Favorite Gluten-Free Restaurants in Toledo

By January 1, 2017 Gluten Free in Toledo, Gluten-Free Restaurants
gluten free in toledo

There are plenty of chains that offer gluten-free menus these days, which is great, but it’s always better when local restaurants know how to do it right. From lunch to dinner to date night, here are my favorite gluten-free restaurants in Toledo. 


If you’re looking for a lunch spot in downtown Toledo, this is it. Grumpy’s makes homemade gluten-free bread, allowing you to enjoy all of their delicious sandwiches! And while there isn’t a specific gluten-free menu, there are plenty of options for you to enjoy—including the fan-favorite garbage salad!

Fowl and Fodder

A farm-to-table restaurant, Fowl and Fodder has sandwiches you could only dream—my favorite is the Cali Chicken on gluten-free bread. The menu has fresh, organic and locally-sourced ingredients procured from around Toledo and Northwest Ohio. Stop by to cure your sandwich cravings, or pick up a fresh juice (I recommend the Algae Bloom!). 

Their current location is on Central Avenue, but there will soon be a second location opening up on Adams Street in Uptown!

Mancy’s Italian 

Ask me, “What sounds good for dinner?” and I’ll probably say, “Mancy’s Italian.” 

Mancy’s has quite a few gluten-free options to enjoy, including pizza! Many of their entrees are gluten free or can be made gluten free. If you’re feeling fancy, order the bruschetta on the gluten-free pizza crust as an appetizer—it ends up costing ~$17, but it’s the perfect way to start off dinner!

Mancy’s Steakhouse

While it isn’t a restaurant I visit often for obvious rea$on$, Mancy’s Steakhouse does have gluten-free options. I am not sure whether or not they have a separate menu, or you simply have to ask the server which options are gluten free, but you’re definitely safe here! And who doesn’t love a good steak every now and then?

Bluewater Grille

Another restaurants within the Mancy’s family, Bluewater Grille will give you your seafood fix. I don’t have too much to say about their seafood, because I’m one of those annoying people that doesn’t like seafood, but I know everyone else thinks it’s off the chain! 

461 West Dussel Dr
Maumee, OH 43537


Real Seafood

There are plenty of gluten-free options at Real Seafood, and the location is at ‘The Docks,’ so it’s close to downtown! If you can deal with smelling the amazing bread they set on the table that isn’t gluten free, I definitely recommend dining here.

If you’re craving pasta, Zia’s is the place to go. Since it’s located at ‘The Docks,’ you can enjoy your meal with a view of downtown Toledo. If you go during the warmer months, sit on the patio so you can watch the sunset!

Maumee Bay Brewing Company

To be honest, I don’t know what is gluten-free at Maumee Bay Brewing Company other than the pizza, because that’s the only thing I’ve gotten there. It’s delicious!

Rockwell’s Steakhouse

Also located in the Oliver House, Rockwell’s is bit more of a pricier option, but good for date night or a special occasion! I don’t believe there is any gluten-free bread or specialty items, but you can enjoy a fine steak or other entree.

Toledo, OH 43604


J. Alexander’s 

While I have eaten here on a couple of occasions and been fine, my mom hasn’t been as lucky. Known as our ‘special occasion’ restaurant, she dined her recently for my aunt’s birthday. And after ordering gluten free and eating half of her chicken salad, she found a glutened tortilla strip!

Toledo, OH 43623


La Scola Italian Grille

It’s probably been close to two years since I’ve eaten at La Scola (I’ll need to change that soon!), but they have a great gluten-free menu! With TONS of options including gluten-free bread, gluten-free breading—so you can actually have chicken parmesan that’s breaded—gluten-free pasta and dessert, so you’ll love the dining experience. 

5375 Airport Hwy
Toledo, OH 43615


Shorty’s BBQ

Shorty’s BBQ is a nice place to grab lunch or dinner, and since it’s conveniently located on Monroe Street, it’s the perfect place to grab food after a day of shopping or running errands. I recommend trying their pork nachos, but as with any restaurant, be sure to always double-check that the chips are made in a dedicated fryer since kitchen’s can change their processes at any time!  

5111 Monroe St
Toledo, OH 43623


Element 112

If you’re really trying to plan a special night out, this is the place to go. I’ve only been to Element 112 twice, but it was an amazing experience on both occasions. It’s definitely on the pricey end, so plan your date night accordingly.

Registry Bistro 

I’d categorize Registry Bistro as another ‘special occasion’ restaurant. I’ve only been lucky enough to eat here twice, but it was absolutely amazing both times. The menu has GF icons next to the dishes that are gluten free, but I still recommend asking specific preparation questions.

When I dined here last, I learned that there is not a dedicated fryer, so that would have been BAD if I had eaten the side of fries they served me with my gluten-free entree! It was a lesson to never let your guard down, even at the fanciest of restaurants!

A great lunch spot in downtown Toledo, Pam’s Corner offers a variety of gluten-free sandwiches on Udi’s bread! They also have gluten-free chili and a variety of salads you can enjoy. If you’re looking for a quite place to grab lunch during the week, this is the place to go!

I’ll admit that I’ve never actually eaten at Organic Bliss, but I have had their products elsewhere! They have a large variety of gluten-free baked goods, including everything from their homemade bread (so you can order a deli sandwich), to cookies, brownies, muffins, pies—you name it!
