Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville restaurant opened for business on Monday in Destin, Florida.

from The Destin Log:

With the cut of a ribbon, over-the-top margaritas and enough fanfare to make Mickey Mouse jealous, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is ready to “let the fin begin” after Monday’s grand opening.

“I can’t begin to tell you how excited we are to be here,” said Flavio Yepo, the restaurant’s general manager.

The 27,000-square foot, harbor front restaurant is the newest edition to HarborWalk Village. The Buffett-inspired eatery was packed to the gills with hungry residents, news media and Parrot Heads.

With both indoor and outdoor seating, Margaritaville sits in the former home of Lucky Snapper along the harbor, and features enough seating for more than 400 guests.

Margaritaville has already hired and trained more than 200 employees to work in its Destin location.

As for whether the famed singer will make an appearance? You’ll just have to keep an eye and ear open as Buffett is known to play impromptu shows at his various restaurants nationwide.
