    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.

    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.

    Just came back from supper tonight. Was very worried, have had bad experiences lately... this location made me feel safe. 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.

    Recently the Hard Rock Cafe has come a long way in becoming more gluten-free friendly. They understand celiac here and my server was sure to tell me that the fryer wasn't dedicated gluten free before I even had a chance to ask. The salad that came with my burger was fine, but nothing special. The burger itself was very tasty and I am a very sensitive celiac and I didn't get sick at all.

    Had a beautiful ribeye steak with gluten friendly fries made in a designated fryer and green beans. This was an amazing experience from being greeted by the hostess who was very cheerful her name is Nicole and our server was outstanding as well. Our servers name was Kimberly and was very attentive and made sure that my food allergy was communicated very clearly to the chef. There is no way to tell right away if there has been any cross-contaminationBut so far I feel very confident. If there is any change I will edit my comment. Very upbeat and friendly environment. P.
