    Love the cheeseburger in paradise! We told the staff to mark it for a good allergy and made sure they cooked the fries in a separate fryer I never got sick! We stopped here twice on our visit.

    Not celiac friendly. I got very sick ordering off the gluten free menu. I got the volcano nachos as an appetizer and the grilled chicken sandwich for my entree. I am not sure where it went wrong. Probably just cross contamination. Not worth it. Just don't go.

    Went here with my daughter who is highly allergic to wheat and is thought to have celiac for appetizers and to listen to music. The people were all very nice and They have a very small gluten free menu from which we ordered the shrimp which came with gluten free bread. It seemed to be a very popular appetizer as many people ordered the same thing around us. When the server came out with our appetizer they were unsure who it was for. Finally decided it was for us and gluten free. I questioned them multiple times about it and they insisted it was gluten free. Well as we were eating my daughter started to get an allergic reaction. We had to run 4 blocks in the rain to get Benadryl until we could make it to the emergency room. She also had a rebound reaction a few days later. She is now experiencing all the horrible symptoms that come along with a glutening and it ruined our trip to Nashville. Would not recommend eating here unless they change how they mark gluten free plates in the kitchen.

    It's the epitome of chain restaurants, but the food is safe and the staff is well trained. I've eaten at Margaritaville at least half a dozen times and have never gotten sick. My order was wrong once and the manager walked the 2 blocks to my place to hand deliver a safe version of my carry out order along with a sincere apology a promise to review the importance of detail in gf orders. Plus, I can actually have fries!

    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...)

    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.

    We knew this was mostly a tourist place but went to have the legendary nachos. They were excellent. Disappointing was that even though it was a slow night (off season), the service was pretty slow and our waiter uninspired. The burgers were yummy and the GF bun was good. I would try it again.

    Gf veggie burger on gf bun is terrific Fries are gluten free -IF you tell them you are celiac. Apparently they cannot use the salt from the kitchen (it's got something in it that makes the salt not gf?) but you can just salt them when they arrive at the table The table salt is regular sea salt If you are gf, they immediately bring the chef out to speak with you-they handle it very well Salads, meats, they have a dedicated gluten free menu and can make many items gf if you request AND they have a Gluten Free brownie!!! Fun atmosphere, right on then boardwalk Fun music, music videos, live bands and fun drinks

    As soon as we told the server our son has Celiac's Disease he went and grabbed the cook to come to our table. The cook explained how everything was done and we felt very confident after that. My son has the burger with a GF bun as well as GF fries - he loved it! The cook also explained how they make the Volcano Nachos GF but we didnt order any. All in all a great experience!

    Pretty good GF menu and they have a separate kitchen to avoid CC. Chef comes out to talk to you when ordering. Was disappointed that they no longer have fish and chips on the GF menu which I had read about in earlier reviews. I had the beef and chicken skewers with island rice and plantains. I eat Dairy Free as well as gluten free. Food was not the greatest, but still enjoyable and I didn't get sick, so we'll put this one in the W column!

    Ate here on Christmas day and was told they are now serving onions rings and that the fryer was no longer safe for celiacs. Still enjoyed the chicken sandwich, but with a side salad instead of my usual order of fries. I asked the server to make sure the rest of the staff knew to warn customers of this latest, disappointing development.

    GF menu at the front and when you inform the server you have an allergy they bring the chef out to talk with you. I have a shellfish allergy as well as being Celiac and the chef took good care of me. The fryer for French fries is a dedicated fryer, and the chef is very helpful. He brought my food out to me personally. I had the grouper sandwich and it was amazing!

    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.

    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.

    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)
