The Original Margaritaville, where food and fun commingle

Categories: Food & Dining

Whether looking for a family-friendly restaurant, a place for date night, or a stop on a motorcycle ride, The Original Margaritaville fits the bill.

One of the most storied restaurants in the Lake Erie Island “vacationland” area, we have a spacious dining room, along with extra seating in warmer months on the wrap-around porch and 10,000-square-foot deck.

Outdoor dining at its best, you can sit outside on the porch by the waterfall, where in the summer the light mist will cool you off while enjoying waterfront dining, or grab a drink on the deck where the aroma of smoked meats wafts in the air, along with the sound of live music on summer weekends.

Our unique venue makes us one the best places to eat in Sandusky, Ohio, and offers many food options for dining near Cedar Point.

The menu is peppered with such favorites as smoked brisket, jambalaya and BBQ favorites, as well as more than a dozen sandwiches.

A locally owned restaurant, The Original Margaritaville opened in 1981 long before singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett opened his chain of restaurants and trademarked the name—making this the original one without any association with the Buffett brand. The Original Margaritaville is your go-to place for a fun, relaxed dining experience, and, of course, some margaritas or other favorite cocktails.

So whether you come by car, motorcycle, jet ski or kayak, we look forward to welcoming you!
