“Yum Yum Yum”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We ate here after one of our Port Excursions because we were looking for something different to eat. The service was wonderful - our waitress was awesome (wish I could remember her name for this review). The food was delicious! You can even get a souvenir cup if you'd like to buy one. There is also a gift shop and a pool in the restaurant complete with a slide. Great atmosphere, great food and great service! Be aware they charge in Cayman dollars but will convert it to US dollars.

“OMG bad experience”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Well I definitely wouldn't recommend eating here nor drink. Our drinks were very watered down and appies were great but rest of food was bad, raw fries and they just didn't care. Didn't look or feel fun like the on in Vegas. We loved one in Vegas, this one I don't not recommend you go to at all. DONT waste your time travelers. Over priced for what you are getting, advertise free wifi but didn't work, advertised air conditioning and it was a huge fan so we baked....44 C
:( jimmy Buffett would close the doors that day if he walked through.

It was disappointing reading your review, and we apologize for your less than extraordinary experience during your time with us. We have noted your comments regarding the watered down drinks and undercooked food, and wish to assure you that what occurred during your visit is neither a part of our operational culture nor our high operational standards. We have shared your comments with the relevant teams for immediate review, as it appear that we failed to deliver on these high standards during your time with us. We have also noted your comments regarding the complimentary WiFi, and wish to apologize for its unavailability, as this could have been attributed to a number of factors such as an equipment malfunction or an issue on the part of the service provider. With regard to the air conditioning, we have shared your comments with our maintenance team for investigation. Margaritaville Grand Cayman has a section which is open air as well as an air conditioned section. Our maintenance team will ensure that there is no recurrence of the lack of air conditioning. We thank you for visiting, and hope that despite your experience, you will give us another chance to extend to you and yours a much more positive experience.

“Convenient tourist trap”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Spent a day in town as part of a cruise. After shopping, wandering upon Margaritaville near the main shopping area and not far from the port. Food and drinks were what I expected from previous visits to the restaurant - tasty, practical, average priced for the restaurant type (pricy - but I expect that based on the chain and the tourist attraction). Restaurant was clean and service was prompt - maybe too prompt as our server rushed us to order despite the restaurant being half full at best. I enjoyed sitting on a balcony overlooking the street. Loved the pool and water slide. One note - prices on the menu are NOT in US dollars, but the servers were good at reminding everyone of this, and they will calculate the check in USD if you prefer.

“Third time no charm,Margaritaville,Grand Cayman.”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This was our third time to Margaritaville and our last The Bartender was to busy playing with the T.V.. Did'nt make a good drink,food was ok.Went to cash out with a coupon and they had no idea what to do.Had to find a manager,Then had to make to different copys.Then could not figure out how to make change.And then to make things worse,they shorted us on the change.After all that we said the heck with it and left.There was only 5 people in the bar.Maybe Mr.Buffett should pay more attention to this place.AND to everyone who signed dollor bills to hang or signed on the walls.ITS ALL GONE.THEY PAINTED OVER IT ALL.

“Margaritaville in Grand Cayman”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Swim up to the bar and have a drink. Each Margaritaville I have visited has a unique look. Our family enjoys visiting as many as we can. Grand Caymen Margaritaville does not dissapoint. The waitstaff is friendly and inviting and the food is delicious. Try to get a seat outside on the deck facing the water. It is pricey, but we found the cost of food to be above the average we would pay in the states. However, this is an island and everything must be shipped in.
