Considered one of the most elite small towns in the country, Jupiter, Florida, is the ideal place for your next vacation. Stunning views, rich history, and a small-town vibe make Jupiter accessible for everyone.
Kids love the Loggerhead turtle reserve and lighthouse, while adults might prefer world-class golf courses and sightseeing.
That said, Jupiter is much more low-key than some of the other famed Gold Coast locales (like Miami)—no need to worry about rowdiness if you bring your family.
Located on the Southeastern coast of Florida and surrounded by warm blue water, Jupiter also has some incredible waterfront dining.
Whether you love fresh seafood selections or classic steakhouses, Jupiter has something for every palate. And, if you get lucky, you may see a few celebrities during your meal!

After a day at the beach, there is nothing better than enjoying top-notch food on the waterfront. Check out my picks of the best waterfront restaurants in Jupiter below.
1000 US-1, Jupiter, FL 33477
Boasting an extensive list of celebrity partners like Michael Jordan, 1000 North is one of the finest waterfront dining spots in Jupiter.
With an upscale, white-tablecloth vibe and a clear view of the iconic Jupiter Lighthouse, 1000 North keeps diners swooning year after year. You can find 1000 North behind the Jupiter Harbor Condominiums on Highway 1.
I love eating at 1000 North for special occasions—seriously, nothing makes you feel more like a celebrity than a meal here.
My favorite menu picks are the Charleston She-Crab Soup (I am a southerner by birth and can firm its authenticity) and the roasted duck breast.
1095 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477
If casual dining is more your style, look no further than U-Tiki Beach. Blending the classic tiki-bar vibe with Caribbean food makes this restaurant a Jupiter staple.
Situated on the opposite side of highway 1 from 1000 North, U-Tiki offers inside dining and outdoor dining on their expansive patio. It is the best place on the shore to see the sunset.
I admittedly do not enjoy spicy food, so I was apprehensive about trying U-Tiki. Thankfully, they have a delicious (and not spicy) lobster roll comparable to those in the Northeast. Their cocktails are also great for waterfront sipping.
1075 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477
Romantic, ambient, and waterfront, Jetty’s is a must-try in Jupiter. They have served locally-inspired fare for twenty-five years and offer upscale dining with a casual island feel.
Jetty’s is family-friendly and provides diners with spectacular waterfront views. You can check out Jetty’s at the end of Yarborough and Cramer Streets, just behind U-Tiki.
Famous for their ribs, shellfish, and Angus steaks, you will never leave Jetty’s hungry. I go here to indulge—so the Calamari and the crab cakes are my go-to picks. Also of note are the coconut shrimp and the Chilean sea bass.
5 N Hwy A1A 1st Floor, Jupiter, FL 33477
With several menus available and elegant waterfront views, Sinclairs are the place to be. Warm environs and refined decor give an intimate, romantic vibe.
Located inside the 4-star Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa, the experience at Sinclair’s is all-around opulence. For the perfect date night, I recommend grabbing dinner and cocktails before a stroll on the waterfront.
I love Sinclair’s for its convenience and intimate feel. My absolute favorite thing on the menu is the lemon basil shrimp.
The creamy blueberry goat cheese and crostini are to die for, and the Yellowtail Snapper entree is superb. You cannot go wrong at Sinclair’s.
318 South US-1, Jupiter, FL 33477
Do not let the name fool you—this restaurant has far more than your average bar. Enjoy open-air drinking and dining, waterfront views, and the freshest seafood around at the Dive Bar Restaurant.
The vibe at Dive Bar is very laid-back and casual, with a large aquarium serving as a centerpiece for the bar. You can find Dive Bar Restaurant next to the Jupiter Yacht Club Marina.
Dive Bar specializes in oysters, which are not my personal favorite. However, they have delectable seafood options like coconut-Macadamia shrimp and walnut-encrusted salmon. I always order the seafood and bacon mac and cheese—it is life-changing.
Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Bar & Store
126 Soundings Ave, Jupiter, FL 33477
You cannot get much more classically tropical than Tommy Bahama. Put on your palm-leaf patterned dress shirt and enjoy classy waterfront fare in a casual setting.
Before you feast, walk around the Harbourside Mall—a high-end shopping mall with some of the best stores in Jupiter.
Tommy Bahama is next to the dockside market, the third exit on the traffic circle coming from North Coastal Way.
My dad loves Tommy Bahama, so we always make a stop here when we are in Jupiter. The shareable offerings are some of the best tapas I have ever had. You have to try the Ahi tuna tacos and the Macadamia-nut goat cheese.
1111 Love St, Jupiter, FL 33477
Live music, great drinks, and waterfront views await at Square Grouper. Ensure you leave the kids at home if you come here, as no one under the age of 21 can enter the bar.
Square Grouper brings the ultimate casual beachy-bar atmosphere in droves. With nightly live music, an open-air bar, and the perfect view of the marina, Square Grouper makes for the perfect night out.
I love a good cocktail—the fruitier, the better! Square Grouper has some of my all-time favorites. The John Daly is iconic and delicious, especially with a side of their legendary french fries.
Whether you want elegant fine dining or breezy and beachy vibes, Jupiter has it all. Their waterfront restaurants are some of the finest in the country. The fresh seafood and tropical drinks never get old.
A trip to Jupiter feels like an escape to paradise—blue waters, spectacular sunsets, and fruity drinks abound. You will never want to leave.
