From The Sun News: “Jimmy Buffett eatery to land in Myrtle Beach”
Jimmy Buffett’s popular Margaritaville brand is bringing another restaurant concept to Myrtle Beach, with plans to build a Land Shark Bar & Grille on the oceanfront.
Land Shark, Margaritaville’s brewing company that makes Land Shark Lager known for its blue and yellow fin-wave logo, plans to open in May as part of the SkyWheel attraction, a nearly 200-foot-high Ferris wheel that is under construction beside Plyler Park.
The 3,000-square-foot restaurant will have mostly outdoor seating, said David Busker, president of Koch Development Co., which will operate the SkyWheel and is developing it along with Pacific Development. Busker declined to talk about the restaurant’s name and concept, but said Koch wanted to partner with anestablished operator to make the most of the restaurant’s good location on the oceanfront.
Officials are staying tight-lipped about the restaurant. Al Mers, a partner in Pacific Development, said Wednesday that he couldn’t comment about the restaurant until Dec. 15. The Myrtle Beach Community Appearance Board will likely consider the restaurant’s plan for signs on and around the restaurant building on Dec. 16.
