Until recent changes, this was an excellent GF restaurant. They can no longer make GF fries or nachos, also said that the grill is cross contaminated. We were offered salads and declined. The Nordstrom Cafe saved the day!
Closed until April!!
Great food! They use special toothpick to designate gf food with separate fryers.
We visited Navy Pier for the day and had lunch at Margaritaville. My daughter has celiac disease, so cross contamination is a big concern for me. After talking to the hostess, so gave us a gluten free menu with appetizers, sandwiches (Udi's buns), and even a dessert. It was loud and at a busy lunch hour so I was nervous. Tyrone was our waiter and everything was easy. They had GF margaritas and cider. We had chips and dip for appetizer. My daughter had a GF hamburger and I had the cheeseburger. They have a designated French frier. All was delicious. We ended the meal with a gigantic GF brownie dessert. It was fabulous. There was a mistake with my order, but Tyrone had it on the table within 5 minutes and comped it from my bill. Very lovely establishment.
Navy Pier location - Dedicated French Fry fryer. Server could answer all my questions and everything was correct for a Celiac diet. Ordered GF cheeseburgers, fries and fish sandwiches.
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.
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 :)
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.
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..
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.
I have been to the Margarittaville in Florida. I got the exact same thing in Nashville (chicken sandwich with fries) and it was just as good. Very happy with the food and consistency at different locations!
The chicken sandwich was very good! The bun was a little hard, but softened as I ate it. The fries were good as well. It was nice to feel "normal" and be able to eat a meal out. Not tons of options on the strip, so this is a good good to if you are in the area and want American food. The atmosphere is a little cheesy, but luckily wasn't as loud as I expected.
They have a gluten free menu, but not very extensive. Burger was average and fries too. Said they have separate fryers and areas to prevent cross contamination. Gf bun was pretty good but shrimp appetizer was horrible Do Not Order it! Waiter not very knowledgable but tried.
Fabulous GF service! They have a GF menu including burgers (with bun) and fries!! Absolutely great place! Staff is well trained.
Definitely GF friendly. I was told the Executive chef has a gluten intolerance. They have a GF menu and take great care and explained how everything is cooked in a separate area. I had not had a burger with gf bread and sweet potato fries in a long time. The menu had appetizer options and desserts as well. Definitely going back!
I love having an actual gluten free menu to order from. I had missed fish sandwiches so that is what I had. Fish was really good. Didn't care for the tartar sauce. Chips really good. Service a little slow and they weren't busy.
Atmosphere was fun. Volcano nachos were very tasty. Knowledgeable staff.
