Dinner here last week was good. There were 6 of us and we chose the restaurant because we figured that a trip to Key West needed to include it. We were happy with the food choices and they made several of us "virgin" margaritas. It's a restaurant with music a bit louder than we would have liked - and apparently... More

I'd skip this place and go for quality food elsewhere. Food is just okay. This is a tourist trap. They play Buffet videos on a big screen. Live music is late at night.

If I were a celebrity with my name attached to a dining establishment, this would not be it. The food was lousy overall. For starters the conch fritters were cold with practically no conch whatsoever. I've also had better Cuban sandwiches at roadside grocery stores on my drive through the Keys. The "jerk" chicken should be called "joke" chicken because... More

We dropped into Margaritaville on Duvall Street for a snack and ended up making a dinner of the nacho alone. It is humongous and the ingredients are layered throughout the nacho, so that the bites within the mound of chips are just as tasty as the ones on top. Fantastic. Just thinking of it makes my stomach growl.

You are right, the nachos can be a dinner on their own! We are happy you had a great visit and we hope to see you in for another order soon...come hungry! Margaritaville Management Team More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the Little White House a few blocks away. The staff was friendly and the Buffett memorabilia is awesome. Food was good we had the Jerk Chicken and the Turkey Club. I just wish they would expand (just a little bit) and move the bathrooms downstairs.

There are a few must does in KW and this is one of them: having a cheeseburger in paradise. It's a zoo at lunch due to the cruise ship traffic. On this trip, I also tried a margarita, and was disappointed. Tasted like cough medicine. Since it's Margaritaville, should have been a lot better. Started off with the crab and... More

We went here not expecting it to be great. We just had to have a "cheeseburger in paradise" while we were there. We were pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the burgers were! The conch fritters were some of the best that we had during our trip. The crab cake sandwich was excellent as well. Great service too. My only complaint... More

For $33 we had 2 Cuban sandwiches, a raspberry tea and a beer. This was our first experience with a Cuban sandwich and it was good.
