Does anyone know of any restaurants to go to in Ocean City, MD for a multiple allergic child. It's hard to eat out at all with my pa, wheat and milk allergic 21 month old, especially out of town. Are there any "safe" foods for him?

My family went to O.C. a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, we didn't eat at any restaurants except for McDonalds for my peanut/egg/dairy allergic daughter. I had read from earlier postings that many of the restaurants on the Eastern Shore cook in peanut oil. I think the Bay Skillet(?) on 77th Street is ok for peanut allergic children. I heard to completely avoid Tubby's (no clue about food allergies). Bagels and Buns is a really nice shop on 60 something street. It's Jewish so you know the products are Kosher. Maybe that would be a good place to try.
Good luck. I was very disappointed to learn that so many restaurants cooked in peanut oil. Oh yeah, there is a Burger King on the boardwalk.

Yeah, I did call Bagels and Buns when we were there. The manager that day seemed knowledgeable about food allergies, or should I say, better than most. After many questions, I found out that their bagels are not safe for egg and dairy because they are made in the same mixer as egg or dairy containing products but are otherwise nut safe. but I would ask again and again..

We had a successful trip to Ocean City. Thanks to the advice givers. Due to my son's multiple allergies, we brought most of his food with us when we went out. We found that there were restaurants who claim to not use peanut oil and we found Shananagans (? spell) very knowledgable and helpful.

We go to Ocean City MD every year and have run into alot of problems with peanut oil in restaurants. The only safe restaurant I have found was J.R. ribs because they have a family member that is allergic to peanut oil so they do not use it in the restaurant. Other then that one we opt to cook at house when we are away. Better safe then sorry.

Oh, yikes. We just booked our hotel for Ocean City this week. We'll be going the last week in July so I have some time to find some safe restaurants but so far it doesn't see to good. Any ideas? We did rent an efficiency so it would probably be dinners that'll we eat out, maybe a lunch or two.
Thanks, Karen

Thanks. We have not been to a restaurant at all since diagnosis 4 years ago. Maybe we just have to call ahead to find out if they can make crab legs that are safe without butter contaminants!
any one else have experience? thanks!

Don't go to the Dough Roller. (there are about 5 of them there). I called ahead and asked about peanuts and peanut oil and they said it was safe. Wouldn't you know we sat down and right there on the menu - Peanut Butter and Jelly!
We had a great time in Ocean City last summer, hope you have fun!
