    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 :)

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..

    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.

    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!

    They DO NOT understand the concept of gluten free here. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich on a gf bun. The waitress brought out a chicken breast topped with BBQ sauce (not gf) and onion straws (also not gf). When I brought it to her attention she came back with a new sandwich on the same bun soaked in BBQ sauce.

    Great GF place. Tim was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. he said they use Udi buns and have a dedicated fryer. My kids ate off the kids menu which is rare. One got the hamburger with a GF bun and the other ordered the fried fish which they were able to sub for some grilled fish! their servings were huge. Even had sweet potato fries. I had this amazing fish sandwich with slaw. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for GF dining.

    The MargaritaVille has an atmosphere to die for. The Margaritas were great (of course), and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. Sadly, helpfulness and accommodation only goes so far. I ordered the nachos and I have never been so sick in my life. Thanks to MargaritaVille my last night in Vegas was not enjoying the strip but rather being glued to the toilet.

    Hey guys, just to let everyone know they are redoing their menu and DO NOT have gluten free buns right now. They may have them again in the future but as of October 12 2014 they don't have them. Our server was super knowledgeable about what I could do with my burger instead, and understood my major disappointment. The gluten free menu for now is the regular menu with GF options highlighted with a marker

    Well my son and I are on our way to the cardinal game and he has celiac so we decided to stop in for dinner before the game. 45 minute wait although there were many open tables. The hostess seating is super slow so we thought we would sit at the bar and eat but nooooooo the bar maid said she couldn't do that. So here we wait looking at open tables with no one being seated. The barmaid was un happy and the hostesses seemed bothered by all the customers wanting to spend there money to eat there! Finally got seated and looked around 7 empty tables not including ours! Poor scheduling of employees or poor training of employees for a busy night of football. Our waiter was fast and super kind and they do have a full gluten free menu! Food was very good.

    Not as good as the one in Niagara Falls where I remember a much better burger and fries. Appreciate the dedicated fryer but the crinkle cut fries were nothing special. My medium well burger was pretty pink. Also remember a better bun at the Falls. This one totally fell apart and I switched to eating with a knife and fork. Oh, and the cheese was not melted on the burger just kind of laid on top. The waitress was very attentive, but not much else to write home about.

    They have a GF menu with several items,including burgers, fish, and a couple appetizers. I had the taco salad, which had chili instead of taco meat, but it was yummy. The star is the GF brownie sundae, which fed four of us dessert for 7.99. You can sit inside or outside on a covered deck feet from the water, watching boats go by. Our total was $72 for 4 people. It is right next to a dolphin cruise, which we took right before we ate here, in the Marina in Destin, FL.

    This is probably one of the best GF experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. Our server's name was Jasmine, and she went above and beyond to ensure that my meal was definitely gluten free. Margaritaville has a great gluten free menu to begin with, including GF buns for their burgers/sandwiches, and they also have a dedicated GF frier - which the fries were amazing! I had the Volcano Nachos as an appetizer, and the Cheeseburger in Paradise with fries. I so wish I could have tried their GF brownie, but I was so full! I would go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat.
