With upper and lower decks overlooking the Gulf it's the perfect blend of ocean breezes, great food, generous drinks and Beach Party Music.

“Very good family outing”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Our party of 6 adults & 4 small children enjoyed our visit very much. Our server, Chiquita, was superb & worked well with the small kids. My margarita was very good. We ordered nachos which was a large serving that we could not finish. My grouper sandwich was very good & everyone seemed to have a good time with good food. It's relatively expensive, but we'll return.

“Not worth the money.”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is a tourist trap. The food is very average. The price is too high for such an average meal. I ordered a red grouper sandwich. I found a hair. The waiter brought me another sandwich and did not charge me for the meal. The atmosphere is very festive. There is a store attached to the restaurant. Everything in there is over priced. I would not suggest eating here. The local places have the good food from what I have experienced. Try Skampy's on Thomas Drive if you like seafood. They had a really good fish sandwich which was not too pricey.

“Looking for my lost jigger of salt”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

No trip to the beach would be complete without stopping at parrotheads' #1 location....it's a cult thing :)
This Margaritaville is much like others.....good margaritas, island lifestyle themed, homage to Jimmy Buffet.

Food is average to very good. This is a fairly new location situated at Pier Park (upscale, national chain stores, epcot looking, toney strip) right across the strip from the beach.
The attached Margaritaville store didn't offer as many selections as in New Orleans.

He ordered a club sandwich that seemed to be average. I order 2 appetizers and a side of cilantro slaw: a crab cake slider and a skewer of sweet/spicy Jamaican sauced grilled shrimp rolled in toasted cocoanut and speared into 2 juicy wedges of pineapple. Pretty tasty!

Good, fast, tasty service. Of course the piece d' resistance was the view from the covered deck - the palms swaying in the generous breeze and the drop dead gorgeous waves that are the trademark of the Emerald Coast.
