U-Tiki Beach, a tropical getaway in Jupiter


MENU

Lots of fresh seafood, from appetizers and salads to sandwiches and specialty plates. But there are lots of other choices too, including burgers and flatbreads.

ATMOSPHERE

Waterfront dining across from the Jupiter Lighthouse — need I say more?

OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE

I took my out-of-town guests here, because they were on vacation and craving lunch somewhere with boats, palm trees and a pelican or two. While we perused the menu, we nibbled on a blackened chicken with peanut slather flatbread ($16) perfect for sharing. I could not resist the blackened mahi sandwich ($17), served with cole slaw and a mound of fries. The seasoning was a perfect complement to the large piece of fresh, flaky fish. My brother-in-law ordered the seared ahi tuna wrap ($17), which was stuffed with cucumber, mango, papaya, avocado, cheese and fresh greens — along with a good amount of tuna. He enjoyed every bite of the wrap, which was served with fries. My sister opted for the crispy chicken ranch salad ($17), which included bacon, avocado, tomatoes, pecans, cheese, greens and a generous portion of chicken. A sweet ending to our delicious meal was a piece of peanut butter pie ($6) split three ways.

REASON TO GO

The tropical vibe, the outstanding view and the great food work together to provide a wonderful dining experience.

SERVICE

Very good. Our server offered suggestions, as this was our first visit, and answered all our questions.

NOISE LEVEL

There’s definitely a buzz, with people enjoying themselves in this vibrant spot.

KID FRIENDLY

The kids will love it here, watching the boats and sea birds. There’s a menu for them too, with cheeseburgers, chicken or fish fingers, shrimp and hot dogs.
