Jupiter Places to Eat

Jupiter has some great waterfront places to eat and take in the scenery. The best is Bubba Gump Shrimp Company where you will get consistently delicious and high-quality food (try the pear and raspberry salad); friendly, competent service; and best of all, an incredible view of the waterways all around and Jupiter lighthouse. The outdoor seating area is huge and there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the cool breeze coming off the water. Even in June, the air is perfect here at dinnertime. Water laps up right by the railing as you eat- it's amazing how incredibly clear the water is even though there are boats around. What a blissful spot! There is a little pier jutting out into the waterway where you can take a romantic stroll.
A restaurant with no view (it looks like a real dive from the outside) is Little Moir's Food Shack in a plain strip mall on the southeast corner of Indiantown and Highway 1. Once inside, there is plenty of Jamaican-style atmosphere: posters of Bob Marley, plus fishing and surfing paraphernalia. This restaurant is always packed because the food is delicious and the fish is incredibly fresh, more fresh than you've ever tasted before! Try the Sweet Potato-Crusted Dolphin (Mahi mahi). If the restaurant is full, you can sit in the bar next door and order the same meal from the same kitchen!
Guanabanas is an enchanting place with grass shacks, lush tropical foliage, and lanterns, looking out on a narrow waterway and a mangrove island. Too bad the wait staff can be just awful, as if they don't care in the slightest that you have a good time. The food also can be terrible. But it's worth it to go just for the pretty surroundings and in the hope that you might luck out this time. Coming for drinks might be the best way to enjoy the atmosphere.
Square Grouper shares a similar spot on the inlet to Bubba Gump, with views of the lighthouse. From the outside you are in an industrial area, but once you reach the bar you are in a tropical vibe. There are plenty of rugged dudes enjoying a drink after a day fishing or boating. Only drinks are sold, and kids aren't allowed. This bar is incredibly romantic on quiet nights, when you can sit with your lover on two chairs between palm trees and enjoy the view of the lighthouse lit up across the water. Then you really know why you live in Florida!
Tiki 52 is a popular restaurant with bikers on Sunday afternoons, and enjoys a fabulous spot on the intracoastal waterway.
The last three restaurants/bars have live music many nights. Nothing is better than the warm night air in Florida combined with some good music.
