Ordered a Perfect rita and it tasted horrible so the waiter returned it and said they splashed it with club water because they ran out of lime juice so they got more lime juice and made a new one. Barely tasted any tequila. For $11 it sucked. We got the Gf nachos and it was all chips hardly any chili or whatever they use. Its was literally all chips with melted cheese & toppings in the top. I have been to Orlando’s multiple times and this one is very disappointed.

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.

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!

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.

You need to let them know that you need gluten free. There are small changes they can do to some dishes to make them safe. I had a salad and I had no problems.

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.

I asked the hostess when we walked in if they had a gluten free menu and she showed me on the regular menu that everything that has a picture with a wheat symbol is gluten free. She was knowledgeable. Our waitress was new and if she wasn’t quite sure of an answer she would go check and come back and let me know. They took it very serious even on an extremely busy Friday night that I have celiac.

Gluten free buns and super yummy dedicated fryer fries but the buns were not ideal. I've had many that were way tastier. I couldn't drink my Margarita bc it was way way too strong. My husband even had a hard time and you couldn't taste any flavors in them. Waitress was average. Very expensive for mediocre food and average service.

Love the cheeseburger in paradise! We told the staff to mark it for a good allergy and made sure they cooked the fries in a separate fryer I never got sick! We stopped here twice on our visit.

Not celiac friendly. I got very sick ordering off the gluten free menu. I got the volcano nachos as an appetizer and the grilled chicken sandwich for my entree. I am not sure where it went wrong. Probably just cross contamination. Not worth it. Just don't go.

Went here with my daughter who is highly allergic to wheat and is thought to have celiac for appetizers and to listen to music. The people were all very nice and They have a very small gluten free menu from which we ordered the shrimp which came with gluten free bread. It seemed to be a very popular appetizer as many people ordered the same thing around us. When the server came out with our appetizer they were unsure who it was for. Finally decided it was for us and gluten free. I questioned them multiple times about it and they insisted it was gluten free. Well as we were eating my daughter started to get an allergic reaction. We had to run 4 blocks in the rain to get Benadryl until we could make it to the emergency room. She also had a rebound reaction a few days later. She is now experiencing all the horrible symptoms that come along with a glutening and it ruined our trip to Nashville. Would not recommend eating here unless they change how they mark gluten free plates in the kitchen.

It's the epitome of chain restaurants, but the food is safe and the staff is well trained. I've eaten at Margaritaville at least half a dozen times and have never gotten sick. My order was wrong once and the manager walked the 2 blocks to my place to hand deliver a safe version of my carry out order along with a sincere apology a promise to review the importance of detail in gf orders. Plus, I can actually have fries!

Had a great waiter, Chris Rhodes, who made mult trips to check on my restrictions. Got the GF shrimp appetizer (lime-butter shrimp and veggies with GF toast strips). It was excellent, and I had no problems at all, which is great when you're travelling! Wish we had this restaurant near home! (I am GF and casein free, and am pretty sensitive to cross contact, but not diagnosed celiac...)

Not as good as the one in Niagara Falls where I remember a much better burger and fries. Appreciate the dedicated fryer but the crinkle cut fries were nothing special. My medium well burger was pretty pink. Also remember a better bun at the Falls. This one totally fell apart and I switched to eating with a knife and fork. Oh, and the cheese was not melted on the burger just kind of laid on top. The waitress was very attentive, but not much else to write home about.

I have been to the Margarittaville in Florida. I got the exact same thing in Nashville (chicken sandwich with fries) and it was just as good. Very happy with the food and consistency at different locations!

Service was slow. Food was tolerable, my sons burger was heavily seasoned and in edible. Buns sat under warmer and were hard. On the bright side, the great manager apologized and compensated our disappointing visit and we will not be returning.

Very knowledgable staff. They have a gluten free menu and were very aware of cross contamination. They may have changed the buns since the last reviewer went, because the bun on my chicken sandwich was great. Also... The nachos were great!

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.

My husband and I went last night and decided to share the nachos and a gluten free burger. I had eaten 1/4 of the burger and decided to ask if it was really gluten free. It wasn’t! And they “were sorry”. Ugh!!
