Description: Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, once only a state of mind is now a state of being and a landmark on Duval Street. Margaritaville Key West embraces the mythical world defined by the insightful lyrics of singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett for over three decades. Characters both local and from prose and poem create an entertaining atmosphere that brings to life the search for the legendary lost shaker of salt. If you are looking for the real Key West experience, you'll find it here with the island-inspired menu, those famous concoctions and live music worthy of the name.

We have been to several of Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Cafes and I think this is the best. It is smaller than most but has a great comfortable atmosphere and the bartenders are very good. I also have to credit the person in the Margaritaville shop who went up to the warehouse to get the size I needed in the shirt... More

Key West was a stop for us on our Cruise and it was so worth it. Margaritaville's food was amazing as are the magarita's! Bring the check book though, it's a big $ but, for a tourist place, the food was tasty! Service was awesome too!

I almost write good reviews. Had very good experiences at Paseos, Santiago's Bodego, Fogerty's and Louie's Backyard. But here we had overcooked mahi and undercooked cheeseburger. Sat at bar and it smelled like vomit. Went to a table where it was better, and server was very nice. Atmosphere was touristy and cheesy. Better places on Duval. Sorry to have to... More

I prefer places that are original to KW. It is exactly what you would expect. Nothing original or exceptional but you know exactly what to expect.

went here when we first moved to the Keys. nothing but a tourist trap with very mediocre food and little ambiance. there are so many other great places on Duval to go to, do yourself a favor and skip this. all it has going for it is the name.

This is a good place to visit if u are a Jimmy Buffet fan. We have eaten here before so we knew what to expect. The night we visited there was no band playing just pumped in Jimmy songs amongst the noisy dinning crowd. The band adds to the atmosphere. We were just looking for a quick meal and ordered... More

We loved the atmosphere of Margaritaville and the bands there were just great, but you can't talk to your table mates much during your meal because the music is so loud. If you want to listen to music and eat/drink but not socialize this is your place. We also danced which was great fun.

Another stop on our Key West bar crawl. Delicious drinks and great service. Would not think of going to Key West and not stopping at Margaritaville and this visit did not disappoint. Got a table right on Duval Street and some great pictures. Love it!
