My go-to restaurant in Port Credit is The Pump House Grille. Around the time that I discovered I had to go gluten free I spotted a ‘New Gluten Free Menu’ sign outside it. It was such a relief at that time knowing that there was a restaurant within walking distance that had a dedicated gluten free menu. Since then, my friend Kaitie and I have made it a habit of eating there together and have quickly narrowed down our standard order.
The Pump House Grille has a larger than expected gluten free menu including hearty chili, nachos, salads and pasta dishes, as well as steak and salmon entrees. My favourite thing to order is the blackened chicken alfredo. It’s delicious – nothing fancy, just a big serving of creamy comfort food! The pasta is so tender thanks to the creamy alfredo sauce that at first you might think they gave you gluten pasta, but nope – it’s just that damn good!
Another reason why I love Pump House is because of it’s great atmosphere! There is a bar section full of people drinking and watching sports, as well as a casual dining area that always feels warm & welcoming. It’s a great place to grab dinner with friends because it has an extensive menu with something for everyone, plus it’s very reasonably priced.
My only complaint is that there are no gluten free desserts. …but that just gives me the excuse of dropping by Raw Aura for a slice of chocolate banana cake on the way home!!
