Share This Post

Traveling with a gluten allergy can be stressful. Cross-contamination can definitely put a damper on your vacation, but also feeling like you have nowhere to eat out can too. We’ve put together a list of some gluten-free establishments that are celiac-safe and completely delicious!

Stack’s Pancakes & More

– Breakfast
– Brunch
– Lunch

Stack’s Pancakes & More is a great mid-island spot for—you guessed it—pancakes! You won’t find more delicious gluten-free pancakes, and you’ll find that there’s a good selection of other dishes that are gluten-free as well. The staff takes every precaution against cross-contamination, and your pancakes will always come in a to-go container just to be on the safe side.

Skillets Café & Grill

– Breakfast
– Lunch
– Dinner

Located on the south end of the island, and a walk away from Coligny Beach, Skillets Café and Grill has a substantial menu that’s very well labeled. You’ll be able to see which menu items can be made gluten-free, as well as which dishes are vegan, local, or a Skillets Specialty.

Hilton Head Diner

– Breakfast
– Lunch
– Dinner

This iconic island establishment doesn’t offer a separate gluten-free menu but does offer substitutes for dishes that include bread, pasta, pancakes, and more. You should still talk to either the manager, chef, or server.

The Old Oyster Factory

– Lunch
– Dinner
– Reservations Available

A great place to go for delicious seafood and beautiful views of the inland waterways, the staff is very knowledgeable and will point you to the safest, gluten-free options on the menu. The good news is, these options won’t feel like you’re substituting anything, as both the main and dessert options have raving reviews!

Catch 22

– Dinner
– Upscale
– Reservations Available

If you’re looking to have a nice dinner out, Catch 22 is your best option. Treat yourself to dinner with a great atmosphere and dishes made from fresh ingredients and with the utmost care, as the staff will take your gluten-free requests very seriously. The menu is marked, but you should still alert the staff of your allergy so every precaution can be made.

Slapfish

– Lunch
– Dinner
– Quick Service

For a delicious seafood option that’s casual and affordable, Slapfish offers a bunch of gluten-free options. If you’ve never eaten here before, try ordering in-store so that the staff can ensure you completely understand the menu. The bowls are a big hit!

Poseidon

– Lunch
– Dinner
– Reservations Available

Poseidon is known to have a very large menu, but did you know that there are entirely separate dinner and lunch menus that are completely gluten-free? You’ll feel very confident when ordering. Poseidon is a fun spot that’s great for large groups and offers live entertainment.

If you’re craving pizza, Mellow Mushroom will be the place to go for gluten-free pizza.

Well-versed in ensuring that there will be no cross-contamination, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious pizza pie with a wide variety of toppings to choose from.

Frozen Moo

For those with a sweet tooth, choose from a wide variety of gluten-free ice cream flavors. If the staff member knows you have an allergy, they will be able to use a new scoop or wash the one they have to ensure there is no cross-contamination. You will have to ask for a cup!

G-Free Spot

This is a great way to load up on gluten-free pastries to enjoy for breakfast throughout your time on the island. If you are celebrating a birthday, wedding, or any other special occasion, you can order a specialty cake ahead of your trip. This bakery also has a catalog of treats to ship off island!
