They are all awesome!! Food was great! We always get the volcano nachos with grilled chicken!! Justin G was an outstanding server! Have a gluten allergy, he was knowledgeable, and explained process. A manager brought our food out!! We have never gotten sick from cross contamination here!!! Always our go to while in PCB!! ❤
I ate here twice on my recent vacation. One dinner, I had a grilled grouper sandwich on a gluten free bun with french fries cooked in a dedicated fryer. The other time I had a blackened grouper sandwich on a gluten free bun with french fries cooked in a dedicated fryer. Both times the waitresses were attentive and rung in my order as an allergy. They told me it would take longer for our food since the chefs would change gloves and utensils. We did have to wait a little longer for our food, but it was well worth the wait.
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.
Waitress was very helpful and understanding regarding my Celiac's disease. I ordered the Cheeseburger in Paradise on GF bun and fries. They use a dedicated fryer for the fries and they're always GF! It was very good and I felt "normal" being able to eat a bun with my burger!!! Recommend!
Great gluten free nachos, burgers, and fries (dedicated fryer). There are other options but we havent tested anything else. Service generally depends on the time of the year as it is a tourist location. Their GF buns are the best we've had with the exception of a few GF bakeries.
Margaritaville has a gluten free menu, and their servers don't look at you, panicked, when you speak of celiac. This location is no exception. We have eaten here twice with my son who has celiac with no problems. Fun atmosphere, kid- and adult-friendly. Although we did not eat them on this trip, they have GF nachos that are amazing, as well as a GF dessert optiin-- I believe a brownie. Safe bet.
Yum! Delicious place in Panama City Beach! I thoroughly enjoyed their Cheeseburger in Paradise on a gluten free bun (not many places offer gluten free breads) & was overjoyed to learn that the gf cheeseburger was the same price as the regular! Way to help people feel like you care about their allergies! Had a few issues ordering sides though. I ordered sweet potato fries, the waiter came back to say the manager said they weren't gf, then came back again to say the chef said they were. Anyway, at the end of the day, I thoroughly enjoyed the fries and burger. Thanks, Margaritaville, for a delicious gf meal!!
There was a gluten free menu and the staff seemed knowledgeable. Unfortunately I did not eat anything else before and did get sick. I had the chicken sandwich on gluten-free bun with gluten-free fries. My feeling was it was the fries only because they looked identical to my husband and sons but that is just a guess.
They have a GF bun that looks so good I wasn’t sure it was! Did not get sick and my burger was amazing. So many options and listed right on the menu. Very impressed and love that they have bread, finding burgers and sandwiches are difficult!
My 12 year old daughter received full on gluten at this restaurant not just contamination. The taco salad which was requested "Gluten Free Modified" contained tortilla strips with wheat (they were not supposed to be added to the salad)! She was sick for a full 24 hours. The manager and her staff could have cared less about the incident when it was brought to their attention. Their excuse, it was busy and we didn't call a manager (none were available at the time)!! Please don't eat here. I would hate for anyone to get sick. :-(
The people were very nice, but manager came over to the table and said they had nothing safe for a Celiac. They can't guarantee no cross-contamination. I appreciated their honesty, but had to go somewhere else.
While they have a separate gluten free menu and staff who are fairly knowledgeable about their supposed gluten free options and policies, this place is not celiac friendly. I got the kebabs, which is a very easy to make gluten free option, for lunch here and had horrible stomach pains and problems for most of the rest of the day ( a bad thing to have happen when you’re spending the day in the park. The two star are just because they have the separate gluten free menu.
The staff was knowledgeable on gluten free options and provided a gluten free menu. They have a separate kitchen space to cook gluten free and a separate fryer for the fries & chips. I do wish the gluten free items had a separate plate than the regular food items
Have celiacs and was glutened here. Got the taco salad and it was nasty. Truly regret going here.
Absolutely amazing food and service for a celiac ! I visited here twice during our 10 day stay in Orlando and I couldn’t rave more about it . I told them on arrival I had celiac and was concerned about cross contamination etc - the server was really understanding giving me a gluten free menu & explaining that they take allergies and celiac very seriously there . She said she could have the chef come out & speak to me if I’d like and he can run through the process of how they make it safe. They even have a dedicated fryer for the gluten free chips & separate area in the kitchen . Food was so delicious- well worth a visit whether you are a celiac or not.
Gluten free bun was good. Cheeseburger in paradise on a gluten free bun!
It was draft weekend so they were super busy but, the waitress said they’re very conscious of their GF not being near other food and they have separate friers for their tortilla chips and fries! The nachos were so good! And they have GF buns.
They are not overly careful they served me their chicken sandwich on a regular bun and said it was gluten free. Sent it back and they sent back the same sandwich and just pealed the bun off leaving all gluten bread in the cheese.
Wonderful! The chef came to the table, asked about my sons allergens, and assured us his food would be cooked safely with no contamination (dedicated GF fryer). He never got sick and everything was delicious.
Not a huge GF selection, but the GF burger is really good.
They are no longer in town but a few miles down where the cruise ships dock. You can’t get in unless you have a pass to get back in one of the ships. The Guard had sympathy for me because I had four celiac children and couldn’t find anywhere else to eat he let us in. when we got to Jimmy Buffett we were told there is nothing celiac safe, that they risk of contamination is very high. We ended up leaving very frustrated and sad because we’ve always had good luck with Jimmy Buffett’s.
Very experienced with Gluten Allergy- they have a menu which states the mortification that can be mad. I had a fish sandwich with fries and the gluten free bun. - 3 days later im still excited to have found this gem.
The place never let's me down. Waitress well aware of gluten allergy and the new menu points out GF options with a wheat symbol vs having a separate menu. Had the burger on GF bun with fries. Fries are cooked in separate fryer. The waitress even came back and alerted my wife who got the veggie burger if she was ok with gluten since I ordered a GF entre a she said she was fine with gluten. The veggie burger is apparently not GF for those that may not know. Anyway, great meal, environment and staff. Always love eating here, the one in Orlando is great too!
No gluten free menu. Music was blaring so loud the waiter couldn’t even hear me. We got up and left.
Ate there twice while in San Antonio. This is one the Rive Walk. I was leery since one had reviewed it, but with a dedicated fryer, it was worth a shot. Spoke to the cook, both times, and was assured my food would be gf. They even brought my food out separately! I have the ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’ without the bun, but it was still delicious. They do have a dedicated fryer, & the fries were yummy! Just be sure to speak with the cook, and note the wheat symbol on the menu for the gf options. ❤️
Had an awesome experience - our servers name was Jared and he was SUPER awesome and even had the chef come out and speak to me. As a celiac with Type 1 I highly recommend - ask for Jared!! He rocks!!!
I was with my family in Vegas and my wife is a Celiac And Type-1 diabetic. We explained this to the server twice when ordering. He said no problem and she had the chicken salad listed as celiac friendly, 2 hours later she was vomiting which dropped her sugar and she ended up in hospital. Not a good scene, we know there is always a risk but really? She could have died but was ok. Thank god for travel insurance since we are Canadian, the hospital bill was $4700.00 for the ambulance and 6 hour hospital stay.
No GF menu. Waitress couldn’t tell me what was GF. So I picked catch of the day (seemed safest) which comes with peas and rice and veggies. I had her go ask about this menu item. She said peas and rice were not GF. No substitutions. Mashed potatoes also not GF. So I said, fine, just bring rice on the side and my husband can have it. Took 1 hour to get our meal (not busy) and my fish came on top of the bed of rice she said was not GF. This place is very unsafe and does not care about allergies. Horrible service too. 40 minutes to bring our kids drinks. Gratuity is included, so they just don’t care about getting things right or service. Big problem for people with food allergies.
Only about 6-7 items to choose from but was delicious and loved it last night. Paying for it today! Hurting. Something must not have been gluten free or cross contaminated.
I have celiac disease and I loved the service here, the best I’ve ever had. The chef himself came out to my table and wrote my order down on a designated allergy sheet and made sure he knew what allergy I had and how to properly cook my order, I had a fantastic experience.
The menu is clearly marked which items can be gluten free. They are careful in the kitchen, new gloves etc. I got burger, fries & margarita no problems. I will eat there again.
I ordered nachos because of a review I read here even though it was not marked as Gluten Free. They prepared it with shredded cheese instead of queso, it was delicious and I didn’t got sick.
Lots of gluten free options!! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
This place was awesome, I have very severe celiac disease so going out is always a gamble. Well right off the bat the manager reassured me that the staff knew about the disease and how serious it is. He also sat and went over the whole menu with me and recommended what he felt was safest. I got a burger in paradise with fries, the fries are the only thing that go in that fryer as they have separate fryers for all other fried foods. It is very pricey but the amount of food that you get is amazing. P.S they have a gluten free brownie sundae that is off menu that is to die for!! I felt 100% safe eating here. Also ask for patty she was the best!
There weren’t a lot of options, however the waitress was very knowledgeable and patient with my questions. We got the gf versions of the nachos and cheeseburger. Both were very very good. I had angry orchard to drink while the others in my party had regular beer.
Our waitress was very knowledgeable. They only have two entrees listed as gluten free on the menu but they have gluten free buns and a dedicated fryer for the fries. The chef modified the taco salad for me and the waitress said they can modify most dishes.
Great service here and I felt safe. They have an entire gluten free menu. I enjoyed the steak dinner and a margarita. My server double checked with the bartender about what my safe options were. He was friendly and patient with my questions even though it was very busy.
Staff is knowledgeable and cares. Just be specific about cross contamination being an issue as some of the gf items on the menu are cross contaminated.
