Needed lunch

We figured we needed "cheeseburgers in Paradise" while we were here. My husband had the BBQ burger minus jalapeños. I had the Rancho burger. Juicy good taste, a little spendy but it's Key West. I had onion rings. I prefer batter than breaded but they weren't bad. You eat here to say you were here.

I have good things and bad things to say. In hopes that management sees it to improve for future diners. We go to the Keys a lot! We live in Naples, Florida so we are not too far away. We were walking around after leaving Hemingways' House and were originally heading to Sloppy Joes...We felt the A/C saw it was... More

Always head to Margaritaville when in Key West> Great burgers and the blackened hot dog is the best. The Margaritas are fabulous, whatever kind you choose. Landshark beer hits the spot. Sometimes only so-son service. Will return whenever we are there, regardless.

We wanted to get a margarita from Margaritaville so stopped in for a drink and an appetizer. The Margaritas were very good but the tables were crammed in and I was sitting within a foot of two different people at the same time. I understand that this a tourist place but was just way too crowded. We always order the... More

We were excited to go to this Margaritaville during Jimmy Buffet day. Figured it would be a great place. Just a bar that serves food and has Jimmy Buffet memorabilia. The Margaritaville in Orlando Universal City Walk is much better with the Volcano. Food was good, service leaves a lot to be desired. Drinks were good and strong.

Unfortunately it doesn't live up to the hype. Food was not good, Expensive, and a long wait to pay. If you are wanting to pay for name this is your place. Otherwise I would suggest going to other places that are better.

Sad that this famous bar is so touristy. It really has no footprint of a local Key West establishment. Just too much marketing, hype, and expensive fare. Drinks were very pricey as well as the cheeseburger in paradise, and everything on the menu. Chocolate caramel shake was the highlight, which was delightful. Of course this was just a virgin shake.... More
