gluten-free In Ft. Lauderdale/key Largo

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I will be traveling to Ft. Lauderdale/Boca Raton on Thursday and then off to Key Largo for a few days. Does anyone know of any gluten-free accomodating restaurants in those areas besides Outback? Any advise is appreciated! Is there a website that might have these?

I've only eaten in Key West (recommend Mango's there) not Largo but much of what you'll find there is fresh seafood. You should be fine ordering fresh fish or shrimp as long as you tell them how to cook it. They usually offer rice or fries or potato for a side so through fries probably aren't safe. If you can make it to Deerfield Beach you can get some gluten-free pizza. I forgot the name of the place but if you google for gluten-free pizza in Deerfield Beach it should come up. Have a great trip!

Just wanted to update this thread..

We just got back from the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area...

We ate wonderful gluten-free pizza and a brownie at Pizza Fusion in Deerfield Beach. They do need a bit of notice for the gluten-free pizza crust. And they only have a few outside tables to eat at. But it was wonderful! Carleigh loved it!

We also ate at Smokey Bones in Fort Lauderdale. They were excellent! I called ahead and they told me what was safe. When we arrived, they gave us a print out with gluten-free safe items. She and I ate baby-back ribs, plain baked potoes once. The 2nd time we had steak and baked potato.

Do NOT eat at Outback Steakhouse on Federal Hwy, Ft. Laud. We had terrible experience there.

whatever you do do NOT go to

FIFTH AVENUE GRILL

4650 N. Federal Hwy., Lighthouse Point, FL , near Ft Lauderdale. This was by far the worst restaurant experience I have ever had.... and I've had some doozies. I am allergic to corn, and cannot currently eat wheat (elimination diet). They, including the manager, are totally disinterested in assessing ingredients for you, to the point of almost being rude, and what they did bring out was questionable on one dish (they had not checked the ingredients as they claimed). In addition the service itself at the restaurant itself was bad, and the food was not great.

They (they being the manager) also informed me that pretty much everything on the menu contained flour (even the items that traditionally do not... who knows, but it seemed doubtful).

When we left the entire visit was so appalling we complained to the manager (unfortunately the only one on duty, the same that "helped" us select our food). He basically said if you can't eat wheat we can't do anything for you, and complained over our requesting to find out if the dishes were safe for me to eat, in the first place.

I will definitely never go there again!
