Description: Best of the Bay First Place winner for best lunch, dinner and live music venue! Designed like the great old beach hang outs that once populated the Gulf Coast, Margaritaville Panama City, is located in Pier Park, the only entertainment and shopping complex on the beach. With upper and lower decks overlooking the Gulf it's the perfect blend of ocean breezes, great food, generous drinks and Beach Party Music. The island-inspired menu offers something for everyone with classic American and Gulf Coast favorites.

“Awesome food, long wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We went for lunch which was extremely busy time. However, the food was great and the service was outstanding. Might try a little later in the afternoon if you don't want to wait too long. Would go again on next trip.

“Awesome experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We called the night before & they did call ahead seating so our wait was only 20 minutes for a party of 9 instead of the 2 hours they told the group in front of me on a Monday night. We had an awesome server that even tho she was busy stopped to speak to my kids when they had questions for her. The food was incredible! We ordered the surf & turf, coconut shrimp, ny strip, club sandwich, cheeseburger in paradise, lava burger, lava shrimp & the cheese curds and everyone raved about all of it! A little pricey but totally worth it! We went for the atmosphere as some in our group had never been but we were surprised with the quality of the food! It's safe to say we will be returning there this week instead of trying other tourist restaurants! Great experience! The best so far on our vacation!

“Margaritaville Panama City Beach, Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We stopped in for a drink and snack after a half day at the beach. The chicken quesadilla was fantastic, as well as the margarita. Great view of the beach, and the wait staff was friendly. Convenient gift shop adjacent to the restaurant. Cool dining experience at the Pier.

“Service was AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Ate at Margaritaville last week for dinner, we had an awesome waiter 'Charmer'. He took great care of us. A drink was accidentally spilled on our table and some spilled on my leg, Charmer was very concerned about making sure we didn't get more on us. It was all cleaned up quickly and he walked me to the gift shop at let me pick out a free t-shirt. That's good customer service!!!! And the food was great too!!! Thanks Charmer Moore!!
