Limited menu, but good service and food. Check to see if outside dining is available - we loved that. Kelsea was a great server.

While staying at Margaritaville Hotel, it was most practical to have breakfast at F&L's on site. The breakfast menu was broad with somewhat exquisite choices. I had a seafood omelet with shrimp, crawfish, crab -- and it was great. There were no sides, etc. The portion side was ample, and was adequate without sides. Expecting a very high price with...

This restaurant is very good. Variety with menu items. Great views. If the weather is nice don't pass up sitting outside and listening to the ocean. We have stayed at the hotel a couple of times and always eat breakfast here and usually a couple of dinner meals. We had no issues with the service.

We were there Gumbo festival weekend and met the Lead Souz Chef and his award winning gumbo. The Sunday Brunch proved worthwhile with some YUMMO French toast.

The Cajun influence here makes for the most amazing sea and creole combinations- and the beignet approach brings in another level to French Toast! Do not miss the chef plated brunch specialties here.. Changed every Sunday, and the bottomless Mimosas just make it the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning!

Ate breakfast here on our first day of staying at the Margaritaville but the man serving us was so grumpy it made us not return for the rest of the week. The food was good though, just disappointing that they do not cater for kids at all. No kids menu.kids cups etc.

The service here was great. My husband is a jokester and the young lady who took care of us, Kelsey, was able to roll with the punches. He had ahi tuna and I had coconut shrimp and both were wonderful. The desserts are perfect and large enough to share. Their spinach/crab dip as an appetizer was perfect. We had lunch... More

Wait staff during breakfast hours are pretty rude and lazy, you are made to feel as though you are a burden to them by eating there. Evening staff is better by a bit. Restaurant is quite small inside so expect a wait. Drinks were good (margarita's) but you would expect that since it is at the Margaritaville Hotel. I would... More

While staying at the hotel, I was able to sample many of the menu items for many of my meals. I highly recommend the Blackened Shrimp served with Fried Green Tomatoes!
