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.

I have been to this cafe twice, once in NOLA and once in Florida. Same experience both times. Crowded, noisy, food just average and cleanliness not the best. We won't be going to any of this chain again.

On our way out of the city, my friend and I stopped for A Cheeseburger in Paradise. Food was great, server was very enthusiastic and the atmosphere is what you would expect from a Margaritaville. Charismatic and colorful!

Stopped in for lunch while walking around the French Quarter. Colorful place with videos of Jimmy Buffett concerts playing around the restaurant. The prices seemed a bit on the high side, but I guess that is to be expected in New Orleans. Good food selection and friendly staff.
