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.
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.
Gluten free buns, separate frier for fries and tots. Manager very knowledgeable.
No longer have expanded gf menu. Disappointing...
Went last night very rude only have two gluten free items Many empty tables understaffed Will not go back!!! almost walked out Told us a 30 minute wait and when we took a table in the bar anticipating ordering a drink and waiting they said that we could not do that. The bluten free is false advertising
Dedicated fryer. Gluten free buns. Staff is knowledgable.
Great GF menu! Lots of choices and dedicated fryer! Recommended!
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
Was served fish sandwich on GLUTEN bun even after asking person who brought food out if it was GF. Ask again after everyone had their plates as bun looked same to me and said so even though my sandwich had a different marker in the bun
Excellent food! I had the volcano nachos which were gluten free and amazing. Be prepared to share though they are huge, I split them with 3 other people and there was still enough left to be my entree. The gluten free brownie with Heath bars and ice cream was excellent as well. The staff was very gluten free friendly and I got no symptoms!
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.
Had an actual GF menu with lots of options. I had the volcano nachos, which could have fed a few people!
best gluten free meal, our server Kendra , was amazing.
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.
GF burger and fries were great. VERY disappointed they no longer have the GF dessert I remembered from last time though it is still on menu. Server didn't tell me until He brought all the non GF desserts and I had to watch others enjoy their desserts with no GF options.
My daughter was excited they had gf buns available! GF menu had a good number of options on it. They have a separate fryer they use and our waitress was very well informed. My daughter ended up getting the gf cheeseburger and sweet potato fries, she loved both!
They had gf menu at check-in. Ask there before going in. They don't have the gf menus further in. Waitress was not knowledgeable and seems unsure but she got a manager and they were helpful but always give same warning about they can't guarantee no cross contamination because non gf food there do but they take proper precautions. I got a burger with gf buns and fries and it was excellent and I did hot get sick.
Food was okay (my husband felt the same about his non-GF meal). They do have a larger GF menu and staff is knowledgeable, but I would say this is somewhere you go more for the experience than the food. Our service was extremely slow as well.
My daughter ordered GF nachos. What she received would have fed our table of 5! They were ok but nothing special....which is how everyone at the table felt about their food. Cool restaurant and we had a great server......I would go back for the atmoshpere but not the overpriced just ok food. They did have a GF menu with a number of options available.
