For those with certain diet restrictions, choosing a restaurant to dine at can be difficult. The Stevens Point Area is home to many restaurants that provide unique gluten-free and vegan dining experiences for people with different diet restrictions. Since November is National Gluten-Free Diet Awareness Month and Vegan Month, this guide will help you celebrate accordingly and make that restaurant decision a little less difficult!
