Make Reservations at the 6 Best Restaurants Around Abacoa

Stacie Ahee

Known as the annual spring training destination for the St. Louis Cardinals and its many shops and the beautiful Abacoa Golf Club, Abacoa, Florida, is a popular residential area in Jupiter. Downtown Abacoa offers all the charm of a historic main street while being newly renovated and modernized. Whether you are looking at Abacoa houses for sale in the downtown district or elsewhere in the area, you’ll want to try these fantastic restaurants nearby for every meal of the day!

Brick & Barrel Gastro Pub

Featuring locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, Brick & Barrel has quickly become known as the place to get made-from-scratch upscale pub food. Seasonal cocktails, a complete whiskey-centric bar, and a rustic, laid-back atmosphere make this a new favorite for those who own Abacoa real estate and visitors to the area. If you’re an early bird, stop in for brunch to experience the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry compote, 13-minute Scotch egg, or pub steak and eggs. If dinner’s on the agenda, you can look forward to poutine with bone marrow gravy, short rib sandwiches, fish & chips, and shepherd’s pie.

Enhance your meal with a glass of wine, a curated Old-Fashioned, or a craft beer. Happy hour is offered Tuesday-Friday from 4-6:30 p.m. and features half-off drinks under $14. If you stop in during happy hour on Thursday, you can enjoy 50% off all bottles of wine, and if Wednesday is your day, you can indulge in a $6 house Old-Fashioned.

Jumby Bay Island Grill

It’s always island time when you plan to dine at Jumby Bay Island Grill in downtown Abacoa. Rated “excellent” by Zagat, Jumby Bay has a tropical, casual atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating and specials running every night. Some local favorites include Thursday Ladies' Night (ladies drink free all night) and Flip Night — flip a coin with the bartender, and your drink is free if you win! Jumby Bay also has live music and DJs on the weekend.

As far as food, you can expect crispy calamari, jerk chicken sandwiches, seared scallop salad, calypso pasta, and island-style filet mignon. Stop in for happy hour every day from 4-7:00 p.m. for double cocktails in a tall glass for the price of a single and $8 select appetizers.

Dive Bar Restaurant

Don’t let the name fool you—the Dive Bar Restaurant in Jupiter is the perfect place to go for a fantastic meal in a unique setting. Stop in for a break from looking at Abacoa houses for sale, and you’ll instantly be surrounded by a huge saltwater aquarium that shows underwater videos. This is the ideal backdrop for dining on prime fish and fresh oysters and filling sandwiches, sushi, and fresh salads. The Chef’s Creative Boats offer a selection of sushi and sashimi selected by Sushi Executive Chef Sammy. Wash it all down with a glass of red or white, or try a Key Lime martini or Mermaid Water (spiced rum, coconut rum, blue curacao, pineapple, and orange).


Experience waterfront dining at its best when you make reservations at Beacon. Located on the Jupiter Inlet, Beacon offers views of the water and its exhibition kitchen, where you can watch the talented staff create imaginative entrees on a wood fire. One of their signature dishes is The Hunter & The Angler, a choice of meat or seafood cooked over the wood fire paired with a sauce selected by the chef and a vegetable chosen by you. Beacon is also known for its innovative craft cocktails and curated wine list. If you’re in the mood for a drink, try a Bullfighter (tequila, mezcal, vanilla chai, lemongrass, and tropical ice), Hemingway Daiquiri, or Concrete Jungle (bourbon, rye, carpano antica, and pimento bitters).

1000 North

Want to celebrate making a successful offer on one of the Abacoa homes for sale? There’s no better place for a celebration dinner than 1000 North. A premier waterfront eatery, 1000 North, offers multiple dining vibes on the outdoor Terrace, the elegant dining room, the second floor Club Lounge available by membership only, or the stylishly-designed bar area, the Tavern.

1000 North is open for lunch and dinner and Sunday brunch from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The lunch menu features house specialties like ahi tuna tacos and grouper cheeks & chips, while the dinner menu is full of prime cut steaks, fresh fish, and market sides like creamed corn Brulee and lobster tail mac & cheese a la carbonara. Are you coming in early for brunch? You’ll enjoy crab chilaquiles, steak & eggs tartine, or Nashville hot chicken and waffles.

Calaveras Cantina

Who can say no to “sexy Mexican food” and a tequila bar? If this sounds appealing, make reservations at Calaveras Cantina and start your meal right with a hand-crafted margarita or Kiss of Death (spicy ghost tequila, activated charcoal, lime, and agave with a pop-rock and hibiscus rim) and some guacamole made table-side. Move on to some duck confit empanadas, smoked brisket tacos, or Samurai ceviche. Calaveras also has delicious grouper diablo, carne asada quesadillas, and red velvet tres leches for dessert.

Whether you’re looking at Abacoa homes for sale or settling in the Jupiter area, dining at one of these restaurants will make your Florida lifestyle even more enjoyable. Want to start looking for houses but don’t yet have a realtor? Reach out to local expert Stacie Ahee for guidance.
