Another place to add to the list:
Jutamas Thai Restaurant
910 Timothy Ln
(601) 584-8583

I ate there a couple of weeks ago. The server told me they could do anything on the menu gluten free! They have a separate gluten-free stir-fry sauce. I went with a safe option, regardless: the green curry. It was delicious, well-priced, and I didn't feel sick at all anytime afterward. I also ate the mango sticky rice dessert, which was beautifully presented.

Hi, Tim -
So glad that your son's diagnosis has enabled him to stay out of the hospital! I have only lived here for three years, but I can tell a difference in the number of gluten-free products Hattiesburg is stocking. Hope you will post if you have had some good gluten-free dining experiences here in town, too!

I live in Hattiesburg and have a son with Celiac Disease. He has had ITP most of his life and since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease over a year ago and going gluten free as a family, he has not been in the hospital ( we used to go at least once a month) and symptoms have gotten so much better.

Ack! I am just now seeing this! I thought I had logged in fairly recently, but that does not seem to be the case! Thank you for posting this. How was that pizza? Thank you so much.

Hey! I was checking for a support group in the city and stumbled across this post. So, here's the good news:

The Fresh Food Company in the Thad Cochran Center at USM offers Gluten Free pizza and pasta. MOST of the chefs are well informed, but one or two are still figuring it out. The pasta has been absolutely fantastic and I get to try my first pizza today. I'll let you know how it is. Don't pay any attention to their daily menus; you have to ask for Gluten Free stuff and it's rarely the same as what they're serving. That said, the staff will readily ask a chef if they are uncertain and have no problem changing gloves or preparing special food for you. These are some good people. Be wary of anything prepared with butter, such as eggs or grits. One of the chefs here seemed to think that the butter substitute they regularly use is not Gluten Free (wtf, gluten in butter?) and mentioned that it is not used in any specifically Gluten Free dishes.

I'm including the website for anyone curious. They've been e-mail friendly so far.

Ate again at Crescent City Grill last night and had another knowledgeable server. I had the shrimp and grits and it was divine! The ranch salad dressing was good too. They are pretty good at handling the diet.
I have eaten at The Depot downtown for lunch. They willlingly checked lots of things. I had the tomato basil soup -- my Celiac sister has had the salad with the goat cheese -- can't remember the name. This is a fun, friendly place to eat.
