More about Tan-Tar-A

It’s 5 O’clock somewhere! Tan-Tar-A resort is now a Margaritaville. The resort was purchased by Jimmy Buffet in 2017 and is undergoing a complete transformation. During the construction, there are still plenty of options nearby!


Tan-Tar-A Resort offers food and beverage options to suit every palate, from hearty Ozark favorites and fine seafood to fast-food, all conveniently located in the resort complex.

The resort offers an array of on-site dining.

Some of our favorites nearby:

• Shorty Pants: A little Cajun kick and the catfish is wow!

• Red-Headed Yacht Club: Bring your suit to this joint. Kids can swim while you relax and enjoy your meal.

• Pappos Pizzaria: Great selection of beer and pizza

• Woobly Boots: Can’t go wrong with a burger here
