No that is a completely different place.  This takes its name from Jimmy Buffet, who is also an owner I believe.   The one in Sandusky is really big with bikers, even so far as specific parking for bikes.  It is a really fun spot, especially if they have a band.

My understanding is that one actually predates the Jimmy Buffet brand, and was once sued by "Jimmy Buffet" (the corporate entity) but won and was able to keep the name; they refer to themselves as "The Original Margaritaville" and Jimmy's are all "Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville". 

Some googling didn't lead me anywhere to confirm or deny that however, so it could just be an old rumor.

Only in Cleveland does it take forever to get something started.


*Looks out the window of the train on my way home to Brooklyn at the still unfinished World Trade Center that still has an entire tower to build, a performing arts center to build, and a tower to complete despite being several times over budget and a decade behind schedule*

They got new ownership in the past 2 years and really turned it around, it went from being a spot with a great patio and a decent margarita and poor food to a place having great food (inside and out having very different menus), really good margaritas and still that awesome patio.  Definitely worth stopping by if you get a chance.

I had a work event hosted at PB recently and we were all really impressed with the food and their service. I was there again this weekend. It's really a fun place. I think people are really starting to discover it now as it was full!  I've only had positive experiences

I never heard that rumor...Did someone post it on here?  If so, you could file that under fake news.

Has the Flats deflated? Not quite
Despite some turnover, developers and restaurateurs are optimistic about the resurgent Flats

^What's even more disturbing is that, not only does the article not provide insight into Phase 3, it doesn't mention it at all, nor does the accompanying map even note Phase 3 in FEB's future plans.

But it shows a retail footprint that is soon going to be almost full.  That is more important than whether or not the article or map mention phase III.  If the space rents, then we can expect phase III, if not, we can expect a parking lot for some time to come.

More exciting to me is the redevelopment of the historic old buildings (including the Watermark restaurant location) south of the Main Ave. Bridge.  Coupling this new activity with what's going on in the newer FEB footprint to the north will make FEB a total happening.

^Agreed. I only wish there was talk of  a new streetscape for that area. Remove the utility poles and widen the sidewalks. With that you could then extend the FEB boardwalk not along the river but over to Old River rd. which would connect to Settlers landing and eventually to Canal Basin Park.

Bingo. I actually had this same idea last year, and even posted a rank amateur photoshop of what it would look like. It's really a good idea that would help out existing businesses and facilitate more development. The boardwalk extension would help compel people to venture. Canal Basin would link it to the Towpath, it's got to happen. The current incarnation of the boardwalk looks nice, but since it doesn't go anywhere it doesn't function properly as a connector.

If anything the article points out that businesses like Big Bang, with multiple locations (in relative boomtowns like Nashville and Columbus) are doing more business in Cleveland.

Part of this sometimes comes from developer's relationships.  Not saying that is the case here but often times a developer will have a tenant sign agreements at several properties even though some may be in Cleveland or some other non boom town
