Popular Restaurant 1st to become NFCA GREAT Certified!

Michael Moynihan holding O'toole's
new gluten free menu!
O'toole's Restaurant in Queensbury NY is first in the area to complete the NFCA GREAT Training Course and Certification! What does this mean for you? If you and/or someone you love lives a gluten free lifestyle you now have a new place to enjoy a meal out on the town!

Congratulations to Michael Moynihan and O'toole's Restaurant for taking a proactive approach to serve their gluten free customers. What makes O'toole's different so far than just any other restaurant offering a gluten free menu in the area? They have taken your allergy and needs seriously by completing the NFCA GREAT Program and completed the Glens Falls and Saratoga Springs Regional Celiac Support Groups Restaurant Approval Program.

Michael Moynihan, Manager of O'toole's in Queensbury, is proud to offer an extensive gluten free menu prepared in a gluten free designated area in the restaurant's kitchen. They even offer a seperate deep fryer and toaster! Yes it appears that you can safely enjoy piping hot french fries again! As I can speak from my experiences there the burgers are juicey and delicious served on toasted Saratoga Gluten Free Goods Rolls. Another one of my favorite treats are their loaded potoato skins served up hot and with gluten free Cabot Sour Cream!

When you visit O'toole's please ask the hostess for a gluten free menu and as always  please also inform your waitress that you are dining gluten free.

As always I value your opinion! I would love to hear your feedback on O'toole's Restaurant!

O'toole's is located at 118 Quaker Road, Queensbury, New York 12804.
