Phlocking of the Phaithful Food and Fun History

The official host of this year’s Jimmy Buffet tribute weekend is Reel Bar. Their lively atmosphere on the edge of downtown will serve as the central location for several of the weekend events. There is so much to love about this island bar, you might not even know it is owned by island Rock God, Ray Fogg. The Reel Bar offers a delicious selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner offerings. Take a peek at the menu for a full listing of all the food options that are offered. Once you’re here, you’ll find that many other island pubs and bars join in the Parrot Head festivities.
