Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville — Located at the Broadway at the Beach shopping/dining/entertainment complex, this laid-back eatery founded by the beach- and boat-loving crooner identified in its name serves up a selection “Burgers in Paradise” — including ones “with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes,” sandwiches, salads, and heavier entrees like fajitas, seafood, ribs and steak. In the margarita department, the restaurant’s name and the way-larger-than-life giant blender (and the frozen concoction it will render) show what a big attraction the drinks are here. The margarita menu’s lineup includes the Perfect Margarita with Margaritaville Gold and Silver Tequila, triple sec, Bols Orange Curaçao and lime juice; the Uptown Top Shelf Margarita with Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Cointreau Orange Liqueur and a house margarita blend, all topped with a Gran Gala Orange Liqueur float; and the Last Mango in Paris with Margaritaville Last Mango Tequila, Cointreau Orange Liqueur, cranberry juice and a house margarita blend — just to name a few.
