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.

Like Cheesecake Factory but margarita

Very touristy. Food pricey right at front of pier park. Always on a wait, I suggest if you don't have kids with you sit at the bar and get service and food quickly. No music inside new owners of this chain are cheap now. Won't pay musicians to play on the nice stage. This is South American owned... read more

We dined here for lunch and was seated promptly, took some time for our food to arrive, but when it did it was tasty but nothing special bout it. Was kinda pricy for portions you get, but at least we tried it and not really impressed. Atmosphere was ok did have live music which was good to listen to.

We came to eat here and were pretty happy with our service and the food. Although the food took a little long to be served, it was good and our waitress was good too. It is pricy to eat here - most meals during lunch averaged $12-15 a person and kids meals were $7-8 per kid. But I expected the... More

Our family of four came here for lunch one day. We were seated outside on the patio by the hostess, but our server never showed up. So after about fifteen minutes, we got up and walked out. We won't go back.

Margaritaville is always on our list of must stops! Every time we go, I am always a little shocked at the price for 4 people dinning. But, they do have outstanding cheeseburgers that you just can't beat. I had a strawberry margarita, which was served in a clear plastic solo cup. Is that normal to not have it in a... More

This restaurant is located across from the beach in the bustling Pier Park area. The food is fairly good, but not worth the wait.

We were hoping for some decent seafood. It was ok. Overpriced for the quality of food. I guess your paying for the armosphere. We had the crab dip appetizer which was good, but came out literally 2 minutes before our main course. I had the grilled shrimp and my husband had he jambalaya. Jumbalya was ok, nothing special.
