Has anyone been there recently? The most recent thread that I found was from 03'. We are probably going to spend a week there this summer.

Thanks

We live in the OCNJ area & there are quite a few places where our son can eat. On the boardwalk, we eat Mac & Manco's Pizza - they have 3 locations. There is a TGIFridays right outside town, as well as a local place called Yesterdays where we eat sometimes. For breakfast or lunch, Uncle Bill's & Kessles Corner are fine.

Boardwalk places we avoid are Jilly's Boardwalk Fries as they use peanut oil, Kohr Bros Frozen Custard (PN flavored ice cream) & Johnson's Popcorn.

Hope this helps - if I think of anything else I'll post it!

Thanks! I appreciate your help! I've already scoped out that there is a "Rita's" on the boardwalk for some safe ice cream. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]

travel down a little on the Garden Sate and check out the ravioli house!

Good huh? I'm sure we'll take a drive down to Wildwood while we're there so that will come in handy.

Funny, I can't seem to access menus of most of the restaurants in that area. Italian tends to be pretty easy with PA though.

It has always been a good choice ad treat We stay in Ocean City ( 3rd week July) and take the ride down at least twice to eat..go early as the lines can get long....

Bumping. Anyone else know any places that are safe in/around Ocean City, NJ?

Last fall (Oct 06) Mangos Restaurant up in Bethany had no peanuts or peanut-products on the menu. It's a pretty quick drive from Ocean City.

Yes, I saw that but I believe you are talking about Ocean City, Maryland right? We are going to Ocean City, [i]New Jersey[/i]. Thanks for mentioning it though...and if we do go to OC, MD again sometime, I will definately try Mangos!

We are heading down the third week of July. we will let you know what we find!

On May 20, 2007

Thanks, that would be great! We will definately plan a trip to Ravioli house but still curious as to what else is around.

we go twice every summer.. late june and late august..

last year we found a place on the boardwalk that does funnel cake with vegetable oil-- so rare, everyone uses peanut oil-- in fact, the label was on display. we spoke to the owner and were very satified .. i cant remember the name, but its on the boardwalk, around 13th or 14th street..

On May 21, 2007

Thanks! Good to know. I will look for it!

Back from Ocean City!

Ok - we were stayng on 21st street - so the local mini mart, Blitzes, provided many a sandwich (my PA son loved the 3 cheesburger grinder) bucket of ribs and chicken and eg sandwiches

On the board walk we found the hamburger construction company by 10th street.

I tried a few great pizza and seafood restaurants at a street festival and almost all told me they were peanut oil, flour and but free.

Good eating!

Thanks 3nicks. We will be there in 2 weeks. We will certainly keep an eye out for the places you mentioned.

Were you trying to say that these places were peanut oil and flour free? Do you remember which restaurants these were? Thanks!

We were there late June and are heading back late August.

before DS and before DS food allergies, Uncle Bill's Pancake house was a must visit for breakfast.. we dont go there anymore. But this past June we went to The Chatterbox (i think its on 9th) - they dont do any waffles or pancakes with any peanuts or nuts.

it was fine- and we were happy to find a bfast place that we were at ease with.

a point of clarification, Uncle Bills makes a peanut butter pancake and a waffle w/pecans. out of our comfort zone.

On Aug 1, 2007

Thanks! We'll definately have to check out the Chatterbox. I think I remember reading something about that restaurant on an old thread. They said that they make PB&J but are very careful with food allergies. Good to know that their pancakes are safe because it would be nice to go out for breakfast. I also want to find the place that makes the funnel cakes!

Mimi-- i think you will be leaving OC as we are heading back down - we go back on 8/18

On Aug 5, 2007

We will be arriving in O.C.on the 18th and will be leaving on the 24th. When you said "going back",do you mean going home or going back to O.C.? In other words, will we be there at the same time? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]

If so, we have to hook up so that you can take me to the funnel cake place!

How old is Luc?

On Aug 5, 2007

We eat at The Chatterbox all of the time & they are very careful to avoid cross-contamination.

On Aug 9, 2007

Luc's Mom, I emailed you. Mimi

Just came back from our trip to Ocean City. After from having pretty much 3+ straight days of pouring rain, followed by cloudy days, we finally got sun on Thursday (at pm) so we got one full day of sunshine (Friday) and some sun today. We went to the beach again today after returning our keys.

Anyway, there are several places that I have to mention. We did eat at the Chatterbox for breakfast with no problems. My son had pancakes and bacon.

We ate one night at Carmines in Atlantic City. One dish fed four of us with tons of leftovers.

Ate pizza at 3 brother's pizza (huge slices) but the best pizza place was Angelo's. It's on the boardwalk close to the Wonderland pavillion. The pizzas all had fresh basil and or parsley, or spinach leaves. Really interesting topping combinations (i.e. eggplant with roasted red peppers, spinach leaves and mozzarella. They also have the fresh cut fries only made with veg. oil, not peanut oil.

Luc's Mom, I think I know which place you were talking about that has the safe funnel cakes. We discovered the "Philly Twist Grill" on the boardwalk at Plymouth Place. They have funnel cakes, pretzels that are either chocolate or cinnamin covered (to DIE for). My son loved being able to eat dessert on the boardwalk). He also got ice cream at Rita's.

We ate at Spadofora's safely even though they happened to have a Reese's PB pie for dessert. Food was very good.

Another great place was Katrina's for greek food. Anyway, the kids really enjoyed the week so we'll probably go again next year! Thanks for all the help everyone!

p.s If I made any typos or didn't make any sense anywhere, it's because I'm falling asleep writing this! Sorry!
