Newly opened facility in Solvang can accommodate gluten-free requests Oct 21, 2010
reviewer: Barbslb from Erie, Pa.

This restaurant was opened one week to the day when we ate there. There was an extensive menu of main dish salads to choose from. Sandwiches and pizzas all had gluten in them. Two salads could be made gluten free by avoiding the croutons on one and changing the dressing on the other. My salad was very good. The manager supervised the making of it himself. It was huge with enough left for lunch the next day. My meal was brought out as soon as it was finished to avoid any chance of cross contamination.

Gluten Free Dining along the Columbia River Gorge Oct 21, 2010
reviewer: Barbslb from , Erie, Pennsylvania

This restaurant overlooks the Columbia River, and there is outside seating if you wish to use it. Our waitress was knowledgeable about gluten free, and the chef and kitchen staff was up to date on cross contamination. I had Cinnamon Apple Stuffed Pork Loin and it was really good. The sides were Garlic Mashed Potatoes and steamed local vegetables. For dessert, there was creme brulee. This is another one not to be missed if you're traveling along the Columbia River Gorge.

Gluten free dining in Bend, Oregon Oct 21, 2010
reviewer: Barbslb from Erie, Pa.

Carino's has a gluten free menu. The waitress was well versed on the gluten free menu. I ordered grilled salmon and, when I questioned if it could be prepared in a clean pan instead, the waitress went to check with Cristina, the manager. She came to the table and told me that they pre-grill the salmon earlier in the day but that she had taken a fresh one out of the freezer and it would take a bit longer to prepare if I didn't mind waiting. She also asked some questions about celiac and the diet and ingredients. I mentioned Shelly Case's gluten free diet book and she wrote it down and was going to purchase it. The salmon was the best I've ever had. I had to ask some questions but I'm still giving it 5 palms because their effort was outstanding.

Restaurant in Klamath Falls, Oregon with gluten-free options Oct 21, 2010
reviewer: Barbslb

This is a bar and grill with a gluten free menu. Our waitress knew all about celiac disease and gluten free as her nephew was diagnosed recently. I questioned the french fries and was told they would be cooked in a clean pan with a new bottle of oil. They were amazing. Crisp and brown on the outside and soft on the inside. My husband's fries from the standard fryer were barely brown. The salmon was just salmon but the fries made up for that! The cook who did my fries came out to see if they were done to suit me. The staff is amazing.

Cafe and restaurant with some gluten-free options in Astoria, Oregon Oct 21, 2010
reviewer: Barbslb from ,Erie, Pa.

This place has gluten free baked goods on Friday only. There is no gf menu but the staff is used to serving gluten free diners and know what is in the food down to the last ingredient. We had lunch and I had a choice of several salad entrees. The food was delicious. We were there on a Wednesday so I didn't have a chance to try the baked goods. I went over the basics of cross contamination and they were aware of all of it.
