Restaurants In Cape Cod, Ma?
0

25 posts in this topic

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).
