Looking for delicious gluten-free restaurants around Spokane? If you thought Spokane’s gluten-free scene was small, think again! Gluten-free restaurants have exploded in recent years, as have the gluten-free menus of many delicious restaurants.

With many people being strictly gluten-free due to gluten allergies, we’d love to share some fan-favorites for the best gluten-free eats around Spokane.

If you have allergies, please make sure to double-check with these restaurants and wait-staff to ensure your food is truly gluten free. Many times, restaurants may advertise gluten-free items, but they can be cross-contaminated by cooking gluten-containing items on the same counters and fryers.

While we have done our work to research these restaurants and their gluten-free menus, it’s important to always verify just in case.

Wiley’s Downtown Bistro

Wiley’s Bistro in downtown Spokane takes gluten-allergies seriously. If you’ve been struggling to find good food and to dine out safely with Celiac disease, you can count on them to design meals that you can enjoy no matter your dietary restrictions.

Plus, if you also love happy hour, Wiley’s is one of our favorite happy hours in Spokane, too!

Wiley’s is so dedicated to providing safe, delicious food that they recently shared this, and the photo below, on their Facebook page:

Good morning Spokane! We saw a post recently about someone struggling to find a place to dine out safely with Celiac disease.

You can count on us to create a meal you can enjoy no matter what your restrictions are…because everyone deserves to be able to enjoy a night out! Got some wild allergies? We love a challenge.

Nearly everything on the menu at Wiley’s is gluten-free or can be altered. Their servers are knowledgeable about most allergies, and can work with guests to accommodate anyone.

As Wiley’s states, “we enjoy cultivating dishes for all allergies, restrictions and diets, because we want you to feel like a friend and because everyone deserves to go out and treat themselves.”

“At Wiley’s, we genuinely strive to befriend and serve all aspects of our community. We feel lucky to be a part of the food-scene in Spokane!” Focusing on local, food and artwork within originates from the Spokane region as much as possible. At Wiley’s, their culture and atmosphere are inclusive, friendly, and supportive.

Try their Duck Confit with a huckleberry reduction, Ahi Tower topped with tobiko and pickled ginger, vegan Chocolate Pot De Crème with raspberry sauce and almond whipped cream, and Creme Brulée with a caramelized bourbon vanilla whip.

Melting Pot

Have you ever gone to dinner with a bunch of people who couldn’t make up their mind about where to eat? In those cases, it’s helpful to have chains like the Melting Pot where there is something for everyone!

Yes, with a vegan menu and gluten-free options, there’s truly something for everyone at the Melting Pot. Gluten-free options at the Melting Pot are noted with a “GF”, and there are plenty of options that will keep you well-fed!

Wild Sage Bistro

Wild Sage is a locally owned bistro and bar in downtown Spokane. Their menu features “high-quality meats, fresh seafood, seasonally-inspired food, and locally sourced ingredients.” It’s a great place for comfortable, yet fine-dining with farm-to-table gluten-free eats.

Since 2006, Wild Sage’s managing partners have created a premier dining destination that’s become an award-winning restaurant that locals love. The menu offers many gluten-free items along with helpful staff. This popular spot, especially for date nights in Spokane, offers a great time.

I recommend their Yukon Golden Potato Taquitos with white cheddar and salted cabbage, their Palouse Chickpea Cakes with spiced tzatziki and tomato caper relish, and their Pork Belly Crostini grilled on gluten free bread with goat cheese mousse and tomato jam – but check their menu, as it can change!

RÜT Bar

Opening in 2019, this modern American-style Gastropub brought vegan and vegetarian health-promoting comfort foods to the city of Spokane. Their plant-filled interior with natural textures, and paintings by Hazel Miller encourage customers to linger while appreciating their meals.

Dessert options at RUT

No one is out of place at RUT, whether you’re meat-eating, vegetarian, flexitarian, gluten-intolerant or otherwise. The owners, both vegans themselves, decided to open RUT because they noticed a lack of vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Spokane – but RUT caters to far more than “just” vegans!

RÜT welcomes all people, as you don’t have to be vegan or celiac to relish their food. For those that appreciate real food, “RÜT is dedicated to the health of the Earth and its inhabitants. We are committed to creating a safe, welcoming space.”

With an impeccable wine-list, craft-cocktails and popular microbrews, they’ve become a place to host private parties, rehearsal dinners, birthdays and business meetings.

1910 Restaurant at the Spokane Club

Cole’s uses local resources to provide customers one of the best allergen-free dining experience in Spokane. As a company, their culture and values lie in constantly improving the quality and consistency of their food.

“Creating delicious gluten-free food and a positive experience for people is our reason for existing,” said Cole’s. “We want to provide a place in the community for people diagnosed with Celiac disease or those adhering to an allergy-specific lifestyle.” Cole’s is a place you can dine regardless of any allergy-limitations.
