Rehoboth Beach Gluten Free Restaurant Roundup


Rehoboth Beach, DE is a perfect beach getaway from Washington, DC.  It’s a three hour drive with only a slightly nerve wracking drive over a very tall bridge. We take the off the beaten path roads to keep us moving instead of stuck in traffic on the main highway. This time however, we did get a little delayed by a freight train and by a convoy of motorcycles with a police escort.  I’m guessing they were on a rally of some sort and planned ahead for the escort on a busy saturday.  That’s a sweet deal.

To dine out while at the beach, I have to do my homework.  It’s just like every other trip.  The more I google and figure out meals ahead of time, the better experience I’ll have eating gluten free at the beach.   I’ve pulled together a Rehoboth Beach Gluten Free Restaurant Roundup.  Some of them are our favorites and most we’ve dined at over the years, and a few I’m very curious about.

For a night on the town or a dressy dinner:

  • Blue Moon Restaurant an upscale dining with a cabaret attached!
  • Eden Restaurant describes itself as bold American food.  It’s another upscale but casual restaurant. It’s eclectic menu has something for everyone-from flatbread pizzas perfect for kids to exotic game meats.
A few casual choices:
  • Salt Air Restaurant has a southern flair with a very knowledgable kitchen about allergies.
  • SoDel Concepts restaurant group runs delicious restaurants! I’ve never been disappointed at any of their outposts in Rehoboth Beach, North Beathany Beach, and Lewes.   Papá Grande’s in Rehoboth Beach appears to be their newest restaurant.  I’m always excited to try a new mexican joint. Lupa di Mare is another family favorite.
  • Dogfish Head Brewpub might seem like the wrong place for someone on a gluten free diet.  But they are very helpful and accommodating. Besides Tweason’ale, their gluten free strawberry sorghum ale is reason enough to stop by!
Just up the road in Lewes, JD’s Cafe is a casual breakfast and lunch place.  (website is being redone) They note gluten free bread and rolls on their menu. In the past, I’ve eaten Three Bakers hamburger buns as a gluten free roll  Their servers are very attentive and the kitchen is very accommodating. They’ve just rebranded the restaurant but I can say it was delicious for lunch this trip.  We’ll be back for breakfast as their omelet menu was drool worthy.
One last note: The Rehoboth Foodie blog is one of the first places I check before our annual visit to Rehoboth Beach.  It always has the latest news on restaurants openings and closings.
