Best of the Bay First Place winner for best lunch, dinner and live music venue! Designed like the great old beach hang outs that once populated the Gulf Coast, Margaritaville Panama City, is located in Pier Park, the only entertainment and shopping complex on the beach. With upper and lower decks overlooking the Gulf it's the perfect blend of ocean breezes, great food, generous drinks and Beach Party Music. The island-inspired menu offers something for everyone with classic American and Gulf Coast favorites.

Not at all what I expected

The food was mediocre at best. I guess I was looking for something special in the cheeseburger in Paradise, and it just didn't do it for me. I won't be returning.

Out waiter, Low was very informative and very friendly, he answered all our question about the menu, and about the pins he had, and how he got them. Our next visit, we will ask for Low to be our waiter again. The shrimp skillet was an app, but that is all we wanted, and it was really good. Love going... More

Love the food loved the music and the stilt walkers. The nacho is to die for with an ice cold landshark beer.

We ate outside, but still in the shade on a 70 degree, mostly sunny day. It was comfortable and nice. They have an outdoor bar and a guy played live guitar some of the time. You can sit right by the main road and there’s a decent view of the ocean. We didn’t order much food, but the large nachos... More

The food tasted good but when I order a salad I was green lettuce not that cheap iceberg! Drinks were expensive! Portion sizes were generous. Don't go here if you want to find something healthy. There really isn't much. Mostly fried food.

My three friends and I ate at the Margaritaville in Panama City Beach, FL, on Tuesday, March 10, 2015. We had a fantastic experience. We arrived at around 11:30am for lunch and were seated promptly on the outdoor patio. Our server, Kim, came over and was one of the friendliest women I've ever met. This was a pleasant change, as...

My friends and I went to Margaritaville with the intentions of downing plenty of margs. Even an hour after opening, this place lives their motto of "it's 5 o'clock somewhere". Our server was Kim, she was the first (and one of the few) nice, customer oriented, staff members we encountered in PCB. Kim was very thorough with checking our IDs,... More

The inside decor could have been done by high schoolers, the food/beverages were very average, and the prices very high. FYI - like all the other restaurant in Pier Park, they are closed on Mondays.
