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.

Good food and drink, decent service, tourist pricing structer

I like this place! It is a little expensive for what it is but it is a tourist attraction in addition to being a burger joint. The wait staff is very kind every time we go. Service is a little slow but that is probably a kitchen issue. Will go again.

Seems it would be a happy place to work but I didn't see that to be the case. I asked about being able to get a margarita in a specialty cup. She rattled off something that I couldn't hear because during the answer she turned around. So, when I asked for the one I wanted, she said loudly "you can't... More

Unfortunately they removed Conch Fritters off the menu. The hours of operation aren't good in my opinion. Closing at 10 PM in summer at Pier Park doesn't really make sense.

Margaritaville is always worth the wait! It may be packed, but you can shop to pass the time. The whole experience is neat for all ages and the food is very good.

Arrived with 10 people in our party and given an estimate of 1.45 hrs for table. There was a second line for outside seating and received a table in about 15 minutes. Food and atmosphere was good. Ballon artists made a nice hat and a gentleman walking around with his pet bird was entertaining

Has super fun atmosphere and the nacho's are great; but unfortunately the rest of the food is not so great. Everything from the hamburgers to the generic frozen tasting seafood is average at best and WAY overpriced. Also the mixed drinks are good but are also way overpriced not worth the money. Margaritaville is a great place to go hangout... More

Our overall experience was great. The food, the staff, options, presentation and delicious food. We came mid afternoon so there was no waiting as this is a very popular hotel on Front Beach with the tourists.
