Diner Reviews
  • "My boyfriend and I LOVE Margaritaville, are favorite things are: Seafood Mac & Cheese, Asiago Crab dip and Perfect Margarita's I do have to say that with the 10+ times we have been to the Orlando location together we have only had good service from wait staff on one occassion, it seems the Orlando location does not require a high standard of service. But we love the place so keep going back!"

  • "disappointing that the part of the restaurant we were seated at was not large enough for our table of 6. it was an uncomfortable seating arrangement. we could hear no music at all and no festival mood at all in the area we were seated.. have been there before and much more enjoyable."

  • "This is our second time to a Margaritaville. First time was in Jamaica where we got burgers and an entree. We were amazed when an order of nachos passed by our table...it was huge. We decided a that moment that we would order them at our next visit. Orlando's Margaritaville was clean, friendly, and lively. The nachos were great!!!!! They were enough for 3 of us to share for lunch."

  • "We made a reservation on Open Table, and arrived about 15 minutes late (just due to being unfamiliar with City Walk). The retaurant didn't seem to have record of our reservation, but the host was very accomodating and we were given a beeper and seated within 15 minutes. Service was great. The restaurant was pretty busy, but we were able to place our order and get our drinks quickly. While we waited for dinner, we were treated to an entertaining couple of men who walked around in stilts and made balloon characters for the kids. They were very friendly and we loved it! The food was good-not exactly great, but perfectly good, and the price was what we would have expected at this very touristy location. All in all a very good experience!"

  • "We waited 20 minutes after our reservation time - this was stated as a possibility in the confirmation e mail. Service fast , efficient and friendly . Food excellent, noise level - too much for us but there was a mixed crowd enjoying themselves . Stilted entertainers very good but did ask if we wanted to participate , rather than forcing themselves on us"

  • "Pleasantly surprised at the food here, and the service. It's a fun spot for a decent meal with your pals. Fish Tacos and Fish and Chips were popular with our group, with absolutely no complaints. Attentive service, too. Live music was too loud at times, unless you are a Parrot Head. So if you MUST dine at City Walk, this is a decent choice."

  • "I made a Father's Day reservation in advance for an early dinner as we have young kids. We were hoping to sit downstairs where they have the people coming around making the balloon animals to help entertain the kids while we wait for our food however we were sat upstairs and by the bar. I ordered a there top rated burger and my husband the surf and turf needless to say we were not happy. My burger was just eh, my husband's steak was over cooked and he got 3 little shrimp as the "surf", and even our kids chicken strips were over cooked! The only plus was our waitress who was great! She kept checking in on us, kept our drinks filled and was very friendly. Sadly we will go see Jimmy in concert again but we won't be back to his restaurant."

  • "We had rushed into town after a 9 1/2 hour drive, the restaurant was very accommodating with our reservation and our server got us in and out of the place quickly since we had tickets to a show. I love this place always fun and friendly with huge portions."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I'm glad we tried this because the atmosphere is very fun, especially if you're a Jimmy B fan (great music). Drinks were very good, food was just ok. The dessert shooters sounded good but were disappointing - seems like they are premade and chilled, leaving the cake portion dry. Service was good. Fun gift shop too."

  • "Face it, you dont go for the culinary experience. So food was as good or better than expected. We were seated in the upstairs bar cafe area but that was okay as we dont like it as loud as the main floor. Asked to get in and out to see a movie. They were fast. They had a Pirate on stilts doing ballons for kids. Good mix of kid entertainment and adult beverages. Everyone liked the food and we ordered across the menu."

  • "Not easy to get to unless you are already at Universal. The food is average, nothing special. The whole deal about the volcano is overblown. No reason to go back."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The food was okay. We were served over baked, dry, film on the cheese pretzel appetizers that got sent back. Burgers were sizeable but tasteless. Caesar salad was drenched in dressing. Fish and chips and calamari were the best items we ate, but still not the greatest. Disappointed - what we thought would be a fun restaurant with great food, was just fun."

  • "I wish I could have said my overall experience was great. The food was great the surroundings were great however the waitress was not. Right from the beginning the waitress had a bad attitude for what reason I don't know. She couldn't even refill our drinks."

  • "Great location on the City walk. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. My steak wasn't that great it was a bit on the tough side, but my son enjoyed his burger. You cant go wrong with Land shark beer. Set up very nicely and the music is always good at any Margaritaville. "

My dinner reservation at 8:30 could not be found in their computor system when we arrived at 8:15.The host was friendly and handed me a pager.We were seated within 20 at a good table near the main stage.Within a few mi m min we were greeted by a waitress and served great specialty drinks.All six of us had enjoyed the food and the live band."

Kim promptly took care of the issue. Very good atmosphere, exciting and energetic, do if you are looking for a quiet romantic place this is not it. A lot of fun!"

  • "My husband and I loved this place. He got the fish and chips and I tried to eat the volcano nachos. Needless to say he ended up helping me and we still didnt finish it. I had the watermelon margarita and it waa good. Not very watermelony though. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "One of the reasons we continue to return to Margaritaville is their consistent effort to make customer satisfaction their number one priority. They always have gluten free options (2 people in my family have allergies) and a fun menu to satisfy any picky eater. On this particular visit, the service was good but it took over an hour to get our food. When we asked the waitress to check on our meals the manager came over immediately, apologized for the lengthy delay which is not the norm and provided us a discount for our inconvenience. We hadn't needed to complain, they simply recognized that this is not the level of service they are known for. I will continue to visit this location whenever I am in Orlando because of their efforts. "

  • "We had an excellent night celebrating our 15 yr old daughters birthday. She had a great night and loved being asked to get up and dance with her sister with the 2 entertainers on stilts. She said it was a great birthday! The food and drinks were fantastic and we were seated fairly quickly with the priority Seating and our server was guick and efficient."

  • "We have been here numerous times. We made a reservation a few days before as this place can get busy. We got there and it was not all that busy, asked to sit outside and was directed to go outside and see the greeter. Got outside and asked for a table for 2. Stood there for about 10+ min while the hostess seemed to walk around in circles with the seating chart all confused - they finally put us at a table - shoved in the corner near the door - when 50% of the patio was empty. Waited for another 5min and still not greeted. Walked up to the manager/hostess handed back our menu's and told them they needed to fix their seating...and left and went inside. Everything was flawless inside from the seating, meals, server. "

  • "The staff at Margaritaville were great! They are very accomodating & friendly. The drinks are great & so is the food. Though I wish that they had more of a vegetarian selection. Overall it was a fun night with the family. FYI do make reservations before hand & OpenTable makes it super easy to do this. "

  • "Made reservations for 7:15 on Thursday night. Went to restaurant at 7:10 and they said that a 7:15 priority seating with open table just gets your name in as though you showed up at 7:15. It will still be an hour and a half wait. We were stunned. I asked what the point of making a reservation was then. They had no reply. Spoke to manager and she did not know why they said that to me but she would get us right in. Waited til 8, then cut our losses and left. Don't count on them to recognize open table reservations."

  • "Part of the Margaritaville chain of restaurants. The food is exactly what you'd expect and they do what they do very well. Stick with the burgers and basic stuff and you can't go wrong. If you are looking for a fun place to take the kids after a long day at the Universal Studio parks then this is it. It’s very efficiently operated...it’s always busy but the wait is never too long. Try to make a reservation if you can. The wait staff are always super-friendly and helpful. The comprehensive immersion in all things Jimmy Buffet might be a deterrent for some non-Parrothead types, but you just need to sip a few Margaritas and go with the flow. No point trying to fight it. The adjoining merchandise store is also a good place to buy gifts."

  • "Orange Avenue was soooooo much fun! They played everything from the 80s up until today & were such high energy! A really fun band to dance to with all of my girlfriends during our girls get away weekend to Orlando. The restaurant is tons of fun too and food was really good with fantastic service. We ate dinner & planned to leave after, but when the band came on we loved the music and energy so much we ended up closing the place!"

  • "We LOVE the margaritas here!!! WAY over-priced, but worth it for the most part. The food seems to be the run-of-the-mill average food. My husband and I both had burgers, which had good flavor but nothing special. Ok service, though our waitress was pretty busy."
