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!!

I had the gluten free nachos and they were really good. It was huge and enough for two meals. They brought my food out separate from my family that does not eat gluten free.

Went in the off season, so not busy...with that said I had a cheeseburger on gf bun and fries (from the dedicated fryer). Both were very good. Not a lot of fries. Server must have been new as they asked a more knowledgeable server for assistance but I was glad for the extra assurance! Did not get sick, burger was good.

Our server was very helpful, the manager came out to officially take our order and deliver our food, and we had no gluten issues during our visit. My boyfriend is celiac and was able to enjoy his meal without incident. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food (both gf and non-gf) and we also had some amazing drinks!

My 12 year old daughter received full on gluten at this restaurant not just contamination. The taco salad which was requested "Gluten Free Modified" contained tortilla strips with wheat (they were not supposed to be added to the salad)! She was sick for a full 24 hours. The manager and her staff could have cared less about the incident when it was brought to their attention. Their excuse, it was busy and we didn't call a manager (none were available at the time)!! Please don't eat here. I would hate for anyone to get sick. :-(

The place never let's me down. Waitress well aware of gluten allergy and the new menu points out GF options with a wheat symbol vs having a separate menu. Had the burger on GF bun with fries. Fries are cooked in separate fryer. The waitress even came back and alerted my wife who got the veggie burger if she was ok with gluten since I ordered a GF entre a she said she was fine with gluten. The veggie burger is apparently not GF for those that may not know. Anyway, great meal, environment and staff. Always love eating here, the one in Orlando is great too!

Super friendly staff. Our waiter, Wesley, was great. As soon as I told him I was celiac, he called the manager out to our table. She went over everything, explaining how they have a dedicated frier and space. The condiments for their burgers are all squeeze bottles so no cross-contamination there! I am so thankful they care so much.

Not gf and vegetarian friendly. Two year ago it was and now is a major letdown. Called ahead and we were told the veggie patty was gf, asked the host on arrival and were told veggie patty was gf, server was nice but not knowledgeable of gf. They screwed up our nachos twice. They told us the veggie patty was NOT gf as they delivered all the other meals. Of the five items our table ordered 4 were incorrect. Complete waste of time to go here.

Totally disappointing. Ridiculous wait. Absolutely stiflingly hot with zero air movement in the restaurant. The food itself came after another ridiculously long wait and it was barely even warm. It wasn't even that busy. Pick another location for your dinner.

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.

I had the gluten free burger. I was really excited to see that they had the gluten free bun. The bun was dry and soaked up all the sauce. I'm allergic to gluten, had no allergic reaction. The burger was good just dry.

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.

I had the chicken sandwich and French fries. They use Udi's buns for the bread and they also have a dedicated fryer. They also said they have a separate kitchen area where they prep all of the gluten free food. The waitress was very knowledgable and very kind in answering in questions I had! The food was wonderful and I no sickness 😍😍

As a celiac vegetarian, it's hard to find options on most meat-based GF menus. Margaritaville is similar, but the server allowed me to get the chili on the side of my nachos so my boyfriend could have it instead. The nachos were great, and HUGE, and apparently safe from cross contamination! I really appreciated that the bartender was cautious when I ordered my drink, as he wasn't sure the watermelon flavoring was GF. The only hiccup was when our food was delivered all together – the server ended up dropping a crouton from my boyfriend's salad into the edge of the serving plate my food was on. I saw it immediately and removed it before it could touch my food, but it would have been a nightmare had it fallen into the actual food. I know the restaurant is busy, but this is why it's helpful to have a second server or manager deliver allergy-prepped food!

Great GF menu includes brownie sundae for dessert. Yum! GF burgers with buns (remind them to microwave the bun). Lots of choices on menu. Try the volcano nachos. Enough for 4 people to share. Great, fun atmosphere but noisy. (Hurricane goes off every hour- too funny). Always crowded. Call 2-3 days in advance and get priority seating.

Great GF place. Tim was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. he said they use Udi buns and have a dedicated fryer. My kids ate off the kids menu which is rare. One got the hamburger with a GF bun and the other ordered the fried fish which they were able to sub for some grilled fish! their servings were huge. Even had sweet potato fries. I had this amazing fish sandwich with slaw. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for GF dining.

The servers are always great about gf. I always get the taco salad and have never gotten sick. I do go without the tortilla chips as I'm not sure on the cross contamination with the fryer there. But their menu is marked well for gf and we love it.
