Being our first trip to Destin we relied heavily on Trip Advisor recommendations. After dining at Margaritaville I left wondering if I was at the same restaurant as some reviewers. First, we may not have seen the crowded time being here in early May. We were seated as we requested, on the second floor balcony overlooking the harbor where we... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and decided on nachos and two margaritas. The nachos were nothing more than a pile of chips with cold cheese melted on top and the margaritas were worse. Completely watered down and tasteless. Service was friendly but would not go back. Very expensive for what you get.

View good. Saw dolphin right from the patio. The atmosphere was nice. The waiter was good. Everything was clean and in order. The food/drinks were very average and food needed salt. We were shocked at the prices considering the avg food. I wasn't impressed and felt I paid for the location and name instead of my food or my experience.... More

Can't beat the location. Nice deck/patio overlooking the marina, crab island, and the bridge to Ft. Walton Beach in the distance, it seemed like a great place for lunch. I was wrong. It's not that the food was terrible (it was probably closer to average) and it wasn't that it was horrendously priced (it was high, but I knew that... More

This is obviously a chain and lacks the personality of an owner run restaurant. View is fantastic and the burger is simply ok.

Great view, the drink was good but the shrimp trio...not so good. It's over priced and the sauce...what were they thinking?

Margaritaville is a okay place to eat for the price, service was extremely slow as they got our family's order wrong about 3 times. However the view from the deck was terrific. I say you should go here once and then go to a different restuarant, such as Mcquires across the street.

The view here is so nice of the fishing boats. Food was ok. Just like a regular chain restaurant. Our server was great. I would eat here again.
