This Is Margaritaville: A Visit To Atlantic City

After my recent visit to Atlantic City, N.J., I believe the concept of "Margaritaville is simply a state of mind." A license to chill, some might say. Drinks at the 5 o'clock bar are frosty and tropical, but if you want a Bloody Mary, you just might confuse the bartenders (it is named after a different cocktail, after all).

Whether you choose to drink, eat, or both, though, the vibe of this place is worth the trip. From strolling on the boardwalk to catching a summer concert on the shore, there are plenty of ways to enjoy your stay!

If you're looking for a bite to eat, the lunch menu at Margaritaville had the usual nachos and coconut shrimp and was similar to a large restaurant chain's offerings. The service was outstanding, as we had a large crowd seated for dinner — a potentially stressful situation for any server!

Take my tip, though: if you want to have your breakfast there, be sure to get there before 10 a.m. The restaurant closes for one hour from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. to prepare for the lunch crowd.

Although they're highlights, there's plenty to do in addition to drinking and eating at Margaritaville. Check out the slideshow to learn more!
