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.

Don’t bother! GF buns disintegrate as soon as you pick up the burger. Food expensive for what you get. French Fries came out cold 🙄

I went there when it wasn't busy (there was only 1 other table) and still got glutened. The waiter was nice, nothing wrong with the actual restaurant, it's just not gluten free.

Waiter & Chef were brilliant at listening to my gluten free requests & taking me seriously on cross contamination. Delicious grilled chicken & rice and my celiac daughter had the gluten free cheese burger in a gluten free bun & salad & fries done in a seperate clean frier! Safe place to eat. Thank you. 💞

Fairly awful. The options were burgers and corn chips. Ordered a cheeseburger on gf bun. Got a sad burger missing cheese, pickles and onions. Left pretty hungry.

Until recent changes, this was an excellent GF restaurant. They can no longer make GF fries or nachos, also said that the grill is cross contaminated. We were offered salads and declined. The Nordstrom Cafe saved the day!

We visited Navy Pier for the day and had lunch at Margaritaville. My daughter has celiac disease, so cross contamination is a big concern for me. After talking to the hostess, so gave us a gluten free menu with appetizers, sandwiches (Udi's buns), and even a dessert. It was loud and at a busy lunch hour so I was nervous. Tyrone was our waiter and everything was easy. They had GF margaritas and cider. We had chips and dip for appetizer. My daughter had a GF hamburger and I had the cheeseburger. They have a designated French frier. All was delicious. We ended the meal with a gigantic GF brownie dessert. It was fabulous. There was a mistake with my order, but Tyrone had it on the table within 5 minutes and comped it from my bill. Very lovely establishment.

This is my 2nd time and I was disappointed in the food. In all fairness, it was during the pandemic; however the quality of the food was not like what we have had here before. Portion size is good.

Went to eat with in laws who are not gluten free. They ordered an appetizer and it just so happened that I could have it too! :). My meal was really good as well! Very happy experience!

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. Server must have been new as they asked a more knowledgeable server for assistance but I was glad for the extra assurance! Did not get sick, burger was good.

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.
