Description: Margaritaville New Orleans – once a state of mind is now a state of being...
Margaritaville New Orleans – once a state of mind is now a state of being and a landmark in New Orleans’ French Market. Margaritaville embraces the mythical world defined by the insightful lyrics of singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett for over three decades. Characters both local and from prose and poem create an entertaining atmosphere that brings to life the search for the legendary lost shaker of salt. From the Tire Swing Bar to the Deja Vu Dining Room, Margaritaville is a colorful tableau of New Orleans Culture and Buffett philosophy.The island-inspired menu offers something for everyone with American and regional favorites and, of course, signature Margaritas. The Storyville Tavern features free live music daily from 3pm.

fun spot to stop

It located right by the French Market. You cannot go wrong with ordering a margaritas (or 2), some fried pickles and onion rings. They have a full menu, but to me it was a stop to listen to music, have a snack and refreshing margaritas after walking for several hours in the hot humid weather. It... read more

Jimmy, where are you? This place needs some serious attention. I have visited other Margaritaville locations and had great experiences. This location needs "Changes in Lattituded, Changes in Attitudes." Apparently there was some issue with their food delivery service or something, No matter which entree we requested, the answer was, "Sorry, we don't have that." And that was the high... More

You simply must get the fried chicken platter, Awesome! Huge! Delicious! We sat upstairs since we were in a large group and had a bar right near us. Very potent drinks. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food, Even the burgers were good. This is the type of place you can just hang out at and never feel pressured to... More

Go for a drink, but beware the food is subpar, over-priced and just plain yucky. The drinks and music are always good and maybe if you drink enough before hand the food might seem good. Very disappointed.

As we were eating a roach ran across my mom's foot. Then my daughter looked under the table and there was ANOTHER roach. Big ones, with wings. Mom told the waitress and she told the manager and he took $10 off the bill. However, once that happened none of us felt like finishing the food, as we were grossed out.... More

I've been to several Margaritaville restaurants and this one left me underwhelmed. The interior decor and music was festive, but I'm not impressed. We ended up sitting at the Storyville Tavern as they had happy hour deals until 10PM, and it was rather empty which made the live music very loud and distracting. We had margaritas and the cheeseburger slider... More

Well, I figured all the songs that Jimmy Buffet sang about drinks and food that his restaurant would reflect what his songs said. Nope, not really! I will say this though, the decor is great and the music is festive but thats about it. I honestly don't even think that they put any alcohol in their drinks, they taste flat... More
