The server was very knowledgeable and took our medical allergy orders first. The manager brought out the meals. It was very good and my girls did not get sick! They had burgers on gluten free buns with fries.

We had an amazing experience here in July 2019! Our waiter was so understanding and accommodating to my daughter's Celiac needs. We started out with the Volcano Nachos for appetizer while the lady on stilts made her a balloon animal (too cool). For the main course, she had a burger on a GF bun and fries cooked in a separate frier. The best part was the GF brownie desert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped topping. Overall, it was a great experience with no tummy aches to follow!!

I asked the waitress if they had a gluten free menu and she replied they could make almost anything gluten free, but did not go into more detail. The service was very slow and food was mediocre. It did not make my son sick, however we will not go back.

I was pretty disappointed honestly. I used to go there because they had a gluten free brownie dessert. Well that is no longer on the menu. The burger was mediocre and the bread was dry. Bad waste of $50 bucks for two people.

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!!

They are NOT Celiac safe. Do not trust the. I am sick as a dog. I was told they have a specified fryer. And i was safe to order FF or Onion Rings. As i bit into an Onion ring, I thought about the breading. I spit it out and asked the waitress wheter the breading was GF. To my panic I was told Sorry No! TO LATE NOW. I will now spend the rest of my time in Vegas sick. I was offered the right to fill out a report and they wod not charge me for my meal.

They offer gluten free buns, but when my burger came out it was on a regular bun --- glad I asked if it was gluten free. Had to send it back and wait for a new one. Also... no dedicated fryers at the Las Vegas location so salad was the only side option. Waiter made me feel like a burden, will not return

Margaritaville is always an easy place for me to eat. They always have a dedicated fryer and gluten free buns as well as a gluten free menu. (Be sure to always double check on the fryer) I've eaten at the Las Vegas, Cancun, Cozumel and Nashville locations and they have always been accomodating to celiacs !! Highly recommend.

The staff double checked everything for me. I would recommend following what the menu says NOT online because some of their items they listed on the website were not GF at the restaurant. I ended up getting the tortilla soup with a side of rice and beans. A+ on soup, C+ on the sides. Margarita was great.

The chef cane out to explain they change gloves, prep my stuff with new cutting board and knives and that the fries were in a dedicated fryer. He assured me they take this seriously and as I celiac I did not have to worry. No worries here and amazing food especially the fries!!!! Ps if you stay at the margaritaville hotel you can get GF room service from this restaurant. Woo hoo

I think that this is a great choice if you only have celiacs and no other dietary restrictions. But the food seems a bit high in price for not being that great. Someone else in my party got the filet mignon which was $28 and he finished it in two bites so I say stay away from that at least since you will still be very hungry. But the volcano nachos were gigantic so if you can eat chili I can see those being worth it.

They have a pretty good sized gf selection. I had a turkey burger with a gf bun, I have Crohn’s so no beef. It was the best turkey burger I think I’ve ever had. Bun wasn’t too bad either. Started to come apart a little but nothing terrible and I was able to eat the whole think! Staff was also knowledge of what sides were gf.

Went in the off season, so not busy...with that said I had a cheeseburger on gf bun and fries (from the dedicated fryer). Both were very good. Not a lot of fries.

They have a separate gluten free menu. I ordered the pork ribs and asked to change the sides to broccoli and some black beans. (These were sides to other gf options and I was tired of fries by the 3rd day of eating at Universal) Beans were great! Broccoli had zero seasoning, so I added salt. Ribs were your restaurant quality St. Louis ribs, nothing that would blow your mind, but a good switch up compared to other meals. Sauce was good.

We visited Margaritaville twice while in Nashville. The first experience was ok, didn’t get sick. The second experience was PHENOMENAL! It was a crazy busy Saturday night and we were sitting in the bar. Our waitress took such great care to make sure my food was correct. I thanked her for this and she made such a sweet comment about nothing bad happening on her watch!

My husband ordered a GF bun for his burger - mine was regular. They brought both burgers on GF buns. His was grilled/burnt and mine was cold. The cheese wasn’t melted and lettuce & tomatoes were the only dressing. Horrible food!

One choice of starter.... guac and chips. That was nice nice. Two choices of main course. I got the salmon and rice and black beans. The rice was microwave rice standard and the salmon must have been cooked for an hour. Completely dry and practically tasteless. So little choice and not good quality food at all.

Excellent meal; best I've had for the entire week we've been in Key West! The service was great. The hostess, when I asked for a gluten free menu, asked if it was for an allergy. I told her yes and she immediately said she would have the chef come and speak with me. Not only did he come straight over to the table, but he has a wife with severe food allergies, so he's very knowledgable and answered all of my questions. He personally took my order and delivered my food! What a treat! I will definitely eat here again and feel comfortable doing so.

Menu lists Gluten Free selections and also calories. Server was knowledgeable and confidently stated that the French Fries were GF and prepared in a dedicated fryer. I had “Cheeseburger in Paradise” with GF bun and fries. Burger was good (GF bun was weakest part, but sadly they always are) and I really enjoyed the fries (awfully rare to be able to enjoy safely when dining). Margaritas were excellent. Very nice outdoor dining area for view of Chicago skyline, boats, and people watching. Nice place to eat or drink at Navy Pier.

I love love love margaritaville! I have been to a few locations, but this was my first time at the one in AC. The server got a manger who came to talk to me and then relayed what I needed to the chef. He came out a few times to clarify to be sure they were giving me a safe dairy free and gluten free meal. I had a pulled pork sandwich on a gluten free roll with fries and bbq sauce. I did misunderstand and expected the pulled pork to come in a sauce of some sort, but it was plain. So the server gave me bbq sauce on the side which I put on the sandwich myself. It was soooo delicious and I did not get sick! I also had a strawberry daiquiri which was safe and yummy too! I was so pleased with the service and understanding of allergies. I am hoping to try the breakfast here too before my vacation is over because I was just over the top happy with my experience!!!
