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.

Had a really nice lunch

My wife and I have been here before this was probably the best visit yet. We were going to eat on the river but the Reds had a day game so those restaurants were packed. We decided to eat here and do a little gambling to keep our cards current. Our waiter was Pacer, he was very nice took our... read more

CinCin has so many fantastic options, I would not recommend this place. Stop in for a cocktail (its connected to the casino) - sure! Its getting very cheesy with so many out there - empty building with buck of island stuff stuck on wall. Go elsewhere to eat!

This was my second time eating here for lunch on a weekday and it will be my last. Both times the wait was approx. 40 minutes to get our food. I only get an hour lunch. First time I was a party of three and my quesadilla came out without any chicken in it so it had to be redone.... More

The restaurant is connected to the casino so it seems like it would make sense that you could take drinks from the restaurant into the casino. No such luck. The service was poor, took 15 minutes to get our drinks. Had we not been up heaps playing blackjack this might have been more of an issue but we were in... More

First of all, as you can tell by my name, I am a parrothead. I have spent thousands of $ on Jimmy Buffett's concerts, CDs, clothing and etc. I always have tried to eat at his restaurants whenever possible. However, those days are done thanks to the Cincinnati Margaritaville at the Horseshoe Casino. My daughter drove up from Georgia for... More

Ok to start off my family and I love going to Margaritavilles while we are traveling so we have been to many.
