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.
No allergen menu which is crazy, but waiter knew quite a bit about what was safe. Margaritas were good 😁
Waiter was helpful and although they didn't have a dedicated menu, they do provide GF bread and buns.
No longer have expanded gf menu. Disappointing...
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!
Closed until April!!
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.
Navy Pier location - Dedicated French Fry fryer. Server could answer all my questions and everything was correct for a Celiac diet. Ordered GF cheeseburgers, fries and fish sandwiches.
In general: the food was okay. I spoke with a manager and decided on the gluten free burger on Udi's bread and apple slices without the caramel (because we couldn't veridy if it was gluten free). My child had a gluten reaction to something. milk? lettuce? tomato? beef patty? Who knows...? *I did call to let them know what happened and they did promise to figure out the glitch so future patrons will be safe.
AWFUL. Please do NOT eat here if you have Celiac. I was so excited to see their separate gluten free menu with plenty of options, but I couldn't have been more disappointed. They had the set up to be great, but the execution was terrible. I ordered the gluten free version of the nachos and what came did not include half of the items listed on the gluten free menu. When I asked the waitress about these missing items she blamed it on being the gluten free version. She told me sour cream is unsafe because it always contains gluten. It was $16 for tortilla chips, salsa, and shredded cheese that wasn't even melted. I decided on the burger and was told the fries would be made in a separate fryer. I got very very sick during a special occasion. I would not recommend this to anyone with Celiac or serious gluten sensitivity. Not to mention anyone else because the service was awful.
Thank you for having a gf restaurant in a land of pseudo gf restaurants. Tourist areas seem to have a lot of places that say they are gluten free, but they know little to nothing about what gluten is, cross contamination, or why we are so concerned about it. Margaritaville gets it. After frustrating attempts at other places, I always know I can get a safe meal here! I may just eat here every night of our next trip and save myself the headaches.
I ate here twice during my recent visit to Las Vegas. I ordered the cheeseburger, on the first visit I was informed by my server that I am unable to have the fries only a side salad. On my second visit, the server seemed a little bit dosey when it came to Gluten free and he offered me the fries. I ordered the cheeseburger with a side salad again to be safe. When the burger comes out it will have a stick to signal it's Gluten free. I did not get I'll after eating here but I would recommend to Be Cautious when ordering sides if you have Coeliac disease.
Ate here several times this week while on vacation. They were MUCH improved over my last visit a couple of years ago. Restaurant was recently renovated and has a new menu which very clearly calls out GF options. GF buns available and a dedicated fryer for fries! Chef visited our table on each visit to explain how the food would be prepared to avoid cross contamination. Very impressed with their focus and diligence. Highly recommend.
Nachos as appetizer, many meal choices, and brownie sundae for dessert!
Bummed. We've had great experiences at the one in Universal Studios Orlando but this one was a disappointment. We'd previewed the online menu to get an idea of our order only to find they had a "brand-new menu!" The fact that their gf dishes are designated with a tiny wheat shaft is probably pretty telling. Oh well. Proceed with caution.
kudos to Margaritaville! Exceptional service to gluten-free people. I eat in very expensive restaurants and never has the chef come out to speak to me. I had a hamburger with the gluten-free bun and fries which came from a dedicated fryer. I also had a angry orchard beer which is gluten-free. Everything was delicious !
Excellent food. Dedicated fryer.
Great experience for Celiacs - good gf options, cook came out on his own to assure us that they take it seriously and change gloves, etc. Waiter was fun, too. The fish sandwich was good, but a little dry - ask for extra sauce. Or get catch of day.
absolutely wonderful experience eating here! i told the hostess upon our arrival that i had celiac and needed to be gluten free. she let our waiter know and he was just great. the manager even came to our table to make sure everything was okay and asking if we had any questions. the food was delicious (get the fish sandwich yummm!) and i am not sick :)) ps they have a dedicated fryer (but i wasn't feeling like fries so i had a salad)
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.
Gf veggie burger on gf bun is terrific Fries are gluten free -IF you tell them you are celiac. Apparently they cannot use the salt from the kitchen (it's got something in it that makes the salt not gf?) but you can just salt them when they arrive at the table The table salt is regular sea salt If you are gf, they immediately bring the chef out to speak with you-they handle it very well Salads, meats, they have a dedicated gluten free menu and can make many items gf if you request AND they have a Gluten Free brownie!!! Fun atmosphere, right on then boardwalk Fun music, music videos, live bands and fun drinks
As soon as we told the server our son has Celiac's Disease he went and grabbed the cook to come to our table. The cook explained how everything was done and we felt very confident after that. My son has the burger with a GF bun as well as GF fries - he loved it! The cook also explained how they make the Volcano Nachos GF but we didnt order any. All in all a great experience!
Pretty good GF menu and they have a separate kitchen to avoid CC. Chef comes out to talk to you when ordering. Was disappointed that they no longer have fish and chips on the GF menu which I had read about in earlier reviews. I had the beef and chicken skewers with island rice and plantains. I eat Dairy Free as well as gluten free. Food was not the greatest, but still enjoyable and I didn't get sick, so we'll put this one in the W column!
Ate here on Christmas day and was told they are now serving onions rings and that the fryer was no longer safe for celiacs. Still enjoyed the chicken sandwich, but with a side salad instead of my usual order of fries. I asked the server to make sure the rest of the staff knew to warn customers of this latest, disappointing development.
GF menu at the front and when you inform the server you have an allergy they bring the chef out to talk with you. I have a shellfish allergy as well as being Celiac and the chef took good care of me. The fryer for French fries is a dedicated fryer, and the chef is very helpful. He brought my food out to me personally. I had the grouper sandwich and it was amazing!
I ate here Sunday with my family. I'm the only that has to eat gluten free they don't. I explained to my waitress that I have Celiac disease she told me after I place my order the chef would be out. The chef came out and they made my burger and French fries gluten free. Will be back.
Pleasantly surprised by the level of care taken with my food once I mentioned I have Celiac. I spoke with the manager who brought out their chef to detail how things are handled in the kitchen. Had the catch of the day (salmon), which was delicious!
We had a great experience here. Had the fish sandwich topped with coleslaw and great jalapeno tartar sauce. Typical Gluten-free bun but the fries were great. The fish was grilled but tasty and substantial! Staff was helpful and knowledgeable. Would return!
The waitress, Jessie was very helpful explaining the gluten sensitive features of the menu. They have dedicated fryers and segregated prep space. The manager came to the table and explained their food preparation procedures. The food tasted great.
We were happy to see they had a gluten free menu and had plenty of options. We got an order of the volcano nachos and I got the cheese burger in paradise on a gf bun. The nachos were HUGE and amazing! The burger was average but the fries (made in a separate fryer) were perfect! We left there so full I never wanted to eat again but I didn't get sick at all so mission accomplished!
Our first time eating here and we really enjoyed it! The atmosphere can be a bit noisy, as a heads up... choose your seating wisely. Menu-wise, they have dedicated gluten-free AND vegetarian menus! Such a plus. The green beans (vegetarian option) impressed us the most. Not overly salty or buttery, just a refreshingly balanced seasoning.
