Description: Margaritaville New Orleans – once a state of mind is now a state of being and a landmark in New Orleans’ French Market. Margaritaville embraces the mythical world defined by the insightful lyrics of singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett for over three decades. Characters both local and from prose and poem create an entertaining atmosphere that brings to life the search for the legendary lost shaker of salt. From the Tire Swing Bar to the Deja Vu Dining Room, Margaritaville is a colorful tableau of New Orleans Culture and Buffett philosophy.The island-inspired menu offers something for everyone with American and regional favorites and, of course, signature Margaritas. The Storyville Tavern features free live music daily from 3pm.

Menu could use a few more choices but we enjoyed it. The fried chicken was excellent. My daughter loved the fries.

“Great Decision”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were seated quickly, served quickly and waited on by the kindest waitress, Jess - she was so accomodating!! Our food was excellent and when we asked to split our burger, they were kind enough to split the burger onto two plates in the kitchen prior to serving - very convenient! Truly an enjoyable experience!

“Margaritaville #8”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Our goal is to visit all Margaritaville's (a great excuse to travel). On Feb 9th we visited the New Orleans location for lunch. The food was fine - not particularly noteworthy compared to others we have visited. The staff was okay - nothing remarkable which was unusual. We were happy to see it but so far it is our least favourite that we have visited.

“Touristy...but good to the local parrotheads!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

If your a local, the 25% VIP discount is worth it...especially if your a parrothead and can't go to NOLA without a "perfect" fix...that's Jimmy's Perfect Margarita...it's not even on the menu anymore but no other will do! ...and the conch fritters are good too!

“Best Bartender ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

One of my goals is to visit as many Margaritaville's as possible. I have already been to quite a few. Before this visit to New Orleans, Key West had the best Margaritas I had tried. Brandy, the bartender, has now topped Key West. Not only does she make one of the best Margaritas I have ever had at a Margaritaville, but she is also one of the friendliest. Defineately worth a visit.
