“Good Atmosphere, Mediocre Food.”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This restaurant was decorated so nicely and there were live shows every hour. However, the waitress was in a very bad mood and was complaining that it was too loud. She also wasn't very attentive to our drinks. We saw 2 shows and they were pretty cool. The menu had a variety of food and vegetarian options were available. The food came quickly but it was a disappointment. My sister ate 1/4 of her quesadillas, and said they were too gross to finish. My pasta was average, and it was a medium sized portion. Overall, it was over-priced and not worth another visit.

Aloha!

Thank you for joining us at Margaritaville Restaurant for a dining experience recently and for providing a review of your experience. I want to apologize that your server was not what you expected. There is no excuse in my book for that kind of attitude. We will work with the crew members to enhance your next experience so please return and let us know how we are doing.

“Good food, good environment”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We were gambling at Margaretville and we stopped in to eat dinner - what a great choice.

The food was really good for this type of restaurant. At the table we had the Cuban sandwich, a Monterey chicken sandwich and some of the fried coconut shrimp. Among the 3 dishes we also shared French fries and onion rings - everything was delicious.

The service was excellent for a Friday night at 7:00. No less than 3 times while we were eating, a manager stopped by to make sure we were having a great experience.

There was somewhat of a weird show that occurred on the hour - a young girl would climb up the volcano and slide into a big margarita blender with water in it and then do some type of dance - interesting but definitely could have done without it.

The restaurant is loud - but that is to be expected for this type of restaurant. The décor is really jimmy Buffett.

“Great decor!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This was the "Margaritaville" restaurant not the buffet. The buffet did not open until dinner service. This was a Margaritaville restaurant. Food is typical of Margaritaville with the exception that the fish in my tacos was a bit cold. It was cooked it just seems that it was done to early and was cold by the time the rest of the food came out. Our server was ok, though room for improvement. However, we went opening week so most were still trying to figure out menu and seating. This is the 6 or 7th Margaritaville I have been in and the decor in this one is over the top compared to the others! There was a mock sailboat with tables and videos showing on its sail, a volcano, large blender, and various other boats with tables in them. Somehow visiting Margaritaville's has gotten to be a tradition with my daughter and I and she really enjoyed this one. Looking forward to staying at the hotel next time we go through there.
