As promised in this post, Hannah and I have researched gluten free options on Martha's Vineyard and prepared a complete list of all the restaurants on the island that can cater to the gluten free diet! We hope that it will be useful to anyone planning a trip to the island, as we know from experience that finding gluten free options on Martha's Vineyard can be a little tricky.
Please note that we have not visited the majority of these options and cannot vouch for the taste or safety at most of these establishments! I've used an asterisk (*) to indicate places where we ate during our most recent stay.
If you know of any options that we missed, or if you have comments on whether one of the restaurants listed below did a particularly good or bad job preparing gluten free food, please don't hesitate to let us know! We do plan to edit this list over time as we become aware of more gluten free options on Martha's Vineyard.
In the meantime, enjoy!
