Sit back, relax, and enjoy a taste of the island life at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville in Panama City Beach, Florida. Conveniently located the Pier Park shopping center in the heart of PCB, this Gulfside restaurant, bar, and entertainment destination makes a perfect outing for everyone from families, friends, couples, and, of course, Parrotheads!
Margaritaville Panama City Beach recently expanded its menu, refreshing the coastal-inspired offerings with over fifteen new items that are sure to have your taste buds feeling like they’re on vacation, even if you’re a local! The fun, island-inspired atmosphere includes décor ranging from a table inside a pontoon boat, a Clipper plane soaring overhead to its own private island, and smooth island sounds from Jimmy and other favorites such as the Beatles, James Taylor, The Eagles, and many many more. (You can listen to Radio Margaritaville 24/7 on Sirius XM satellite radio!)
Be sure to split an appetizer (or two, or three!) with your friends, such as the brand-new “Drunken” Shrimp Skillet: shrimp sautéed in tequila key lime butter, roasted garlic and peppers with a mini baguette for dipping—yum! The Asiago Crab Dip, filled with lump crabmeat and served with grilled crostini is another new option that’s sure to become an old favorite.
The Bites section of the menu features small plates that are perfect for sharing with the whole table, like the Maryland-Style Crab Cake Slider, topped with shredded lettuce and jalapeño tartar sauce; a Grilled Shrimp Skewer, seasoned with a jerk glaze; and Beach Tacos with Carne Asada (Steak), Pork Carnitas, or Chicken Tinga.
Of course, Margaritaville staples such as the Cheeseburger in Paradise and Crispy Coconut Shrimp are still on the menu, but even they have gotten an upgrade that’ll knock those Hawaiian-print socks right off you. Share with your buds while listening to some jams on the outdoor deck. Margaritaville PCB features live music every night on the patio with a Gulf view that’s perfect for watching the sunset.
Fins up! You didn’t think we’d forget about the boat drinks, did you? Grab a Landshark Lager and talk about your day on the beach, or if you’re up for something fruity—maybe even frozen?—the new Margaritas and Boat Drinks menu offers too many new cocktails, tequilas, margaritas and boat drinks to list! A few highlights include:
- Blueberry Pomegranate Margarita: Margaritaville Silver Tequila, Cointreau® Orange Liqueur, blueberry pomegranate purée
- Planter’s Punch: Appleton Rum VX, Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum, freshly blended sweet and sour, pineapple juice, pomegranate and a dash of bitters.
- The Watermelon Agave Fresca: with Margaritaville Silver Tequila, watermelon puree and the proprietary lime agave blend with a splash of soda
- And an abundant collection of Tequilas served as shots with sangrita, the tomato based chaser made in house
Last but not least, don’t skip dessert! The classic Key Lime Pie and Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding are enough to give you a sugar high, but for large groups and special occasions—or anytime, really!—go for the Chocolate Hurricane: vanilla bean ice cream served with brownies, Kit Kat and Heath bars, pirouette and mini shortbread cookies, sliced bananas, whipped cream, and chopped macadamia nuts, swirled tableside with chocolate and caramel sauces. You might need an evacuation plan to get out of your seat!
Stop by and say hi to the laid-back, friendly team at Margaritaville, and don’t forget to stop by the Gift Shop on your way out! They have all your Margaritaville gear from clothing, flip-flops, Tervis products, coffee mugs, hats, and jewelry, as well as Jimmy Buffett music and more! If you weren’t a Parrothead when you came in, you might just be a convert by the time you leave.
