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.

Suprisingly good food despite touristy feel

I am a local and avoided this place for years due to the touristy feel. however, they have a great location in a busy area across from the beach.

Margaritaville is a great, fun atmosphere that has great drinks and ok food. The staff is good...something you would expect at a "spring break" town. The restaurant is more about the experience you get while you are there more than the food you eat. Food was ok--not bad, but pricy for the quality you get. The outside area was great.... More

The food was ok. Nachos were the highlight, they were a big dish but still $16.00. Burgers are preformed patties, not a lot of flavor. Atmosphere is cool. I personally will pass on coming here again. Too much money for not enough flavor. Try the front porch for burgers, salty sues for BBQ or Diegos for margaritas ($5.00 for a... More

My hubby and I ate here on a Friday night. The atmosphere was fun, there were two people walking around on stilts making balloon animals for tables. The food was okay. You sit very close to the next table. Not sure if we would try again or not.

This was both my husband's and my visit to a Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Restaurant and for sure not our last. I absolutely loved the lively and colorful decor. The back ground music was not too loud and the service was prompt and very friendly. I believe our server's name was Jason (hopefully I'm correct) and as we were seated near... More

Short menu. Terrible prices, $ 13.00 bucks for a hamburger. Nice atmosphere and very friendly employees. Not a restraint for family dining if you are on a budget.

My kids ask to go to "Jimmy Buffets" every time we are in Panama City beach (at least 6 times a year). It is so much fun for them - the music inside, disco ball coming out of airplane in the ceiling - a BOAT you can sit in - and we usually go to make them happy :) The... More

We went in late on a Sunday and while the place wasn't busy, and they were soon to close the manager welcomed us warmly. My husband had a cheeseburger in paradise and I had a fish sandwich. The food was good. The music was a bit loud only because it was almost closing time and fairly empty. We'd like to... More
