Fun place to visit!

The margueritas are top-notch! The gift shop has a lot of great mementos, but their prices are sky high! The food we had was delicious!

Nice new menu items...tried the chicken quesadillas and the seafood chowder. presentation of the food has been kicked up a notch..food was nicely served and presented..server was pleasant. Dj Smoke played some great tunes and the Entertainment director kept the crowd busy! Prices on the menu are in US dollars..love the menu

We walked over the 7 mile beach for about 20 minutes to get to Margaritaville. The food was amazing and the service was awesome!

Stopped here at the end of a catamaran cruise. There was nothing special about the food. Not bad but not excellent.

$9 drinks and rude service. Try to sit in a beach chair and some enterprising young fellow has cornered the market for the chairs and you have to pay for them. There is some live music but if you want to stay they hassle you to buy more $9 fruit punch drinks in a plastic cup. Went 9 years ago... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and share your experience with us. You should NEVER be charged for a beach chair at Margaritaville. Unfortunately we have had issues with non staff members selling beach chairs and have taken steps to curb them. We have also made improvements to cleanliness or the last weeks. I know this... More

Good drinks, great music and beach atmosphere, but horrible, overpriced food. I had a dried out fish sandwich with a tiny sliver of fried fish on a huge roll. It was about $15.00. We had a few red stripes and laid on the beach chairs under an umbrella. Tip - The beach chairs were free, but the guys work on... More

Has sleazy air about it. Men sit on beach trying to pick you up while you are eating. Staff do nothing. Waiting staff rude and lazy. Food overpriced and poor.... More

We have been to Margaritaville several times, usually to watch sporting events while in Jamaica. That is usually fine because we drink beer and order some appetizers. We walked down one evening because we just wanted a quick bite. We ordered 2 vodka and cranberry cocktails and a chicken quesadilla. The bill was $39!!!! The drinks tasted terrible (the cranberry...
