“Great Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We went here whilst on a cruise for the afternoon and had lunch and cocktails.

The DJ was fantastic and the scavenger hunt looked fun, and we would of stayed longer.
The cocktails were really good and the food was okay.

Think it will be better once the pool is completed.

“Mixture of Locals and Tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The establishment was clean and the music was good. It was fun but nothing out of this world to write home about.

“A baby Margaritaville that needs to improve”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The best thing about this Margaritaville is the DJ....one of the most entertaining, interactive, and best I have ever heard. He was the saving grace of Margaritaville in Falmouth. Sadly, this Margaritaville feels like it opened too early. The seating is nice with a great outdoor feeling. The water area, which is supposed to be a large pool and replica of Dunn's Falls, is not even under construction yet. It's an empty dirt lot visible from the ship but hidden by a fence in the restaurant. The drinks are okay. The food was okay. They really should do more like other Margaritavilles -- make guacamole at the table, have more entertainment, and get that pool area open!!!! We would have stayed much longer if there was more to do. Again, the DJ was terrific, but I'm not sure we will return.

“Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We spent most of the afternoon at Margaritaville in Falmouth after checking out the shops. We each had a couple of Pina Coladas and watched a DJ playing a scavenger hunt game/musical chairs thingy with about 12 volunteers. It was a riot. We always have fun at Margaritavilles.
The waitress we had was so sweet, she even got involved helping people in the game. Thanks for a great time.
We were on the Allure of the Seas, see in the background of one of the photos.

“Stay Away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

While they by far have the best margaritas ever, my experience was so bad that I would never return. The bartender asked for my credit card without providing a tab, when I requested a tab, the bill was incorrect as he had charged us of items we never received. When I requested a manager he came back with a co-worker posing as a manager. When I contacted corporate they reaponded promptly apologizing for my experience and indicated they would send me a refund. I am home over one month and have emailed them regarding the missing refund only to be told "we will process it today". That was two weeks ago. Save yourself the trouble and patronize a restaurant that values honesty and integrity!
