The food was excellent. We ordered five meals with not one complaint. We had steaks, lobster, etc. Everything was hot and prepared correctly. The service was outstanding. They made balloon animals and hats for the kids. They have a DJ and/or live music depending on what time it is. The live band was all Mexican singing American songs. It was just a riot. Every so often the waiters get up on stage and do a dance.
Very entertaining for all ages! We went twice in one week. We would definitely go back again next time we visit Cancun.

I feel that the major attraction at Pat O’Brien’s is the evening meal. The menu contains a selection of steaks, seafood, and salads, with a few local dishes thrown in the mix. My wife and I ordered two pitchers of the famous Pat O’Brien’s hurricanes to start the evening, then she ordered the fresh filet of fish and I ordered the porterhouse steak. The waiter not only took the orders, but entertained the customers by carrying the drink orders on his head. It is amazing to see the waiters as they carry up to 10 drinks balanced on their heads without dropping the drinks or spilling the contents.
However, the food and the atmosphere were not the only ways that we enjoyed ourselves. A very capable rock band played covered of a wide variety of music from the rock world (oldies from the Beach Boys through modern selections by U2 and Selena). They performed from about 8pm until midnight. About once every hour the waiters all go to the stage and dance to "Cotton-Eyed Joe", then return to serving. This reminds me a little of the bar scenes from the movie Coyote Ugly.
First-time visitors to Pat O’Brien’s may be surprised by the long line of customers waiting to be seated. The line is only an indication of the quality of the food and the popularity of the entertainment that can be found at this restaurant. The line occurs from around 6 - 9pm. Afterwards it is easier to get in to enjoy this establishment.
After a wonderful evening of food and music, my wife and I returned to Pat O’Brien’s for breakfast. This time we were treated to a nice breakfast buffet for about $6 - $7. The meal consisted of international favorites such as pancakes, French toast, bacon, sausage, eggs, ham, sweet rolls, and Mexican favorites such as chorizo, refried beans, fried bananas, rice, and other dishes. It was also possible to have the chef cook a specialty omelet for this meal. Again, we left the restaurant filled and happy for the experience.
