Food was good food and a good value. Drinks we small and expensive. Band was outstanding, not to loud but loud enough.

Went here this evening or should say attempted to dine here before a show. We waited an hour and half and never got our food. We had to leave before they caught, killed and prepared our food apparently. The manager made no attempt to correct their mistake of losing our order. DO NOT GO HERE

We went to Margaritaville Cincinnati on a Saturday early evening right after the Cubs/Reds game. It did not appear that busy, but we were told a 25 minute wait for a table of 3. No big deal, we waited it out in the casino and actually got a table within 10 minutes. We were seated promptly and again, the restaurant... More

Waited close to 45 minutes for food, 20 minutes for change from check. We were the only table in the entire place waiting for food at 6:30. Waitress was apologetic but that was it. No it doesn't take that long for friend shrimp and fries, despite your insistence. Food was good once it actually game. Which is why this place... More

We went here after the Reds and Cubs game we only saw a handful of people with Reds or Cubs gear on. For a Saturday night it was pretty slow, even though the casino was packed. We have been to this location multiple time in the past and it was great. On this visit though not so much, like I... More

Entertaining atmosphere - the night I visited there were people on stilts making balloon hats for everyone, fun. I think I would return to visit the bar and/or have some drinks on the awesome porch (overlooking the casino's outdoor concert venue) and skip the pricey food menu.

I've been to this Margaritaville several times since it's been open and always with the same results. Food that isn't even as good as a Ruby Tuesday's, service that is generally slow, and even the margaritas aren't much to write home about. This might work for this chain when it's on a beach with a great view but there is... More

Great service by Pace, attentive and quick. He knows his menu and is very helpful with selections. Food was great and service excellent. Quite enough for easy conversation but lively enough to entertain you. All and all a good place for after work fun, or just anytime.

Description
Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at the Horseshoe Casino in downtown Cincinnati for the ultimate tropical experience. Located beside the casino’s main entrance, the restaurant’s natural materials, exposed wood and warm tropical colors create a welcoming, laid back atmosphere with unique dining spaces, a concert stage and multiple bars. A large exterior deck overlooks the Horseshoe’s performance lawn where guests may enjoy alfresco dining, a drink topped off with a gentle breeze or possibly a live performance on the lawn. After dinner the laid-back tropical atmosphere transitions to a light night scene with dancing and live music every night of the week.
