Hard core fans of Jimmy Buffet come to Margaritaville for two things made famous in his songs, margaritas and a cheeseburger. Those not so familiar with the entertainer come here for the fun, casual atmosphere and mighty fine Florida/Caribbean inspired cuisine.
The expansive restaurant features a three-story volcano that erupts over the Volcano Bar, spilling Margarita mix into two giant 300-gallon blenders while big screen TV’s show videos of the song that inspired the restaurant…and the crowd goes wild!
While margaritas and cheeseburgers are the main attractions, we recently sampled some exceptional dishes. Appetizers were huge, most can serve two (or more) easily. We loved the Ahi Tuna Tostados, fried wontons topped with spicy seared Ahi tuna, daikon, Asian aioli, seaweed salad, soy glaze and chili oil.
We also loved our Jerk Salmon. The absolutely perfectly grilled, moist salmon filet was topped with an amazing jerk BBQ sauce and served with a spicy mango chutney we were eating by the spoonful (Perfect Margaritas will do that to you!). The Jerk Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya were equally well executed.
Deserts were all equally impressive, but take our advice and do not miss the key lime pie. This is the real deal and possibly the best key lime pie this pie lover has had. Ever.
Located at 3555 Las Vegas Blvd, it’s an easy stroll from Caesar’s Palace just across the street.
