Allergy Friendly Restaurants In Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg

Navigating vacation with food allergies can be challenging. You still want to enjoy the luxury of eating out but it comes with many concerns, dangers and questions. While it may be harder to find restaurants perfect for your trip when you have food allergies to consider, it is definitely doable if you put in a little planning and work in advance. Check out these tips for eating with allergies in Pigeon Forge and find some allergy friendly restaurants and menus below.


Quick Tips For Dining With Allergies In Pigeon Forge

  • Check Online For Special Menus: Allergy friendly restaurants may post a special menu on their website for visitors to look at in advance. If not, be sure to check the normal menu and see if there are any symbols, notes or information about allergens. You may find gluten friendly, dairy-free, peanut-free or other distinctions marked.
  • Utilize Online Databases: There are plenty of online resources created by families of children with allergies for other families with similar struggles. Sites like allergyeats.com provide a platform for families to rate and review restaurants around the country on their experiences with food allergy requests. You can find information on common allergies like peanuts, dairy, gluten, eggs and more. While these websites cannot guarantee accuracy, you can always use them as a jumping off point for your research.
  • When In Doubt, Call Ahead: If you are concerned about a restaurant's ability to accommodate your needs, it's best to call and ask questions yourself. This can alleviate any confusion you may find online and prevent frustrating experiences when you arrive for your trip. The last thing you want is a hungry child (or even adult) and no guarantee of allergen-free food options. Ask to speak to a manager or even the chef for answers specific to your needs.
