We walked in and somewhat stumbled out, after sampling some really excellent and diverse margaritas. The gentlemen working behind the bar were attentive and seemed to like their jobs. Appetizers were a welcome and tasty diversion between sips.

We waited for about 45 minutes for a table. The service was lackluster, maybe because we didn't buy bar drinks? We had to prompt for everything. Napkins, please. Silverware, hello? Drinks, can we please?? Refill? Don't count on it! A couple of the items came out wrong and were never fully fixed, at some point, you're hungry and you just... More

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
