Fenway Park (Gluten Free)
Fenway park is Gluten Free and for the most part celiac friendly. The best place to find Gluten Free food is at the ‘Home Place Concourse.’
You can get Gluten free Hot Dogs, Ice Cream, and Whoopi Pies. Fenway Park does offer gluten free pizza but the "word on the street" is that it isn't celiac friendly because its bake unprotected in the same oven as regular pizza.(Need Verification)
There is a gluten free cart, but it isn't clear on what is available in there.
Don't forget to stop by the peanut cart near Gate ‘A’ That’s where you’ll see Nicholas “Nicky” Jacobs selling them. The family has been selling peanuts at the same spot since 1912.
Bring Food into the Park
You can bring your own food into the park. There are some limitations that you should be aware of:
All persons, bags, and personal items are subject to inspection before entering Fenway Park. No bag or item larger than 16"x16"x8" will be permitted inside the Park.
The following items are also prohibited: hard-sided coolers, cans, bottles (except sealed water bottles of 16 oz or less), glass containers of any kind, alcoholic beverages, illegal substances, firearms, noise-making devices, flag poles, selfie-sticks, sign poles, brooms (or any other similar props that may be dangerous or cause injury to other fans), knives, box cutters, tools of any kind (including Leathermen), or any item that could be used as a weapon, any commercial audio/visual equipment and any sign, costume, clothing or item that may be deemed offensive.
Your best best is to eat before coming to the park and enjoying a small snack during the game.
Back Bay Restaurants
If you're arriving at the park early, you do have some choices from nearby Back Bay restaurants that offer Celiac friendly menus. We have eaten at all of these and can vouch that they are worth stopping at.
Great Food. Huge Beer selection. Usually quiet than most places. Very Celiac friendly will let you know your options and answer any concerns you may have. Every time we go the staff seems to be very knowledgeable about the topics.
Lots of Gluten-free healthy options. Biggest downside is that it can be crowded. Kitchen can be busy, so if your in a rush don't stop here.
Good Gluten-free options. Chinese may not be on your mind going to baseball games, but it's there if you're hungry for alternate to burgers and you don't want to wait for the Cheesecake factory.

The burgers are slightly cheaper than Five Napkin. Very casual. Closer to the park than other places. This isn't a fast food restaurant but your food will be served faster. There is limited seating. Burgers are good.
This is a bit fancier than the other places. Good Gluten-free options. You are a long way to get to Fenway after a meal. Your best bet would be to grab a taxi to get to Fenway Park. It will cost about $10.
We'll be visiting the park on June 19th and I'll post an update on our experience on the 21st.

I always order he "gluten-friendly" cheese pizza at Fenway Park. It is cooked in he same oven as the regular pizza, but it is cooked on its own aluminum platter (that it comes in when taken out of the box - it's a frozen pizza). I am not celiac, but I have a life-threatening wheat allergy (among others) and I have never had a problem!
