. It was delicious! They were super cautious and did their best to keep me safe!”

@mria100, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish, wheat, sesame, grain, chickpea, celiac-gluten allergies

“Gluten-free and vegan options, including gluten-free Kaiser rolls!”

@leekantz, who manages a celiac-gluten allergy

ILLINOIS

Duke Of Perth

@adamwood, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Floyd’s Pub

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Floyd’s has great burgers with plain buns (no sesame seeds) and wings. It is just a neighborhood bar, but they have great food and it is family-friendly. They have a simple sidewalk patio in the summer and darts in the backroom in the winter.”

@sheberhard, who manages tree nut and seed allergies

Lady Gregory’s Irish Bar & Restaurant

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Separate gluten-free menu with some delicious options. Fairly knowledgeable staff. My son loves the Gluten-Free Lobster Mac and Cheese. Just be careful with the buns—ask them not to toast because it is a shared toaster.”

@rwmha, who manages a celiac-gluten allergy

Marge’s Still

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“This is a true gastropub where you can have anything from a nice piece of meat or fish to traditional pub fare. The manager’s family has severe nut allergies so the staff is very aware and accommodating regarding nut allergies. The last I checked there was only one salad on the menu with a tree nut ingredient.”

@laroko, who manages a tree nut allergy

Location: Chicago, Illinois

MAINE

Sarah’s Cafe & Twin Schooners Pub

Location: Wiscasset, Maine

“This is a favorite for the grownups while we are on vacation. But, it’s also a favorite for our kiddo. There are honestly not a ton of options, but they happily make her a safe burger patty. Also, they do not have a fryer, so their fries get baked in the oven and are dairy-free! And one of their staff went out of her way since there were no safe baked goods and brought out giant flavor ice for her free of charge each time we visited. If you’re ever in Wiscasset, you have to check out Sarah’s!”

@punkinmama, who manages cashew and milk allergies

MASSACHUSETTS

Knox Trail Inn

Location: Otis, Massachusetts

“Reasonable prices and a local feel. They have Udi’s gluten-free buns so I was able to have a grilled chicken sandwich! They also have noted gluten-free wings on the menu.”

@allergytravelr, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish, wheat, grain, fruit, celiac-gluten, and MSG allergies

Ned Devine’s

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

@safemom, who manages peanut, tree nut, egg, seed, and chickpea allergies

The Barn Pub & Grille

Location: Amesbury, Massachusetts

@sabudama, who manages peanut, tree nut, and legume allergies

Library Sports Pub & Grill

Location: West Bloomfield Township, Michigan

“This has been a family favorite for years, and after years of my son only eating French fries, he tried the chicken tenders and fries! The staff is very attentive and went in the back and took pictures of all labels to reassure me that they were safe! This is a go-to for our travel baseball team!”

@tbf6, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, shellfish, sesame, and legume allergies

Mountain Town Station Restaurant & Brew Pub

Location: Mount Pleasant, Michigan

“Love this place for good pizza, burgers, and more! They have a kind staff that is educated on allergens in different dishes, and they always check with the kitchen! Really tasty eats too! (If it fits your dietary restrictions, I recommend the fried onion appetizer!”

@mevola475, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

New Holland Brewing – Pub on 8th

Location: Holland, Michigan

“They were so helpful—contain no peanuts, and they cleared a new space to make my meal! So accommodating and kind! They also have vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options on the menu if that’s what you need!”

@mevola475, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

TJ’s Pub

Location: Manistee, Michigan

“They have specific foods that they can modify to make gluten-free. It is a large selection in comparison to other places and the quality is decent. I believe that there is a risk of cross-contamination, although the staff is great and if you ask I am sure they will do their best.”

@mdceliac, who manages a celiac-gluten allergy

MINNESOTA

George and the Dragon

Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota

“This place is amazing! They are great with nut allergies and they have the best battered green beans.”

@poppy, who manages peanut, tree nut, and sesame allergies

Harriet’s Inn

Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota

“Me, and my deathly allergic brother are both able to eat safely here. The staff was able to cook our food on a separate part of the grill away from the one peanut item. The staff was great!”

@poppy, who manages peanut, tree nut, and sesame allergies

McCormick’s Pub and Restaurant

@nuttylmt, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish, pork, vegetable, fruit, fennel, carrageenan, and gums allergies

Slippery Otter Pub

Location: West Yellowstone, Montana

“Ate here with family and friends. I have a severe peanut allergy and our friend is celiac. They have no peanuts or tree nuts in the whole restaurant! They also have gluten-free buns, bread, and pizza crusts but can’t guarantee gluten cross-contamination. The waitstaff was friendly but not super receptive to allergy questions. However, food was good, quick, affordable, and most importantly safe for everyone to eat!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages a peanut allergy

NEW HAMPSHIRE

The Common Man

Location: Ashland, New Hampshire

“The waitress that served us was very nice, and when I told her I had a nut allergy she assured us it wouldn’t be a problem with my food. I ordered the chicken sandwich and she said it was prepared in a separate area that didn’t have nuts in it anyway, so there wasn’t any risk of cross-contamination. The food was delicious, especially the truffle parmesan fries!”

@bakerkitten, who manages a tree nut allergy

NEW JERSEY

Celtic Cottage Pub and Patio Bar

Location: Long Branch, New Jersey

“I ate the fish and chips. The waiter was also the chef, and was not the most knowledgeable about allergies but assured me there was nothing with tree nuts on the menu. For any other allergy, I would not say they are the most accommodating, but the menu is simple and familiar for those of us with tree nut allergies. And delicious!”

@hope1313, who manages a tree nut allergy

O’Nieal’s

Location: Hoboken, New Jersey

“I have been going to O’Nieal’s for many years. They do not have tree nuts on the menu that I’m even aware of. I always ask and I have never had any concern with hundreds of meals I’ve eaten.”

Beautiful property with lots of room to spread out and let kids be kids.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy

McNally’s Tavern

@delaneybrody, who manages peanut, tree nut, and egg allergies

Ron’s Original Bar & Grille

Location: Exton, Pennsylvania

“Ron’s is my absolute favorite restaurant when I’m home! The menu is clearly labeled with what is gluten-free and what can be made gluten-free which is almost everything! The owner’s daughter has celiac, so they understand the risk of cross-contamination. There is a dedicated fryer and they have gluten-free pizza, wings, sandwiches, pasta and so much more. They always put allergy sticks in the food and label takeout with bright green stickers. I love Ron’s and the options are amazing!”

@izzytri12, who manages tree nut, fish, and sesame allergies

Street Meet The American Tavern

Location: Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

“The waiter was very grateful for my allergy card and confirmed if there were any issues with the grill. I got a burger patty with lettuce, mustard, and a side salad. I was able to put my burger on my salad. The best thing was having a card. They were good with my allergies because it was obvious to them since they might not have the most experience with allergies. It was pretty good food, and I would recommend it to others.”

WASHINGTON

Barrelhouse Pub & Pizza

@cfillingim, who manages a tree nut allergy

WASHINGTON, D.C.

WISCONSIN

Anvil Pub & Grille

Location: Cedarburg, Wisconsin

“Wow. Such a find in an adorable town! Would definitely recommend and felt they were super on top of allergies! We all share a few dishes including their homemade pesto mozzarella sticks (they did have pine nuts which my daughter is NOT allergic to and are homemade) and mac and cheese (one of my daughters ordered and we all attacked it—seriously if you can eat dairy, Wisconsin knows their cheese!). She also had a steak sandwich made on their Forge bread that they make themselves and bake in their stone hearth oven—SO GOOD! We asked our server what kind of oil they used for their fries and she thought canola but was certain it was not a nut oil and said that no nuts ever went into the fryer so my daughter was able to safely eat the fries! Please note that our server told us the fries had a coating on them and they were very crispy so just flagging for anyone who avoids gluten to check!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co. – Hilldale

“My son has multiple food allergies and we frequently eat at all of the Great Dane restaurants in the Madison area. They have an allergen menu that is easy to read and updated. Allergens are listed on the order ticket when it goes into the kitchen.”

@kegs1973, who manages a milk allergy

Wiseguys Pizzeria & Pub

Location: Appleton, Wisconsin

“They have gluten-free options. They will do a dairy-free pizza with their traditional sauce and toppings of your choice. A great option for taking out as dine-in can be a little slow.”

@kegs1973, who manages a milk allergy

AUSTRIA

The Golden Harp – Irish Pub Landstraße

Location: Wein, Austria

“I’m basically here (nearly) daily and they are so great. So easy to order and find safe foods. Like most restaurants here, they have the food ingredient key. Bier is bomb too. I seriously feel so cozy here.”

@toriwong, who manages peanut, tree nut, and milk allergies

CANADA

The Old Fish Factory Restaurant

Location: Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada

“The chef was wonderful and cooked me something that wasn’t on the menu so they could be absolutely certain what I ate was safe (they weren’t sure on a few ingredients in the initial dishes I asked about). The waitstaff was wonderful communicating my allergies with the chef.”

@danielles, who manages peanut, tree nut, soy, and legume allergies

Finbar’s Irish Pub

Location: Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada

“I emailed the restaurant ahead of time to see if they could accommodate my allergies. It is a small kitchen, so I think a few things are pre-made, limiting what I could have, but I had a delicious allergen-free meal. They were all awesome in making it a wonderful dining experience.”

@aileenchicken, who manages tree nut, onion, fruit, and stevia allergies

3 Brasseurs Laval

The Centurion

Location: Corstorphine, Edinburgh, England

“This place was amazing. I went in 2017 and was allergic to egg and on a gluten-free diet at the time (in addition to my allergies to nuts/peanuts). The chef was really nice and made a gluten-free fish and chips meal for me! It was paired with peas as well. Really delicious and I was glad I could experience fish and chips while visiting the UK!”

@allergydiaries, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

FRANCE

Pub Le Milton

Location: Annecy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

“We ate here both nights we were in Annecy, France. This area is a bit tougher because seafood is everywhere, and of course is also at this restaurant. However, they have an allergy menu with the top 12 allergens which we found impressive. Our waiter spoke great English and was helpful. Our son had a pizza the first night and shared our fondue. The second night he had a plain green salad and a cheeseburger. While we had made it clear not to put sauce on it, they did anyhow. We pointed it out, they took it back and made him a new one. Overall, I felt good about this place.”

@splitsurround, who manages tree nut, egg, fish, and pea allergies

FOAM – Port

Location: Nice, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France

“There are two Foam locations—the smaller one is by the port but the larger is not too far away, and also calls itself a “co-working” space. Love the atmosphere of this place, it’s super cute! Gluten-free items are clearly marked. Spoke to the waitstaff and they’re knowledgeable. They also have two gluten-free beer options.”

@sustainablygfre, who manages wheat and celiac-gluten allergies

@leah, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

The Bloody Stream

Location: Howth, County Dublin, Ireland

“We were last here as a family 4 years ago. But my husband has been here two times since. The service is consistent with regard to food allergies. And now with their updated food allergen menu, it’s even better. Always be sure to notify staff of your allergens, even though their menu is so helpful. Great atmosphere. Traditional Irish Pub. Service can be slow but that doesn’t bother me when they’re taking such good care of our kids! Enjoy!”

@suekelly, who manages peanut, tree nut, soy, sesame, and celiac-gluten allergies

The Quay Street Kitchen

Location: Galway, County Galway, Ireland
