Great food, great service, great place! When you are tired of slow service, rice and beans take a break and go here.

We went to Margaritaville early Saturday evening, thinking it would be busy - nope. There were maybe six other people. The food was good & the drinks were good, but are over-priced. Drinks are $9+ and food is $14+. The atmosphere was disappointing. It maybe a cliche, but I expected to hear Jimmy Buffett - not the case. The staff was friendly & helpful after you talk with them for awhile. If not for the staff, I would give a lower rating. Our bartender said it's busier during the day.

Thank you for visiting and for your review. We’re happy to hear that you enjoyed the service extended to you during your visit, as our team does their best to ensure that all our visitors are happy. In our daily operations we can see a mix of high and low energy crowds, giving rise to a host of activities and a slightly louder ambiance on some days. Other days tend to be more on the laid back side and quite. We have also noted your comments regarding the music, and have shared same with our team for review. We thank you for spending time with us, and hope that this will not be your last visit.

There is nothing really to recommend this place. It is over-priced, loud, crowded with half-drunk 20 somethings with beach vendors harassing those who sit at the beach tables. Lots of better places to go without the name value.

Thank you for visiting, and we apologize for not exceeding your expectations during your time with us. During our day time activities, we can see a vast mix of people at our location, some of which come from hotels as well as other tours/cruises. As such, they may have been involved in other festivities prior to arriving, accounting for their less than sober state. We also apologize for any harassment you may have experienced during your visit. Security is present at our location throughout our operating hours, however we will review our current security detail and make adjustments to ensure the highest level of security possible and alleviate these harassment issues. We thank you again for visiting and for your feedback, and hope you choose to come back and visit us despite your experience.

But it was worth it! I am a true parrot head, and this Margaritaville did not disappoint. Asked for and was given yet another menu to add to my own Parrot Head bar at home. Nachos were awesome, drinks cold and service was excellent!

the service was impeccable and serving staff were always smiling. Very expensive drinks and food. The food was so so. Great that they have a free shuttle to and from your hotel. Worth it all day long!
