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.

We celebrated my daughter's 16th birthday here with 24 of her friends as well as a table of adults. We simply called ahead (they technically take locations) and we got RIGHT in. The restaurant accommodates large groups so everyone was together. Our server was awesome, even when seeing 2 huge tables of teenagers in his area!!! I had coconut shrimp,... More

My first thought when we got there and had to park so far from the restaurant was that we were going to be waitng forever. The line was kind of long but luckily a table for 2 opened up. The food was awesome. And we will be back when we visit again

Went with a group of 4 and all of us didn't enjoy any of our drinks or our meals. The only good thing I can really say was our waitress was nice but for the price you pay for a drink, you'd literally have to drink about twelve to even feel a buzz.

The guy playing outside on the patio was really good. I sat at the bar outside which was nice. The drinks were average price for a drink. It wasn't really strong. The food was decent. The bartender was very attentive.

Make sure you eat outside!! If you get the perfect seating, you can dine while watching the gulf! Music, relaxed atmosphere, great food! Enjoy!

Decent food, fun atmosphere. Not really a ton more to say. Long wait for a table, the wait staff was nice. I wish Jimmy had been there performing. If you never been to one of his restaruants you should definitely go but other than the great cheese burgers not a whole lot to rave about.

We stopped for the first time. It was worth stopping once, but we probably would not visit again. The food was ok and the service was good. Just not our thing or taste I guess.
