What more can you say? Always a funn place not matter the city with great atmosphere. Wife likes the mango margaritas and we get the volcano nachos which is more than enough for 2 people. Only thing that could make it better is if it were directly on the beach, but Pier Park is also a pretty cool shopping area... More

We come here at least twice a year and was very disappointed on this visit. We love the firecracker shrimp and they have reduced the portion and the sauce was poured over instead of the shrimp being shaken. We also ordered two signature margaritas and they were brought to us in a plastic cup. The salsa , qucamole, and sour... More

This was my second visit to PCB Margaritaville and I was extremely disappointed. We went in September on a Monday night and it was not busy at all! We waited approximately 30 minutes for our margaritas and a total of 45 minutes for our food! The cheeseburgers were no where near paradise! However, the margaritas, once they arrived, were delicious!

My family and I traveled to Panama City Beach in September 2014 with friends. We ate at Margaritaville across the street from the beach. The Nachos were huge and great. My wife and I shared them and there was some left over. The margarita was outstanding, as it should be for $8.00. The experience was good and I would recommend... More

Food typical but good. Atmosphere festive and fun, grandkids loved the stilt walkers who make balloon characters. Only complaint, this is the only Margaritaville restaurant that we have been to that did not play the "signature" theme song at any time, even asked the server if it was routinely played, she gave some vague answer about the bell being broken....

We stopped here for dinner one evening after visiting Pier Park for the afternoon. This is definitely a cool place to check out. In my opinion they are over priced, but its vacation and you have to live a little. They have wonderful mixed drinks, amazing coconut shrimp, and great cheese curds. The service could definitely use a little improving,... More

The food was good. Drinks were reasonable and tasted good which has not always been our experience at at Margaritaville. The staff was friendly especially our waitress Cher and the bartender Nick when we sat at the bar later. Even the sales clerk in the store was so friendly and helpful. I would go back again and recommend to my... More

I agree with some of the other reviewers that this chain tends to be a tourist trap; however, it isn't a terrible place. Just don't expect that the chain morphs into something else just because it is in another location. My husband and I had a very pleasant lunch here. We both ordered burgers, which were cooked perfectly and melted... More

The food used to be...just okay...but now it has gone downhill! Let's face it...it's a tourist trap & we are locals and used to frequent there quite a bit. It is not worth the money & the food is yet to be desired! They need to improve food quality & service for the $$$ they try to charge you!
