    My server knew what to do when i mentioned that i was celiac. The food was ok, way overpriced, but guess thats what you find at a touristy place like this. atmosphere was great, music not too loud, was very enjoyable experience. No reactions from food whatsoever.

    I think I may have come here on an off day. Burger was on gf bun and was okay, but certainly nothing special. Might try again another time. There are other restaurants in the area that I prefer for gf.

    We had a delicious dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pigeon Forge last night. We have multiple food allergies in our family, including gluten, dairy, eggs and tree nuts. My daughter has Celiac Disease and is extremely sensitive. She cannot eat gluten or tree nuts and had their honey mustard chicken sandwich on a gf bun. My son is only gf and had a cheeseburger on a gf bun. I had their pulled pork , but no bun due to multiple food allergies (gluten, dairy and eggs), with their Carolina bbq sauce. It was delicious! Our server was very attentive and advised against the fries as she could not guarantee the fryer was safe...she said sometimes it is shared. We had the steamed broccoli instead. Our server told us they have protocols set up in the back to reduce cross contamination risk. My kids and husband shared the HUGE gf chocolate brownie sundae for dessert. We ordered it without nuts due to the nut allergy. They thoroughly enjoyed the sundae, which easily can feed 3 people. We were very happy with the food and service and no one was sick last night.

    They have gluten free buns. Ordered the fajitas with corn tortillas. Super sensitive celiac and had no issues. The manager discussed my order with me and brought it out personally. The nachos as someone else mentioned are not safe for Celiac per the manager the chips are fried in a shared fryer.

    Are here today based on previous reviews. Our 17 y/o has Celiac and is very sensitive to gluten. They have a gluten free menu. But make sure to ask HOW the food is prepared because if it's fried, it may not be gluten free. We let our waitress know about his needs and she had the manager and chef come out to the table. The chef was very know and made excellent recommendations for our son and he he went with the burger with bacon on a gluten free bun. They bake the fries. The check said that they take about 18 minutes so he went ahead and got them started while the hubby and I decided on our meal. The potato skins are deep fried so the chef microwaved 2 for our son and then put them in the oven to melt the cheese. Our son loved them and said that his gluten free bun was delicious! Best gluten free bun he's had....and he's sooooo picky! Would HIGHLY recommend and we will definitely be back! It's nice to be able to add another restaurant to our list of safe places we can dine as a family! And they have a gluten free brownie served with ice cream but he was so full that he didn't get to try it.

    We had a fantastic experience. Our server Hannah was very accommodating and we were confident in her suggestions. The chef ( wish we knew her name) met us at our table to talk about options for our daughter with celiac. She assured us the food would be prepared safely. Our daughter ordered a burger with gf bun and baked fries. She said the fries were the best she's ever had. We also ordered the gf brownie with ice cream for dessert. It was huge!!! The look on our 8 yr old's face was priceless. Hard Rock provided excellent service and food.

    Food was good and had a gluten free menu, but I'm rating this Cafe lower because it doesn't have the selections that every other Hard Rock I've been to has, for example no gluten free buns here. The choices were more limited than normal.

    Left before eating as I was concerned at their attitude. They asked how sensitive a coeliac I was. He said if I was sensitive the manager would need to speak to me to make me aware it would not be possible to guarantee my food would be free from contamination. Coeliac is coeliac so would not recommend.

    So let me begin by saying my 2nd experience here in two days was awesome. Day 1 my waiter blatantly told me there is nothing I can eat there except for a hamburger with a gluten free roll. Well I didn’t want that so I said “no salads”?, he said “oh yah salads are fine”. He got me so nervous that I had a dry salad. I was miserable. I was staying at the hard rock hotel so I called and complained. They told me to come back in the next day which I did. A manager came right over and assured me there were a ton of gf options. I had a bone in rib eye, mashed potatoes and string beans. It was phenomenal! If you go here just tell your waiter that you’re gf and that you’d like to see a manager. In the end it was a great experience and I will definitely go back. I’m glad I didn’t let 1 uneducated waiter ruin it for me!

    Went here for lunch and had a wonderful experience. There isn't a gluten free menu but the server knew exactly what I could have. We had nachos, chicken fajitas and parmasean fries. When they brought our food to the table the server jokingly said, "I hand removed all the gluten for you." So I knew they got the memo on my meal needing to be gluten free. It was all delicious and I don't think I'll eat for the rest of the day I'm so full! No reaction at all.

    I dread going to Vegas because it seems like it's impossible to find a safe place to eat. After stopping by many restaurants to see if they were ok to eat at, we went with Hard Rock Cafe. I was hesitant to eat there after reading some reviews, but they had a dedicated frier so we gave it a try. WE WERE SO HAPPY WE DID! We had a great overall experience. We sat outside with a great view of the strip, I ordered a smoothie that was AMAZING, and then proceeded to order a cheeseburger with a GF bun, and GF fries. Everything was so good! Our server was excellent, very knowledgeable and super friendly! And the best part? No reaction. This will be our go to place in Vegas now. Side note: they did get rid of GF menu, not sure why, but server was able to point out what things were GF or could be.

    Every time I have visited here it has been super. Given gluten free menu and manager came down to talk us through and said she would be sorting our meal. Only ever got the burger on the menu though as they are so tasty. The fries are super too. Even the table sauces tell you which Heinz products are gf. Would definitely recommend to others and will be back.

    Had a late night, night cap. It is one of few places that we could easily find for quiet place for drink and late snack after 10pm. A lot of restaurants are closed during the week at that time. Hard Rock has great gf options. We discovered their gf in Barcelona. Glad to see them in downtown Chicago and that they were iron late compared to other restaurants. We enjoyed the our late night snack and drinks.

The waitress handed me the gluten free menu, and the manager came to talk to me about my options. They have a separate fryer for French fries (and they were awesome!). Hard Rock uses Udis bread for the sandwiches and burgers. Had burger, fries and brownies for dessert. Portions were big, could not finish. Very good experience, thank you Hard Rock Myrtle Beach!

    I've been to several Hard Rock locations and always had a great experience. This one has a sign on the door saying ask for the gluten free menu, but when I asked the host said they didn't have one, but was able to point out a handful of gluten free items. Our server was more helpful and asked to check if the chips for the nachos and the potatoes for fries are in a dedicated fryer, and they are, so all the menu items I was used to seeing on the gf menu were still available. Just seems like maybe they don't get a lot of gluten free customers, but the food was still very good.
