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.

Good food, great drinks, but average service. The outdoor seating was good and a great location right within the Universal Studios area. The waitress was very friendly, but took forever to deliver our drink and food orders.

After spending the late afternoon at the theme park we were looking for a place to get bite to eat and relax. Margaritaville delivered on both and more. We were seated promptly and given direction on how to sit to see the fireworks. Drinks came quickly and our waitress - Jenn - was amazing. Checked on us but did not hover. We never wanted for anything. The food was good and we left happy and content.

We received excellent service by the waiter and the manager who spoke with us about gluten free options. We were told that the executive chef in the Orlando restaurant actually made the gluten free menu for the entire company. They had many options including any sandwich on a gluten free bun. Sizes were huge and the food was delicious. The ambiance was a bit cheesy with a volcano that "explodes" about every 30 minutes, but that's kind of to be expected in a setting like this.

Margaritas hit the right spot. I go for the classic margarita on the rocks. I also had the Volcano Burger which was delish!

The menu can vary from one restaurant to another in this chain, and the Orlando location has a wide, nice selection. Great atmosphere, especially if you're a Buffett fan (I am). Our waitress was funny and fast. Drink refills came frequently, which was nice after some time in the Universal Studios theme park on a pleasant 84-degree Orlando December day.
