Primo
2605 Jackson St.
Oshkosh, WI 54901
(920) 230-2605


They don't have a specific gluten-free menu at this point in time, but suspect one might be coming. There are many options available, you need to ask your server. The server we had was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She answered my questions about food, preparation and cross contamination.

Their food is made fresh to order.

Lunch: Any sandwiches can be had substituting GF bread. Any of the pasta sauces are GF except for the meatballs (bread crumbs). They do have gluten-free pasta available (cooked in fresh water, not the normal pasta water).

They have GF desserts!

Will return to Primo's based on my
first experience - read more about it.

Appleton


Carmella's Italian Bistro
716 N. Casaloma Drive
Appleton, WI 54913
(920) 882-4044

Carmella's has become one of our favorite places. After speaking with several servers, the kitchen staff understands cross contamination and takes proper precautions to minimize/prevent it. One of the servers [I believe her name is Stephanie, is gluten-free herself].

Carmella's wait staff generally asks, but make sure you tell them you are gluten-free for medical reasons. This is important to do at every restaurant because often times they will prepare dishes differently if you are a "gluten avoider".



Olive Garden

Sangria's Mexican Grill

Phone: (920) 955-3755

Shirley, the owner of Sangria's was one of the restaurants that presented at Fox Valley Celiac's Fox Valley Gluten-Free Friendly Restaurants meeting March 2012.

Recently I received an email from Shirley announcing their new Green Bay location.

We have over 300 combinations of Mexican dinners - ALL 100% GLUTEN-FREE! Our downtown Appleton location has a faithful following of members from Appleton Celiac Support Groups, and they would tell you how much they love coming here. You will see that we offer 10 different side dishes and 8 different sauces, which are all gluten-free. Most entrees can be prepared using corn tortillas, for optimum variety when dining out.

In addition, we have a designated fryer where we fry all of our chips so every guest can enjoy them. We also have a designated grill, separate saute pans, and separate utensils for preparing any dish for any type of food allergy. We have taken many precautions to ensure that people with food allergies can enjoy our awesome menu with confidence.

Outback Steakhouse
4287 W. College Avenue
Grand Chute, WI 54914
(920) 730-4329


Outback's Gluten-free Menu in PDF format

Outback Steakhouse is owned by
OSI Restaurant Partners. Most, if not all of the OSI restaurants have gluten-free menus. Sadly, there's not many of their restaurants are not located near Ripon.

Each Outback is independently owned, so you may find variable levels of Celiac/Gluten-free knowledge at each Outback. Each location is required to have training in handling allergen orders, however some wait-staff is better than others. Outback is in enrolled in
The Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program. GFCO builds training manuals, reviews menus, etc in order to make dining out as safe as possible*.

The Grand Chute location is generally quite knowledgeable about their GF offerings.



Stone Cellar Brewpub
1275 N. Casaloma
Appleton, WI 54913
(920) 954-8005

Oct 14th, 2012 - We had a chance to dine at Stone Cellar Brewpub. Our waiter was well informed. When a GF order comes in they - change gloves - clean and sanitize the prep areas, etc. They know that their fries are not GF due to contaminated oil. They do have homemade chips that are fried first in clean oil [before anything else is fried].

Wautoma


The Silvercryst
W7015 Highway 21 East
Wautoma, WI 54982
1.800.358.9663


Notice: We dined here in mid October 2009. We found out that LeeAnn is not currently working there. She was the go-to person for their GF knowledge. Now that she is not working there, I'm not sure of the knowledge level of the remaining staff.

Silvercryst does have a gluten-free menu, you just ask for it when you get seated. LeeAnn, one of the waitresses has worked with the owners, kitchen & wait-staff do develop their GF menu and to be mindful of cross contamination issues. LeeAnn's husband has Celiac Disease and is very knowledgeable. You can request her as your waitress.

Bunky's Cafe

608-204-7004


Bunky's have extensive GF options. There are only 2 or 3 menu items that can not be made GF. In April 2009, they moved to a new location that allows them to have a GF kitchen!




Madison has a lot of gluten-free friendly restaurants. Check out Madison Area Gluten Intolerance Chapter's Restaurant Page.

De Pere


Graystone Ale House
3711 Monroe Road
De Pere, WI 54115
920-347-2727

A recent
article in the Oshkosh Northwestern says the owners of The Bar are branching out into a more "family-friendly" environment. [The Bar is known to be very GF friendly].

“We’re definitely a little more family-friendly, on a different level than how The Bar operates,” Miller said. “They’re more casual, and probably demographically-speaking, skew younger – you know, a Friday night targeted to happy hour. And though The Bar serves a lot of food, it’s not to the extent that we do here. We offer items that you’re not going to see there, say Saturday’s prime rib, our broasted chicken everyday. Our breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday have also become really popular.”


...though most notable is Graystone’s dedication to offering most items as gluten-free.“The demand has been there,” Miller said. “It’s something we’ve really worked hard on, to make the menu accessible to everyone who wants to eat here, to educate our staff about it.”


Check out their
full menu with GF options designated. Burgers and sandwiches will cost 1.99 more for GF bread/bun.

Milwaukee Area


Milwaukee has a lot of great GF dining options. Sadly, I've only had a chance to visit a few of them as of this update (Saz's, Stack'd Burger, Jalapeno Loco - Mequon).

Andi (from Manitowoc County Celiac Support Group (CDF Branch)) sent me a Milwaukee Journal/Sentinal article about GF dining. It contains 32 places that have GF menus or are GF friendly! Click here to read the article.

I am lucky enough to have a GF friend (Sarah) that lives in Milwaukee and has blogged extensively about her GF dining adventures. Visit

Get the Guac! They will make you fresh GF tortillas (fried in clean oil).

Be aware, the guac normally comes in a fried tortilla bowl - make sure they put it on a plate.

March 3rd, 2012

We had lunch with our friend Sarah [
Celiac in the City] and her husband Mark. Great pick Sarah! It was Peg's birthday lunch.

After we got seated, we told the server two required gluten-free meals and she said the Chef will stop by our table and discuss our options. YES!

Options, options everywhere! Chef Michael said they are a "from scratch kitchen" and would be able make almost any item on their menu gluten-free with a few exceptions [meatballs was one of the exceptions due to bread crumbs].

I asked about certain pasta cooking procedures - did they use fresh water for cooking the pasta? Yes, we don't use the same gluten pasta water for gluten-free pasta. These guys have a clue...

The meals were great! We will definitely go back!

The server was on the ball. Mark [not gluten-free] ordered a GF meal so his wife could try it. For dessert he ordered something glutenous. She stated that dessert was not gluten-free. He said that's fine. She asked "So, you don't have an allergy?" Mark and Sarah both responded "No".

No one was going to get sick on her watch!

Our chefs are taking every precaution to prepare our Gluten Free menu items so that we minimize cross contact, but our kitchen is not entirely free of products that do contain gluten, so we ask that you follow your own guidelines in ordering.

All Gluten Free menu items are prepared separately, not in combination with foods containing gluten.

I have not investigated a Nick-N-Willy's yet, so I do not know what other means they use to protect against cross contamination.
