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.

I was very happy with their new gluten free menu. Everything I ordered it was delicious. Even my friend who is not gf ordered off of it and she loved it also. The musicians they had playing on the patio that weekend were all great. If the weather is great I recommend sitting outside, it's also great people watching.

The service at this location is ***terrible***. Never again will I go to a Margaritaville restaurant. I will also be complaining to the corporate office.

We were at this restaurant July 2013 and LOVED it! Great atmosphere, great service, loved the food. One year later we went back, HUGE disappointment. The atmosphere had changed, it wasn't as lively as the previous year. It was not busy and they seated us in a table that was butted right up to a pole underneath some pipes that... More

This restaurant is included as a choice for "full service" on the Universal Studios dining plan. We made a dinner reservation thru the reservations kiosk in the park and went to dinner at the assigned time. We had to wait a half hour to be seated on the second floor. It was really uncomfortably hot but we had no desire... More

We decided to check this place out after a nice dinner at Hard Rock Cafe thinking we could nicely finish off an excellent day at Universal with a Margarita - well, we were wrong. It took a good 10-15 minutes to get a waiter to get to our table (there were maybe 4 other tables occupied by guests on the... More

This place is unreal – the atmosphere, the music, the location, and most importantly the food! First off, the atmosphere is wonderful – the inside of the restaurant is themed as a boat with a giant sail and a giant volcano which erupts on the hour! Great music – Jimmy Buffet’s classics ‘Volcano’ and (of course) ‘Margaritaville' are played regularly.... More
