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.

I popped in to escape the heat, and a couple of yummy margaritas later, I was cooler and satisfied.

Worth checking out!

“SURE, WE HAD TO HAVE A DRINK HERE”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Well, maybe several drinks. It's MARGARITAVILLE!!! and yes, we are parrot heads and loved all of the Jimmy Buffett memorabilia on the walls. Enjoyed the music but were disappointed he didn't know all of Jimmy's songs. He played and sang what he knew, but come on. It's all good - had a good time.

“Great beer and music!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Stopped in to cool off and rest. Great live music in the bar. A lot of cool memorabilia on the walls. This bar was not as crowded or loud as others in the area! I would definitely stop in again.

“A fun place, good food.”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This restaurant goes thru the block so has two entrances, one on each street. One enters into the restaurant, the other into the bar. We happened to go in the one that was near the bar. There was a hostess who was leading us to the dining room when I noticed the singer in the bar. One of the reasons we chose to go here was the reviews that indicated there was live music, so we asked if the live music was only in the bar area. She said yes, so we asked to be seated in there. It turned out the singer that was performing was pretty bad, but it was still more fun that nothing. We decided to order a cup of their crab/corn chowder to share because it sounded so delicious, and to share an order of beef fajitas. The waitress was a little clueless. After placing our order there was quite a wait. Then as the waitress passed by our table she said, "Your fajitas are almost ready." I said, "We were hoping to get our soup first." She acted like that had never occurred to her, but said she'd get it right up, which she did. We were still eating the soup when the fajitas arrived, but they were super hot so it didn't matter if they waited a few minutes to be eaten. The chowder was really good, a little spicy but not bad, and the fajitas were really yummy. I hadn't realized that there were two entrances to the restaurant, and a few days later when we were walking around the French Quarter, we came across Jimmy Buffet's, but it looked entirely different. We walked in to discover the dining room and then realized that it went through the block with an entrance on both streets. I must say the decorations in the dining room are really fun! Tables and chairs painted with fun colors and designs and a part of a boat coming out of one wall. So the atmosphere in the dining room is a whole lot nicer, but the live music is only in the bar and the atmosphere there is a lot more casual - you have to chose. The chowder was $4.99 and the fajitas were $15.99. A very good meal. We will be looking for this chain in other cities that we visit.
