After teens and grandson were settled in for the evening the 4 adults went for a couple drinks. Service was great, drinks were better. Had Margaritas and a bloody mary all were great. We would go back here for sure.

We thought this looked like a great restaurant to try for dinner with our family. We sat outside and had a nice view. We were there during happy hour so we ordered some margaritas and appetizers. For a place called Margaritaville, one would assume that the margaritas would be good. Not so. Very watery and lacked flavor and the second... More

I REALLY hope the management reads this post. Ok, So I meet a friend here, who points out that the drink menu was so sticky that your hand sticks to it. We made a joke of this, but really? Come on. It's not that difficult to wipe down a few menus to get rid of any sticky stuff that is... More

Great restaurant in a beautiful location- ideal for over looking the water! The pitchers or margaritas are beyond tasty, and the food is excellent too! The entertainment is top notch, we spent many nights at this restaurant!

I expected something a little different I guess...It's older inside than I thought...and very loud...I could hardly talk to my hubby. But we were there as a little date nite. It would be great for family and big friendly groups ! The steak nachos were good, so were the margaritas.

A group of us visited this restaurant on the spur of the moment on a Friday night. There were six of us and I was sure we would have a long wait, but was pleasantly surprised it did not take long to be seated. It was around 7 pm and there were lots of people in the restaurant enjoying a... More

Went for a rainy day lunch. We have been her many times before - but this time we wondered if we were inconveniencing our server who was either hanging out with other servers in the bar. Waited forever for our order to be taken, then were pretty sure based on timing that she forgot our guacamole until reminded. I had... More

The waitstaff is very friendly, busy and still friendly, thats a rare combo. Drinks were prompt and the view from the tables was spectacular.
