Restaurants In Cape Cod, Ma?

We're going on vacation for a few days to Cape Cod - it will be my first time since going gluten-free. We'll be in Provincetown, Truro, and Hyannis. Can anyone make any recommendations? I read a bad review about a place called Tiny's, and a good review of the Lobster Pot. (I remember the LP from my pre-Gluten-free days, yum!) I'm hoping there are more options than that!

here you go! I think she charges a tiny fee for the list.

Underground Cape Cod

http://www.undergroundcapecod.com/2009/06/gluten-free-on-cape-cod.html

She will even talk with you via email.

She has done extensive work compiling the list and blogging about it after she eats in these places.

I plan on using it myself when I visit family and friends on the Cape this summer.

I had many a good lobster and martini in the LP pre-Dx myself!

Try the Coonamessett Inn in Falmouth. I was there once about two years ago, the restaurant manager was gluten free and made me a sundae from his private stash of gluten-free brownies. It was also, by far, the best filet mignon I've ever had. At the time, I'd found it because someone left a review on yelp or one of those websites. Now, they have a whole gluten free menu. Granted, it was two years ago, but the fact that they've evolved enough to have a menu is a good sign that they're still doing a good job with it. They have steamed spring rolls on the menu now! Gee, wish I lived closer than four hours away....

Fair warning= the Inn is a reservations kind of place on the weekend, woudn't want you to be dissapointed and get turned away cuz it's too busy! That's really only during tourst season, and I have no idea when that starts, just wanted to let you know.

I am a summer regular on the Cape. I highly recommend the Black Cat in Hyannis. I believe it is on Ocean Street right by the ferries. I have eaten there regularly the past 2 summers. The chef is very well-trained in cross-contamination. I never had an issue. On the weekends, they have great entertainment.

Also, in Falmouth, there is a little place around the corner from the Coonamesset Inn that I think is the best. It's an old home where the locals go, yet THEY HAVE A GLUTEN FREE MENU, and they have regular entertainment. It is called the Nimrod Inn. I am a regular there in the summer - it is very quaint, inviting, and classy. Hope these ideas help.

I have eaten here also, in the past year, and the food was amazing. Their gluten-free menu is excellent and they bring you out warm gluten-free rolls too! It is not a cheap eats place and reservations are strongly recommended in summer but the food was so good, I didn't care how much it costs. I felt great after eating there and I am very, very sensitive. Anyone want to have a party, I am willing to drive the 2 hours down there. ;)

Let's keep the Cape recommendations going! With a little luck, we'll be back next year. I started a new thread in the Restaurant section as a holiday wrap-up, so be sure to check it out.

We're heading to the Cape in a week and I was reading about an entirely gluten-free restaurant in S. Yarmouth (not far from Hyannis) called Igdy's. The reviews are good and the menu looks tasty. Will be nice not to worry about cross-contact...

Cathleen, I tried to Google the restaurant you referenced, and cannot find it. Can you tell me the address or anything else about the restaurant?

I know this is an old topic but the Cape Cod season is going to start again soon.  On the first page of this thread my gluten-free Cape Cod list was mentioned and I really appreciate it.  I do charge $3. for it and I was sorry to have to start charging at all but it's time consuming and I do a lot of work to keep it up.  I email restaurants all the time, I eat at them (a fun part of this "job"), I've worked with places to help them start a gluten-free menu and after all that I update the list, usually monthly.   

 

I try to keep the list as current as possible (I just sent out 20 gluten-free inquires to newer restaurants).  It's 18 pages and counting now!  I'm always happy to discuss various restaurants via email (or here) and I'm more then happy to help with travel plans or ideas of things to do while you are here.

 

Again, thanks for the mention!

I second this place!  I ate there about 3-4 years ago and would love to take a ride just to have a meal here again.  The Cape is so crowded in the summer, I tend to like to go off season. 

They had an amazing gluten-free menu, served hot rolls while everyone else got their bread and the meal was one of the best I have had, gluten-free, in a restaurant, and I am a total food snob.  Snob in the sense that I will eat just about everything but insist on it being cooked the right way.  I had the swordfish and it was delicious and moist.  In fact.......http://www.capecodrestaurants.org/coonamessett/menus  I just figured I would link the menu for you and now my mouth is watering from just reading it!  Go there!  :D

 

Susan.....I hope you have this one on your list because it's well worth the prices they charge.  Thank you for your work.....it sounds like fun work too!

I've gotten requests for Cape Cod restaurants myself as I live just an hour and a half away so I'll steer them in your direction.

I used to live on the Cape.  Tourist season starts around March/April and continues until about October.

Our real season is July 4 - Labor Day.  We certainly do have people coming on weekends now but there is no back up at the bridges and the roads are still traffic free.  After Labor Day you don't really need reservations anywhere, we do have a nice fall season but its not crowded (meaning no traffic back ups).

 

I probably won't go on a weekend during the season, I'll do a Tuesday or Wednesday.  But thanks for the heads up it's always good to know!

Hi Susan!

I am grateful to you for your list.

I had 3 great meals at the Naked Oyster last fall because you recommended it on your list.

the owner came out to chat with me and then, I posted on Find Me Gluten Free and Trip Advisor

so other Gee Freers can dine there too.

EXCELLENT food.

Thanks for all you do!!!!!!

I just had dinner there myself a couple of weeks ago.  They do a good job.  I feel really lucky that we have all sorts of gluten-free choices ont he Cape.  I was in NYC last week and had some great dinners there but it required a lot of research to come up with the right places.  I guess because the Cape is smaller it's easier but I really do feel we have a lot of restaurant owners and chefs that are embracing what the diner wants.  Many are working with us gluten-free folks and allergy issues too (my daughter is both gluten-free and has a life threatening peanut allergy).

    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
