Good Value

Liked both the quality and variety; the prices for a hotel restaurant were very reasonable. The servers were very prompt and friendly.

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! I had it, along with some Gumbo for dinner a couple of nights! Breakfasts were quite yummy as well. Ask for hot sauce with your Gumbo if you like... More

We stayed at Margaritaville over the Valentine's and Mardi Gras weekend, and dined several times.
