View our paradise: Best restaurants for outdoor dining in Jupiter 


Even if it’s brutally hot outside, a table with a good view will lift you from the swelter. 

Your view drops you in the middle of a certain paradise. That’s the essence of al fresco dining, the sense of place.

Here are some of the best restaurants with outdoor seating in Jupiter from which to view our paradise:

Jetty’s

A mainstay at the Jupiter inlet, the sprawling wooden deck at Jetty’s delivers a stunning view of the Jupiter Lighthouse and the boats that glide in its periphery.

Thanks to the waterway, there’s usually some kind of breeze to cool off al fresco diners in summer.

Jetty’s Waterfront Restaurant: 1075 N. Highway A1A, Jupiter; 561-743-8166


Guanabanas

Guanabanas has a tropical, gorgeously overgrown feeling that makes it unlike any other local al fresco restaurant or bar.

Palm trees sweep toward the waterway, a lagoon that sits off the south bank of the Loxahatchee River. Dining tables are tucked between the thickly set bursts of lush foliage, and offer a perch for watching kayakers and paddle-boarders glide by. For the less aquatic types, there’s plenty on the menu to keep you busy. Settle back and dig into the blackened fresh-catch sandwich between sips of a vodka-spiked A1A Lemonade, and go “ahhh.”

Guanabanas: 960 N. Hwy A1A, Jupiter; 561-747-8878 


Tommy Bahama

There’s a resort-y feel to this upscale chain restaurant. And, thanks to its location, that vibe comes with a view. Tommy Bahama is perched by the waterway at Jupiter’s Harbourside Place. The outdoor terrace is ideal for sipping a cocktail and watching the plaza’s action unfold.

Tommy Bahama: 126 Soundings Ave., Jupiter; 561-406-6631


The Square Grouper

This is a toes-in-the-sand kind of place that rewards its revelers with a stunning view of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. Sure, you’ll find some decent grub here. But the reasons to visit are all vibe and view, and the sips and sounds that link the two.

The Square Grouper: 1111 Love St., Jupiter; 561-575-0252


U-Tiki

With the tropical vibe, the outstanding view (sits across from the Jupiter Lighthouse) and the great food, U-Tiki Beach provides a wondering dining experience.

U-Tiki Beach: 1095 North A1A, Jupiter; 561-406-2210
