I am now at Margaritaville @ Resorts for dinner. We sat down 30min ago. It took them 15min to serve our drinks, then 5 min later came our appetizer. It’s an hour since we sat down n we are still waiting for our food. The...restaurant is not crowded . We should have eaten at East Wind right across from Margaritaville. HUGE mistake to dine here. BTW our chicken wings appetizer was burnt n did not come with blue cheese as we had requested n we did not bother to ask for blue cheese because it may take them an hour to bring it. We had to ask the bar tender for our utensils n plate to eat our appetizer. This place is a joke.More

Didn’t want to leave a public review because my family and I have been to Margaritaville’s all around the US and Cayman Islands. My daughter even currently works in Myrtle Beach. We are Buffett parrot heads and don’t want to bad mouth one of our...favorite places. But tonight was a stinker. Not a bad wait time and got a nice table. Ordered drinks and Buffalo wing appetizer. Our waitress came back with drinks and took food order without issue. An easy two burger order, just one with no lettuce. I asked the waitress if they had a different straw than the paper one because my first one was already mush, she said she’ll get me a kids loopy straw and I was happy with that. Waited about 20 minutes, no straw, no wings, no waitress. Our entrees arrived from a food runner so I didn’t question him about our missing things. Finally had to flag down our waitress and tell her that I’ll make due with the burger covered top and bottom with shredded lettuce but I’d like her to make sure the wings that never arrived were taken off the bill ( I did this while sipping my Bahama Mama from my strawless glass, she didn’t connect the dots). I’m not a guy who makes a fuss and didn’t do so in this instance but as soon as she realized we weren’t happy with our experience, she didn’t try to smooth it over, she just decided to rush us out and get someone new to the table. Her excuse for everything was the kitchen is so behind and took no personal responsibility. I know you guys are much better than this and we have never had a poor experience at any of the Margaritaville’s we have been to. I apologize for not remembering her name as it wasn’t an “everyday” name and not something I can easily recall.More

After listening to 3 girls fussing about having to wait on tables, at the front Hostess stand, our meals came out wrong and had to be returned to the Kitchen. One of the girls squirt a liquid cleaner on a table, and then walked over...to the Hostess stand to talk to a few people, that she acted like she knew, and NEVER came back and wiped the table!!! Then, they seated a couple there, a few minutes later?!? Our drink order took a really long time to get to us. We saw there were 3 girls working the Bar, but they were all too busy talking to each other and not taking care of customers. We waited over 25 minutes to get our Drinks and the restaurant wasn't full at all. I would think all of these issues could have been resolved, if they had a Manager taking care of this. When we did FINALLY get our food order, the Cheeseburgers were OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! But, we won't be too quick to come back and sit through this craziness. Hopefully, for their sake, they get a handle on things.More

The more people that came in the less staff they seem not sure if we was even asked if we wanted water but waited too long for the drinks....but I will say as many people came to eat they didn't have enough staff so it...was no match....wow it can get real crowded and the drinks was more ice than the taste....I guess it's to keep the customers leveledMore

I order Chicken and Shrimp on bed of rice for take out. but had to order in person. Got to restaurant within Resorts Casino, place order and order margarita while waiting. After waiting 15 minutes after ordering drink, bar tender started the drink and stopped...when interrupted by waitress. Just as the food came out which was 15 minutes later adding more tequila and no lime juice was finally served. The food was put into a styrofoam container which is fine. But why was the container lines with paper? I don't like eating paper with my rice. Does this restaurant not see this crap. GROSS!More

We felt safe with tables spread out. My husband enjoyed his cheeseburger. I am vegan, so I ordered a salad and some sides. I would have liked to have The Impossible Burger, but it was not available due to Covid-19 delivery issues. Tropical drinks were...delicious. Our waitress, Jacqueline, was very friendly and prompt. Not pricey at all.More

We decided on lunch Saturday at Margaritaville ~~~ NEVER A BAD CHOICE..... We decided on our drink of choice ~~~ 5 O'clock Somewhere and a Beach Club Sandwich with fries to share (enough for two). Our bartender was great, when we went in we asked...if we could move the bar stools around the corner to watch football and he said that it would be alright (not very busy). We had a drink with us upon entering, but again he had no problem on waiting till we were done with it before making us order from the bar....Our sandwich was great as always, fries very good and crispy and our drinks were very tasty. We love this place and try to always make it in at least once when we are down.... We would recommend to others in a heartbeat.More

Happy Burger-pilot refueling location. Weather was ick outside, but inside Margaritaville it was great. Good tunes in the background. GREAT staff - took very good care of us (we had a large group). Best of All - GLUTEN FREE BUNS - Yay! Burger done right,...service done right, atmosphere done right, live entertainment done right.... It's time you done right and stopped in for a burger.
