We got seated promptly, as it was off season and not crowded, but then it took 15 minutes for the waitress to come over. She didn't notice us and the host who seated us saw we had not been taken care of yet and went to get her. The Margarita was good and the food was fine, neither was anything... More

I went to Margaritaville in Key West to have a cheeseburger in paradise. Very good burger and french fries. Can't beat the atmosphere! Good service and good food! If you're going to Key West, you must visit Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville!

It used to be fun to come to Margaritaville but now they don't even play his music. It is just your average theme cafe. Food is good and tries to capture some of the fun from his songs, but that is kinda where it stops. Staff are rather surly and are certainly not having any fun or trying to encourage... More

Generous potions of food and wide range of cocktails. We visited twice, first time service rushed and second time was very slow. Better atmosphere in the evening as it's very dark and dingy for a day time venue. Inexpensive and air conditioned, suitable for families but better venues in Duval Street.

This was a must stop for us. The place is smaller than others but it is the original. Food and service was good. Nothing spectacular. Nice gift shop. Now we can say " Been there. Done that".

Stopped in for drinks and atmosphere. Famous place for Jimmy Buffet fans. Food looked good but of course we only had drinks.

Had lunch and a margarita. Food and drink was excellent. Went to the gift shop next door and bought a t-shirt. It was on sale for 20% off and the cashier said he was new and didn't know how to take off the % so I would have to pay the full price. A manager heard and came over and... More

If you enjoy flavor try the Jambalaya! It was enough for two of us to split! Drinks, atmosphere and service were great!
