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.

When we arrived there was an hour wait, which was expected on a Friday night. So, we wandered around the retail store and were surprised when our buzzer went off after 20 minutes. However, when we arrived at the kiosk to be seated a man told us our table was just being cleaning and to wait a few minutes but... More

We have been to almost all margaritavilles in North and South America and this is a typical one. Food is good, service is better, and atmosphere is the best. Not bad of wait.

We made reservations to eat here with out group while on a school trip to Florida. We called 6 months in advance to inquire and they said we could only reserve 30 days in advance. So we called 30 days in advance to reserve and spoke with the manager. Than we called again 10 days in advance to confirm that... More

Had a reservation at 7.15, arrived at 7.10. Given a number and told to wait, table would be ready in 20 minutes. 20 minutes turned into one hour, still no table. After a brilliant day at Universal, tired kids, this was really unacceptable. Left after waiting one hour! I could only describe this establishment as "chaotic" and seriously badly managed.... More

We tried to eat dinner here as part of the city wall's movie and dinner meal, but the wait was an hour and a half.

Visited Margaritaville many times over the years and have always enjoyed myself and the wonderful atmosphere. The service is wonderful and if you're a Jimmy Buffet fan then you will love the vibe and music playing through out. While the food is self is good, it isn't exceptional and is in line with most theme park prices (i.e. Overpriced).

We come for the balloons and the atmosphere, not so much the food. The food is fine - not fantastic but not horrible.

We have been there several times, but it is a bit over priced for a burger. Now, if you eat Nacho's, then look out because they are way over stacked and great eating. They have some nice beers, but I think they love to push the specialty drinks. Stay around for one of the bands and volcano explosion where everyone... More

It really is 5:00 somewhere! I stopped here for dinner as I have never eaten at. Margaritaville before. I sat out on the patio....it was chilly outside, but they have heat runners on the ceiling to keep you toasty. The waitress recommended the buttermilk fried chicken, so I went with it. I had the mango margarita to start off with... More
