I was there once many years ago and remember getting some nachos at Foxwoods. We could not get in to any of the restaurants because of a 2 hour wait and I was starved. There was a little stand selling foods by some place with a lot of seats for betting. I can't remember if it was for horse racing or sports or what. I'm not sure that the restaurants there would have gluten free stuff. If I recall, they had a limited menu. There was a BBQ place with a set meal, no choices, and an Italian place. I do think they may have added some things since though.

I have never been to Mohegun, just Foxwoods, but I went in March (first time since I went gluten-free) and emailed/called ahead to get some ideas, it is limited though unless you want to take some risks, they were not very helpful in suggesting something.

It was someone's 40th bday in the group so we wanted to eat somewhere nice anyways and I had spoken with the people at Craftsteak which was able to do a great steak dinner and also have a dedicated friolator for their handcut fries, so that was great, only problem is it is ULTRA ULTRA expensive, like we paid $700 for 6 people, we had no clue it was that expensive, so it really isn't an option unless you want to dish out some $$. There were a couple dishes in the $20 range I think, possibly a flank steak or something for like $30, but I will say it was excellent and they were very knowledgeable and careful etc. despite the $$

So that was my experience for dinner, I also had spoken to the head chef of the place via email and he said he would arrange for there to be a clean pan to make an omlette for me at Cafe Veranda the next morning, but when I got there no one knew anything and the waitress finally arranged for a pan to be cleaned and for an omlette to be "carefully" prepared for me, I explained what I could to them and made sure to have her have the cook to put on new gloves or what not, I didn't get sick, but I was not happy with how that experience turned out considering I was assured that I would be accomodated. Anyways, that was my experience, I'm sure you can find something safe at one of the steakhouses, but none of them as far as I know have dedicated gluten-free menus etc. so you'll have to give the whole Celiac scpheel to the server or what not. Maybe Mohegun has better restaurants to eat at.

I've had several GREAT safe dinners at Cedar's Steakhouse at Foxwoods. They understand gluten-free and are very accommodating. It's not cheap- about $20 per entree but well worth it.

I go once a year with my dad and sister and the last time I was there we stayed in Pequot Towers and I even got an omelette from room service and they too understood gluten-free!
