Get whisked away to the islands at Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett's iconic chain inspired by his breezy beats and island lifestyle. Located through the casino and directly on Las Vegas Boulevard, the multi-level Caribbean-themed restaurant features two outdoor patios. Sip on its signature blended libations and party with fellow "Parrotheads"—the nickname given to the flock of Buffett's devoted followers.
An all-encompassing hot spot, Margaritaville features a 12,000-square-foot, three level restaurant with six bars and live entertainment nightly both indoors and outdoors.
Its nautical influences are woven into everything from the décor to the drinks, menu and music.
As much a state of mind as it is a place, Margaritaville encourages guests to relax, imbibe and chow down on a "Floridian" menu that reflects the flavors of Buffett's island travels. For the table, start with the eye-popping Volcano Nachos, a tower of tortilla chips, cheddar cheese, olives and chili. Buffett's signature is the famous Cheeseburger in Paradise with a whopping seven ounce patty and all the toppings.
Want to take home a piece of the islands? Snag one of the 45 ounce souvenir blender cups with a dispensing spout or visit the attached 3,000-square-foot retail store.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
"Fun" is the watchword at this "party"-hearty American in the Flamingo, a "beach-themed", "wasting-the-day-away" kind of joint via musician Jimmy Buffett; it’s "priced right" and those "margaritas are mixed to perfection."
"Reminiscent of the vibrancy of a Jimmy Buffet show, Margaritaville is a lively, colorful, three-story eatery with a retail logo store at its entrance. The centerpiece of the tropically themed main floor dining room is the signature bar over which a volcano periodically deposits tequila into a huge blender."
"Parrotheads aren't the only ones flocking to this faux Caribbean paradise, an enormous three-level place with gift shop. You'll love the crunchy conch fritters, creamy corn and crab chowder and barbecued ribs marinated in guava puree. Oh, and the margaritas aren't bad at all."
