“It’s Five O’clock Somewhere.”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Oh yes… I’m a Jimmy Buffett Fan. This was a must stop for us… we had the chicken salad and a beer and we enjoyed both of these. I have been to a few Margaritaville Café’s and always enjoyed the atmosphere, drinks and meals.

We have always found the meals good and plenty of it and where not disappointed. But best of all we can say that we were at the Original Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville Café in Key West.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is a very nice atmosphere , but for being the Main Margaritaville it could of been a little nicer & there is not a huge selection on the menu.

“Ya gotta go there just to say you did”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The food is fairly pricey for bar food. It's not that great either. There is better food, cheaper, across the street. But, being a parrot head and enjoying contributing to Jimmy's retirement fund, I always stop in for a drink.

“What you would expect”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Average service, in super tight tables on top of each other with Jimmy Buffet on a jumbo screen and interviews with his fans. The food was above average and portions were very hardy. Checked the box would not likely return with so many other options.
