    The staff is very knowledgeable, our waitress even had the chef come out and ask about my allergy and wanted to be extra careful with my food because of my celiac. Love it!!!

    The normal menu denotes the gluten free options. There were quite a few options for entrees and sides. The waitress was sufficiently knowledgeable because it was on the normal menu. My boyfriend didn't get sick afterwards. It is a little pricy and our waitress wasn't very attentive, but I would recommend it because the view was nice and the other waitresses seemed better than ours.

    I've always been anxious about traveling due to the fact that I have celiacs and am afraid there won't be many options to eat. I'm SO happy to say that Margaritaville takes extreme care for people who have food allergies! The chef came out and showed me the options and I didn't get sick! Dedicated fryer for fries and has a nice choice of options for people who have gluten allergies!

    GF modifications all over the menu! I told the server I have Celiac and food allergies and the chef came out and asked what I would like to eat and how he would make it safe for me. The best Cheeseburger and Fries I have had in over a year.

    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 !

    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

    Drunken shrimp skillet was very good! It came with gf bread and being able to dip it in the garlic butter sauce made me feel like a real person (I hope that makes sense) I also had the burger and fries, very good and even a gf dessert option that I'm currently too full to try but is a brownie and ice cream.

    Went there twice during our stay because few options for GF food. First time was ok. Server knowledgeable and helpful. Second time was a disaster: waiter brought out hamburger and tho it looked just like my partner's non-GF burger, he insisted it was gluten free. I almost ate it but doubting it was a GF bun returned it to the kitchen. After waiter doublechecked, realized they had mixed up the orders. Subsequently a burger was brought out on a gf bun. It appears their staff could use better training for customers with allergies.

    Slow service, despite telling server repeatedly of my food allergies, food still arrived wrong. My husband was done eating before they brought my replacement which was still wrong but at least not containing foods I am allergic to. Would not go back.

    Excellent food! I had the volcano nachos which were gluten free and amazing. Be prepared to share though they are huge, I split them with 3 other people and there was still enough left to be my entree. The gluten free brownie with Heath bars and ice cream was excellent as well. The staff was very gluten free friendly and I got no symptoms!

    Like his sister's "Lulu's" chain, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville does a great job with GF, Celiac-friendly dining because the siblings have a family member with Celiac. They have a great menu and we ran into no trouble with cross contamination. BONUS: Margaritaville even has a GF dessert!

    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!!!

    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.

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!

    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.

    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.
