    More menu items would be nice. But enjoyed ourselves and no issues eating the GF nachos. Was on kettle chips which was different but tasty. Not a light or healthy meal but didn't expect it to be.

    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.

    Not bad. They have a dedicated GF menu (yay!) but it is very short and doesn't include any of their specialties. Service was great, and restaurant style was very loud New Orleans-ish. Fun atmosphere.

    Our first time eating here and we really enjoyed it! The atmosphere can be a bit noisy, as a heads up... choose your seating wisely. Menu-wise, they have dedicated gluten-free AND vegetarian menus! Such a plus. The green beans (vegetarian option) impressed us the most. Not overly salty or buttery, just a refreshingly balanced seasoning.

    Good GF menu- however I ordered the chicken breasts and the chicken was still raw so they made me a new one and once again the chicken was raw. It was a shame because it looked like a good place for gluten free.

    I recently visited Pigeon Forge and decided to try Margaritaville. We ended up going twice during our trip. Our waitress was very nice and seemed to know about the importance of Gluten free food. I had the cheeseburger in Paradise and never got sick. Except for eating too much. Our second visit was a little different. Our waiter was nice and seemed to know a little about gluten free but he told me that someone would come and talk to me. What I am guessing to be the kitchen manager or someone along those lines came out and said, "so we have a gluten allergy / someone with Celiac Disease over here?" I said yes. he said " well you have no need to worry, just sit back and relax and we will take care of you. I will personally bring your food to you." i said thank you and we waited for our food. the food came out great and once again I didn't get sick other than eating too much. I plan to return during my next trip.

    Drunken shrimp skillet was very good! It came with gf bread and being able to dip it in the garlic butter sauce made me feel like a real person (I hope that makes sense) I also had the burger and fries, very good and even a gf dessert option that I'm currently too full to try but is a brownie and ice cream.

They also said they have a separate kitchen area where they prep all of the gluten free food. The waitress was very knowledgable and very kind in answering in questions I had!

    Had the grilled chicken sandwich. Best GF bun I've ever tasted, my partner was worried it wasn't GF it was that good. Our waiter Chris was very knowledgable and attentive, reassured me that he will have a word with the chef as I'm celiac. Loses one star as he came out and told me there was an issue with the fries and I couldn't have them, but I'm glad he let me know!

    Two members of our party have Celiac. One ordered a gluten-free hamburger with fries and the other ordered a chicken Caesar salad. The gluten-free burger was prepared correctly however the salad came with croutons on it. The croutons were not gluten-free. The manager was sincere in his apology, however the damage was done. The manager did comp us a gluten-free brownie for the mistake. Aside from the croutons, the gf burger was good and so was the service.

    Saw online that they have a gluten free menu, which was the reason my family decided to come here. Got to the restaurant and found out that they do not have a printed out version. Spent 20 minutes on my phone to pull up the menu online only to find out that I originally saw the menu for the NASHVILLE location. They have different menus for each restaurant. We payed for our drinks and left. Felt like a bait and switch. Probably could have eaten but I don't like giving my money to a restaurant that makes me feel like I've been tricked. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. gluten free or not. (only gave one star because I had to)

    This was my first time at Margaritaville. We came for the gluten-free menu. I was only disappointed that the brownie sundae on the gluten-free menu is no longer available--we were really looking forward to it. We got the volcano nachos to share (must be a shared item because it is HUGE). I was disappointed that there is a bit a gluten-free kids menu, I was going to ask for the Jr cheeseburger sans buns and pick apples or carrots for the side, but we decided to share instead (she's 7). We maybe ate half of the volcano, but I'm satisfied. The nachos were $15.99 and i know would have spent a lot more for less food elsewhere. I got the blended Who's to Blame margarita. $9.75 Not the place is done at regularly, but on vacation with few other gluten-free choices, absolutely.

    Excellent experience here, twice. Separate prep area for gluten free foods, and follows proper prep protocol (fresh gloves, utensils, etc.). Drinks are pricey - they trade off Buffett's name obviously - but you're in the tourist section of the harbor, so I lived with it. Fun fact: Jimmy's sister Lucy Buffett owns Lulu's in Destin. Check them out too.

    Food was reasonable and my celiac girlfriend didn't have any after affects from eating here, but we found the staff to be quite rude. We first ordered drinks at the bar, but after the bar staff couldn't understand 'coke' 3 times, he just didn't serve us the drink. When I went over after we ordered food (and forgetting to order the drink) I was told I'd have to ask the waitress and waited another 15 minutes or order it.

    We tried Margaritaville on the Vegas Strip last night. There is a good selection on the gf menu. Our waitress, Tess, caught my mistake of trying to order from the vegetarian side instead of the gf side. This small act saved me from a world of hurt. I'm so grateful for that. i ordered the volcano nachos. Do not order this if you are by yourself, you will never finish it. the portion is HUGE! And delicious. They have a dedicated fryer and are very careful & conscious when prepping food. I am so happy I have options when traveling. I am highly sensitive intolerant to gluten.

    We went here for our last night of our family vacation....Huge mistake! They had a 2hr wait but we were willing to wait due to the fact that my sister and two yr old daughter both have celiac disease and had heard this place was good about cross contamination. We had a large group of 16. 6 of those being children. When they took us to our table they split us up (which was fine) but both tables were dirty. When we asked if they needed to be cleaned a passing waiter said "That's as good as it gets." Really??? Ok so we cleaned the table and sat down. My sister and I made sure we sat at the same table to make things easier about the gluten free order. Unfortunately it took them 15 mins to take our drink orders. The other half of our group had their drinks before we could order ours. The waiter did seem knowledgable about gluten free options and was able to assure us that the food was prepared in a separate area. We didn't get our food until 45 mins later! When the food was brought out my sisters nachos were wrong and had to be fixed. My daughter's hamburger was also wrong but by this point she was half starved and I didn't want to mess with it. The waiter explained to the other table that he was normally a bartender but they were short staffed which may have been the problem that the service was slow and food was wrong but still when you worry that things have to be done right so your not horribly sick later than this service is not what you want. I don't recommend this place! To expensive for the taste of the food and the type of service! I can't recommend that this place is celiac friendly when I'm scared in the horribly prepared food and the shortness of staff that they didn't screw up our food and contaminate it.

    As a celiac vegetarian, it's hard to find options on most meat-based GF menus. Margaritaville is similar, but the server allowed me to get the chili on the side of my nachos so my boyfriend could have it instead. The nachos were great, and HUGE, and apparently safe from cross contamination! I really appreciated that the bartender was cautious when I ordered my drink, as he wasn't sure the watermelon flavoring was GF. The only hiccup was when our food was delivered all together – the server ended up dropping a crouton from my boyfriend's salad into the edge of the serving plate my food was on. I saw it immediately and removed it before it could touch my food, but it would have been a nightmare had it fallen into the actual food. I know the restaurant is busy, but this is why it's helpful to have a second server or manager deliver allergy-prepped food!

    Ordered from the gluten free menu the volcano nachos for an appetizer. Was told that the gluten free chips were fried in a different dedicated fryer. 15 mins from my first bite and I was in a full blown wheat/gluten ingest reaction not just a contamination. We had to leave and immediately return to the hotel room. Worst reaction I've had in 15 years of diagnosis. Would not recommended this to anyone with celiac.
