:D The family is planning to be in Charleston, SC this weekend (Feb. 9) and we'd love to find a celiac friendly restaurant. Our kids are 6 (celiac disease) and 5 years old. We'll be in the Battery area.

Thanks for any info!!

I have had great luck at all of the medium to high end restaurants in Charleston that I have gone to. . . no gluten free menus but all the chefs easily accomodated my needs. Recently had a phenomenal meal and service experience at McCrady's.

I realize this post comes late for the original poster but hopefully will be helpful for others with children. I'd give a whole 'nother list to someone without kids. All of the upscale restaurants are real good at adapting meals for gluten free eating. (My favorites include La Fourchette, the Charleston Grill, Cypress, Tristans and Blossoms.)

Moe's is a chain mexican restaurant on King St. near Marion Square, very kid friendly with free kids night on Tuesdays I think.

Santi's is a mexican restaurant on East Bay/Morrison Dr. about a mile north of the Ravanel bridge.

In Mt. Pleasant there's a Moe's across from the Whole Foods on Houston Northcut. There's another tex/mex restaurant that's kid friendly called Uno Mas on highway 17 N that is really good. It's owned by the people who run the Mustard Seed restaurants in Mt Pleasant and James Island which are great for a more upscale but still casual family meal.

Sticky Fingers BBQ restaurant on Meeting St downtown is very kid friendly and most of their sauces are gluten free, but for BBQ it's best to head to West Ashley and go to Home Team BBQ on Hwy 61.

The Boathouse seafood restaurant on East Bay downtown is another good option for an upscale meal with kids as is Rue De Jean (french bistro fare) on John St. downtown.

Places I'd avoid for gluten free dining include Hyman's seafood, Jestine's, Hominy Grill, and the Wreck as they have a lot of fried foods and there's a limited selection, although Hyman's will grill or broil your meal I believe. The first three are major tourist traps as well.

I am staying outside of Charleston, SC this week, and I just wanted to share an experience I had. I saw above that Moe's was recommended. I checked them out online and found an allergen chart that looked like it listed all of the chips and tortillas (even the corn ones), as well as the chicken and beef as containing gluten. So I called (the N. Charleston one, not the Marion Square one previously mentioned) to find out more, and I spoke with one of the managers. He didn't seem like he had ever heard the word gluten before, and he told me that he was sorry, but he "didn't know anything about any allergens." He was surprised to hear that they even had an allergen chart online. He pretty much told me he couldn't help me at all, so I just said I would find somewhere else to eat.

I had already decided against Moe's, but I did call their corporate customer service number from the website anyway. The woman I talked to there was very kind and much more knowledgeable. However, she did inform me that indeed ALL of their corn chips and tortillas contain gluten, as they are fried at the restaurant in common fryers with gluten-containing items, and that the chicken and beef have gluten in their marinades. So, it looks like really the only thing you could get there would be beans and rice, although after my conversation with the manager at the particular restaurant that I called, I don't think I would trust them even for that.

I did, however, have an absolutely wonderful experience with Jim N' Nick's Bar-B-Q. I talked about it in a separate post here: http://www.celiac.co...showtopic=58748

Hope this helps someone!

I have heard wonderful things about Mustard Seed (also mentioned above), and I plan to try there tonight. I will post my experience!
