Several restaurants and bakeries are offering a decent selection of gluten-free food these days, making it possible for those allergic to gluten to be able to eat out. Today, I am highlighting four restaurants, all but one located in downtown Lancaster City.

The Belvedere Inn

The Belvedere Inn is an award-winning restaurant in Lancaster, PA, known for its delicious contemporary American cuisine and elegant dining atmosphere. Gluten-free options include, but are not limited to French escargot, seared Ahi tuna with salsa verde, radishes, pickled onion, compressed cucumber, and avocado mousse. An entree worth mentioning is the pan roasted duck breast with maple squash puree, black pepper orange gastrique, Brussels sprouts with cippolini onion, and fried pistachios.

Address: 402 North Queen Street, Lancaster, PA 17603


At Josephine's, everything served is made completely from scratch by their imaginative chefs. The menu has several gluten-free dishes, including filet of prime beef with cauliflower puree, black truffle meringue, jus de viande, and lingonberry essence, and their famous 5 oz A5 Wagyu.

Address: 50 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA 17603

Stoner Grille

What separates Stoner Grille from the other restaurants aside from the fact that it is located outside of the city center, is the fact that this one is very kid-friendly. There's plenty of outdoor seating and the inside is spacious, and you'll also find a mini-golf course on site. Stoner Grille is known for the fish tacos, which you can get gluten-free! They also have several salads and sides that are gluten-free.

Address: 605 Granite Run Dr, Lancaster, PA 17601

The Imperial

The Imperial, a restaurant in the heart of the city, offers a wide selection of gluten-free options. Pan-seared pork chop, shrimp and wild mushroom risotto with shredded mixed vegetables, sautéed spinach and citrus beurre blanc, and Hawaiian grilled salmon with red rice pilaf topped with avocado, mango, and served with garlic asparagus.

While The Imperial offers a decent variety of gluten-free options on their menu, they are not an official gluten-free restaurant, and they state on their website that they cannot ensure that cross-contamination will never occur.
