It's just a Bar and I don't know what is the fuzz about exactly. Giving it 4* rating because of the size and a shop, but it's not cheap or anything special.

We were down in Key West for the Thanksgiving weekend and decided to have dinner at Margaritaville. There were six of us and three ordered the Cheeseburger in Paradise. As usual, the quality was good. There were no complaints. My daughter had the nachos. It turned out to be enough for two. One of us had the Cuban sandwich, and... More

Great to visit the first ever Margaritaville! Love Key West and can't go better than having lunch in Key West at Margaritaville. You have to have a Land Shark lager here and was impressed with the meals. We were there with friends and all enjoyed their meals. Great spot and a must do when on Key West for all you... More

Typical tourist, stopped in for a few drinks and decided to soak them up with a bite to eat. We order the peel and eat shrimp, although it was well presented they were the worst shrimp I've had. The shrimp were small, boiled with some seasoning thrown over the top that when you peel the shell there was no flavor... More

We were wandering down Duval Street when we got hungry. We decided to split some appetizers at Margaritaville for a late lunch. It is early in December and the crowds were not totally crazy so we were able to walk in during the afternoon and get a table. We ordered peel and eat shrimp and nachos. Were we in for... More

Okay, even if you are not a Jimmy Buffett fan, this is the place the song is all about, and if in Key West it's a MUST stop. Their "Perfect Margarita" is an awesome drink. The Conch fritters are the best we've tasted. If you like spicy, then go for the Jambalaya - if not, then anything else should be... More
