Jimmy Buffett's at the Beachcomber to Remain Open Under New Local Management

Outrigger Enterprises Group today announced that it has leased the Jimmy Buffett's at the Beachcomber restaurant space to JB Waikiki, LLC, a new entity created by Handcrafted Restaurants, LLC, operators of Hawaii's Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman. The restaurant, located on the upper lobby level of the Holiday Inn® Waikiki Beachcomber Resort, will continue to operate under the Jimmy Buffett's brand following a one-week closure from September 1-7 while the space and menu undergo a refresh.

"We are honored to carry on Jimmy Buffett's great operation in Waikiki and look forward to expanding on its popularity with a few changes to the facilities and new additions to the menu that highlight Hawaii local flavors," said Bill Terry, partner at Handcrafted Restaurants LLC. "The interview process is currently underway with restaurant management and staff and we expect a quick and easy transition."

Barbara Campbell, vice president of retail leasing at Outrigger Enterprises Group, commented: "We are pleased to have reached this agreement that allows Jimmy Buffett's at the Beachcomber restaurant to remain open under the direction of Hawaii's JB Waikiki, LLC, and continue to serve up the great food and drinks people have come to expect from the restaurant. I've had a chance to sample a few of the new island influenced menu items and know they will be a hit with patrons," Campbell added.

Jimmy Buffett's at the Beachcomber is a much-loved Waikiki restaurant and bar where guests can sit back,relax, and dine from a menu of regional cuisine that includes fresh seafood, steaks, burgers, island flavors and more, while sipping margaritas, mai tais or signature boat drinks on the restaurant's open-air lanai or poolside bar.

Handcrafted Restaurants LLC is a partnership between Hawaii Regional Cuisine founding chef Peter Merriman and restaurateur Bill Terry. The restaurant group also operates Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman's two locations in Ko Olina and Wailea, Maui.
