Who wants food too pretty to eat? Yeah, everything in the menu only SOUND great but food is not much to praise about. Any stadium hot dog is better than this. Prices are high. Pla...

Cheesburger in paradise is truly paradise. Sitting outside by the plane is nice. more

Bizarre Experience, Excellent Food 3/7/2012

My wife and I were vacationing from Maine and visiting Florida friends. After a full week of parks, we finished our stay with a meal at Margaritaville. We called ahead in the morning for priority seating, actually before they opened. Surprisingly, they answered the phone. (IMPRESSED) We realized in the afternoon, we would be 20 min. later than expected. We called to let them know , only to find they didn't have our name on the list.(NOT IMPRESSED) Arrived and were seated immediately.(IMPRESSED)The waitress came to take beverage order. She was speaking lower than a whisper, as she was losing her voice. She returned with bev. and took meal order. By this time, she couldn't speak at all. She went home and another waitress took her place, (FELT SORRY),sweet girl. No, its not over yet. While waiting for our meal, my wife and I left the table to take a picture, as this was our first visit to Margaritaville, my first to Florida. I had left my sweatshirt on the back of my chair. I returned to find another waitress inspecting my shirt. While serving an adjacent table, a small stainless steel container of sauce fell off the serving tray and landed perfectly upright. This caused the sauce to fly straight up and out with erupting force. The shirt blocked most, but it went so high, some showered down on the table and on our friend on the opposite side of the table! (NOT IMPRESSED) They cleaned my shirt as best they could and the manager apologized and offered a new sweatshirt from the gift shop so I wouldn't have to walk around CityWalk with a soiled shirt that evening! (VERY IMPRESSED) I didn't ask for nor expect anything, but their offer, to say the least, caught me off guard. Oh, did I mention the knife that flew off a passing wait tray and I jumped out of the way? Well, after all that, strange as it seems, I considered it a great experience. When was the last time this many things happened to you at one meal? It was an exciting time. Of course, it helps that all four meals were GREAT! and the sweatshirt compensation, considering mine was ruined. Yes, it is now a ""work around the house"" shirt. I cannot wait to return to Florida. Margaritaville will be on the ""To Do"" list. more

Worth a Trip 10/6/2010

FIRST OF ALL, it's not just a restaurant in Orlando. It's literally a paid right of passage to get in. . .you have to enter the entire Universal/City Walk park to get access ($15 fee - even more pissed-it said, $12 on Margarittaville's website, but I didn't complain over 3 bucks). Then it takes like 15 minutes of walking from the parking garage, up the elevator, up the escalator, passing through security, more traveling to see all the advertisements and little side carts with toys, etc, and THEN you enter the park. Then you have to walk a bit..THEN you might have a chance of not waiting 30 minutes like we did for a table..when you get there don't let them take pictures of you with the parrot (it's real, tried to pick at my eye...very weird) because they will approach you later with the developed photo & charge a fee to get it. The ""Big Rita"" was pitiful..$17 and you get a cup that's not even slightly impressive. Looked like a glass beer bottle (OH! but you get to keep the cup! yay..) There were huge tv's everywhere playing over and over again...big surprise Jimmy Buffet music. MAYBE another artists at random...& briefly about the Positives: the crab soup was DELICIOUS, the food was pretty good, & our ""queen"" male waiter was terrific. If your planning on a day hanging out at City Walk, I'm all for you checking it out but if you are just passing through the area and are pressed for time, DON'T DO IT. It's a trap I tell you! more

don't eat the nachos!! 5/18/2010

I was in a big dinner party and everyone that ate the nachos got sick more

Margaritaville 2/20/2010

wow Pros: yes Cons: no more

The best place to eat at while at City Walk ! 2/10/2008

This is a really fun place to dine at. The food and drinks are very good but are on the pricy side. The music is tops and it has a really fun atmosphere. The menu is somewhat limited but everyone should be able to find something they like. The nachos and the burgers are a definite must. This place gets very crowded when the park closes but if you get there about 30min before then you will be fine. Also, they have a cover charge after 9pm. Pros: Good food, atmosphere, music, and drinks Cons: Crowded, loud, cover charge after 9 more

Great Place 2/18/2007

A great place to hang out with your friends. Nice ambient, music and food. A little pricey but stills a nice place Pros: Ambient Cons: expensive more

Fun atmosphere, Not entirely appropriate for children on weekend nights 11/20/2006

Margaritaville is a great place to eat, drink and hang out with pals! I would recommend going with a group to get the most out of the fun atmosphere. Pros: Great atmosphere Cons: Parking more

Key West in Orlando! 3/16/2005

Service is great value is good especially if you purchase Dinner and a movie for $19.99 tax and tip included! People are usually friendly and service usuaaly good. We dine here 3-4 times a year. Pros: Food, Drink Cons: Wait more

wasted away...no way 6/17/2004

jb sings wasted away again in margaritaville-while it is true you can do that with the tasty beverage selection, you definitely will not waste your time or money with the feeding frenzy here the cheeseburgers are paradise and the boat drinks send you from citywalk to st somewhere the service is here and the affordability is beautiful Pros: service, atmosphere Cons: , wait time(sometimes) more

Parrothead 5/20/2004

Every time I've been to Margaritaville (4x) it's been a great time! The band, food, drink, and people are always awesome and everyone has a wonderful time! more

Margaritaville 2/5/2004

Anything concerning Margaritiaville is top notch! Leave your cares and worries behind and go to a place where it's always 5 o'clock! You will never find a better margarita! more

good music, too 8/24/2003

if you are there when Blue Stone Circle is playing, you are in for a treat!! They are a really great group!! They used to be at Disney for a while at the Beach Club, but Margaritaville got them!! Great entertainment and great voices to listen to!!!!! more

Awesome 7/6/2003

Everything was awesome. The food and drinks were great, the wait staff was friendly and the entertainment was fantastic. We enjoyed watching the margarita ""volcano"" erupt! more

Cheap?? 3/22/2003

Who wants food too pretty to eat? Yeah, everything in the menu only SOUND great but food is not much to praise about. Any stadium hot dog is better than this. Prices are high. Place is only for the tourist that can't find a better bargain. I admit this is a good place to drink and talk to the bartenders but how many Buffett songs can you listen to in one night? Pros: friendly staff, good atmosphere Cons: pricey, bad food more

Calamari 3/11/2003

Honestly, the reason I went there in the first place is because I love Jimmy. But now I am over the whole novelty of it and just go for the best Calamari I have ever eaten. It is a blast to hang out there too though. The bartenders are the best! more

Don't Miss Out on a Fantastic Meal 2/7/2003

No trip to Orlando would be complete without atleast one trip, if not two three, to Margaritaville! The Cheeseburger in Paradise is just that, pure paradise. The atomospere is great for families as well as couples. Don't miss this one...you'll be sorry! Pros: Fantastic Food, Fun Atmosphere, Inexspensive Cons: NONE!!!, NONE!!!!!, NONE!!!! more

Great food, good times 1/6/2003

I have been to Jimmy Buffet's several times in Orlando and in Key West. It is by far one of the best values, not to metion that the food is excellent. I plan eating many more times there when I return to Orlando. My whole family loves the atmosphere as well as the food. If you plan on eating there reserve your spot early in the day so you can get in. By closing time it is packed. more

NOT CHEAP EATS 12/19/2002

Loved it, but I can't say that a $18.00 cheeseburgrer is paradise!!!! Pros: music, kitch Cons: noise, food, cost more
