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.

attached to Horseshoe casino in the downtown area, but has its own separate entry for families too. Restaurant is open and airy with typical Margaritaville atmosphere. Food was good and service was great! Small gift shop also available for items to purchase. #7 on my mission to visit them all.

Visited on Saturday March 15 along with my husband and 7 others. We were seated within 30 minutes and our waiter Devon was delightful. He went out of his way to make sure my birthday celebration was a good one. We did have a bit of a wait for our food and when it was brought out there were 3... More

My wife and I wanted a casual sit down dinner and decided to try Margaritaville. I ordered the jambalaya and my wife had the spinach salad. We were impressed by both. I thought that the jambalaya was one of the best versions that I had tried. The salad with the Caribbean jerk chicken had wonderful flavor. The food and service... More

We NEEDED to escape the winter blahs so we planned a family trip to Margaritaville for lunch. There were 7 of us plus a 2 year old in a high chair. Despite being in the Casino they are "family friendly" Most of us had the Cheeseburger in Paradise and they were very good... they know how to do a burger!... More

Loved the area this was in. Went with my boyfriend and he said it was the best food he'd had in a long time. He got the Jerk Salmon and I got the Jerk Chicken.

Island music, great food, friendly staff and the drinks rock. What more could you ask for? The decor is awesome, and the big screens will often show concert scenes or tailgating at it's finest! It was a little chilly in there for me, but it is January, soooo

The restaurant's entrance is from the inside of the casino. This was not a problem until the city passed a law in September, 2013 that no one under 21 can be on the casino floor even to go to restaurants. We had to walk all the way around the casino on the outside (which was very cold the evening we... More
