Description: Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, right in the center of Universal Orlando CityWalk. From a volcano flowing with margaritas to suspended airplanes, Margaritaville is more than a restaurant; it's a state of mind. Margaritaville has everything you need to have a good time: great island-inspired food, four unique bars, live music and two levels of outdoor seating overlooking CityWalk. Chill out with a margarita on the Porch of Indecision or dip your toes in the sand at the Lone Palm Airport.

“Great time!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I had dinner here with my two teenagers. They are not kidding about the nachos, volcanic in size!! Way too much for just 3 of us. Would be a great appetizer for a party of 5 or 6. Too much food, portions were big and food was delicious. Just too much! Also, best margarita ever, I had "a night in Paris" served on the rocks.

“I will sit outside in the rain if I want to be dripped on!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

My teenagers and I were on a vacation in June 2013. We treat ourselves to Margaritaville once a year. We were served our soda and tea and placed our food order. All of a sudden the ceilings condensation started dripping on me and the table. I asked to be moved. The waiter was so concerned about us moving to a table not in his serving area, his were all taken, that he didn't want us to move. He scooted the table over a bit and then the dripping was all over me!
I stood and waited. I explained that I could not eat with whatever was dripping on me or my food. He was mad, moved us, continued to serve us and we watched new customers sit there with water dripping on them and their food.
What kind of service is this?

“Fun and Good.”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had a ball here. First we sat at the bar and had margaritas and their version of Bonefish Grill's bang bang shrimp. It was pretty good. The margarita volcano erupted. I will say the margaritas could stand a little more potency. The people were nice. After walking around city walk a while, we came back and had dinner. Their was a guying singing and playing the guitar. All his songs sounded the same. I ordered the club sandwich and my husband had a burger. Our food was good. My husband said his burger was extremely good. All in all we had a great time. oh there were guys walking around on stilts making balloon animals, we did not get that. Other than that it was fun.

“Drinks are always good!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Drinks are always good at Margaritaville. The food can go either way. My husband had the Cuban sandwich which was excellent. I had the taco salad which was not so good. We have eaten there before and love the atmosphere. We have had some great burgers there and some not so good quesadillas. The desserts are average and small. The porch is always fun and there is usually a guitarist for listening pleasure.
