We had a great experience! Gabe the manager came and talked to us about my daughter’s additional dairy allergy and went in the back and double checked all ingredients in the GF bun to make sure her dish would be both GF and DF. She ordered a chicken sandwich and I ordered a BBQ Cheeseburger off of the GF menu options. They have a dedicated frier for their GF fries. Everything was excellent.

Awful service and management!!! The kitchen crew’s lack of knowledge on food allergies and the poor service is a direct reflection of the manager’s (Lauren) leadership! DO NOT EAT THERE IF YOU HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY!!

This is more than the order being messed up. The kitchen crew should have known that placing a hamburger on a regular bun is not acceptable for an order with a gluten allergy in which was ordered with a gluten free bun. The manager treated us as if we were disgruntled customers that were upset about an order being messed up rather than Lauren’s kitchen staff serving a gluten-allergy-customer a hamburger on a regular bun. This could have been avoided if the staff would have just come out and stated that they didn’t have a GF bun, rather than serving a regular bun and not even mentioning it!!!!! Obviously, the manager Lauren and her kitchen crew does not understand food allergies nor do they take it serious!!!

The kitchen was out of gluten free buns so the kitchen crew put it on a regular bun and if I had not inquired about it, we would not have been notified until it was too late!!!! This is unacceptable!! The kitchen crew/chef should be knowledgeable about the items on their menus and especially about allergies. I understand that some restaurants do not serve GF options. However, this restaurant clearly offers gluten free options on their menu.

My daughter has celiac and ordered a burger and fries. They have a dedicated fryer. She was so happy. Best burger and fries she's had all year. Food was delicious and waiter seemed to be very knowledgeable about our need to prevent cross contamination. Waited till next day to post review. Will eat here again! She did not have any problems!

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!

This place was awesome, I have very severe celiac disease so going out is always a gamble. Well right off the bat the manager reassured me that the staff knew about the disease and how serious it is. He also sat and went over the whole menu with me and recommended what he felt was safest. I got a burger in paradise with fries, the fries are the only thing that go in that fryer as they have separate fryers for all other fried foods. It is very pricey but the amount of food that you get is amazing. P.S they have a gluten free brownie sundae that is off menu that is to die for!! I felt 100% safe eating here. Also ask for patty she was the best!

Celiac friendly. I’d recommend the burgers. I made a mistake and I ordered a salad. Didn’t get much for the price. It was like $0.20 worth of lettuce and half a chicken breast.

But - the GF burger my son ordered looked much better.

The menu is marked but we asked for a manager to be sure. The chef / manager came out and was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was good and the chef came out to check on us again to make sure we were happy and to reassure us about the food being gluten free. With this kind of service and attention to detail we will definitely eat here again!

Waitress was a little shaky on her Celiac/GF information but I asked for a Manager. He came right out, explained everything they do in the kitchen, educating the waitress, as well and I felt comfortable ordering. Was told they have a separate section in their kitchen for GF prepping. I did not get sick. Will go again.

Don't bother with this location. We have been to other locations and had great experiences. Server not knowledgeable about gluten free procedures or even if fryer is dedicated or not. Managers did not follow their own procedures regarding speaking to guests with celiac disease or allergies. Waited too long to get average, cold food. Spend your money somewhere else in Pigeon Forge.

This is probably one of the best GF experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. Our server's name was Jasmine, and she went above and beyond to ensure that my meal was definitely gluten free. Margaritaville has a great gluten free menu to begin with, including GF buns for their burgers/sandwiches, and they also have a dedicated GF frier - which the fries were amazing! I had the Volcano Nachos as an appetizer, and the Cheeseburger in Paradise with fries. I so wish I could have tried their GF brownie, but I was so full! I would go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat.

Unless you get a burger, there are very few options. I was very disappointed. It was so loud that conversation at our table could not happen. The ribs were dry and horrible. The waitress never refilled water. Did you ever eat hard pepper coated ribs with nothing to drink. I paid $26 for my meal and left hungry. Never again!!!

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.

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.

I recently visited Pigeon Forge and decided to try Margaritaville. We ended up going twice during our trip. Our waitress was very nice and seemed to know about the importance of Gluten free food. I had the cheeseburger in Paradise and never got sick. Except for eating too much. Our second visit was a little different. Our waiter was nice and seemed to know a little about gluten free but he told me that someone would come and talk to me. What I am guessing to be the kitchen manager or someone along those lines came out and said, "so we have a gluten allergy / someone with Celiac Disease over here?" I said yes. he said " well you have no need to worry, just sit back and relax and we will take care of you. I will personally bring your food to you." i said thank you and we waited for our food. the food came out great and once again I didn't get sick other than eating too much. I plan to return during my next trip.

Two members of our party have Celiac. One ordered a gluten-free hamburger with fries and the other ordered a chicken Caesar salad. The gluten-free burger was prepared correctly however the salad came with croutons on it. The croutons were not gluten-free. The manager was sincere in his apology, however the damage was done. The manager did comp us a gluten-free brownie for the mistake. Aside from the croutons, the gf burger was good and so was the service.
