    Nachos were delish and fish sandwich with fries was also amazing. Sensitive celiac with no issues! Server even asked if we wanted to meet and ask the chef questions.

    They have a nice GF menu, but DO NOT execute it. I was there today with my son and I ordered the nachos. When it arrived I noticed they didn't put the chili on it so I started to eat it thinking it was under the mound of chips. When the server came by I asked about the chili and she said it should've been there. She came back with some chili and said the cheese sauce wasn't gf, and that was most certainly on the chips that I had already eaten. She took them away and a manager came out with a new order and I had to explain that I had already eaten the non GF cheese sauce. We ended up having to leave and go home so I wasn't getting sick at the park. :( Very very disappointing.

    They have a dedicated gluten free menu. The staff is awesome, and they are willing to accommodate for gluten free. Their buffalo wings are NOT on the gluten free menu only because they are fried in the regular oil. The cook was willing to bake them for me instead, which took a little longer but it was worth it. Love this place!

    Eat there every time we visit Universal and never had a problem. Love being able to get a burger and fries! Their buns are good too, larger than the ones you can get in stores. Love the margaritas too - the margarita flight is also GF and amazing! Makes for a very fun meal :)

    The others are correct. There used to be a gluten free menu; however, they have refreshed their entire menu and the gluten free one is still pending review. It should be available early 2014. However, ask for the chef, don't rely on the servers, because there are soooooo many gluten free options available to you. Including GF burger buns, a delicates fryer for fries, wings, nachos etc.. And yes even a GF brownie. Read my entire GF review of their refreshed menu on my blog: http://www.celiacinorlando.com/2013/margaritaville/

    We always come to Margaritaville on City Walk when we're in Orlando and my wife always orders from the gluten-free menu and everything is always great. Today, though, they don't have a gluten-free menu and they act like they have never heard of gluten-free. She ordered the gluten-free brownie and the waitress keeps coming to the table asking if she can have whipped cream, or chocolate syrup, or a cherry. Of course she can. We're a little worried about how this is going to work out but we're hoping for the best. UPDATE: the brownie is usually great. This time it is too crunchy and the ice cream is freezer-burned. Way, way too expensive for that to be okay, but what can you do? Probably just won't come back here again.

    Separate menu just forgluten-free. Great burger, bun was soft and not crumbly! Fries were good! The Volcano Nachos were huge (big enough for a whole family), recommend sharing! They offered to send the chef out to answer questions. Very accommodating!

    I was really impressed that the waitress took special care to speak with the chef to make sure we were ok with our order. Super nice. They have gluten free beer so I could have a beer with my cheese burger, French fries and dill pickle. It was nice that they had an actual bun to go with the burger. But it was really dry and crumbly. I've spent a lot of time perfecting bread so I'm a little critical. There are tons of other gluten free options other than a hamburger and I think I would have enjoyed them a lot. But being I was at margarita ville I took the tourist option. There were two dessert options - a brownie sundae and a peanut butter pie. We has no room to try them but they sure looked yummy and I appreciate the efforts to give is choices. Thank you!

    Went there twice during our stay because few options for GF food. First time was ok. Server knowledgeable and helpful. Second time was a disaster: waiter brought out hamburger and tho it looked just like my partner's non-GF burger, he insisted it was gluten free. I almost ate it but doubting it was a GF bun returned it to the kitchen. After waiter doublechecked, realized they had mixed up the orders. Subsequently a burger was brought out on a gf bun. It appears their staff could use better training for customers with allergies.

    I have celiac and enjoyed their gluten free volcano nachos. they ran about $16. We ate them two nights in a row. They were just that great! Easily fed 4 - especially if you decide to order the gluten free brownies topped with whipped topping and heath encrusted ice cream. Amazing! Just ask for a gluten free menu.

    Margaritaville has a gluten free menu, and their servers don't look at you, panicked, when you speak of celiac. This location is no exception. We have eaten here twice with my son who has celiac with no problems. Fun atmosphere, kid- and adult-friendly. Although we did not eat them on this trip, they have GF nachos that are amazing, as well as a GF dessert optiin-- I believe a brownie. Safe bet.

    Totally not worth the effort. Find me GF says GF menu - they do not have separate menu Called a few times during and could not get thru to representative. Stopped by during the day spoke to staff at elevator entrance - was told wings were not fried (untrue) and that they could prepare almost anything GF - first red flag - tried the place anyways - server totally uneducated about GF - kept saying we could have certain items "unless you had severe allergy or celiacs". ordered the strip steak w/o wine sauce and ended up sick after meal - BOOOO Jimmy Buffet,,,,

    Yum! Delicious place in Panama City Beach! I thoroughly enjoyed their Cheeseburger in Paradise on a gluten free bun (not many places offer gluten free breads) & was overjoyed to learn that the gf cheeseburger was the same price as the regular! Way to help people feel like you care about their allergies! Had a few issues ordering sides though. I ordered sweet potato fries, the waiter came back to say the manager said they weren't gf, then came back again to say the chef said they were. Anyway, at the end of the day, I thoroughly enjoyed the fries and burger. Thanks, Margaritaville, for a delicious gf meal!!

    the gluten free menu was a decent sized menu, our waitress wasn't very friendly but she did her job. I got the catch of the day which was grouper, it came with a choice of mango salsa or lime butter sauce, I got the mango salsa. the fish had no flavor and was burnt on the outside but was alright, it comes with island rice which I thought tasted weird so I didn't eat it and green beans which were pretty good. it's a nice place to eat with a fun atmosphere but I don't know if I'll go back.

    I had every intention of eating here. But when I went for lunch, the options seemed very limited. I honestly didn't wait for the server to tell me what I would have assumed to be 'you can have a salad or a burger without the bun.' I did have Ace Pineapple cider though which I'd never had before. It was delicious and the bartender was great! I'd go back for a drink.

    We explained to the waiter that our daughter has celiac. We ordered the cheeseburger with a gluten free bun & the fries. He said the fries have a seasoning on them that is not GF so he would make sure they were unseasoned. The food came out & the fries had the seasoning - which was not very noticeable. Thankfully, we caught it before she ate it & they remade her whole plate of food. Several waiters & managers apologized but we probably won't eat here again.

    This used to be our favorite place for lunch in Waikiki. We used to dream about the amazing nachos. Now that it is under new management they do not have a designated fryer. And now they add flour to thicken the chili. The staff tried very hard to help me find something else. I did have a nice meal but I'm not sure it will be on our list of places to go next time.
