We stopped at the Original Margaritaville for a drink late in the morning. This is where it all started for Jimmy Buffet. If you are a Parrot Head, this is a must stop. Our drink was good, the bartender was very friendly and the restaurant...More

This was our second visit to the restaurant and it was still delicious! The volcano nachos is plenty for two. The service was quick and friendly. We really love the atmosphere. look up and you feel like you are in the eye of a hurricane!

The two of us had Cheeseburgers in Paradise with mixed green salads. Everything was excellent with the Cheeseburgers rating with the best I've had anywhere.

Wasn’t crazy packed for a Saturday evening. Live music was good. Fish tacos, island rice, beans and rice and strawberry daiquiris were all great! My steak was extremely over cooked. Our waitress was great! Would visit again.

This place is very touristy. They may have a live band playing or have a constant loop of JB's songs. Had margaritas at the bar, they were just OK and overpriced. One would think they would be better... Dont waste your timeMore

Ordered conch fritters and they were good. My husband ordered fried fish which just didn’t have any flavor. Service was okay but thought food should taste better for our $50 meal!!

This place was pretty good though we did not sample much of the menu. Service was good and we just shared some Volcano Nachos and had a beer.
