If you have a soy allergy as well as gluten avoid. They do not understand. We discussed extensively and they still covered my hamburger plate with fries that had been cooked in soy. I drank my tea while my husband are his meal. Disappointing.

Dedicated fryer. Wait staff did great. Would recommend for all celiacs.

Glad there is a place in the river walk we are absolutely sure about.

I love Margaritaville. The food is excellent, and they even have a dedicated GF fryer, so I am able to eat fries!! Lots of good GF choices. The waitstaff is very considerate. They aren't allowed to bring GF food out on the same tray as the regular food. It is always kept separate. There aren't a lot of safe GF places to eat in the Riverwalk, so I actually ate here twice. Plus, the music is good too!!

They no longer have a dedicated fryer, so stay away from fries, chips etc. Had southwest salad with grilled chicken along with a few margaritas. Nima tested negative and did not get sick.

Delicious food. Celiac friendly. I had the bison burger with a gluten free bun and fries. They have a separate fryer for gf. My waitress was knowledgeable. I didn't get sick after eating here.

The waitress knew what celiac disease was and she assured me the fries are cooked in a separate fryer. The buns tasted like Udi’s but I didn’t confirm. Meal was good. Menu is clearly labeled.

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. ❤

I asked if they have dedicated fryer, chef came out and said he did for fries, and made sweet potato waffle fries for me in that fryer. They made sure we were taken care of!

My mom and my sister are celiac. They ordered off the gluten free menu. They brought the food out separate from the rest of our families and both my mom and sister are satisfied and full.

Delicious, they brought our food out separate from my other groups non gluten-free food. Buns warm so it doesn't crumble. I had the grilled chicken sandwich, with fries. My daughter had the volcano nachos, they are huge and delicious. They also have gluten-free brownie sundae. Very happy to have a good meal.

This is a must go whenever we are on vacation in Myrtle beach. After the waiter takes your order, The manager comes out and verifies it. He makes a tag to give to the kitchen that lets them know it’s an allergy and to change gloves, etc. The gluten free orders come out with a separate person. Never have had an issue after eating. Decent selection and dedicated fryer! Only think is it was a 1.5 hour wait on a Tuesday at 4:00. So put your name is first and then go and visit all the shops!

We got the nachos as an appetizer. They were absolutely delicious!! They had a decent amount of gluten free options. I ordered the original burger on a gluten free bun and sweet potato fries as my side. delicious burger and the bun was very good! I felt a little nauseous after, but I probably just ate too much.
