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.

We're locals and we love coming to Margaritaville. We always have a great time, but this last trip was worthy of a great review. Our waitress Shelly provided above and beyond customer service. We went with our 2 year old son, which can be a troubling eating out experience. Shelly not only took great care of us, but she made... More

After a week of 'nawlins cuisine, it was a refreshing switch. Atmosphere was great, music was the right volume, food was excellent. Talapia was prepared beautifully! But hey, don't just take my word for it, stop by and ask for Ida. Tell her I sent you and she will be more than happy to take care of you...

My husband, another couple and I enjoyed the excellent food, drinks and ambiance. Best of all, each time we went we were lucky enough to get served by two of their best servers, Shelly and Randell. One of the best restaurants on French Quarter!

Spent a week in New Orleans, stayed 2 blocks from Margaritaville. Stopped in three times, menu choices very good and everything cooked perfectly and tasted great. Most importantly, we were served by two of the most professional and most customer friendly wait staff, Shelly and Randall. They both provided the most satisfying customer service we've received in a resturant in... More
