The new restaurant space will include an outdoor patio and a view of the Inner Harbor walkway.
LandShark Bar & Grill is part of Margaritaville Holdings LLC. The company, named after Buffett’s hit song “Margaritaville,” owns the Jimmy Buffett-themed resort based in Orlando, Fla., and has LandShark Bar & Grill locations in Myrtle Beach, Atlantic City and Daytona Beach. A spokesperson for Margaritaville Holdings LLC did not immediately return a request for comment.
Harborplace houses many of the retail attractions located along the Inner Harbor including Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Build-A-Bear, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and Crystal Cove.
Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young has other ideas for the struggling seaside retail center. Last week, the mayor said in his weekly City Hall news briefing that he’d like to see the tourist attraction “torn down and redone.”
Young added, “I would love to see it replaced.”
IVL Group LLC, the Montclair, N.J.-based trustee of Harborplace could not immediately be reached for comment.
