Always enjoy Margaritaville, especially with lots of family on a beautiful January day that allowed us to eat on the deck and enjoy the views of the Gulf. Waiter was great & patient with our large group of 14, Food was very yummy as usual!

We arrived in PC Beach on Christmas Day and this rested aunt was one of the few open. It was crowded as you would expect and the wait was not overly long. Service was good but a little slow. The waitress was not the issue and was apologetic about the wait, but did complain that the restaurant did not have... More

The service was good, atmosphere great but the food was terrible and SO over priced. The quality of food is poor- the quesadilla was simply shredded chicken and grated cheese in a tortilla- that's it. The fries that came with the hamburger were cold. The Bourbon glazed salmon was so over cooked that the bourbon glaze would crunch in your... More

We usually try to just frequent the local restaurants but some of our crew wanted to go to Margaritaville. In my opinion, the food is just average and def not over the top to support the prices. You can get better, cheaper food at the locally owned restaurants.

This place is ok. We went for the name but the food is pricey with few options and little originality. It was clean, lively and we were seated fast for dinner. We started off with one server and ended with another with no explanation. No large crowd (at all as it was in between Christmas and New Years Eve) that... More

Considering it was New Year's Eve, the service was ok. Had to wait for a table an hour at 6:00. The food was ok. Nothing great. The thing about this location is it is near the beach and a great place to watch the fireworks.

This area has a lot of great local joints. That being said, it is fun to hit a chain like Margaritaville. The food was good and the staff was very friendly. We had better meals at a lower price, which is why I cannot give it a five. If you are a Buffett fan, you will wan to at least... More

We had an early dinner so we could visit the various places in the mall prior to welcoming in the New Year. We were seated immediately and our orders were placed. Except for one of the children, a 7 year old who simply ordered mac and cheese, all the other orders were specially made to our specifications. Food was served... More
