Best of Broward / Palm Beach

The Ten Best Hollywood Beach Restaurants and Bars to Visit Before Margaritaville Arrives

Big changes are coming to Hollywood Beach. In a little more than two years Margaritaville, a 350-room, 17 story, $149 million resort wonderland will rise smack in the middle of the Broadwalk.

Some restaurant owners are saying the nearly 800 parking spots removed from the beach will be their end. They say they can't survive the 27 months until Margaritaville is finished and gives 600 parking spots back to the public. Others are excited, and see plenty of dollar signs attached to all the beachfront construction.
