When hunger hits on the Las Vegas strip, you might consider wasting away at the Margaritaville restaurant. Found at the centrally located Flamingo Hotel, this Flamingo restaurant is a welcome place to hang out for a bit, before or after enjoying some gambling or taking in a live show. The Flamingo hotel is located next to Bally's, the Imperial Palace and Caesars Palace, so you can explore the gaming options at each and take your winnings to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere that you can expect to find at the Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville restaurants. When choosing a Flamingo restaurant, you can choose a romantic fine dining experience, try an authentic Japanese dish, suit your taste for Italian cuisine or grab a steak. But nowhere will the environment be so "tropical" as that which you will find at the Margaritaville restaurant.

When the first of the Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville restaurants opened in Key West in 1985, it marked a beginning of a growing chain of stores and restaurants that bring the "Margaritaville" state of mind to their visitors. "Margaritaville" is a term that more or less identifies the music and career of songwriter Jimmy Buffett. In 1977, Buffett released his mega-hit song, "Margaritaville", and he's been looking back ever since. The song is named after the cocktail drink, and its lyrics impart a reflection of the laid-back appeal of the tropical lifestyle. You can get that "Margaritaville" feeling when dining at any one of the Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville restaurants and cafes, which can be found in such places as Myrtle Beach, New Orleans, Orlando, Jamaica and Grand Cayman. In Las Vegas, the Margaritaville restaurant at the Flamingo hotel is where you can leave your troubles at the door and enjoy a good old Margaritaville moment on the Vegas strip.

At the Margaritaville Flamingo restaurant, there is plenty to keep your attention, aside from the savory menu items. This Caribbean-inspired restaurant is more like a venue, featuring the main restaurant itself, 5 unique bars, separate outdoor patios and nightly live entertainment. If you want to take home some Jimmy Buffett memorabilia, you can peruse the restaurant's large retail store. It couldn't hurt to have one more T-shirt after all. When it comes to the menu, there is something for most tastes here, whether you are in the mood for seafood or a juicy steak. You might try the grilled sirloin entree, which is topped in a tangy, pineapple-flavored rum sauce. Mashed potatoes and fresh, seasonal vegetables compliment the dish. Seafood lovers can choose from a list of desirable fresh fish dishes, with Mahi Mahi, Salmon, Tilapia and Grouper among the choices. Grilled or blackened, your fish is made to order with your choice of their unique sauces. If you're simply in the mood for a good burger, then the Margaritaville restaurant is the place to go as well. The "Cheeseburger in Paradise" is the signature burger at all the Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville restaurants. At 7 ounces, this choice, award-winning Angus burger is sure to fill you up. Topped with such burger staples as lettuce, tomato and red onion, you can ask them to hold the cheddar cheese, but it might be a mistake to do so.

The Margaritaville Flamingo restaurant is a mid-priced establishment where you can simply have a good time. While you are at the Flamingo hotel, you might compliment your Margaritaville restaurant experience with a spa treatment, some exciting Flamingo nightlife or by seeing what you can win at the 77,000 square-foot casino. The Flamingo also features a quality array of live shows, so you could take in a Toni Braxton concert, laugh out loud at the George Wallace comedy show, or watch the steamy numbers performed at the X Burlesque show. Regardless of what you choose to get into on the Vegas Strip, you'll always know that you can return to the Margaritaville restaurant at the Flamingo for a slice of that Margaritaville state of mind. The Margaritaville restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m.
