Description: 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.

Expected a little more pizzazz considering what city I was in but not the case. The place is small and the bar area did not call my name. There are other bars around that outpace this one.

Nais was incredibly attentive and went out of his way to make a perfect concoction of what we decided to be called Parrots Pink Lemonade... this most refreshing drink I have ever tasted especially on 104 degrees day. Could not have asked for more! Especially from a local.

The service and food are at best average, This is a city with it's own unique cuisine, there are many other places to go (right across the street) that are considerably better. It's very difficult for a branded chain to pull this off.

We ate there on a Saturday night before going to bourbon street 3 blocks away. Food was good nothing to go crazy for. Our server was super nice and very informative. Sit on the balcony for interesting environment on the street while eating.
