When I moved to Jupiter, I remember complaining to my boyfriend-now-husband that there were no commercial restaurants. Growing up in Ft. Lauderdale and then attending college in Central Florida, I was used to strip malls and all the mainstream chain restaurants. He chuckled, knowing that his hometown is also home to some of the best local restaurants in Florida. 20+ years later, Jupiter has many more options! After many years of enjoying the Jupiter life, today my favorite restaurants are the ones that are unique restaurants to our area. Let me share some of my local favorites. Here are the best restaurants in Jupiter.
Located on the Jupiter Inlet and directly across from the Jupiter Lighthouse, this upscale American grille delivers great food every time! The portions are on the smaller side, which I appreciate, and the menu changes often. I find the menu interesting and fresh, and I have never had something I wouldn't order again. Walk down the street to The Square Grouper Tiki Bar afterward for the best skinny Margarita in town! Beacon is only open for dinner (and now weekend Brunch).
Accessible by boat or car, 1000 North is another upscale Jupiter restaurant serving traditional American cuisine with an extensive wine list. The restaurant is well known for some of its celebrity partners including Michael Jordan and Ernie Els, and its members-only upstairs cigar bar. 1000 North is open for dinner daily, serves lunch Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and they have an amazing Sunday brunch (hello, Chicken and Waffles!). The truffle fries are to die for!
If you are looking for a casual waterfront restaurant, Dive Bar delivers fresh fish and oysters and fantastic sushi rolls. While it sits on the Jupiter Yacht Club Marina, don't expect the fantastic views that Beacon and 1000 North provide. Nonetheless, you can show up in your board shorts and flip-flops and enjoy lunch or dinner seven days a week. They also have a great happy hour from 3-6 pm on weekdays.
Food Shack and Leftovers Cafe, their sister restaurant located in Abacoa, has an exceptional menu, and the food and service are always on point. The super casual and friendly restaurants are uniquely Jupiter. Some of my menu favorites are their sweet potato-crusted fish (I prefer any of the fresh snapper options), BBQ chicken sandwich (get it in a wrap with a side of coconut rice), and their Indoroni, the best adult mac and cheese you will ever eat! Greek Salad is also a great lighter option. Choose from a list of craft cocktails or their delicious tropical iced tea!
This is a huge tiki bar that sits directly on the Intracoastal in Tequesta. There is a constant breeze off the ocean so it is great for even the hottest summer days. The setting will make you feel like you are in The Florida Keys, with sand and hammocks scattered around. Sometimes, you will see manatees and marine life swimming close by, and there is a pool that is open to the public if you need to occupy your children. The menu is simple but good, and there is a full bar and kids' menu.
Who doesn't love tacos?!? And, happy hour daily from 11a - 6p? This is an open-air, casual taco bar featuring Mexican street-style food, great tequila, and cocktails with a laid-back beach bar vibe. Out back, you'll find ping pong and picnic tables, and a space that can be rented out for private parties.
