Diner Reviews
  • "We didn't enjoy any of our meals the taste was awful the only thing was the tea. We have never eaten there before and will never eat there again. We paid almost $80 and after we left we went into universal studios and ate again cause of the way the food tasted"

  • "As Tampa residents, we look forward to an Orlando getaway, about this time every year. Easy to get there, and have a great weekend with family and friends. What a fun time we had at Margaritaville, great food and festive atmosphere. We will definitely, add this to our traditional stay."

  • "Had a very good time when eating here. Make sure if you order the volcano nachos you have at least two people eating them. They are huge!! Drinks flow here and music is great. We ate here 2 times during our vacation. There are several different eating areas."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Great restaurant and location. On busy days make sure you have reservations or you will wait. Lots of flavorful boat drinks and great food. You are entertained the entire time you eat from people on stilts to volcanos erupting"

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "noise level was ridiculous. Couldn't carry on a conversation even yelling. The band was awful and way too loud. Even before the band started it was way too noisy."

  • "Good food, fun atmosphere! Not expensive but not cheap. Waitress was great, I think her name was Madeline I forget."

  • "We ate here on the first night of our vacation with our two girls (8 and 11) and it was a great start to the week. I'm not at all a Buffet fan, but the vibe of the restaurant was great and they played a great variety of music. We were there on a Sunday night and there were balloon makers on stilts to entertain the kids. Completely free ... wouldn't even take a tip! All of our meals were terrific and the service was friendly and not rushed."

  • "Laid back and relaxing after a full day in the park. Great live music on the deck. Service was polite but the food was slow. Not sure why because our order was fairly basic. We will go back for sure though!"

  • "I always look forward to a great experience at Margaritaville and this one did not disappoint. What better place to celebrate National Margarita Day than at the Jimmy Buffett mecca that is Margaritaville?! Love those volcano nachos- a great app to share with a large group. And it may be cliche to get a burger here, but they do it right."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Large, clean and "busy" (both with activity and the décor), it's what you'd expect in the middle of a Theme Park. The staff was courteous and we were seated promptly. The drinks were a little pricy and the food was OK (think "TGIF, Ruby Tuesday's, etc.), but its more about the atmosphere than anything else and we enjoyed the experience."

  • "While we loved this restaurant, I will echo what other reviewers have said. A reservation is not honored here. we made our reservation through open table, confirmed it through the concierge at our hotel and when we arrived, were told that there was a one and a half hour wait for a table. We left and returned the next day for lunch."

  • "We had a nice, surprisingly quick dinner at Margaritaville. While my margarita was not the best I had this weekend, it was good. The shrimp three ways was excellent and the service was quick and thoughtful. We dined early and it was very kid-friendly."

  • "Fun night out in city walk. Outdoor covered patio was loud due to entertainment, but good. food was your average pub style family freiendlly City walk dinner, worth the trip though"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "If they say you'll be seated at a certain time, and you're not, ask for a new buzzer. Ours was'nt working and our wait time ended up doubled!"

  • "Making a reservation on Open Table only puts you on a priority list. It is not a reservation!"

  • "Not as good as the last time I was there. I would rank it along with TGI Fridays."

  • "The food was adequate but the service was excellent. The entertainment was great and the balloons kept the kids entertained the whole time even though they were exhausted from a full day!"

  • "Loved this place. Great people watching spot too. The food was REALLY delicious. We ate a late lunch here when we arrived from our flight from Boston. And they accommodated my gluten free request with delicious gluten free bun for my blackened fish sandwich. SOOOO good. The servers and manager go above and beyond to assist you and want to make sure you are happy. We loved it so much, we went back for our last dinner while staying at Loews Royal Pacific hotel for our weekend Universal//IOA park visit. Thank you !"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Went to Margaritaville with a group of girls. We were so excited but our excitement turned to disappointment real quick! Our male server was rude and condescending. Food took forever to get there and was average quality, at best. Food and drinks were way too expensive for the quality. Ambience was good, had a live singer and drummer."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Always a fun place. I usually order a burger and it is always very good. Today, I ordered the Cobb Salad. It wasn't bad but I can't say it was great. I'll stick with the burger next time. My husband had a panini and he really enjoyed it. Energetic atmosphere"

  • "Like all the restaurants at City Walk, this restaurant was amazing. I made a reservation for 830P on a Saturday but came in early at 730P and it was only a 10-15 minute wait (and we made good use of the bar and cathcing up on the football game). Food was reasonably priced throughout as well. We had the fish and chips and buttermilk chicken, both so yummy and amazing. Our server, Becca, was impeccable as well. She was efficient but without being all over us. Becca would check on us at the right times, would bring what we asked for almost immediately. I wouldn't really go here for a romantic dinner, atmosphere was energetic, boastful and fun. Even though it was loud, music was playing, I could still here over our table just fine."

  • "Always a good time here! Good food, lots to drink and the music puts a smile on your face, guaranteed! A lot of fun, but the food is excellent as well. The staff are polite, courteous and attentive. Food arrives quickly - hot and delicious. Everyone sings, some people dance but I think everyone has a good time."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "It was very loud. The server pushed the most expensive margarita, and then didn't want to bring extra mixer when we explained that they were too strong. Not too good for $10 margaritas. Also, the server wasn't attentive about keeping water glasses filled. The food was pretty good. The shrimp skewers were good and the fish and chips was a large portion (enough to share). The garlic, peppers, and shrimp appetizer was tasty, but only came with three small pieces of bread for dipping in the sauce. The best part of the experience was the men on stilts making balloon creations. They were great!"

  • "seated on time, server seemed a bit out of sorts. Down side, we ordered burgers which were good,except, my burger came in contact with shell fish as evidenced by the allergic reaction I had that night . Guess next time I need to make sure they know to not allow my food come into contact with any shell fish"
