My group of 5 ate at Margaritaville on 8/1/15. It is right downtown on Duval Street so is in the middle of the action. There was a short line when we arrived but it moved very quickly. The food was ok but I was hoping for slightly better taste for the price we paid. Service was good.

I am a huge Buffett fan. This is my second time visiting this location and we have been to many other locations as well. My tween loves the burgers here so we always have to stop when we see one. The service was fine and the atmosphere was great but the food was way overpriced and it felt like a... More

smelled like vomit in the front of the restaurant where people are being seated. Probably from someone at the bar the night before since the tables were on the bar side. Decided we didn't want to stay to long b/c of the smell so we ordered and appetizer since we were starving and got out of there pretty quickly.

The food is good, but seriously overpriced for what is essentially a burger joint; you're definitely just paying for the name. I suppose it's worth going once.

We stopped in at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville for lunch/dinner after touring the city on a very hot and humid day. When we walked in the hostess could tell we were exhausted, hot and hungry. She gave us a great table on the side of the restaurant, not in the middle of all the confusion. We ordered the nachos, and of... More

Service was excellent, food was fine, but pricey, even for Key West. We had more fun in the Margaritaville shop next to the restaurant.

I went there with my friend and was pleasantly surprised by the live entertainment they were offering that night, the band was awesome along with their amazing food!
