Fun!

We stopped by mid-afternoon for drinks and an appetizer. If you choose a mixed drink I would go with the Margarita, this IS Margaritaville. We chose the nachos which were a very generous portion for the price. They also tasted very good. They were the best nachos I had at a bar in a long time. The... read more

It was our first visit to Key West and we thought it would be good to stop by Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. We stopped by for dinner and there was no wait The menu is fairly large but we just wanted a drink and a salad. Lots of options for margaritas but we opted for the original. We're kind of picky...

We went in for a late lunch/early dinner. The food was good, if a bit expensive for what you got. The service was satisfactory. This isn't the best restaurant I have ever been to, but hey, you are in Key West and this restaurant (and song) are part of the scene. I am glad I went, although I doubt I... More

On my first visit to Key West I just had to stop at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. It is a cute place and at 2:00 on a Saturday was bustling but there was no wait. The menu is really pretty big but since we were on a cruise we just wanted a drink and a snack. There is a good selection... More

We had to eat at Margaritaville in Key West and the food was fabulous. It's always crowded but we did get right in and seated. The atmosphere is great with music, videos and decor that sets the "Parrot-Head" tone. It's a must see while in Key West.

Had to stop in, since it is a touristy place. It wasn't busy at all and we had a great meal. I had some of the best coconut shrimp I've ever had. The cheeseburger was really good too! Service was excellent and my margarita was a bit pricey but very good.

The music is vintage key west as is the environment and decor, with big screens of all the singing; yet despite the packed in tourists, it didn't seem like anyone was having a grand time; maybe later in the evening when the alcohol is flowing, as if such a thing would happen at Key West
