Description: Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at the Horseshoe Casino in downtown Cincinnati for the ultimate tropical experience. Located beside the casino’s main entrance, the restaurant’s natural materials, exposed wood and warm tropical colors create a welcoming, laid back atmosphere with unique dining spaces, a concert stage and multiple bars. A large exterior deck overlooks the Horseshoe’s performance lawn where guests may enjoy alfresco dining, a drink topped off with a gentle breeze or possibly a live performance on the lawn. After dinner the laid-back tropical atmosphere transitions to a light night scene with dancing and live music every night of the week.

We decided to eat here because everywhere downtown had a 2-4 hour wait. We waited 45 minutes here. Our waiter was friendly. This was our first visit to this particular chain restaurant. I felt it was very overpriced for average type food. I would not return.

We visited there this past Friday evening. We enjoyed a dinner, some expensive drinks and got the opportunity to listen to some local cover band, which wasn't too bad. Our bill might have been a little pricey, but hey, we were in a casino and this is "Jimmy Buffett's" place. You're gonna pay a little for eating there...just like if... More

Location is in Casino. Here on Wed night and it was salsa night, which was kind of cool. Wasn't very busy. Got an appetizer (basically popcorn chicken smothered in BBQ sauce). Wasn't very good and didn't finish. Had margaritas which weren't anything special. The music and watching the dancing made it worthwhile, but this ranks as my lowest Margaritville experience.

We needed a rest and a drink while we were at the casino. The service was great, the scenery was awesome, and the margaritas were the best!!

Visited here with a customer. Ordered the shrimp appetizer (bam, bam I think) and the shrimp were excellent. Ordered a chicken caesar salad and it was by far the worst tasting salad I've ever eaten. I asked to have the chicken grilled instead of with the spices and it came out seasoned. No big deal. Server got me a piece... More

I've been to a few of these located in different places and every one of them is fine, the one in Horseshoe is rather large, the service is good and the food is average. Sometimes they have live music playing which is nice and they do have a nice little outdoor area that I noticed is new with a bar... More
