My girlfriend and I went to the Margaritaville in Jack Casino on July 22nd. We have been to this restaurant many times but, had never had such bad service. When we sat down at the bar, we ordered an appetizer and our entrees at the same time. The appetizer finally showed up about 20 minutes later. The bartender said that... More

Eat here on a monthly. The new promotional lunch menu is a very good value for what you are getting. The service can sometimes be a little slow but it is much improved over the last year

Even though Buffets in under a roof with a new name.. This place is still going strong. The house band on the weekends gets you going and the locals make you feel as if you belong.

In not big into chain restaurants or big hokey things, so when my mother invited me to eat with her at Margaritaville, I was reluctant at best. But she's my mother and so with her, I went. The menu is fairly large, but not overwhelming, of your typical beachside dining options. We got an order of the coconut shrimp and... More

We have been to Margaritaville before, but this was the first time we were alone in the place. It is located in the former Cincinnati Horseshoe casino - now under management as Jack's casino. The new management changed the hours and happy hour. This was not posted on the website. I found out through a friend they no longer allow... More

We went here for a late lunch prior to Jimmy Buffett concert at Riverbend on June 21. Friends from Florida joined us. The place was not busy at all so could not understand why everything was so slow. Embarrassingly slow. Long wait to be seated with not an employee in sight. Took forever to get waited on and even longer... More

The restaurant is inside the casino, but worth making the trip! The servers were very friendly and accommodating. I arrived a half hour before my friend and the staff gave me just the right amount of attention during the wait and after. The food looked and tasted fabulous. It was reasonably priced and the restaurant was clean. The atmosphere and... More

Live music was great on the weekend. Service was excellent. However the food needs attention. I had the fish and chips, and the dish was nothing spectacular. My girlfriend had the taco salad. Just the look suggested it was not fresh. She agreed after tasting. She did not finish her dish. I was disappointed in the food. Hopefully management will... More

Description
Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at the Horseshoe Casino in downtown Cincinnati for the ultimate tropical experience. Located beside the casino’s main entrance, the restaurant’s natural materials, exposed wood and warm tropical colors create a welcoming, laid back atmosphere with unique dining spaces, a concert stage and multiple bars. A large exterior deck overlooks the Horseshoe’s performance lawn where guests may enjoy alfresco dining, a drink topped off with a gentle breeze or possibly a live performance on the lawn. After dinner the laid-back tropical atmosphere transitions to a light night scene with dancing and live music every night of the week.
