The food and service was poor. We ordered the nachos, which looked amazing but they were soggy. The server was slow moving and we had arrived on a catamaran tour so we only had an hour. We had to ask for the check 3-4 times before she actually brought it. Then she didn't give the correct change and turned around... More

Our resort brought us here for a small shopping trip and lunch. Great food and great entertainment. It was worth the shuttle ride! The drinks were amazing and it was nice to have good quality food. It is a little pricey but worth it!

I signed up for the Dunns River Catamaran excursion during my stay. They dropped us off at Margueritaville for lunch at the end of it. Very much the same as in Negril. It's beach front and the menu is classic American. Expensive as well. But the food is good, and it has real party atmosphere. Nice place to go.

By far the best jerk chicken and festival I've had. We went to another restaurant that was included in an excursion and the jerk chicken was very tough and dry. But here it was amazing and I love the spin they put on their jerk sauce. Yum

This place has the energy and vibes fit for a younger crowd. I did enjoy the music but I was a little older than the other patrons. All in all, I would go back again.

I love the food, drink and music. Always a great party place or just a place to relax. I love listening to the Margaritaville song and buying souvenirs from there

I have been here a few times - unfortunately one time was during spring break and definitely got crazy. If you have never been at least check it out once. Items are a little pricey being a chain restaurant but the atmosphere is awesome. Pool inside with a water slide and beach access as well

If you decide to go to Margaritaville I would suggest that you visit at lunch time. The food and cocktails are ok. The menu is basically American Fare, the service is good. You can walk here if you are staying in the heart of Ocho Rios.

Pretty beach, but full of people trying to sell drugs & everything else. Very expensive drinks & meals
