Myrtle Beach Gluten Free Restaurant Options
Many people are eliminating gluten from their diets for a number of reasons, and while sticking to special diets when you’re on vacation isn’t always easy, it can make a big impact on your health!
Fortunately, growing awareness of gluten concerns means there are more options for gluten free food every day, and Myrtle Beach is no exception!
We spoke with Mike Schroll, who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease five years ago and moved to Myrtle Beach in November 2012. Celiac disease is only treatable with diet, meaning gluten—the part of cereal grains that gives bread dough its elasticity—must be strictly avoided. That means cutting out regular bread, pasta, and even many sauces, from soy sauce to salad dressings. But Schroll said you can still eat well in Myrtle Beach, even while avoiding Gluten!
Here are a few of his top recommendations:
6401 N. Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach
“Mr. Fish is great—they have some gluten-free-specific items, like pasta, and their own gluten-free bun, which makes for great burgers and fish sandwiches. They also carry gluten-free soy sauce, so you can enjoy their sushi,” Schroll said.

“Our Red Robin is great — they have gluten-free buns and good processes with fries. I've been there a half-dozen times”
