“At Margaritaville Resort Orlando, our culinary program has and will always be about creativity, quality service, and the guest experience. As we welcome Chef Joseph McFadden to lead culinary operations at the resort, we have modernized our signature restaurant,” said Resort President, Jim Vespa.
“Euphoria Fish House showcases seafood cuisine inspired by the islands and celebrating coastal communities. The restaurant and lounge will also boast a unique menu of specialty cocktails, beer, and wine, in addition to live musical performances.”
Menu highlights include Shrimp & Grits that come bacon wrapped with smoked gouda grits, amarillo aioli, and leaks; a Lobster Roll with Tarragon butter, lemon, and mayo; Calamari; Florida Grouper with Crab Fried Rice, Soy-ginger Glaze, Citrus Zest; Cavatelli Al Forno with Lump Crabmeat, Seared Shrimp, Boursin Cream Sauce, Asiago Crust, and Truffle Oil.

Award-winning Chef McFadden brings over 25 years of experience to the resort restaurant, showcasing his love for fresh ingredients, creative recipes, and top-notch presentation. Originally from Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal, Ireland, he is passionate about seasonality, innovative techniques, and deepening the culinary connection with diners.
Margaritaville Resort Orlando is imagined as a relaxing oasis in Central Florida, with a vibe that differs from the “hustle and bustle of theme parks”. Lagoon-style pools, cabanas, and signature décor elements like a margarita glass chandelier made of over 300 glasses and a 13-foot flip-flop sculpture serve as the perfect backdrops for vacation photos. Cottage homes and suites are available. Additional amenities include multiple restaurants, a full-service salon and spa, kid’s club, fitness center, and water park.
