JIMMY BUFFETT’S MARGARITAVILLE at Universal CityWalk Ratings and Reviews
The service and food was very good. Great value for the money. Our group consisted of 7 adults and everyone was happy with their meal choices. We all also enjoyed the music. Our appetizers came out promptly and our main coarse even though it was extremely busy! Will definitely visit again!@
Be careful they did not recognize the OpenTable reservation and said they are getting rid of it. We waited an extra 40 minutes. Stephanie, a manager, was fantastic with us once we had a table. She took care of us and apologized which meant a lot to my hungry family.
We had a great experience. We had planned a day at SeaWorld and then realized that nothing would be open for lunch on Christmas Day... except theme parks. So, we stopped at city walk before SeaWorld and had a quick birthday lunch for my 5year old son. The waiter comp'd his birthday dessert and we had a GREAT seat with a view of islands of adventure. There was a vegetarian/glutenfree menu and we tried our best to make it a little cliser to vegan. (Wasnt terribly hard) but the veggie burgers are made with eggs. Great experience and priced about the same as other places on citywalk. We will go again next time we are in Orlando.
Make sure to check your statement afterwards if you use a CC. I was over charged $31.50. Contacted the restaurant and with no followup from them. My bank has issued the refund, but nothing from the restaurant. This has made me not want to ever go back to Margaritaville.
My 8 year old daughter has Celiac Disease and must eat gluten free and avoid cross contamination... The chef came to our table twice and put our minds at ease about the precautions taken to allow her to enjoy a safe meal. I greatly appreciate the effort of the chef!
We made reservations at Universal Margaritaville and were pleased to have been seated right on time (though we did check in 25 minutes early). We had a table of seven, which included four adults and three hungry children. We did not order appetizers, quickly ordered our food right after our drinks, and began a wait for our food that expanded to almost 90 minutes! Unfortunately, this was an unacceptable wait for three children who had enjoyed the park all day and were tired and hungry. Especially when we noticed customers seated after us were served before us, and leaving before our food arrived.
Fresh fish dishes were wonderful, Coconut Shrimp dish was unfortunately cold, but still tasty, and the Jambalaya received rave reviews from those who ordered this dish.
Fun, EXTRA LOUD, crazy atmosphere. We were meeting friends we had not seen in several months so were hoping to have table conversation. That was not easily possible in this scene. So it depends on what you are looking for in atmosphere. I would feel comfortable recommending this restaurant to someone looking for a fun evening with lots of time on their hands.
I was so disappointed in the reception from front desk staff. We eat here yearly and have never been told to "just wait," when we had a reservation and the other parties being seated didn't. The receptionist was overwhelmed and surly. The waitress was nice. Food is pretty good. The highlight of the night was the fun island ambiance. Margaritas are always good, though the bartender was very busy and we had to wait 20 mins for the 2 margaritas we ordered. I don't think I'll go back - City Walk has a number of touristy restaurants that are good and available. I would hope that a staple restaurant would know that there is a convention in town and a large group from a neighboring state with a school holiday and prepare for it. A poor showing for sure.
