Margaritaville, New Orleans, was a surprise for me. Never having visited more than the Las Vegas location, I wasn't disappointed in the drinks, food, or service. In fact, the coziness of the N.O. location made it feel a little more ""homey"". The drinks are always top notch, the food is...well, some items are just plain bar and pub choices, while others are a little more involved. There is something on the menu for everyone. The service was good but a little disoriented when we were first seated; I never had to wait on anything so no complaints, it just took a while to figure out who our actual server was. Each member of management came by and checked on our satisfaction; some hung around and had ""tourist"" conversation, which I personally welcome although some do not. Everyone was friendly as I expected, and yes there are alot of tourists there so the crowds come and go. The gift shop is like any of the other locations, a little cramped but had plenty of choices for merchandise. I recommend going there if for nothing else than to see the decor, have yourself a 'rita, and enjoy the tunes!
