Description: Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, right in the center of Universal Orlando CityWalk. From a volcano flowing with margaritas to suspended airplanes, Margaritaville is more than a restaurant; it's a state of mind. Margaritaville has everything you need to have a good time: great island-inspired food, four unique bars, live music and two levels of outdoor seating overlooking CityWalk. Chill out with a margarita on the Porch of Indecision or dip your toes in the sand at the Lone Palm Airport.

We had passed this place on lots of occasions on previous trips but gave it a go this time and went 4 nights!!!!! The guys on stilts making balloon hats and making us sing were great.. We leapt up and did all the shouting etc when our Volcano erupted. It was great. Try the coconut shrimp,sweet potato fries and coleslaw,,,... More

We're not really fans of theme restaurants, but this one was a lot of fun. We arrived at Universal after 6pm and the parking was only $5. We did not have reservations and headed to the gift shop. Within minutes, our table was available. The decor was interesting and the food and service were surprisingly good. And it was non-stop... More

We ordered drinks and dinner here. The margaritas were not that good yet expensive and fish and chips just ok . There are better places to eat in city walk. Staff was very nice though.

Understandingly the Margarita are to die for! The food selection is excellent for all the family. The vibe is just fantastic especially when the live music is on. Love the bar area - so unusual. Will return. Note; gets full very quickly but tables come free quite quickly after reservation.

Good food, alittle pricey both for food and drink. Plan on spending no less than $60 for two people. Really though its to be expected in a tourist area such as this.

Welcome to Margaritaville! What started out at as a visit to the restaurant's shop, turned into lunch. My kids had Caesar salad and were very pleased. We split a boneless chicken thumb appetizer which was very good as well. The watermelon margarita was more kick than taste, if you know what I mean, but still a satisfying beverage. Overall, a...

This bar/restaurant sits on the corner at Universal Citywalk, overlooking the lake. It’s a huge place, with several walk up bars. It’s worth going to see the erupting Margarita Blender, which erupts every hour on the half hour. As expected, the choice of the Margarita Cocktails was great and also a good vibe in this place, due to the live... More
