Savannah Restaurants with Gluten-Free Options

You’ve come to Savannah to see the sites, soak in the history and eat like a king. Fortunately, your agenda doesn’t have to change just because you’re on a gluten-free diet. Many of the city’s best restaurants have gluten-free menus or menu items.

Vic’s on the River, an outstanding eatery on River Street, has a gluten-free menu that’s just as long–and mouthwatering–as its regular menu. Other fine restaurants with menus created exclusively for those eating gluten free include Historic District favorites the Chart House and the Olde Pink House.

If you have a hankering for down-home Southern cooking, you may want to consider stopping by The Lady & Sons, which offers a number of gluten-free choices including sautéed local black grouper and shrimp and grits.

Those craving carbs will appreciate the gluten-free pasta at Leoci’s Trattoria, an upscale Italian eatery, and the gluten-free pizza crust at Your Pie, a regional chain that features customizable, 10-inch pizzas.

The Blue Turtle Bistro and The 5 Spot, two Midtown restaurants, have several dishes on their respective menus labeled gluten free. Other Savannah eateries offering gluten-free options include Papillote, the Sentient Bean and Foxy Loxy Print Gallery and Café.

All of the restaurants mentioned here are great choices for gluten-free food; however, it’s always a good idea to call ahead and confirm menu options and to inquire about cross-contamination if gluten intolerance is severe.
