We ate here during our vacation at Universal Studios. Our server was very knowledgeable and we got a separate menu of all of the available gluten free options. Our daughter got a burger with a gluten free bun and fruit. Her food was brought our separately from the rest of our food. She has celiac and had no issues after eating here.

Staff was very knowledgeable about celiac and complying with strict GF protocols to prevent cross-contamination. They even made a special batch of GF nachos with fresh prepared tortilla chips made in the dedicated fryer. Fries are made in a GF fryer. Buffalo Wings were amazing.

The menu was clearly marked and the server was very knowledgeable and careful. I got the cheeseburger with bacon and a Cesar salad. Both were delicious and did not give me any reaction. Also DELICIOUS.

The staff handled my celiac allergy very well. Waitress was knowledgeable. Best news ever— they bake their fries so I could finally eat GF fries!! Gluten free menu is good and offers big portions. I got ribs and pulled pork— very delicious!

Unfortunately they got rid of the GF brownie sundae. Now they only gave ice cream and milkshake which still are good choices. But our waitress was so wonderful that she asked the team to put together 3 GF choc chip cookies in a sundae! She also asked if I was GF sensitive or a real allergy. She was fantastic! Such a great place that we frequent very often. Had GF burger with fries cooked in separate fryer. They have a great GF selection. Always a great restaurant to visit at CityWalk. Kudos Hard Rock Team! Love the atmosphere as I can actually share a nice GF dinner with the family. Thanks for keeping a GF menu!

My waitress was great. They have a separate menu but I mentioned I wanted something on the main menu prior to seeing the gf options. They were 100% able to make my chicken sandwich gluten free, I was able to have gf fries, and all of the food was amazing.

The lady who took our order was great! She was super acomidating and let me know exactly what I could eat. I had a kids cheeseburger with fries (I have a small appetite and a 1/2 lb burger didn't sound great). The fries are cooked in a separate frier and the burger comes plain, minus the cheese, they give you bottles of condiments to put on it.

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.

Came in for breakfast. Have to say very impressed! My son got a breakfast sandwich (udis roll) and my niece had an omelet with toasted udis roll. Breakfast potatoes are gf as well as the bacon AND sausage. No gif breakfast menu but Birdie (our waitress) got manager and both were amazing! 10 stars of I could first the service alone!

This was one of my best gluten free dining experiences in the last 5 years! The waitress let me know that the gluten free menu is for gluten sensitivities and told me what my options are for being celiac. So there aren’t a ton of celiac options but the burger I had was yummy! And the fries are from a dedicated fryer which is always a luxury!

They don't have a gluten free menu, however the waitress informed me that are slowly making their entire menu gluten free, with current gluten free sauces and substituted items. I had the barbecue chicken with fries which was nice but nothing special, but I did not get sick which is always a good thing.

I was confused when we stopped in for a burger, because our experience was not the same as others. I would not classify Hard Rock in Maui as celiac friendly, no dedicated fryers or cooking areas (at least not according to our waitress), no gf bun options, no gf menu at all. All of their BBQ sauces have soy sauce, even the beans that top the nachos have wheat. Very few options without extreme modification. The only reason I give them 2 stars is because our waitress was trying so hard to make something work.

Highly recommended! The manager, Scott, came to my table and discussed the gf options with me. He waited for the waitress to explain her that the ordered burger needs to be gf and that they have to make gf fries. Very good job! The food was tasty! And in addition they have two hard cider.

Manager recommended the Mac and cheese. When I asked if the pasta was gluten free he said oh oh no that's right. Don't get that. Then he said they had a dedicated fryer for allergies. 1.5 hours later still no food. The fryer broke. No one bothered to tell us. They do have udis gf buns so the burgers technically are GF but I would not trust contamination. My daughter is celiac and I just can't risk it.

Manager came out to go over menu. Lots of choices but no dedicated gluten free menu. Can't have nachos but fries made in separate area. Amazing Udi's gluten free bun. Manager even gave me one to take for free. A little loud but great food and service. I recommended they make gluten free flags so you know your food is correct. It was hard to tell the rolls apart (but that's also a good thing).

Hard rock does not have a gluten free menu. However, they have options for people that are gluten free. Almost all of their sandwiches/burgers are gluten free, as long as you ask for a gluten free bun. Make sure to ask your server if the fries are cooked in their own fryer, and if they are, get them unseasoned. Their BBQ sauce is not gluten free. Also, their service was slow, but the food was very satisfying considering we just came from a long day of not eating.

Great service! No gluten free menu but just tell the waiter about your allergies and a manager comes out to discuss your allergies. He gave me all the options for myself and my two boys 4 and 6. They have a separate grill and fryer so we enjoyed gf fries. It was a great meal and no one had any issues afterward.

I was recently at Universal Studios and was unable to eat anything within the park. As we were leaving we decided to try the Hard Rock Cafe. A manager was sent over to take my order and informed me that all food was made on a seperate grill. Also things like french fries were made in a seperate frier. I was able to eat a fantastic meal with no worry. I would highly recommend going to the Hard Rock the next time you are in Orlando

They have a gluten free menu. I had a cheese burger and fries. The bread was actually alright! Overall a tasty meal.

Reassuringly the server brought it over and said Gluten free burger and fries. I hate it when they just put it down without mentioning it.

I think you could eat here and not be worried.

Just thinking back I don't think there were many vege options. Maybe 1 or 2 items. So not ideal if that's you.

The staff was very serious about gluten contamination and asked if I was celiac. They stated it would take longer which I was great with. The food was so good and I didn’t get sick. The ambiance, decor and music was fantastic. I was reluctant going since it’s a chain and, well, we are in Hawaii, but I am so glad we did.

Traveled back in time, HRC has the flavor of the 80s. I don’t favor rock music, but the food was very good and gluten free - and that’s what matters (unfortunately).
