“Never again!!! STAY AWAY. ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Wait for 30 min to get some appetizers, and the place wasn't even busy. Food is , I really.... I don't know how to describe it , CHEAP !!! but pricey. if you feel like eating at a poor and overpriced local go ahead and eat here. If you have some self respect go across the street.

“Good casual place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

This is not a bad call for relatively inexpensive sandwiches and casual dishes. Hamburger was ok and none of us had any complaints on the food or the service. It is waterfront and has good views of the harbor. It is a great place to watch the Friday night fireworks they have in the summer along Harbor Walk.

“Margarita Time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Well we never pass up an opportunity to eat at one of Jimmy's restaurants. The food was good but the wait staff did a poor job, maybe she was having a bad day at home! Being a Parrot Head I was more interested in the ambiance then the food.

“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We visited Margaritaville for the first time and were impressed with it all! The food was great and service was top notch. Our waitress went above and beyond to make this experience great! Its on the water and the atmosphere, food, and service was worth the price. We will visit again when we return to Destin!

“Great View, Disappointing Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Beautiful views, lackluster food, slow service, generally less than anticipated experience. Cant be compared to their Myrtle Beach, PCB, Cancun, or Cozumel locations. It is worth stopping by, but keep your dining and service expectations low; maybe you will have a better experience.

Jason B - Thank you for visiting! We hold all aspects of our experience to very high standards, so it is upsetting to hear we missed the mark in a few areas with you. We want our food and service to be as amazing as our views, so your comments will be taken serious by our team. We do hope you give us another try in the future.
