Ordered nachos with just cheese for my 8yr old celiac. Beware- the nachos can only have shredded cheese on them- they cannot confirm the cheese sauce is GF. The first batch did have cheese sauce, chef came out, apologized and brought a new batch.
Chicken Caesar salad was awesome... not too terribly expensive ... bartenders very knowledgeable about gluten free food and alcohol
one word. NACHOS huge nachos that I ate as my meal. couldn't finish them. tried to have desert and couldn't finish that either. very good
They had gluten free and vegetarian menus at the hostess stand. The menu had some great options and they heard to them when I told the server I needed my meals gluten free. The manager brought out my meal and I had a gluten free drink at the bar and desert. No reaction and I am very sensitive. The dessert was so big it could feed all four of us so I had left overs for tomorrow. Very happy!!!!!!
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.
Great food and gf fries
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.
Great GF menu. I had the blackened grouper sandwich and sweet potato fries. Yum!!!!
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!
If you have celiac I would NOT recommend. The service was horrible and I ordered a burger with a gluten free bun and the bun must have been the regular because I got very sick after!!!
We have Celiac - this restaurant is awesome!!! 2 page GF menu including a brownie sundae dessert option! Dedicated fryer for French fries! Delicious food and many options.
I would highly recommend eating here! delicious burgers with gf buns, appetizers, margaritas and knowledgeable staff. we ordered nachos and the waiter knew that they had changed brands for their cheese sauce and the new one isn't gluten free - he made sure the chef put shredded cheese instead.
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 :)
Great experience and great food!!!
Very good experience and would go back again. Server was very experienced and even brought chef out to reassure me. Used separate grill and fryer. Had cheeseburger on gf bun and fries with no issues. I tipped extra for their great service, which doesn't seem to happen too often with CD and everyone being on the gf band wagon these days..
food is very good they have a gluten free macadamia nut brownie that is fantastic and gluten free rolls and a separate fryer for their fries :)
Really tasty burger seemed very knowledgable on GF food prep.
Awesome and huge volcano nachos from separate GF menu. Bun on my burger was delicious. Not a lot of GF options but enough to have a nice experience. GF brownie dessert was great!
not sure what the other reviews are referring to, staff was knowledgeable and the menus are wonderful. Dedicated frier, frys, burgers on GF buns.... yes its a great place! Update...spoke to manager and for a few months they removed the GF offering its back with more offerings. thanks and enjoy
They have a gluten free menu now, with some great options, yes to the gf brownie, they have a dedicated fryer for the fries too
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/
the entire menu has gluten...fried, breaded, etc. there is no gf menu, although I was told that they are working on it. Big disappointment.
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.
Very helpful and good options with gluten free buns! Bartenders made special drink sampler with all safe ingredients for me and waiter really worked with me and took gf seriously!
I have never reviewed a restaurant ever! The Margaritaville Burger with GF bun was the best we ever ate! Amazing! Thank you for making our lives easy and delicious.
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!
favorite place to eat! they have several g-free options.
Wouldn't recommend coming here if you are looking for a lot of options. They offer gluten free buns but you can only have a plain cheeseburger because the rest include sauces that contain gluten. The service was horrible. When I asked to see the gluten free menu that they advertised the waitress wouldn't give it to me and rudely replied "All we have is gluten free buns and kettle chips." Also was given kettle chips with my meal instead of fries without being asked. I'm not celiac so I don't worry about cross contamination. Service was horrible, for was mediocre
Amazing cheeseburger on extremely edible gluten free bun. Fries are made in dedicated fryer & no joke, they were so good I almost saved my burger for later do I could eat them all. Server understood cross contamination and was NICE- no eye rolling & wasn't a bit bothered by questions. In fact, she explained how they do things when I asked for the gf menu.
Servers were great and understanding, I went for drinks and apps and she went and asked bar which margaritas were safe. Just two. I got the loaded nachos which were really good though were made from kettle cooked potato chips instead of tortilla, which worked fine for me.
Burger w/ gf bun was excellent! Fries & ranch dressing also gf!
Asked the waiter for gluten free options was told the volcano nachos were. Was never informed that the nachos would be made with lays potato chips. The nacho was horrible! The potato chips were not an adequate substitution and were rather nauseating in the meal. Have been to several margaritavilles and had an amazing experience and more options. Would give this one the lowest rating of them all.
No gluten free menu but waiter and chef both came out to discuss my allergy and read all the ingredients and even informed of a shared fryer. Waiter can explain options. Fajitas were great.
Great menu and great food.
Good variety of options on the GF menu. Had the chicken sandwich and fries. Probably the best GF bun I've tried.
Waitress was knowledgeable and super nice. I had the cheeseburger in paradise with fries and gf bun. No reaction!! Loved it and will be back!
I'm a GF vegetarian & they made some awesome nachos with black beans instead of chili. They were SO good! They have a separate GF menu but our waitress didn't seem to know a whole lot about GF. Be sure to tell them ahead of time & they put on the ticket to have the chef prepare it separately!
Based on reviews, I was excited to eat somewhere close to my hotel (100% rating by celiac). They seemed very aware of CD/GF needs. Unfortunately, I got sick and was not as active in the work conference I was attending due to this. Can't say someone else might not get sick as everyone is unique but I have CD and did!
We ate here last night. Lots of choices and great service. I have celiac and get sick very easily. I had the cheeseburger with french fries and had no reaction at all. Also there is a gluten-free brownie dessert with ice cream and whipped cream was fabulous. We all shared it because it was very large servings. The waiter knew about select the seas no problems here Will definitely go again when we come back to Destin.jmo
Just went after looking at the GF menu online and calling ahead. They said they have a separate grill/prep area for all items on the GF menu, so I tried it out. The menu is pretty decent - 3-4 entrees, 3-4 sandwiches, 3-4 apps, 3-4 salads and a dessert to choose from. The prices of the sandwiches are the same as the regular menu, so no upcharge for the GF bun! I got a sandwich and it was great and no gluten reaction afterwards. The sandwich was served with fries and I asked the waiter about them and he said they have a dedicated fryer for just GF food, so I ate them as well. The waiter was knowledgeable and the food was really good. Would absolutely go back.
Great GF menu includes brownie sundae for dessert. Yum! GF burgers with buns (remind them to microwave the bun). Lots of choices on menu. Try the volcano nachos. Enough for 4 people to share. Great, fun atmosphere but noisy. (Hurricane goes off every hour- too funny). Always crowded. Call 2-3 days in advance and get priority seating.
This is not the correct address for Margaritaville restaurant. Not sure what this is.
Had a great waiter, Chris Rhodes, who made mult trips to check on my restrictions. Got the GF shrimp appetizer (lime-butter shrimp and veggies with GF toast strips). It was excellent, and I had no problems at all, which is great when you're travelling! Wish we had this restaurant near home! (I am GF and casein free, and am pretty sensitive to cross contact, but not diagnosed celiac...)
Very good food, large portions. Tried the volcanic nachos, awesome. We didn't get sick 😃that's always wonderful
First time here. Great service, drinks and food! Jeff was a very attentive waiter ;) I loved how they presented my food and said "gluten free" first which made me feel very comfortable! Jeff was extremely knowledge about gluten free options..including drinks. Will definitely visit again...and again...and again.
Too busy! 2 hour waits!
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.
Great food, great atmosphere, and great service!!! Would highly recommend
Nice to have a good burger and fries.
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,,,,
Amazing. Huge menu. Delicious food. Very knowledge staff.
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!!
