Last weekend, I took Allen to Atlantic City, NJ for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. For lunch, we went to Landshark Bar & Grill, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville
right on the beach. The weather was mid-80s and not humid, and a perfect summer day to be on the Atlantic City boardwalk and beach. Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville opened around Memorial Day at Resorts and we were looking forward to eating here, since it is right on the beach.

The menu at Landshark Bar & Grill is casual fare and is mainly sandwiches, salads, burgers, hot dogs, and a host of drinks with the Jimmy Buffet signature, such as the Five O'clock Somewhere. We chose to sit beach side instead of indoors since the weather was so beautiful. The view was great, and we watched a boat race and enjoyed the ocean breeze. When you walk into Landshark, you are greeted by beautiful surf decor, a framed photo of Jimmy Buffet and Landshark Surfshack gift shop. The beach theme is all over the bar and restaurant area, and it is a big space. I love the outdoor space since you have the beach as your back drop, but for bad weather days or when you need to be in air conditioning, the indoor space is ideal. I love the way Landshark is designed. It is open and comfortable.

We arrived around 1:00pm and Landshark was packed! The host offered to take our picture by a Landshark sign which was very nice of her since we hardly ever get pictures of the two of us. We waited 5 minutes to be seated beach side, and our server was good and while very busy, he checked up on us a few times.

For our appetizer, we ordered Broiled Oysters on the Half Shell
. The oysters tasted fresh as they should, and were topped with Lemon, Garlic Butter and melted Parmesan Cheese. Allen and me ordered the Tilapia sandwich
with Tater Tots
and I got French Fries
. I ordered a "virgin" Pina Colada
and they brought it to me in a kid size cup. I thought that was funny. I was expecting a glass with a little umbrella in it. It was a refreshing drink and complimented my Tilapia sandwich, which was huge and very filling. The batter was nicely seasoned and had a good crunch. Allen also enjoyed his Tilapia sandwich and Tater Tots. I ate one of his Tater Tots and it was yummy! We planned on ordering Key Lime Pie
for dessert, but we were too full to share one.

We had a great time and enjoyed our lunch fare at the Landshark Bar & Grill. We weren't rushed out and the view of the beach was the star of the show. My only request for next time - I want my Pina Colada in a glass.
