We went to happy hour every night at Margaritaville and sat in the tire swing bar, sipping frozen margaritas and munching on conch fritters and other appetizers. We ate dinner there twice, and had great meals both times. If you're a parrothead, you'll love it. If you're not you'll still appreciate the friendly atmosphere, tropical colors, and laid-back atmosphere. There's a gift shop adjacent to the restaurant that's a must do for parrotheads too.

There were bars in NOLA I would be uncomfortable in, but this place was as family-oriented as you will find in the French Quarter. On occasion, Jimmy strolls in off the street and has a drink or sings with the musician who is performing, but we weren't lucky enough to see him there. If you don't want to spend your money there, at least check out the decor!
