Ocean City Nj And Harrah's In Atlantic City

Recommended Posts

DD3 has celiac, we're staying with my family at Harrah's (Atlantic City, NJ) for two nights next week, and we'll be spending most of our time at the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. I spoke with one of the chefs at Harrah's, they seem to be very knowledgeable and accomodating, so I plan to eat there for several meals. Just wondering if anyone has had any expences at Harrah's or in Ocean City? I figure I'll just need to take food in coolers for Ocean City...thanks!

We had a good experience at Harrah's in their Reflections Cafe. I called a few days ahead of time and spoke with the chef on duty (Chef James), who ordered a few gluten free specialty items for my DD (pasta, waffles). Call several days to a week ahead so they have enough time to order what you'd like. Chef James said to only order your meal with the chef, not with the server....good thing because the one waitress tried to tell me how great their mini (gluten) pancakes were for kids. Anyway, I asked for the chef each time we sat down, ordered with the chef (and asked questions to make sure I felt comfortable)...the chef then prepared DD's food and served it to my DD himself, which made me feel more comfortable about the risk of cc. None of their desserts are gluten free, but there is a food court next door with Ben & Jerry's ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, and maybe more, are gluten-free).

As for Ocean City's boardwalk, not really an meal options. DD did taste some Kohr Brother's frozen custard...their website says their vanilla is gluten-free, but recommends it in a cup without toppings due to the risk of cc.

We've been going to Ocean City for a lot of years. Try the Island Grill. I think it's on 1st and Atlantic, a little north of the boardwalk. It's a small, privately run restaurant. The staff is really helpful and I've never had a problem getting a good gluten free meal there. Another plus - they take reservations. There really is nothing safe on the boardwalk, except for Kohr. Bros. frozen custard.

Bally's eatery called six( spelled some odd way I do not remember) has portabella mushroom steaks that are gluten-free and out of this world. They serve them with rice but they are pretty flexible if you tell them that you have food allergies.

but if you are still in the angry stage you may have problems watching others with their bread baskets.

One more mile.
