Legal Sea Foods has locations in Washington DC, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia. Their website has an online restaurant locator service that includes location specific menu options.
Legal Sea Foods isn't the only chain with a gluten-free menu.
Others include Bonefish Grill, Carrabba's Italian Grill, and Outback Steakhouse. The gluten-free menus available in these three chains have been developed in cooperation with the Gluten Intolerance Group and their Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program.

The program has expanded to include some swab testing in restaurants to reinforce issues of contamination control."
Bonefish Grill has a menu with bold GF next to the gluten-free options. This menu is available on line. Go to www.bonefishgrill.com and click on "our menu." Under "other menus" click on "gluten-free." Bonefish Grill is currently located in 32 states. ... Continue
