Description: Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, right in the center of Universal Orlando CityWalk. From a volcano flowing with margaritas to suspended airplanes, Margaritaville is more than a restaurant; it's a state of mind. Margaritaville has everything you need to have a good time: great island-inspired food, four unique bars, live music and two levels of outdoor seating overlooking CityWalk. Chill out with a margarita on the Porch of Indecision or dip your toes in the sand at the Lone Palm Airport.

“Lovely food - staff a bit slow and more into themselves than the service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Amazing food. I hate the type of music played but it suits the surroundings and helps with the theme of the bar - staff are slow and seem very much into themselves - fish tacos are amazing

“Porch of Indecision did not disappoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had a great dinner at Margaritaville the other night. The main dining room was closed for a private party which was disappointing, but eating out on the porch was not.

John Frinzi played an acoustic set or two while we ate. The food was very good and our server was friendly and helpful.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Food was average. Bar service was good. Atmosphere lacked. Band was great. Nice venue for a large work gathering. Would consider having a drink and an apetizer, then eating a meal elsewhere.
