Once you’ve conquered the golf world, the next logical step is airport restaurants, right? Such is the case for golfing great Jack Nicklaus, who opened up his new comfort food eatery Golden Bear Grill inside the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport yesterday.

The FLL location is the first location for the restaurant, which also has plans to open in the Charleston International Airport, and features dishes based off his wife Barbra’s recipes from her cookbook like meatloaf, flat bread pizzas and chocolate-covered peanut butter balls dubbed “Buckeyes” that are an ode to his alma mater, Ohio State.

While it may be Nicklaus’ first foray into restaurants, it certainly isn’t his first time putting his name on food products with items like Jack Nicklaus Wine, Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear Lemonade by AriZona, and even Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream already being sold.

The 2,800-square-foot restaurant is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. [ESPN]
