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.

Sub par customer service - we left

I was excited to go to Margaritaville in PCB. We went inside and were told there was a 30 minute wait. We decided to go to the bar instead. On the way we saw at least 7 empty tables. We sat at the bar and the bartender saw us but was cleaning the bar off - she had no other... read more

When I found out there was a Margaritaville in PCB, I was really excited to go. I love margaritas, and thought it sounded like a fun place to eat. I have to say I was not impressed. First off, our host would have rather been home, and he told us as much. The food was good, but really over priced.... More

Lots more fun to visit in the summer time, but as usual the food and service was good. Wish they had a smaller version of the volcanic nachos. $15.95 is to much to spend on them for two seniors, knowing only half of them would be eat. I had the coconut shrimp which is always good and my wife had... More

We AVOID Chain and Theme based restaurants! We had been given a gift certificate for Jimmy Buffets's Margaritaville so decided to let that be the start of our family New Years Eve celebration. Being a party of 6 ranging from 7 - 63, it' not always an easy job to go to a restaurant where everybody is satisfied. Although it... More

The food was good, but over priced! It took forever to be seated (w/reservations), the service was slow, & it was very loud!!! It was you typical tourist trap restaurant.

If you've never been to one - it's a fun place to try. If you're a 'Parrot-Head' you'll love it. A big place with a boat near the center, TV's on the walls, and a high ceiling for the hanging airplane. We mainly had burgers and such, but they were large and quite tasty. Overall a good time in a... More
