    They don't have a gluten free menu, however the waitress informed me that are slowly making their entire menu gluten free, with current gluten free sauces and substituted items. I had the barbecue chicken with fries which was nice but nothing special, but I did not get sick which is always a good thing.

    They do not have a GF menu which is why I gave them four stars. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. My son really enjoyed hamburger and fries.

    I was confused when we stopped in for a burger, because our experience was not the same as others. I would not classify Hard Rock in Maui as celiac friendly, no dedicated fryers or cooking areas (at least not according to our waitress), no gf bun options, no gf menu at all. All of their BBQ sauces have soy sauce, even the beans that top the nachos have wheat. Very few options without extreme modification. The only reason I give them 2 stars is because our waitress was trying so hard to make something work.

    Didn't have a gluten free menu, but had options. Fries were in a separate fried. Food was overpriced and nothing special, just like every hard rock. Overall, sever was very helpful and I felt fine after eating.

    Burger was delicious. The gf bun was amazing in taste but started to fall apart bad when I was finishing up. Best gf bun I've ever had even if it did fall apart.

    Highly recommended! The manager, Scott, came to my table and discussed the gf options with me. He waited for the waitress to explain her that the ordered burger needs to be gf and that they have to make gf fries. Very good job! The food was tasty! And in addition they have two hard cider.

    Manager recommended the Mac and cheese. When I asked if the pasta was gluten free he said oh oh no that's right. Don't get that. Then he said they had a dedicated fryer for allergies. 1.5 hours later still no food. The fryer broke. No one bothered to tell us. They do have udis gf buns so the burgers technically are GF but I would not trust contamination. My daughter is celiac and I just can't risk it.

    Manager came out to go over menu. Lots of choices but no dedicated gluten free menu. Can't have nachos but fries made in separate area. Amazing Udi's gluten free bun. Manager even gave me one to take for free. A little loud but great food and service. I recommended they make gluten free flags so you know your food is correct. It was hard to tell the rolls apart (but that's also a good thing).

    Hard rock does not have a gluten free menu. However, they have options for people that are gluten free. Almost all of their sandwiches/burgers are gluten free, as long as you ask for a gluten free bun. Make sure to ask your server if the fries are cooked in their own fryer, and if they are, get them unseasoned. Their BBQ sauce is not gluten free. Also, their service was slow, but the food was very satisfying considering we just came from a long day of not eating.

    Great service! No gluten free menu but just tell the waiter about your allergies and a manager comes out to discuss your allergies. He gave me all the options for myself and my two boys 4 and 6. They have a separate grill and fryer so we enjoyed gf fries. It was a great meal and no one had any issues afterward.

    I was recently at Universal Studios and was unable to eat anything within the park. As we were leaving we decided to try the Hard Rock Cafe. A manager was sent over to take my order and informed me that all food was made on a seperate grill. Also things like french fries were made in a seperate frier. I was able to eat a fantastic meal with no worry. I would highly recommend going to the Hard Rock the next time you are in Orlando

    Our waitress was absolutely wonderful and gave me great recommendations on the best gluten free burger...hickory bacon BBQ burger. If that wasn't good enough she suggested the brownie Sunday which was also gluten free. Food was so good. Will make this place a frequent stop. Waitress said their menu is about 90% gluten free, wish all restaurants were like this

    I just read Micheal's comment and it surprised me because I ask my server twice if the fries were safe and she said they had a dedicated fries. Since I trust no one and know how easy you can mess up a GF plate, I also doubled check about cross contamination and she assured me that all was safe. The bun was GF and the fries were good, I was fine so hopefully they do have a dedicated frier now. Anyhow next time I walk into a HR I will check with the manager.

    They provided a gluten-free menu but it was more like a gluten friendly menu. Initially I was very excited to see all the options even gluten free buns. I ended up ordering the nachos on the gluten-free menu not thinking they make their own...manager comes out to ask if I'm allergic to which I responded yes. He then tells me that the gluten-free menu shouldn't have been released as it was starting the following week. The tortilla chips are gluten-free but are fried in the same oil as all other fried items. Due to this I didn't end up eating, just drank an angry orchard. Seems Hard Rock needs to do better accomodating allergies...

    It took a little longer for our meal, but that was because they had to go start up a new grill for us. I appreciated their caution. We didn't get sick, and the hamburger was delicious. Disappointed the fries weren't in a dedicated frier, but the coleslaw was delicious. Management and staff were friendly and helpful.

    We had a fantastic experience. Our server Hannah was very accommodating and we were confident in her suggestions. The chef ( wish we knew her name) met us at our table to talk about options for our daughter with celiac. She assured us the food would be prepared safely. Our daughter ordered a burger with gf bun and baked fries. She said the fries were the best she's ever had. We also ordered the gf brownie with ice cream for dessert. It was huge!!! The look on our 8 yr old's face was priceless. Hard Rock provided excellent service and food.

    We took our family because they advertise they can serve gluten free. Our two year old and four old are allergic wheat so we choose hard rock based on their add. After waiting 35 minutes for a seat, 30-40 minutes for food we had to send back both of our kids meals because they were wrong. We then waited another 30 minutes before I had to go find our waitress only she could tell us they did not have what they advertised. Her solution we can feed a four year old and a two year old a salad. Now we wait for a manager after waitress just does not come back. Manager just said they cannot help. We had to leave with two upset and hungry kids to try and find something else for them. Absolutely terrible.

    The server had no idea about gluten free options. I figured a plain burger would be ok, but none of the sides could be made GF and DF except for a plain salad. From our research we had to tell the waitress that they did indeed have GF buns, she had no idea. I've never been to a more allergy unaware Hard Rock.

Initially burger came out with the bun even though I'd specifically ordered it without. Waitress had them remake it instead of just taking the bun off, which was good.

    Ordered fajitas after waiter told us they were gluten free and could be served with corn tortillas. Right before food was served he explained the marinate for the steak might not be gluten free and that the corn tortillas were made in a wheat facility and might also contain wheat. So we were served unseasoned steak and shrimp over some onions and bell peppers with a side plate of cheese with no offer to order something else from the menu. Not exactly my idea of 30 dollar fajitas..

    Terrible service and no way to accommodate allergies. She told us 'if you see something on there that you know you can eat you should order it'. She had no idea what anything had in it, ingredient wise, and then said 'I should learn more about it' when answering our allergy questions. So to be safe we ordered a salad with no cheese. Not only did the salad come out with cheese on it, she proceeded to argue with us that it did not have cheese. Never going back

    Server said they had no gluten free options very resolutely. Then he mentioned they might have gluten free bread. They couldn't care less to accommodate, or try. Perhaps they have their food prepared elsewhere & they don't know the ingredients. Or Perhaps they just don't care. With their prices, you would expect otherwise. Planet Hollywood is much much better for service & gluten free options.

    Server told me they had no gluten free menu. I was on vacation and trying to just not be a problem for the other people we were with so I asked for chicken sandwich with no bun, no sauces and no fries. She said we have a gluten free bun (which she didn't tell me in the beginning). So I said of course yes but then my food came out and I always ask to make sure. the server who brought us our food said it wasn't a gluten free bun and took it back. I should have not eaten the food when it came back out but I did and was incredibly sick that night. I am sure they just replaced the bun which of course cross contaminated everything on the plate. :( seems like Vegas is not very up to date on allergies like this and I went here because they were rated 4 stars. Most places we went following advice on here didn't know anything. I suggest bringing or buying your own food and eating in the hotel.
