“Enjoyed the food and the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

The food here is really good. I had one of the best steaks I've ever had for dinner. We ate breakfast here almost everyday, we were staying in the hotel, and it was all very tasty. The view is so wonderful it almost makes you forget how long you'll be there. Every time we ate here during our 10 day stay took forever, over an hour every time usually closer to an hour and a half. The service is just so slow! It's not rude or bad it's just slow! It's like the whole restaurant seems to by trying but good service is just not being executed! There was a manager going around to tables and helping out which did make things better. He was trying very hard to pick up the slack. They do have a few really good waitresses though and if your lucky enough to get them you will have a much better experience!

Tip: Share a meal (they will split it up for you before they bring it out) and then order the key lime pie. In fact we had all the desserts they offer over the course of our stay and they were all very good. Also the seafood mac and cheese is great and you should really give it a try!

“Awesome food.......not so awesome service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I loved the food, it was great and we almost cleaned the plates. However, not impressed with the waitress. Actually, a very polite young man did help us while she forgot to return indefinitely.

“Inconstant Food and Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I don't know what it is, but Margaritaville can serve up some really great stuff one day - and some not so great stuff another day. And the service varies the same way. So while Margaritaville's used to be tops on our list for places to go, it's now falling down into the mediocre column. To make things worse, a friend ours stayed there one time and was erroneously billed for a broken room 'sink'. There is no way that my friend broke a 'sink'. And if they had (not that that was even remotely possible) - they would have gladly called the front desk, confessed to breaking the sink and made an offer to pay to have it repaired. This went on for a long time before it was finally resolved. But it was very poorly managed by the hotel chiefs involved. While on this rant - what's going on with Landshark Landing? Anybody know?

Go eat somewhere else. The food not good and expensive....eat a burger by the pool instead. The crab cake sandwich was awful, woke up sick
