Enjoy the Island Life at Margaritaville
Famed singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett crooned about a mythical paradise called Margaritaville, but that little slice of island life is mythical no more.
Margaritaville is both real, located at Myrtle Beach's popular Broadway at the Beach complex, and real fun, highlighting the laid-back beach lifestyle that inspired many of Buffett's books and songs. Featuring the flavors and spirits of the Gulf Coast and Caribbean, a meal at Margaritaville is like the best hurricane party ever.
A large outdoor patio deck in the heart of Hero's Harbour overlooks Lake Broadway and features an outdoor stage with live music and performances held regularly in the evenings. Featuring a docked boat and a lighthouse, Margaritaville serves as Myrtle Beach's version of Mallory Square in Key West, the perfect place to watch sunset.
The party carries over indoors, too, with a huge bar area and island-themed dining area providing a festive place to dine. An oversized blender creates a hurricane warning and Buffett's vast musical collection, along with other bands of similar styles, play over the sound system while patrons sing along to their favorite tunes.
But visitors tend to get quiet when once their food arrives at their table. Unique appetizers, such as the Crab, Shrimp and Mushroom Dip, the Lava Lava Shrimp and Conch Fritters, along with more traditional favorites, like the Volcano Nachos, Quesadillas and Chicken Wings (try the Jamaican Mistaica sauce), are perfect for starters.
Margaritaville offers a creative line of salads (the Lobster, Crab and Shrimp Salad with Jalapeno-Mango Ranch Dressing), sandwiches (the Cuban Pork Sandwich), soups (Corn and Crab Chowder) and, of course, Cheeseburgers in Paradise. But be sure to save room for the main course, a collection of tasty entrees from both surf and turf.
You don't have to be a Parrothead to enjoy the fun, food and frozen drinks at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, but many find themselves converts after one taste of the Margaritaville experience.
