Gluten Free Dining in Dana Point, California

We dined at Salt Creek Grill's Dana Point location with a big
family group the week of Thanksgiving. While they don't have a
specific gluten-free menu, they mark all gluten-free items with
a "g" on their regular menu. There were a fair number of
options and even more things not listed as "gluten free" that
can be adapted to be gluten free if desired. Our server and the
manager were great about accommodating our needs, including
some requests for no garlic (family allergy). Gluten free items
ordered included their housemade potato chips with sea salt,
thyme, and gorgonzola (passed around the table as an
appetizer), the baby back ribs (delish!), and the filet mignon
(one of the items not specifically listed as gluten-free but only
because of the side dish, which they happily let us replace with
one of their many other gluten-free side dish options). In
general, the steaks, burgers and possibly some other items like
fish can be made gluten-free with minimal adjustment (hold the
bun, substitute a side dish, forego the sauce, etc.). All in all, it
was a great experience, and I'd highly recommend this
restaurant. They have two other locations in California and two
in New Jersey as well. You can view their gluten-free menu
