Might be a chain, but fun atmosphere, friendly waitstaff, and great food...

This place was an oasis for us last year after a morning of shopping downtown. We ordered the Volcano Nachos, and whoa!! Plus it was fun to people watch those partying on the patio, and the staff is funny and friendly. We were back this year, and guess what? Volcano Nachos, take 2!! Still so... read more

Our third visit to this one. Never a disappointment, we know we'll like it. Wait staff very fluent in English, with the standard menu. Great seating right on the water, with a live band on this Sunday evening. You'll be happy with the food too, but don't expect to pay less than at home. That's the compromise, one of the... More

We attended during a busy festival and reserved a table in advance. Our server was attentive and friendly. Food was as could be expected for a chain, good quality for what it was. Drinks were large and strong. A band played, they were excellent. Overall great memories were made here.

After coming to Cozumel aboard a cruise ship if you need some actual edible food in a friendly environment stop in here. It is a bit loud, but it is Cozumel! Good food, a bit on the pricy side, but a good option for the unadventurous eater.

We just ran in to get some conch fritters and a couple of raspberry margaritas. This location doesn't have the fritters so we got fried calamari instead and the raspberry margaritas. It was all excellent and our waitress was really sweet. I know it is American Touristy, but it is always so good every time! Beautiful view of the port... More

We ordered traditional mexican dishes and they were sooo good. (Quesadillas and fajitas). We did not wait too long to get the food. The drinks took longer than expected. The havanas and bananas drink is AMAZING. Food kindof pricey but that was expected. They accepted pesos or US dollars. Servers were friendly.

We were looking for a day of some shopping, eating, drinking & some beach time, this covered everyone's wishes. We were in town with our cruise ship for a few hours. The atmosphere is all about having a fun & relaxing time with your friends / family, I would not say the food was great, we could swim while enjoying... More

We had some time before our excursion so we decided to go to Margaritaville for some Coronas. Our waitress was Lola and she was super upbeat and fun! She told us about the free water toys and snorkeling so we decided to give it a try!

This is a small JB's at the pier, with a nice open bar & outside dining. We didn't eat, but did have a drink. Had great service.
