People flock to Jupiter, Florida to experience the wealth of natural wonders that this city has to offer, as well as other amenities like shopping malls, museums, and so much more. There’s no end to the fun you can have when you visit this Atlantic Coast city.
You’ve got things like Jupiter Beach, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, and the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary to enjoy the great outdoors, or you can go play 18 holes at the sprawling, luxury golf courses scattered around town. The real fun, for me, however, is when it’s time to go out to eat.
When you’re going out to eat in Jupiter, you’re faced with all sorts of amazing options, so it can be quite hard to pick sometimes.
That’s why I went around town and gathered up all of the greatest restaurants in the city and ranked them all on a list right here.
- Jumby Bay Island Grill
- Little Moir’s Food Shack
- Dive Bar
- Dune Dog Cafe
- The Woods Jupiter
- Berry Fresh Cafe
- Square Grouper Tiki Bar Jupiter Inlet
- Jetty’s Waterfront Restaurant
- Calaveras Cantina
Now, you’ll know exactly where to go in order to find the perfect breakfast, lunch, and dinner when you’re in Jupiter.
1203 Town Center Dr #101, Jupiter, FL 33458
This last restaurant is conveniently located in the Downtown Abacoa shopping mall near Florida Atlantic University’s Jupiter campus, right next to Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, home of the Florida Marlins baseball team.
There is so much to do in the area that you can never get bored here.
Jumby Bay Island Grill is another hotspot for Caribbean cuisine that I frequent whenever I’m in town, and you should too. You can even bring your four-legged friend with you. That’s right, they have a dog-friendly patio!
I highly recommend the jerk chicken sandwich, but everything on the menu here is divine.
Little Moir’s Food Shack
103 US-1 D3, Jupiter, FL 33477
The first place I want to talk about is Little Moir’s Food Shack. This place is fantastic and I really think everyone is going to love this restaurant. Despite having “little” in the name, this place is anything but.
You can find this wonderful seafood restaurant inside the Jupiter Square Shopping Mall, right next to the Publix Super Market off of US Highway 1.
When you get here, you never know what you’ll find. The menu is always changing and Little Moir’s is always adding new and amazing creations. That’s part of the reason I love coming here so much.
318 South US-1, Jupiter, FL 33477
Dive Bar Restaurant is the next place I want to mention and this one is a real treat. This bar and grill has both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a fantastic outdoor bar. It’s the perfect place to get boozy by the water here in Jupiter.
Whenever I come to Dive Bar Restaurant, I go for the crispy calamari or the tuna poke to start things off with. For an entree, I usually like their po boy sandwich.
Check out Dive Bar Restaurant off of South US Highway 1, overlooking the Jupiter Yacht Club Marina.
960 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477
Next up is an immensely popular restaurant amongst visitors and locals alike. Guanabanas Restaurant is incredible in every way. It really doesn’t get much more Floridian than this restaurant.
Guanabanas is the ultimate hangout destination in Jupiter, if you ask me. This place will make you feel like you’re away on vacation, even if you’re not. All you need is a tropical cocktail to complete the experience.
When you come here, you should definitely get some fresh Florida seafood like their tequila lime fresh catch. At a restaurant this close to the ocean, you know the seafood is going to be amazing.
775 FL A1AAlt, Jupiter, FL 33477
Dune Dog Cafe is another fixture of Jupiter and an absolute must-visit restaurant for anyone that happens to be spending time in town.
I try to come to Dune Dog Cafe whenever I can, personally. They’re open for lunch, but it’s honestly one of my favorite nighttime hangouts too. They have some of the freshest sushi in town.
What I love the most about Dune Dog Cafe, besides the delicious food, are their signature cocktails.
My favorite is the strawberry basil margarita. I’ve never seen a drink like this anywhere else and boy is it amazing.
1095 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477
This next restaurant is called U-Tiki Beach. This is another harborside restaurant that affords gorgeous waterfront views of the Loxahatchee River right from your dinner table.
I can’t recommend this place enough, honestly. I really enjoy U-Tiki Beach mainly because of the casual Island vibe, but also because they serve up some delectable Caribbean dishes.
I always recommend starting your meal at U-Tiki Beach with the cracked conch and a cocktail. After that, I definitely suggest trying the coconut curry seafood or the cioppino. Either way, you’re in for a fantastic dining experience when you come here.
129 Soundings Ave, Jupiter, FL 33477
Next up, you’re going to want to look for The Woods inside of the Harbourside Place shopping mall near the Wyndham Grand hotel.
This is a phenomenal place to eat in Jupiter when you’re inthe middle of a shopping spree and need to take a lunch break.
The Woods is a top-tier restaurant that is open for both lunch and dinner, actually. I prefer the dinner menu myself, but there’s nothing wrong with coming here in the middle of the day for some amazing food.
I highly recommend coming for happy hour as well. It’s every day from 3 PM to 6 PM.
3755 Military Trail, Jupiter, FL 33458
Right inside the Admiral’s Crossing shopping center where you’ll also find Sprouts Farmers Market is Berry Fresh Cafe.
If you’ve had the pleasure of eating here before, you’ll immediately understand why I have to include this place.
No one does breakfast like Berry Fresh Cafe, in my opinion. Coming here to eat is the ultimate way to start your day, hands down.
I always go for a cup of hot coffee and their Nashville hot chicken hash or the big country hash. Anything you order here is going to be delicious, though, and the menu is massive.
1111 Love St, Jupiter, FL 33477
Square Grouper Tiki Bar is a wonderful waterfront restaurant with a comical name. I can’t get enough of the amazing food here at Square Grouper, but what really makes eating here special are the amazing waterfront views of Jupiter Inlet.
When you come to Square Grouper, seafood is the way to go, of course. They have really delicious burgers and hot dogs, too, but I always go for fish or shellfish when I eat by the water.
My favorite thing to order from Square Grouper is their mahi-mahi sandwich. It’s so fresh you can taste the ocean in every bite.
1075 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477
Not far from Square Grouper is another amazing waterfront spot called Jetty’s. You’re going to love this place just as much as I do, I think, especially if you enjoy fresh seafood in a high-end atmosphere.
This is the perfect restaurant for a family dinner, but I also could recommend it for anyone in search of a romantic dinner destination for two.
What I recommend from Jetty’s Waterfront Restaurant is the local yellowtail snapper, but the menu is pretty huge, so definitely grab a drink to sip on while you peruse the whole thing.
125 Dockside Cir, Jupiter, FL 33477
This next restaurant is called Calaveras Cantina and it’s another great place to eat inside the Harborside Place shopping mall.
There’s no other place in town that I recommend as highly when it comes to delicious Mexican food in Jupiter.
When you come to Calaveras Cantina, you should definitely kick things off with a margarita or a mojito to go with your tableside guacamole which you should also order.
Don’t hesitate to come to Calaveras, especially if you’re looking for a late-night watering hole. They stay open until 1 AM, so you can party all night long here.
