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.

Great option for a Jimmy Buffett fan in this area!

We stopped here with our young children in early July. We were at the Zoo, and we love Jimmy Buffett and the Margaritaville chain so we figured, why not! It is difficult to replicate the fun of these restaurants that are in Florida or the Caribbean, but I thought it was a good option nonetheless... read more

I've since visited Bobby's Burger Palace, also in the casino. It is much better and cheaper. I recommend going there instead. As far as Margaritaville, first of all, no "door greeter" was present. Secondly, my waiter brought me unsweetened iced tea with no artificial sweetener. Attempts to flag him down four times failed even though he came close to me... More

We had seen the Volcano Nachos being delivered to other tables over the few years that this place has been open and said, "We need to get those!" Well, tonight we did... and the volcano wasn't erupting... I remember the nacho's being piled high... Ours didn't seem to be. When we dug in we got a whole bunch of soggy... More

No big blenders, no side shows, smaller facility located in the Casino, does have a separate entrance. We were there for the Cincinnati Parrot Head Club pre Jimmy Buffett concert party. Club did a great job, setting up the event. Facility was extremely crowded, staff worked hard and kept people in drinks and food. We sat inside and outside, outside... More

We truly enjoyed our experience eating, drinking and listening to the live music so much we visited twice in one day while at the casino. The service was very good as was the food.

The MOD Jack/Jake? I don't remember and the very out going server on duty were great. We arrived there at probably 10:02, kitchen closed. We asked what time the kitchen was open.. Jack: 'You folks are good what would you like?" We ordered, and they were on top of there game after what looked like a very busy Thursday. 7.2.15... More

You can add decorations and music and that alone does not a Margaritaville make. Even the drink offerings are not the same as the Margaritiville in Pigeon Forge, TN I would rather drive 5 hours to the Smokey Mountains for the service. Jimmy needs to clean house. Nothing but bad attitudes and scouring faces. We will not be back.
