Description: Margaritaville Myrtle Beach is at center stage of Broadway at the Beach, South Carolina’s award-winning entertainment destination. From the permanently docked boat, Euphoria, to the Stranded on Sandbar located in a Lighthouse, Margaritaville has a boat load of character that appeals to the universal yearning for a tropical escape. Watch out for that hurricane that’s blowing not wind and rain but Margaritas into a giant blender. The island-inspired menu offers something for everyone with classic American and regional favorites.

“Fun atmosphere but costly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

We took our 4 kiddos for lunch there and the place was a blast! The server was very nice and we sat out in a porch area that was partially enclosed. This meant we could see the rides and water! The music was fun and the kids loved watching the blender!! My only concern would be the cost. It is very pricey. The food is ok, it's good but not really worth the money. We'd go back solely based on the ambiance! Be aware that its popular and wait times can be very long. we usually try to go at lunch!

“Not to satisfied with the service....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

I know it is near the beach are but we had to wait for a long time to eat here. If you have time to wait for food or just to sit down than you can visit this place but if you hungry then not a good place to go there.

“Always Good Times at Margaritaville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Ate here again. Almost an annual ritual unless the wait is too long. Were in Myrtle last week of April. Not too many people. On Friday night at 6:30 we only waited 14 minutes to be seated. Service was fast and friendly. Food was plentiful and delicious. Service was very friendly. Not worth waiting hours for, but if you can get in, I recommend it.

“Second and Last Trip”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

I've been to this location before and enjoyed our first visit. However, I cannot say the same for this last visit. It started when we were told we'd have an hour and 45 minute wait, which turned into 2 hours and 15 minutes. That aside, we know this place is a popular spot. The kids really wanted to go so we hung in there. Once inside, the service was terrible. It took the waitress at least 15 minutes before getting our order. Once the order was taken, we did not see the food for an easy 45 minutes. The waitress was asked by one person at our table what the ETA was after about 30 minutes and she responded in a very curt and rude manner.

Once the food was out, we were a little happier. However, the food was mediocre at best. One of my kids got the fish fry and I ordered the fish tacos. It turns out, the fish tacos were nothing more than a couple fish sticks on a tortilla shell, with cole slaw. This was the exact same thing on my sons plate, minus the tortilla shells, yet he had twice as much fish for less money. My wife's chicken sandwich was OK, but the chicken was very dry probably from sitting.

We barely ever saw the waitress, she was slow and rude. Once we received the check we realized why - they built in the tip for parties of 10 or more, which we were. We realized she completely blew us off as she had a locked in tip, while she took care of the smaller tables. Truly unprofessional!

The only real highlight was the cool balloon artist on stilts. While we did have to pay extra, in tips, for him, he was friendly and made our kids happy.

Will never waste this much time or money for this place again, sadly.

“New Menu = Higher Prices and Smaller Portions-Go to Mr. Fish instead”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

We went to Margaritaville the first week of April 2014 and were EXTREMELY disappointed in the new menu they are bragging about. They drastically increased the prices and cut back on the portions. The Seafood Mac & Cheese was our favorite. My husband and I used to split it and have leftovers. This spring, they raised the prices of it by about $5 and it is now $20.99 and they cut the portion down by 2/3rds. I ate it all by myself. They took peel and eat shrimp off the menu and the volcano nachos are now $16!!! $16 for a plate of chips is ridiculous. My parents immediately said they were never going back and we agreed them. I'm guessing after the summer of 2014, the nearly 2-3 hour wait time for dinner will no longer be once people experience the changes to the menu. We have always loved Mr. Fish! Local and amazing menu! Their seafood mac and cheese was awesome and only $11! You don't get the crazy loud margaritaville atmosphere there, but if you want good food and not feel ripped off by paying for the indoor decor at Margartiaville, there are plenty of other places for good food. At Least LandShark Bar & Grill has an ocean view. We have been long time parrot heads and go to Myrtle several times a year since we live close by, but I'm afraid we won't be making Margaritaville one of our stops anymore. Very disappointed.
