Miami Dolphins coaching legend Don Shula is taking another culinary stab at the Jacksonville market with the opening of Shula’s Bar & Grill.
Shula’s Bar & Grill, which is opening in Concourse A at Jacksonville International Airport, is the fourth of that concept creating just for airports. The other three are at the international airports in Fort Myers, Miami and Tampa.
The restaurant is having a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday.
Shula’s Bar & Grill is part of the Shula Family of Restaurants that includes 32 locations in and outside of Florida under the names Shula’s Steak House, Shula’s on the Beach, Shula’s 347 Grill, Shula’s 2, Shula’s Bar & Grill and Shula Burger.
A Shula’s 347 opened in 2008 in Jacksonville inside the Deerwood Park Sheraton Hotel, but closed more than two years later.
The space was eventually filled by the Bold City Grill.
Shula’s Bar & Grill serves burgers, salads, steaks, appetizers, desserts and cocktails.
