    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!

    good place for a burger or nachos. Has dedicated fryer for fries. Staff is very well trained. Loses a star for having an amazing dessert on the menu but not carried anymore. Talk to Wyndham scammers enough to get free drink ticket with 25 purchase Update: 2 out of 3 good experiences. third we got onion petal fragments all over food. Nobody knew how it happened but we got a comp meal...

    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.

    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.

    The menu seems great. I am having the nachos (amazing) without the queso (queso not gluten free). The chips are in a dedicated fryer. However if you want to eat rooftop and want anything other than nachos it is not available. This is why I gave 3 stars. After waiting 15 minutes I found this out. Frustrating but now we know 👍 should have asked.

Unfortunately, I got sick and was not as active in the work conference I was attending due to this. Can't say someone else might not get sick as everyone is unique but I have CD and did!

I got the catch of the day which was grouper, it came with a choice of mango salsa or lime butter sauce, I got the mango salsa. the fish had no flavor and was burnt on the outside but was alright, it comes with island rice which I thought tasted weird so I didn't eat it and green beans which were pretty good. it's a nice place to eat with a fun atmosphere but I don't know if I'll go back.

    Had such a great experience here the first time, I went back later that week on my vacation for a second meal. Told the waitress I was Celiac and she assured me everything was prepared separately even the fries. Fries were absolutely delicious and the cheeseburger had a GF bun so no lettuce wrap! It was great. My only complaint was the second time I went back, it was pretty late at night and my waitress told me they didn't have the GF menu available that late. I told her we would have to leave then. She went and checked with the manager who said he would only be able to do a cheeseburger and fries (again) . Was hoping to try something new the 2nd time, but it was still delicious regardless!

    I am extremely gluten intolerant and always have anxiety about eating at restaurants. I read reviews about Margaritaville in Las Vegas and was very excited about the gluten free menu. I brought my group of friends to the restaurant and explained my food issues to the server. Usually I expect servers to be somewhat reassuring, however he was not reasurring and seemed rushed and therefore unpleasant. I ordered a gluten free burger, and was really excited about it. However when the food came, on my plate was a patty with a thin piece of cheese and a stack of lettuce. The waiter told me then that the kitchen was out of GF buns but that I could just wrap the patty in lettuce, which is not my cup of tea. I said no thank you and ordered a grilled chicken dish with rice and seasonal veggies instead. My replacement food took about 20 minutes to arrive. I watched everyone else eat. The rest of my party had finished eating and most of their plates had been cleared by the time I got my food. When the food came it was awful. The chicken was seriously overdone - so much so that I had trouble cutting it. The "seasonal vegetables" were rubbery, oily and flavourless string beans and the rice tasted like it had been cooked the previous week and re-heated. After reading so many positive GF reviews I was extremely disappointed.

    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.

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.

    Food was marginal. Our waitress knew about the gluten free menu, but didn't know anything else. We had the nachos, a cheeseburger, a chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries between us and we both got glutened. :(

    Delicious grouper sandwich and fries from a dedicated fryer that didn't make me sick! It was such a great meal!

    Good selection on the GF menu including entrees, burger, fish sandwich, and some salads. Food is decent, I enjoyed the NY strip much more than the grouper which didn't taste fresh. I was disappointed with the margarita though!

    They didn't have a gluten free menu available, but the waitress was able to tell me what was gluten free, including drinks. I had the Volcano Nachos and they were super tasty. And I didn't get sick so that's a bonus! I was told their fries are gluten free too as they have a separate fryer.

    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)

    Had the taco salad from the gf menu and got sick. Don't think the chips are gluten free. I felt my stomach swell up immediately.

    Had the taco salad and felt sick afterwards. Don't think it was gluten free. The chips made me feel very bloated. Don't think they are gluten free.

    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.

    Fairly awful. The options were burgers and corn chips. Ordered a cheeseburger on gf bun. Got a sad burger missing cheese, pickles and onions. Left pretty hungry.

    Nothing spectacular here. Same old, same Old fast food fare and gift shops. Not really much to eat. Burgers without buns and potato chips. Don't eat their nachos. They are not celiac friendly.

    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.

    Stopped here for lunch a few days ago. Had a great experience. Staff was knowledgeable about gf and were very accommodating - no eye rolls or acting like it was a burden. Had the Cheeseburger in Paradise with fries. It was pretty decent - not the best burger I've ever had, but it was a good solid, SAFE gluten free meal. Would recommend.

    My family and I went here for dinner despite another person saying they were contaminated. We did Not share his experience. We had a wonderful meal! I had the fish sandwich on a gluten-free bun and the French fries. ( Yes they have a dedicated fryer) We ended up eating there twice while in Gatlinburg and both times had a great experience with knowledge staff who were very attentive to our gf needs.

    Very accommodating to our food allergies. Out server was nice and checked on several items for my boys. They are gluten, dairy, and soy free and I am gluten free. They each had a child's hamburger plain with no cheese. One had lettuce on his. The had apple slices for sides. I had the chicken with mango salsa. They loved the burgers and my food was excellent.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I've been living with a pretty severe wheat allergy for close to 10 years now and have had a wide array of restaurant experiences some not so great but never truly bad until eating here. I am typically very skeptical of trying new places but I was in Destin on vacation and this is one of the few places that seemed to have enough good reviews for me to try it. I wish I hadn't. A few hours after eating something from the gluten free menu I was feeling pretty bad; not horrible to the point that they botched the whole gluten free thing but more like a cross contamination issue. I would suspect the fries as the culprit but can't be totally sure. I wish I could say that I had a great meal and got sick but alas I can't. The meal itself was pretty bad. I had the flat iron steak and somehow it came out tasting repulsive. Some of this can probably be attributed to it coming out rare (like still mooing rare) when I asked for medium but not totally. It tasted horrible either way. I would have sent it back to the kitchen had the waitress come around before everyone else in my party finished their food. Which brings me to the service portion of of this review which can pretty much be summed up as appalling. We saw our waitress maybe 5 times and she was very unfriendly throughout. So just to sum up everything I've said... Gluten Free friendly: no Food quality: terrible Service: appalling Needless to say I won't ever try any of the restaurants in this chain again. Maybe I just had a bad experience and all the stars aligned to create a truly awful time but I've shared my experience and you can decide if eating here is worth it.
