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.com/gluten-free/index.php?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!

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
