Thanks for the great tips!! We've decided to put it off for the fall color tour~maybe the first weekend in October. And leave the dog at home with the dogsitter. My little girl has her heart set on riding her bike on the island. I like your idea to have the bunless hamburger and will definitely try the fudge
OMG that is so funny cause I was searching for Celiac and Mackinac because I will be staying on the island Mon Oct 5-6.
There is this fall color tour deal for the Island House Hotel, on the island, and since my husband has never been we thought why not? I however am happy that I can at least have some fudge...

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms
Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance
2001-had stroke because of medications I was given
June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months
June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)
May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Just to update and old thread. Mackinac Island is definitely a gluten free friendly place. 21 Speed Grille even had a sign in the window. I was very happy with my lunch and enjoyed a hot sandwich on a gluten free bun!
Murray's is now my favorite fudge from the island. It is "the creamiest" texture. (Use the same common sense as ice cream choices to avoid obvious gluten.)
It was just a quick day trip for me this year. I can't wait to go back!
I forgot to mention there is a new place in St. Ignace (I think it is called the Garden) that will have gluten free breads and vegan foods. The same owner as Java Joe's and a Mexican place too. Nice guy (some might even describe him as a hippie). I did not get to eat there, as it is still not open just yet. We did eat a safe breakfast at Java Joe's.
If you go to Mackinac Island... Go stay for 1/2 price hotel/motels in St. Ignace. Mackinaw City is really a tourist trap.

Mommida or anyone else who has been there recently -
Did it look like there was an intersection of vegetarian and gluten free dishes on the gluten-free menus at Mackinac Island? We are planning a trip to Charlevoix and wanting to do a day trip to Mackinac Island, but it will make me sad if there's nothing I can eat. We've found a couple of places with gluten-free vegan options in Charlevoix, but I'm not able to find any actual gluten-free menus or even regular menus with gluten-free things marked for the places on Mackinac Island that are listed on my various gluten-free apps.

To be on the safe side go to the new location that is offering gluten free and vegan in St. Ignace and see if they will pack you a picnic lunch. (I hate being in a panic over something to eat.)
I will try and check a few more resources to see if I can find out more.

I just got back from Mackinac Island , there are a couple places that say "Gluten free" most restaurants are very nice and try to be accommodating We stayed in Mackinaw City, there is a great lil pizza place that has Gluten free Pizza they were very nice!! They really try hard to be accommodating I don't remember the name of the place but it had "Gluten Free Pizza" sign in the window , I had no problem eating on the island or In MAc City. it was 63 there last week!! So be warned it will be chilly in the fall!! Altho they are very good at having sweatshirts and stuff for great prices!!

We are good with fall weather and chilly I am sick of hot here in Louisville!
I found out about that restaurant, mommida -- I'm just hoping since they says it's seasonal that it's still open when we are there. I love the idea of vegan soup in a gluten-free bread bowl!
I also hate being in a panic over something to eat. I'm planning to pack a few GoPicnic meals and plenty of protein shakes/bars just in case there isn't anything of substance for me when we are out.

Just got back from staying on Mackinac Island!
Sadly the 21 speed grill is now a new restaurant, and we didn't try eating there. We went to Twist -N- Sprout and had gluten free free (some of the choices were vegan, dairy free, and the gluten free AND vegan) with the most excellent frozen yogurt I think I have ever had. the side of my gluten free vegan roll included beet chips (and some other veggies I can't remember right now) AMAZING soo much better than plain old potato chips. ~ did I mention they were viggies, healthy good for you veggies. The owner was so kind and sweet. I did get to sample some of the vegan and gluten free chili. very good with a nice spice and "heat".
So I truly LOVE this place, and it is a must for gluten free peeps! Shout out to Allen! Loved meeting you and wish you the best!
The SeaBiscuit is also awesome gluten free dining! Heaped high sandwiches on gluten free buns. Ate here twice in a row and had the same sandwich again! ( I did try and switch it up by ordering a salad (Michigan chopped Cherry Cobb YUM to split up for half the Triple crown sandwich ~ but my daughter backed out on the deal and kept the whole sandwich and I was left my whole salad. Excellent meals, great service, and really nice ambience! I really love the way they do bacon there. crispy and sweet. YUM

We also packed some Go Picnic for snacking on the island. (When you bike up some of those hills, it would not be sane to ride back down into the city to eat!) There are many picnic tables along any trails to take a break at.
