100 + Southernmost is Margaritaville !

I had thoughts of visiting this landmark everytime tasting a Mexican Margarita. House No 400 is the southernmost in Key West. 500 in Duval Street, you're at Margaritaville. The island inspired menu in the musical atmosphere created by Jimmy Buffet is the mind blowing offer . While Jasmine... read more

The biggest downside to my visit was the fact that the bathrooms were upstairs. My mother cannot walk up stairs. No business owners in the area, understandably, are not amicable to people using their restrooms. Aside from cancelling our order, we had to stick it out. That ended up causing problems later throughout the day. That issue aside, I felt... More

Right in the heart of Duval Street and his first location. We are from Canada and while we have them here, there is nothing like having a 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' in Key West! As you would expect, a fun laid-back vibe and great fast food. Would highly recommend the 'Volacano Nachos' to share! Enjoy!

We found Duvall Street to be fun and quaint this time of year. I would not want to be there on spring break however. Jimmy's place (the original Margaritaville) atmosphere gave you a sense of the tropics, and the food was good. If you like Jimmy Buffet try it out.

This was a very nice place. We did not have to wait for a table. The wait staff was great. The food was good. The drink presentations were very cool.

I had the Cheeseburger In Paradise, with a turkey burger, delish and the biggest turkey burger I've ever had! The onion rings were great. Love the videos. But our waitress had my Mom's order incorrect twice and I was finally offered a drink refill right before we were going to leave. She kind of had a "meh" attitude that we... More

Food was fast and service was good. Husband got a Cuban sandwich, I got pull and peel shrimp, both of us were sick not even an hour later. Will only go back for merchandise, not food!

Disappointed. I expected better quality food. I ordered the cheeseburger in paradise and the cold bun was much larger than the flavorless patty. The fries were not great either. The only reason I'm giving this place a 3 is because I had a mango banana daiquiri that was good. The atmosphere was just ok. Not impressed.

Food and drinks were definitely not of a quality to be remembered - not bad but not all that good either. The night we were there the place was near-empty (while most other bars were quite packed) and I attribute that lack of public enthusiasm to their choice of band - perhaps of great appeal to teen-agers with hearing problems...
