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.

We've been here before, but this was our first time with the kids. We had great food and service. Portions are large and prices are not out of the world. We sat upstairs and actually got to view the fireworks at Universal. Would have loved to sit on outside deck, but was just a little too chilly!! Kids menu was great - I will warn the Mac n cheese was enough to feed too kids. I actually think it was one whole box!!! Loved my chicken sandwich and my husband enjoyed his burger! We would definitely go back!!

Huge portions, food quick, service good, slightly overpriced for the quality of the food but I suppose it is down to location. I had the hugest pile of nachos ever, there was not enough sour cream/guacamole for the number of nachos, I asked for more so was charged. My partner had southern fried chicken, which was good but the mash tasted like packet mash. Overall OK.

We enjoy stopping by Margarittaville for lunch when we're in Orlando; the food is always reliable, if not great, and the atmosphere is relaxing and fun. The service on this last visit, however, was excruciatingly slow and frustrating. The server appeared promptly, brought our drinks and took our food order in a reasonable time…then disappeared. Our drinks also disappeared and so did other customers who finished their meals, even some who arrived a while after we did. Someone finally brought our food, but since we still hadn't seen the original server again, we asked to see the manager who apologized and took ONLY the food off the bill. The original server eventually brought the bill but never apologized or mentioned his disappearing act.

vakamalua - We are very sorry this is the most recent experience you had with us. The service you describe here does not meet our high standards and is not what you should expect from us. Your comments are being taken very serious and will be addressed with the team. We appreciate your patronage and hope you will continue to dine with us in the future.

The new menu is terrific! There were 6 in our party and we all had something different and no one had a bad thing to say. The service was excellent and the way we were treated was the best I have ever had! Thanks much Margaritaville!!

Ugh...2 hours is way too long for lunch. We even had a late lunch (3:30pm), but it seems the staff works on beach time...slow as molasses. Drinks were watered down, food is mediocre, and spending that long on lunch ruins your day.
