Escape to Margaritaville with Chef Daniel Murray


Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is located in Universal City Walk in Orlando, Florida. If you are looking for great margaritas, island-inspired dishes, and live entertainment, you are in the right place. From a live band on stage to an acoustic guitar on the terrace to a stilt walker making balloon hats for the children, young and old alike will enjoy the relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.


Featuring Jimmy Buffett tunes, an airplane replica, and an erupting volcano, Margaritaville was voted 2014 Best Theme Park Restaurant by Orlando Weekly Best of Orlando.


Executive Chef Daniel Murray has been with Margaritaville since 2005, where he enjoys working with his team. We had a chance to sit down with Chef Daniel and learn more about his background and experiences.

The Landshark Lager Fish & Chips are hand dipped in Landshark batter, fried and served with jalapeño tartar sauce, French fries and cilantro lime coleslaw. The crispy batter and fresh fish makes this dish one of my personal favorites.


You should also try the show stopper Volcano Nachos with house-made tortilla chips topped with chili, cheese, fresh guacamole, sour cream, jalapeños, tomatoes and scallions. This mound of Nachos is a great appetizer to share.


Of course, margaritas are featured on the bar menu, voted Best Bar Menu by Orlando Sentinel Foodie Awards 2013.


Don’t forget the  award winning Burgers in Paradise, voted 2014 Best Burger by Orlando Magazine.
