Worth the Stop!

Definitely a must to check out this Key West staple. Surprisingly, not as overpriced as other local stops which makes me worth the while to stop and get your land shark!

Enjoyed our visit to the original Margaritaville. Good service and good atmosphere. Unfortunately Jimmy was a no-show.

If you like fun, but noisy and crowded restaurants, then this is the place for you. It is definitely a destination restaurant, with locations all over the the country. The food is good for what it is (burgers, nachos, etc), but the Margaritas are outstanding! In fact, have one of their house specials and you won't care what the food... More

Conch fritters were amazing, I had fish taco's which I get every time we go here and as always they are amazing, the sauce is so good, my husband got the Jambalaya and he loved it as well.

Eh, I can now say that I've been to the original Margaritaville, but that's all I really can say about it. The place was maybe 25% full and the atmosphere was kind of bland. It kind of felt like I was in any old theme bar. Maybe I just got my hopes up that I was going to see a... More

Stopped her with several friends while in port. The waitstaff was very friendly, the drinks were amazing, and the food was fantastic! You have to try the Lava Lava shrimp appetizer if you like shrimp. It was sooooo good we are still talking about it a month later! The huge variety of specialty drinks will make it tough to pick...

Visited here for lunch while in Key West as locals recommended it. Very popular and busy place but we were seated quickly and our server took our order shortly after. Our food came hot and within a reasonable time. Enjoyed the meal and the experience. Obviously a hot spot for Jimmy Buffet fans.

The bathrooms actually made my son in law sick to his stomach its obvious the health dept hasn't visited in some time. Our waitress was nice enough but there is absolutley nothing good to say about... More

We've visited many Margaritaville's but it was nice to finally visit the first and original one. Quite nice with the old feel and of course the margaritas are great and the music always good.

This location is smaller than some of the other Margaritaville's I've been to. Seating was crowded, elbow to elbow. The ceiling was in made to look like a hurricane. The bathrooms are a long way..signs say 2 miles,...it's not quit that far but it is down a couple halls and up a flight of stairs. I don't know what they... More
