Hello all,

I'm going on vacation with my parents to Hilton Head, SC starting Labor Day weekend. We will be spending about 2 weeks there. I'm looking for safe restaurants to eat at and stores which I can by gluten free. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

There is a neat application for Android phones, called find me gluten free.

There is an Outback Steak House, with a gluten free menu. Carrabba's but I haave never been to one.

You may want to start looking and calling places now if hilton head was hit by the hurricane. If there was a lot of damage in that area some restaurants might still be closed due to damage/power loss. In CT where I am it was only a tropical storm and they are estimating that people will still not have power until Saturday and included in that are a lot of businesses.

Hey Helen,

Our family vacationed in Hilton Head last month. Will post a list of restaurants for you tomorrow.

In regards to stores that carry gluten free items-We traveled by car, so I carried many of my own items from home because this was our first trip there since going gluten free. There is a Fresh Market, but I don't know what breads, ect. that they might carry. However, I shopped there and Publix for fruits, veggies, deli meat (Publix carries Hormel Natural Choices, which is gluten free), ect. I'll post the rest tomorrow.

Have a great trip,

Debbie

Here is the list of Restaurants in Hilton Head that either have a gluten free menu or have gluten free options. I'm not sure who you will be traveling with (adults, children), but I found that most all of the nicer restaurants with "real" chefs know and can accomodate a gluten free diner, but always check ahead.

Here are the restaurants that we ate at successfully: Big Bamboo Cafe (food not great, however ask for Natalie who works at the bar. She has Celiac and has a wealth of info. She probably can help you with where to shop. You might want to e-mail her ahead of time at bigbamboocafe@gmail.com); The Smokehouse(a BBQ place. Both red BBQ sauces are gluten free, but the Carolina mustard sauce is NOT. Fries are NOT gluten free. I believe most all the meats and veggies are safe. You can e-mail Ed at ed@smokehousehhi.com); Skull Creek Boathouse (very good. We ate there twice. Go early. It gets packed. Website www.skullcreekboathouse.com-you can contact them through their site); Michael Anthony's (Excellent. One of the best restaurants on the island. Let them know about your needs when you make reservations); Robert Irvine's Eat! (also excellent. When you make reservations, also let them know about your need for gluten free options); Mellow Mushroom (I hated the gluten free pizza, but I read where many like it!)Pino Gelato-so good! They have an allery chart in store. Ask them to change gloves, and when I went, due to possible CC, they used a clean scoop and went to the back to get mine out of a new container.

Here are other restaurants that either have gluten free menus or said that they could easily accomodate a gluten free diner: Wise Guys (a tapas restaurant with a gluten free menu. Suppose to be really good); Red Fish (contact Jeff at redfishgenmgr@aol.com. My husband and I ate there several years ago before going gluten free and it was really good. will probably need to make reservations); The Sage Room (has a gluten free menu. Go to their website and e-mail them and they will send you the menu); British Pub said that they are use to preparing gluten free options, but you will need to carry your own salad dsg. and cocktail sauce. When you make reservations, let them know about your needs. Here is the contact info for them-ashtonhayes@hotmail.com);Roastfish & Cornbread (really good reviews. Website www.roastfishandcornbread.com); One Hot Mama's (gluten-free items listed on menu. Check on their webite to print); The Black Marlin (really don't know much about them); Sigler's Rotisserie & Seafood (e-mail-siglers@hargray.com. the owner is suppose to be familiar with preparing gluten free options, and the ratings were really good); Frankie Bones; Marley's (suppose to be a good place for gluten-free diners to eat; however, we've eaten there many times in the past. Used to be pretty good, but last year I wasn't pleased at all with the food[i wasn't gluten-free then]. Hopefully it's gotten better. You could read reviews online to see). Hope this helps. Also, in Bluffton there is a Five Guys Burger and Fries. If you are not familiar with them, they have great burgers and fries. Let them know about your "allergy", and they will change gloves. Everything is gluten-free but the bun! Also, there is a Monster Pizza in Bluffton which is suppose to have a gluten free pizza crust.

One more thing. My husband and I went several years ago (without children) and we dined at a wonderful Restaurant called Sunset Grill. I'm sure that they would be able to accomodate. If you're interested, just contact them through their website. If you decide to go, make sure you are there at sunset. The veiws are beautiful.Have a wonderful trip!
