Almost got glutened. Brought a salad with croutons even after we made it clear that we had a sever allergy. Luckily I spotted one before eating. Staff seemed to not even care and did not want to change my meal. I don’t recommend. (I have been in the past and it was fine but they were very careless this time)

We had a pretty good experience here. The waitress was nice and it was good to have a reliable meal I was fairly confident was safe. AC sucks for GF as far as my research could tell, so Margaritaville was pretty solid.

Dedicated fryer for fries (though you might have to ask). You can get all their burgers with the usual Adi’s GF bun. Just a couple options beyond that though for entrees. They do clearly mark which items can be made GF.

They offer gluten free buns and a dedicated fryer for fries. Waiter took order and highlighted on the sheet GF. Fries and cheeseburger were both good. They did have paper straws which I heard have gluten so be aware. Didn’t get sick

Good experience, items gluten free are clearly marked on food menu. Would be nice to have marked gluten free drinks but ingredients are listed which makes it a little easier. Good burgers and fries. Separate fryer. Good place to go for a burger and margarita. Friendly bar staff.

I love love love margaritaville! I have been to a few locations, but this was my first time at the one in AC. The server got a manger who came to talk to me and then relayed what I needed to the chef. He came out a few times to clarify to be sure they were giving me a safe dairy free and gluten free meal. I had a pulled pork sandwich on a gluten free roll with fries and bbq sauce. I did misunderstand and expected the pulled pork to come in a sauce of some sort, but it was plain. So the server gave me bbq sauce on the side which I put on the sandwich myself. It was soooo delicious and I did not get sick! I also had a strawberry daiquiri which was safe and yummy too! I was so pleased with the service and understanding of allergies. I am hoping to try the breakfast here too before my vacation is over because I was just over the top happy with my experience!!!

They are not overly careful they served me their chicken sandwich on a regular bun and said it was gluten free. Sent it back and they sent back the same sandwich and just pealed the bun off leaving all gluten bread in the cheese.

I ate here last night. My waiter new about gluten free and assured me they take it seriously. They do as I had no issues and it was nice to have fries as it’s rare to find a place with a dedicated fryer. I just had the cheeseburger and the GF bun was good. Nice to have a place that’s safe for Celiacs in AC. We need more. Thanks.

Staff was very knowledgeable, many gluten-free options, dedicated fryer for the french fries. We ate there for dinner and breakfast and the chef came to our table to go over breakfast options and ensured us she would handle best to avoid any cross contamination. I was fine after both meals and really enjoyed the meals. Would definitely go back!!

Server was knowledgeable about celiac and told chef about my allergy. She was going to bring the chef out but she said she could just tell the chef what I was interested in and he would tell me if it's good to go or not. I ordered nachos and they were great, with no problems.

I just finished eating a meal here and had an awful experience. The staff originally came out and seemed very knowledgeable on cross contamination and even sent the chef out to speak with me and take my order. However, when my food came out my sandwich had the same bun as all of the other normal sandwiches. I did not feel comfortable eating the food they brought me when they replaced the incorrect order and definitely will not be coming back.

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!

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!

I have Celiac disease and ate there with no problems. The french fries are made in a separate area. Our waiter, Cliff, was very knowledgeable about how the gluten free meals were prepared. He even came around to check on me to make sure I was feeling ok. I highly recommend.

We have been lovers of Margaritaville for years, but tonight was a disappointment. They have a new menu and lots of things are no longer GF (nachos) except with modifications. The chili in the nachos is now made with beer. Our server was great, but even the ritas were not good. I am pretty bummed as this was must whenever we come to Orlando. They still have GF buns/ dedicated fries so that’s a win. Just really bummed about all the changes.

Food was good and gluten free options were marked on the menu but my server had absolutely no knowledge of gluten free or what I needed to avoid. If I hadn’t been to a Margaritaville before and hadn’t asked the right questions, I would have definitely gotten sick here. There is a shared fryer at this location so definitely avoid the fries if you get a burger.

I was so pleasantly surprised to hear they had separate fryers! As a Celiac, obviously I was in heaven. I had a burger and sweet potato fries and it was fantastic. I would go again when at the mall.
