Crafting The Perfect Mulligan’s Meal, Part One

First thing’s first: We are thrilled to announce a new Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill location coming in early 2019 to Indian Harbour and Melbourne! Mulligan’s a top-rated, full-service seafood restaurant with locations in Jensen Beach, Vero Beach, Lake Worth, and beyond, is the choice of locals and tourists alike — and for good reason. With incredible waterfront views, a fun and family-friendly atmosphere, and incredible menu choices that feature tasty seafood (and “landfood”) items, Mulligan’s is the perfect place to enjoy the company of your friends while indulging in some deliciousness.

We are true native Floridians as well, which means anyone who walks through our doors can trust that we understand what great seafood and what a great restaurant experience should be like. We use the freshest of ingredients, are committed to exceptional customer service, and all the while we focus on the little details to make sure our patrons have a fantastic experience at Mulligan’s.

Crafting The Perfect Seafood Meal

Now, we might be severely biased when it comes to crafting the perfect seafood meal, but we are of the opinion that Mulligan’s is a great place to come get a great meal whether you are taking your loved one out for a date, having a birthday party with your friends and family, or simply want to catch a happy hour while taking in a glorious waterfront view. Below, we take the time to highlight some of our favorite menu items that happen to also be extremely popular amongst our regulars. If you are looking for some suggestions on what to get the next time you pop into our local seafood restaurant, by all means keep reading!

  • Firecracker Shrimp – Let’s start with a special we have on offer right now — who doesn’t love fresh-caught shrimp? If you are a fan of good things, these firecracker shrimp bring a perfect blend of heat and general scrumptiousness. Perfectly seasoned, not too spicy, and delicious fried breading. Nom nom.
  • In terms of breakfast, it’s tough to beat our breakfast platter, which includes two eggs cooked anyway you like, two sausage patties, two bacon strips, home fries, and toast. As you can tell, we are of the opinion that you shouldn’t have to choose between bacon and sausage, just like you shouldn’t have to choose only one of fries and toast — so we offer both!
  • Another popular breakfast item is our stuffed french toast. It features cinnamon french toast stuffed with a sweet orange cream filling served with fruit on the side. While we are talking about possibly the most delicious breakfast food ever created, we might as well tell you that we also offer Nutella banana french toast, almond cranberry french toast, and of course, traditional french toast which can be served with pineapple, strawberries, and blueberries.
  • If you are less of a french toast gal or guy and more a fan of waffles, we can certainly respect your decision, although we must admit we don’t completely understand it. Even still, you won’t be disappointed, as we offer Belgian waffles topped with powdered sugar, butter, and berries if you want them. On the more savory side, we offer a waffle sandwich melt that features scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and ham marvelously placed between two waffles. We also have chicken and waffles, which are placed on top of one large Belgian waffle. It’s all pulled together with sausage gravy, although we aren’t opposed to perking it up with some hot sauce, honey, or both!
  • Sticking with the breakfast cuisine, we have a few different sandwiches we feel compelled to highlight. Perhaps chief among them is our lox and bagel sandwich, which boasts delectable smoked salmon with capers and cream cheese. We also have a steak n’ egg bagel sammie, which includes Swiss cheese, onions, and is served on a perfectly toasted bagel. Finally, we’d be remiss if we failed to mention our red yee burger, which is thick, juicy, and comes with cheddar, bacon, and a sunny side egg on top (meaning you can pass it off as a breakfast dish if anyone gives you any trouble).
  • Moving on toward lunchtime, we’ve got a few appetizers that stand out — although it’s all good and worth trying at least once. A couple of fantastic appetizers at Mulligan’s are oh so cheesy fries, Key West conch fritters, and the calypso crab cake. Don’t forget about the seafood trio, however, which is a perfect choice for the whole family with its conch fritters, firecracker shrimp, and mahi fingers.
  • We’ve got some raw bar options for you as well, since we believe we couldn’t very well call ourselves an authentic Floridian seafood restaurant without offering steamed clams. We’ve also got a jumbo shrimp cocktail and smoked fish dip — a house recipe made with local smoked fish, tomatoes, jalapenos, and flatbread crackers!
  • On the lighter side, we’ve got some salads on offer, which include Mulligan’s cobb salad, the beach house garden or caesar, a lovely Asian dragon choice, and, our personal favorite, the chicken gorgonzola salad. Whichever you choose, we are almost sure you’re gonna like it!
  • Whether you are looking for seafood restaurants in Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, or Lake Worth, you need to come on into a Mulligan’s and try our fresh mahi sandwich. It’s served grilled, blackened, or Jerk style. No matter which way you choose, it’s fresh, it’s delicious, and it belongs in your belly.
  • Other great sandwich choices include our tuna melt, chicken in paradise (marinated chicken breast on a toasted ciabatta), or our Philly steak. The latter offers tender steak, onions, melted cheese, mushrooms, and onion rings.

Seafood

Alright, you may have noticed we haven’t really talked about the seafood dishes we have become well-known for. Well, we put an end to such preposterousness below.

  • Most rationale, eat-meating people enjoy lobster. If you count yourself among this demographic, you should come in to try our lobster melt, lobster roll, lobster taco, or our fantastically popular three-cheese lobster mac. The lobster mac and cheese features cavatappi pasta that has been folded into a three-cheese sauce with perfectly seasoned lobster meat. It’s heaven.
  • In terms of tacos, we’ve got you covered here at Mulligan’s. We do more than seafood-based tacos, but seeing as how we are highlighting our seafood dishes, we simply have to tell you about our baja fish tacos. First off, they are loaded to the brim with blackened mahi, mahi, and secondly they come with cheese, lettuce, pico, and are served with rice. Trust us, they are fantastic.
  • Everyone likes pizza, and because you are on this blog, we assume you like lobster. You can get both at the same time with our lobster pizza, which boasts tender lobster with a lobster sauce, mushrooms, spinach, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese for a balanced and challenging menu selection.
  • Let’s talk about seafood entrees, before we must say goodbye for the purposes of today’s post. We’ve got a fried fish sandwich, a fried seafood platter (with fried fish, shrimp & clams strips with fries and slaw), and a crispy tuna roll among other choices. The rule of thumb here is, you won’t be disappointed. So chow down!

Remember, however, that no matter what you end up going with, it will be made with fresh ingredients and the care that has become something of a Mulligan’s trademark.

Why Mulligan’s Is The Best Seafood Restaurant Around Plus More Restaurant Facts!

With locations in Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, Vero Beach, and beyond, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill is the place to go for first-class seafood, a family-friendly atmosphere, and a tropical, waterfront atmosphere that is tough to beat. No matter which of our locations you try, you are sure to be greeted with warm smiles, hot seafood dishes (or cold, landfood fishes, if that’s your preference), and just an all-around great time!

In today’s post, we are going to pick up where we left off in our last post. We have been having a pretty darn good time over here listing off all the facts we could find related to seafood, sea life, fish, Florida, and, in our last post, restaurants. As it turns out, the internet is a pretty interesting place at times, and when you go around hunting and pecking for a few facts to share with your loyal seafood restaurant blog readers, you can get a bit carried away!

That said, we’ll wrap up today’s post with just a few more restaurant facts that might surprise, entice, or even horrify you! Well, maybe not the last one, but we like to make it sound as exhilarating as possible, so just bear with us, please. Before we go down that road, however, we’d like to highlight a few of the reviews and testimonials we’ve received from our loyal customers here at Mulligan’s. After all, we could talk (or write) until we are blue in the face (or fingers) about how great of a seafood restaurant we’ve got here, but ultimately hearing (or reading) it from folks who were once in the same shoes you find yourself in (looking for a high-quality seafood restaurant in Jensen Beach, Vero Beach, or Lake Worth) is going to help prove our point all the moreso. Enjoy a few of our favorite recent reviews from Google’s Local Guides below!

“Would Definitely Go Again”

Didn’t take any pictures , got there 1 hour before it closed. Very nice unique ocean front tiki bar place. They had fire pits and seats facing the ocean where you can enjoy your evening or nights looking at the ocean and having drinks. The mood was great, very friendly waiter, prices for the location of the business are amazing, food was very very fresh and delicious. I had a great time with my girlfriend. Would definitely go again whenever I’m in the area.” – El Ray, Five Stars, Google Local Guide

El Ray, we like your name. We also like your glorious review, because it encapsulates our mission so well. We are thrilled you found our service and food wonderful and delicious. Please come see us again in the near future!

“Can’t Wait To Come Back”

“I couldn’t get enough of this place! They have an area set up with chairs out looking the ocean where you can put up a flag to get a drink. With happy hour until 6 pm my mother and I spent our afternoon there. Although they were busy and sometimes service took awhile for other guests our server Amy was absolutely amazing, not only prompt with us but took care of other guests we became friends with during our stay. Drinks were good and you can’t beat half priced!! We even left and came back for a late night dinner which was also a great experience.

I definitely recommend the sitting watching the ocean if you just want to enjoy some cocktails bu6the beach. What a great set up. Can’t wait to come back.” – Nichole Palmer, Five Stars, Local Guide

Nichole, we also love your name, specifically the “H.” Your review made us smile as well, especially because you came to see us twice in one day! That’s what we are talking about here! You can’t beat half-price drinks, especially when the drinks are delicious and generously poured. Thanks for your kind words and business, Nichole.

“I Love Coming Here! It’s Always So Relaxing”

“I love coming here! It’s always so relaxing and for someone that dislikes beaches in general, that says a lot. I’m never disappointed by anything I get off their menu. Today was the Asian Dragon Salad! The Firecracker Shrimp on it was delicious and had just the right amount of breading on it.” – Missa Fisk, Five Stars, Local Guide

Ahh, the legendary Firecracker Shrimp has more than a few loyalists among our regular customers. We like how you noticed the very intentional breading proportion! When you come to a place like Mulligan’s, we want you to have a uniquely great time. And we have the unique opportunity to do things our own way, seeing as how we aren’t like some of our competitors in that we aren’t serving up the exact same dishes in the exact same way all across the country. No, we aren’t a chain, so we do things our own way, and people like Missa Fisk seem to love it! Missa, you’ve got a great name too, don’t worry. Thanks for coming to see us and for your glowing review!

Some Fun Facts About Restaurants

As promised, we will leave you with one or two facts about restaurants to make your day literally as good as you’ve ever had. Well, it’s a possibility, if not a likelihood. Prepare to be amazed!

  • 60 percent of restaurant consumers say they are more likely to go to a restaurant that offers eco-friendly food.
  • The average household in the United Kingdom spends more than 15 pounds (that’s the English currency and we aren’t sure how to make the symbol for them) per week on cafes and restaurants.
  • Let’s talk about human rights, human rights and kebabs. In 2008, a German court determined that having a kebab thrown at you in a restaurant is officially “not a serious violation of human dignity and honor.” We wonder if they made a distinction between a kebab being thrown end over end, like a javelin, or spinning sideways. These things matter, folks.
  • Sometimes, when you attend a restaurant that takes itself fairly seriously, your server might pour a touch of wine in your glass to let you taste it, in order to make sure it meets your lofty standards. You probably already knew that one, though. But did you know that at a very nice restaurant, the server might pour a bit of wine in your glass, swirl it around, let it sit, and then pour it out! No, it’s not because rich people think it’s cool to be wasteful (we think), it’s because high-end places want to make sure any and all residual taste from the washing of the glass has been removed.

Tidbits About Seafood From Your Local Seafood Restaurant!

Fish are wonderful. They are amazing to behold in their natural habitat, when you are snorkeling or scuba diving, and they are wonderful to behold in a frying pan with appropriate amounts of salt, butter, paprika, and garlic. Is that being cruel? We don’t think so! It’s just a fact of life. People have been eating seafood and fish for thousands of years, and there’s no sign of us stopping either. As long as there are seafood restaurants in Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, and Lake Worth like Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill, there will be Floridians craving some of the best seafood around.

That’s right, Mulligan’s really is one of the best seafood restaurant chains in southeastern Florida. Whether you are interested in breakfast, happy hour, family night, sandwiches, appetizers, a great atmosphere, a smiling staff, a private party, or menu items that are more akin to “landfood” than seafood, we’ve got you covered. Since 1997, Mulligan’s has been serving up delicious fish and other flavorful menu items alongside the waterfront. Folks who are looking to take a load off while chomping down on authentic Florida seafood get the chance to do exactly that here at Mulligan’s. Whether you come see us at Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, Vero Beach, or any one of our other locations, you are sure to have an absolute blast while eating to your heart’s content!

Alright, we think we’ve made our point — we are proud of what we do and the quality of food we offer. Now it’s time to stop typing your ears off about being a top tropical restaurant, and start talking about what the title of this post claims we would. So read on if you are interested in gleaning some random facts about fish and seafood from your local seafood restaurant! They’ll come quick, they won’t be entirely organized, but if you are able to remember two or three of them, you’ll be able to impress everyone at the next cocktail party you attend by bringing up what you’ve learned in a most arbitrary and blunt fashion. We recommend waiting until everyone is quietly enjoying their dinner, and then blurting a few of these factoids out at the top of your lungs — as we have no doubt recommended in the past. Yelling fish facts is the best way to climb any social ladder. It’s just a fact of life.

Seafood And Fish Facts

  • Did you know there are more than 30,000 identified species of fish on the planet? Who knows how many unidentified species there might be left to find!
  • Fish have a unique organ that operates much like radar. The “lateral line” is a sense organ which helps them move around in the dark or in opaque water.
  • The largest known fish on record is the great whale shark, which is able to reach up to fifty feet in length!
  • Many kinds of fish have skeletons that are only made of cartilage.
  • The smallest fish in the world is the Philippine goby. When full grown, it is measured at less than ⅓ of an inch in length!
  • Fish have been on the earth for over 450 million years. That’s a while.
  • One kind of fish, the mudskipper, can walk on land. Known as a sort of amphibious species, the adaptable fish uses its pectoral fins to skip across the land. It can even jump two feet in the air if it needs to! How does it do this? It keeps a chamber of water for storage in its gill chambers whenever it takes a land-trek. When it is wet, it’s able to breathe through its pores as well. All in all, sounds like a pretty neat fish if you ask us.
  • If you thought the school you attended was too big, get a load of this: herrings roam in schools that are billions strong. It’s almost too much to believe, we know, but some schools have been estimated at boasting some three billion in number.
  • Ready to get grossed out? No? We don’t care, sorry, because the Atlantic hagfish can secrete so much slime that it will fill your average-sized milk jug. The hagfish’s body is covered with glands that secrete a sticky slime, which is thought to be some kind of defense mechanism, although scientists aren’t entirely sure about the specifics.
  • Ready for a slightly cute, if not surprising fact? Whales have belly buttons! That’s right, whales are mammals, just like us, and as such, they give birth to live young. This means there is an umbilical cord involved. Dolphins have belly buttons too, just so you know.
  • The fastest moving fish in the world is the sailfish. They have been clocked at moving up to 68 mph, making them able to cover the length of a football field in less than five seconds!
  • The slowest moving fish in the world is without a doubt the dwarf seahorse. It moves at .001 mph. For reference, it takes an hour to move five feet. That means it would take around 72 hours to move the length of a football field.
  • Fish are one of the six identified groups of animals. The others are birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and amphibians. However, their unique composition, specifically regarding their fins and aquatic environment, make them a group unlike any other.
  • Greenland sharks are known to be the oldest-living fish species. Researchers studied 28 Greenland sharks in a study published in 2016. Most of these sharks lived to be a minimum of 272 years, with some getting all the way up to 512 years old!
  • The fish with the shortest lifespan is the pygmy goby, a reef-dwelling species of fish that only lives a couple of months, on average.
  • The world’s deepest-living fish is the snailfish, which is native to the Pacific Ocean. This fish lives at a depth of 26,722 feet.
  • There are more than a couple animals that are commonly referred to as “fish” which are not fish at all. Among them are jellyfish, crayfish, starfish, shellfish, and cuttlefish.
  • Buddhism maintains that fish symbolizes contentment and happiness due to their complete freedom of movement.
  • Only sharks are known to have eyelids.
  • This one is a bit surprising, even to us — many fish have taste buds all over their body.
  • Fish sleep, but they don’t sleep like humans do. They lower their response to stimuli, their metabolism, while slowing all physical activity. Unlike humans, they don’t change their brain waves (from alpha to delta, in case you were wondering).
  • Regarding communication, fish use a wide variety of low-pitched noises to communicate with one another. They can hiss, creek, wail, grunt, croak, or even rattle their bones in order to interact. They even vibrate muscles against their swim bladder, if the mood should strike!
  • Here’s the last fish fact of the day — the best place to get your fish fix is at Mulligan’s! Well, in southeastern Florida anyway. We’ve got a variety of delicious seafood menu items that will frankly blow your mind.

Family Restaurants Near Me: Little-Known Facts About Florida

In our previous post, we highlighted some little-known facts about seafood and sea life in general. These fun facts you can share with your friends ranged from tidbits about slime eels producing an uncomfortable amount of mucous when triggered to some economic statistics about fish consumption worldwide. And in that same little-known facts spirit, we thought we would carry on with that theme, albeit with a different category to explore.

Today, we will examine some surprising, interesting, and downright weird facts about Florida. After all, we are a family restaurant chain in Florida; we are true native Floridians who started Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill with the purpose of providing a fantastic, kid-friendly, beach restaurant that delivers quality food in addition to a great dining experience. The next time you go to search “family restaurants near me”, hopefully we will show up in your search results. But why don’t you just save yourself some trouble and come to a Family Night at Mulligan’s at any one of our six locations in Southeastern Florida? With seafood restaurants in Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, Vero Beach, Sebastian, Stuart, and Lauderdale by the Sea, we are likely to have a beautiful tropical restaurant location within driving distance. Whether you are a local looking to try something new or a tourist just passing through, we’ve got culinary delights made just for you! We didn’t intend that to sound like a nursery rhyme, but it ended up doing so. At any rate, the point remains true. Come visit our “family restaurant near me” soon!

But for now, we digress about Mulligan’s. Let’s get to the promised topic, little-known facts about Florida!

Fast Florida Facts

  • Florida is bigger than you might think. In fact, it’s over 15,000 square miles bigger than England.
  • If you run a state-funded daycare center, you are legally obligated to play classical music for your children. A 1998 Florida law requires it. Then state senator Bill Turner said, “I want all the kids in the state of Florida to be the best and brightest.” And although his rather rudimentary hypothesis has been falsified, the law remains. There’s some governmental efficiency for ya!
  • Florida is also the only state (that we know of) with two rivers that have the exact same name. The Withlacoochee River(s) exist in Madison County and in Central Florida. Of course, these rivers were named in the days prior to the internet (remember those?), so it might just be down to random chance that the rivers were coincidentally given the same name. Another theory is that, in early Florida days, there was one person tasked with coming up with the names of every Florida river. Given the scope of such a task, it’s plausible that such a public servant could have made a mistake and used the same name twice. Sadly, we will never know the real reason…
  • Florida, or at least, its waters, are home to a “space station of the sea”. This is an underwater, permanent lab just 3.5 miles away from the Florida Keys. We don’t recommend looking into becoming a researcher there if you aren’t keen on small spaces.
  • Florida is home to over 700 rhesus monkeys. These monkeys are not to be trifled with, either. This isn’t because they are particularly aggressive, but it more has to do with that many of them are said to have herpes-B. An infected, wild monkey could easily infect you. And that won’t bode well for anyone. In fact, it’s quite possible you’d die. So just stay away.
  • 66 million humans took a visit to Orlando. That is more than any other city in the world. And between Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, great nightlife, shopping, and golfing, it’s pretty easy to see why.

  • Florida is now home to a not-so-fun kind of slug: the giant African land snail. These snails can carry a parasitic rat lungworm. If this parasite is somehow transmitted to humans, it can lead to contracting meningitis, which isn’t fun. How did they get to our beautiful sunshine state? People who practice Ifa Orisha, a cult originating from Africa, are instructed to drink “juice” from the snail. Seeing as how good Florida parents are said to teach their kids two main lessons before all else (don’t join cults, and don’t drink snail juice), we are somewhat surprised to hear of how this practice has caught on. The good news is that the state is currently doing their best to eliminate the snails.
  • Before the recent boom of tourism, the biggest industries in Central Florida were citrus, cattle, and cotton.
  • The original rides at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando included Pirates of the Caribbean, the Mark Twain Riverboat, It’s a Small World, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party, the Country Bear Jamboree, and the Carousel of Progress. Amazingly, all of these rides are still around today!

A Local Family Restaurant

While we offer fun for people of all ages (ask about our private dining events and happy hour specials), we hang our hat on being a family fun restaurant with a great atmosphere. With a world-class, friendly staff that is there to make sure you are having a blast, the excellent food is just the cherry on top. So whether you are looking for Jensen beach restaurants, Vero Beach seafood restaurants, or Lake Worth restaurants, we’ve got you covered at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill. Come see us soon!

Jensen Beach Restaurants: Highlighting Our Charitable Involvement

In recent posts, we’ve been taking closer looks at our menu. We’ve had a few different pieces, each highlighting features of our menu. From our breakfast and appetizer selections, our “landfood” choices, to our our classic seafood dishes, there is a lot to choose from for any meal at Mulligan’s.

We were founded in 1997 by George Hart. With six locations being Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, Lauderdale by the Sea, Sebastian, and Stuart, complemented by an assortment of waterfront views, we have become one of the region’s top choices for a full-service, family-oriented seafood restaurant. We are open for breakfast 365 days a year, and host everything from birthday parties for locals and business parties to the tourist looking for some fresh seafood and a Happy-Hour beverage. If you are looking for a kid-friendly restaurant with top-notch seafood, look no further than Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill!

Today’s post is going to depart from our recent trend of featuring menu items to talk about a different side of Mulligan’s, our community involvement.

Community Involvement

We are so proud to announce that Mulligan’s has donated a minimum total of $309,000 when all of our charitable financial donations are tallied together. Take a look at a few of the many organizations we are so proud to play a part in serving.  

Angel’s Pediatric Heart House

A nonprofit serving the South Florida area, this organization filled an important void within the community as they provide a place where families who have dealt with loss (specifically related to Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) or childhood acquired heart disease) can have an outlet where they  provide each other with emotional support the year round. Their vision is to be a “leader in the community by helping to alleviate the hardships and challenges of families affected by CHD and create a public awareness of congenital heart defects as the most common birth defect.”

Dogs For Life

Dog For Life, Inc. in Vero Beach was founded to help make the quality of life for people and dogs better. They do this by training service dogs for veterans and by operating an off-leash dog park in the area. Since 2001, they’ve been helping veterans with PTS, hearing, and mobility challenges find a way to deal with these hindrances. Their latest program affords veterans the chance to help and train service dog teams. You can learn more about volunteer opportunities here!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach & Martin Counties, Inc.

This non-profit’s mission is to “Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.” We are proud to report that participants of this program are 46 percent less likely to begin using illegal drugs, 27 percent less likely to begin using alcohol, and 52 percent less likely to skip school. This measurable impact speaks volumes to the care and effort that can be found at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach & Martin Counties, Inc.

Junior Achievement of South Florida

JA of South Florida gives young people the opportunity and skills they need to achieve success. Founded in 1959 by the Fort Lauderdale Rotary Club, JA’s educational focus has three main components: financial literacy, workplace readiness, and entrepreneurship. In the 2014-15 school year, Junior Achievement programs reach well over 48,000 Broward and South Palm Beach County students! We are happy to be able to partner with Junior Achievement of South Florida because of the honesty, passion, and integrity that they both model and instill within the young people of our community. If you are interested in volunteering, check out this page.

Whole Child Connection

Based in Martin County FL, Whole Child Connection is a web-based system which provides families in Martin County anonymous and free access to community services for kids and families. They excel in analyzing an individual family’s’ needs so they can match them with the correct services, which include economics, education, health, and spiritual and social well-being. Check out Martin County’s lineup of programs here.

Donation Request

Now that you’ve read a bit about our community involvement, we want our readers to know that we here at Mulligan’s does our best to assist as many regional organizations as we can. Let us know if you are interested in receiving some kind of support from Mulligan’s. We’ll be able to get back in touch with you within 7-10 business days!

Come Visit One Of The Top Jensen Beach Restaurants Around

Mulligan’s is proud to provide Southeastern Florida with some of the best seafood around. On top of that, we have a dedication to facilitate a happy, kid-friendly atmosphere. Whether you are coming to see us at Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, or one of our other locations, we would love to see you and let you try some of our fantastic dishes. Keep in mind we are opening a Singer Island location in 2018! It will be located at 2501 N. Ocean Dr. Riviera Beach, Fl. 33404, so be sure to watch this space for more updates on our Singer Island restaurant.   

More Than Just Seafood: Highlighting Mulligan’s “Landfood” Breakfast And Lunch Items

At Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill, we have a variety of incredible seafood options to choose from. As native Floridians, our owners and operators understand the difference between your average seafood restaurant and a waterfront restaurant that is truly unique. The latter category is exactly what we’ve sought to create here at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill. And although we offer flavorful, melt-in-your-mouth selections of Mahi, lobster, shrimp, clams, tuna, salmon, and more, we understand that there is more to providing a great tropical restaurant experience than simply having great seafood. But, it doesn’t hurt.

So what do we think goes into creating a fantastic dining experience for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? That’s an excellent question, we are so pleased you asked! We believe, in addition to great seafood, it starts with the atmosphere. That’s why we make a point to make you feel right at home the moment you walk into one of our fine local seafood restaurants. It’s always a great time at Mulligan’s, whether you join us for happy hour after your work day or are stopping by the area looking for a family restaurant. We know how to have fun, and with a great range of mixed drinks and other libations to choose from, you are sure to enjoy yourself as well! We have locations in Lake Worth, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Jensen Beach, Stuart, Vero Beach, and Sebastian, and that means that you probably don’t have to drive too far to come see us!

Today’s Topic

So we’ve established that great seafood and a fantastic environment are essential elements for a waterfront restaurant that wants to be taken seriously. Check and check. But the meat and potatoes of today’s post, as the title no doubt already informed you, is about some of our most popular items on the menu that aren’t seafood-based. Read on if you are interested in hearing about some delicious breakfast and lunch items that people rave about here in South Florida!

Breakfast, Lunch, And Dinner

We are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner 365 days a year. No matter what meal you join us for, we want to make sure that everyone finds something on the menu that catches their eye. That’s why we have such a wealth of options of “landfood”, if you will. So while we won’t be listing every single item on our menu that doesn’t come from the ocean, we will give you a quick list of some of our favorites.

Breakfast

  • Breakfast Platter – Sometimes, you need a classic, hearty, American breakfast. We use American diners (the good ones) for inspiration here as you can get two eggs any style, two sausage patties, two bacon strips, home fries, and toast. If you happened to be out sipping on one too many Mai Tais the night before, here is your antidote.
  • Nutella Banana Toast – Everyone likes nutella. This is well known. What is slightly less well known is the fact that Mulligan’s Beach Restaurant has the world’s best Nutella Banana French Toast. Not only do we get the balance just right, but we stuff them inside the toast as well. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, give it a try.
  • Breakfast Burrito – An absolute classic, done right. Choose from sausage, bacon, sour cream, or if you are feeling like a nap after breakfast…all three! Try it on Tuesday to pair it with a $6 Pina Colada!
  • Greek Omelette – We do more than just a classic American-style breakfast. We make a mean Greek Omelette, complete with feta cheese, creamy spinach, and tomatoes. It’s a refreshing way to start your day while still giving you all the calories you need to make it to lunch.
  • Simple & Fit Platter – Not everyone wants to go into a food coma after they eat breakfast, and while we don’t understand such a feeling, we can respect it. That’s why we have the Simple & Fit Platter with scrambled egg whites, rotating fresh fruit, and whole wheat toast to get your day started off right.
  • Fried Chicken Benedict – Okay, we might be getting slightly carried away with all of our breakfast choices, but we can’t help ourselves. And we wanted to feature a southern dish after talking about something so overtly healthy in our Simple & Fit Platter. Our Fried Chicken Benedict comes with two buttermilk biscuits baked to perfection, fried chicken with just the right amount of crunch, and over easy eggs. Top it off with our country sausage gravy, and you’ve got yourself the fixins’ for a rustic twist on a classic breakfast dish.

Appetizers

  • Spinach Artichoke Dip – This is our own house recipe, so we don’t want to give our secrets away. Just try it. You’ll love it. You might even order another one, or two. We won’t judge you.
  • Oh So Cheesey Fries – No need for seafood here, just plenty of cheese, green onions, and bacon. Basically, all we need to do is make you aware of this option, because, really, it speaks for itself.
  • Drunken Onion Rings – These puppies are beer battered and come with our special cajun remoulade to add a southern twist on the classic American appetizer.

We offer many other options, but in the interest of time, you can refer to our menu or just stop on by for a full list! Keep in mind we offer a great many seafood appetizers, like our Calypso Crab Cake, Seafood Trio, and Key West conch Fritters, made with tender queen conch in an herb batter.

Lunch Items

  • Margherita Flatbread – Our flat bread is flavorful and baked perfectly. This simple dish includes basil, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. Simple, classic, delicious.
  • Chicken Bella Flatbread – if you are looking for a bit more substance on your flatbread, we’ve got just the thing. With grilled chicken, mushrooms, melted goat cheese, tomatoes, and spinach, each bite explodes in your mouth.
  • Mulligan’s Cobb Salad – Cobb salad lovers won’t be disappointed. It’s exactly what you are looking for in a cobb salad. With egg, chicken, guac, bacon, tomato, cheddar and jack cheese, and your favorite dressing, what’s not to love?
  • Texas Burger – We are Floridian through and through, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate another state’s take. This is a burger done right, with BBQ sauce, bacon, cheddar cheese, and a juicy patty…it’s pretty tough to be disappointed.
  • Philly Steak – In keeping with the homages, we also know how to prepare a pretty darn good Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, if we do say so ourselves. With onion rings on top, melted cheese, more onions, mushrooms, and of course, tender steak, it’s one to try if the mood strikes.
  • Our BLT – This is another classic that people who aren’t in a seafood mood will typically enjoy. Keep in mind you can substitute the “B” for turkey or Mahi for just a bit more!
  • Chicken Bella Wrap – Finally, we have the Dr. Marty recommended wrap. Complete with roasted mushrooms, goat cheese, greens, tomatoes, grilled chicken, and a thai ginger wrap, this is one of our customers’ top choices in the lunch department.

Whether you are looking for a family restaurant in Jensen Beach, are searching “fresh seafood near me” into your search bar, or just want to find the best restaurant around you, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill is worthy of your consideration. While we certainly have a  great seafood menu, we wanted you to be aware of some other options that we are proud to offer at all of our Southeastern Florida locations. In our next post, we will be taking a look at some of our dinner and dessert options that we didn’t have time to highlight today. Keep a look out for that one, and come on down to Mulligan’s the next time you are in the mood to have some great food and a fun time!

Learn What Different Types Of Fish Taste Like And What Pairs Well With Each

When it comes to tropical restaurants in southern Florida, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill represents an incredible option for people looking to have a great time while enjoying a variety of seafood and more. When we say more, we thought we might say “landfood”, but that probably would throw people off, and take away from our primary focus, which is seafood, seafood, and more seafood. Again, we have many other options, but for the purposes of this article, we are going to highlight various types of fish, many of which you can find at your local top seafood restaurant, Mulligan’s. Not only will we describe what each fish tastes like and how to prepare it, but also what kind of supplemental food and wine will pair well with each fish type described.

But before we dive into today’s topic, allow us to briefly describe our passion for quality seafood and providing it to locations that include Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, and Vero Beach. In addition to being a family restaurant that kids will enjoy, we offer a little bit of everything that most anyone can enjoy, from expertly made cocktails during happy hour, private parties and hosted events, and an incredible atmosphere on the waterfront. So the next time you find yourself searching for a great “waterfront restaurant near me”, for instance, Mulligan’s should be high on your list of priorities to check out!

A Quality Seafood Restaurant

But back to the quality seafood we mentioned. Having been around the South Florida region since 1997, that goes to show that we are at least doing something right to stick around this long. But just getting by has never been our style. We much prefer excellence to the status-quo, which is why we are proud to be a full-service, family-oriented, seafood restaurant that is open everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – 365 days a year. With a world-famous monster fish fry, plenty of big-screen TVs to watch the game and enjoy a cold one, or just flat out have a great tasting, freshly caught plate of delicious fish while you enjoy the company of loved ones. We make a point to create a lively atmosphere (within reason) with that classic Floridian hospitality. From the top down, we have a passion for high quality seafood and world-class service.

Hopefully you will excuse that pseudo-rant about what makes our seafood restaurants so great. Sometimes we don’t know when to stop once we get going on what Mulligan’s has to offer families and other people looking for a great time. But we digress. As promised, let’s take a look at some common, and uncommon fish, what their flavor profile looks like, and more!

Cod Fish

Let’s start with a more commonly prepared and consumed fish – often called the chicken of the sea. It has received that nickname due to its mild taste and flaky qualities. Although there are two distinct kinds of cod, Pacific and Atlantic, you will typically see them marketed by seafood restaurants and supermarkets as “Scrod Cod”, Icelandic Cod, or even Lingcod, with the latter not even being an actual type of cod. Rather than Scrod and Icelandic being nominal replacements for Pacific and Atlantic, Scrod Cod is actually a term which denotes a smaller cod, usually under 2 ½ pounds. Less intriguingly, Icelandic Cod simply refers to cod that is caught near Iceland.

While both Atlantic and Pacific Cods have a mild flavor and are considered lean, the most notable difference between the two kinds is that Pacific Cod is less firm, chiefly because it has more moisture than its sister kind to the east.

Preparation

We figure many of you are familiar with cod and that it is usually breaded or battered. If you have ever been to England, you will find that cod is used in their classic fish and chips recipes all over the place. But ultimately, you can saute, steam, fry, bake, or broil cod with little fuss. With a mild flavor, cod represents a great platform for supplemental flavors and seasoning, such as tartar or cocktail sauce. If you are in the mood for such a whitefish fish and chips dish, try our Monster Fish and Chips plate over here at any of our Mulligan’s seafood grill locations! And in terms of pairing, we are going to keep this one fairly simple. Beer. Try it with beer, like a good lager. It’s absolutely fantastic.

Mahi Mahi

One of our most popular kinds of fish we use to prepare a variety of dishes at our tropical restaurants is Mahi Mahi. If you’ve tried this kind of fish before, you may be surprised by its inherent heartiness – to the point where you might not want to go back to try other types of lighter fish. As Kevin James explained to his wife in an episode of The King of Queens (excuse us if we date ourselves here), “I just found out there is a fish that tastes like meat. I’m going to eat that.” We can’t blame you, Kevin. And despite playing a fictional character while he said that, we are confident that if Kevin ever came down to Lake Worth or Jensen Beach, he would be delighted by our Fried Mahi Mahi Fingers or our Fried Mahi Sandwich, which is perfectly prepared to be golden brown, with just the right amount of crisp.

Nutritional Value

But back to the details. In addition to tasting great, Mahi Mahi brings an exceptional range of nutritional value to the table. It’s a great source of protein, contains less saturated fat than many of its fish counterparts, has low sodium (despite being a saltwater fish), is rich in OMega 3, and contains Niacin, vitamin b12, selenium, and more!

Taste

Surprisingly, many people have never tried Mahi Mahi. When people learn that Mahi Mahi is a sustainable fish, meaning it can’t be over-fished, many are encouraged by that fact alone to try it out. And when they do, they quickly learn what all the hype is about. The blend of mild sweetness with its capacity to mix with other flavors is second to none in the fish world. In Hawaii, where much of the world’s Mahi Mahi is caught, they recommend eating it fresh, which is an assessment with which we concur. But you can grill it, saute it, broil it, put some mango salsa with a macadamia nut crust to make it really pop, or try it fried on grilled rye bread with Swiss cheese, cole slaw, and thousand island dressing for an awesome take on a classic American sandwich! By the way, you can find the latter at any Mulligan’s Beach House location.

Our Tropical Restaurant

While we’ve highlighted just two of our favorite kinds of fish, do not fear! We’ve just decided to make this a two part series, so we can talk about more fish and their flavor profiles in our next post. This one was just too much fun, and with so much information to share about each kind of fish, we look forward to the next one.

Like we mentioned above, however, we are much more than just a simple seafood restaurant, although we do take a lot of pride in how we prepare our fish. With crab cakes, cheesey fries, firecracker shrimp, lobster flatbreads, a seafood bisque, and a beach house garden salad, we have a lot to offer in the seafood department alone. When you consider we have a full line of breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and drink items to choose from as well, you begin to understand what makes Mulligan’s Beach House one of the top seafood and beach restaurants in the area. Check out any one of our six locations in Vero Beach, Lake Worth, Jensen Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Stuart, or Sebastian. We would love to show you a great time!

Fun Things To Do In Jensen Beach

Of the many options you have when you visit Florida, Jensen Beach is one of the more underrated choices that has become a more popular destination for tourists over the last few years. Located North of West Palm Beach on Florida’s eastern coast, Jensen Beach is home to an incredible waterfront with plenty of fun activities for the entire family. Jensen Beach is called the “Pineapple Capital of the World”, and you’ll have to visit to see why, although you could probably guess the reason. But what you probably didn’t know about Jensen Beach is that it holds an annual pineapple festival, which we will discuss in more detail later on in this post!

Mulligan’s Beach House is certainly another family-friendly activity, being one of the top waterfront restaurants in the region. We combine a kid friendly restaurant with a unique beach restaurant theme. Serving high-quality seafood (and much more) at affordable prices, this is one Jensen Beach restaurant you don’t want to miss.

Today’s blog post is going to look past that primary option (we may be biased). We will look at other fun things to do in Jensen Beach whether you are a tourist looking for a good time or are a local who is looking to rediscover their own community. You are probably missing out on a good time, so go ahead and read on if you are interested in some free advice to have some fun!

The Sea Turtle Beach!

Okay, if you are a local, you are probably already familiar with this one, and for good reason. First of all, it is a free day in the sun with the water right there, so it’s tough to go wrong with an inexpensive option like that, especially if you are trying to have a vacation without eating away too much into your savings.

The Sea Turtle Beach is popular activity for people into swimming, walking, playing beach games, or simply relaxing, pretty much anyone and everyone is guaranteed to have a good time when the weather is nice. And guess what? The weather is generally wonderful here in Jensen Beach. Great for the whole family, this is an activity worth considering. As one reviewer noted, “”Fun with the family. This is the best beach for families who appreciate lots of activities. The vast stretch, 1,500 feet long, has lifeguards, extensive food concessions, volleyball, and picnic tables. The park manages to remain in a nicely maintained natural state despite its popularity.” A natural vibe is tough to find in such a popular region, and that makes the Sea Turtle Beach worth consideration for an affordable family day in the sun.

Flatlined Charters

Based right on the waterfront, Flatlined Charters with Captain George Gozdz is simply one of the best times you will have in Jensen Beach, should you choose to go. After all, Captain Gozdz has his own television show, “Reel Time Florida Sportsman”. If you are a resident in this area then you probably already know that the captain is a legendary fisherman in these parts. George is a native Floridian and loves to have fun while out on the water. If you are a serious fisherman or an aspiring one, Captain Gozdz is sure to bring you the fishing experience of a lifetime at Flatlined Charters. This is a Jensen Beach can’t miss.

Clay Habit Studio and Supply

If you are interested in the arts and perhaps getting in touch with the artist within yourself during your vacation, or in general it should be said, then Clay Habit Studio and Supply is a fantastic resource for clay related products and support. They have the pottery supplies, clay bodies, chemicals, and even offer kiln repair services to the tri-county area. But best of all, they offer classes as well. And if you are a local, Clay Habit Studio and Supply will help you set a pottery club in your own community as well!

Indian Riverside Park

Indian River Lagoon is home to one of Jensen Beach’s hidden gems. A great time for the whole family, get ready to experience a butterfly garden, an interactive play water fountain, a fishing pier, four picnic pavilions, and the Frances Langford Center (which happens to be available for more formal events, just FYI). Pets on leashes are allowed at the Indian Riverside Park, and you can enjoy fly fishing as well as light tackle fishing. Indian Riverside Park is also a great option for those looking for Jensen Beach activities that are accessible for people with disabilities. This location is ADA Compliant and is wheelchair friendly.

The Children’s Museum Of The Treasure Coast

Speaking of Indian Riverside Park, it is home to a world of exploration and discovery for children, which is also called the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast. The museum opened in 2008 with a unique idea. Children are able to role play shopping for groceries at “Our Town Market”, one of our exhibits. They can even act out being cashiers at this exhibit. This is just one of the many things to do at the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast (they have a toddler-specific exhibit as well).

As one happy parent put it, “Best Children’s Museum! Geared to younger children-took our 2 yr.old grandson here and he loved it! His favorite exhibits were the Town Market (he could push and fill a shopping cart) and the Car Care Center (he could look in the engine and change the tire). Also great- the train display, the full size Spanish galleon (pirate ship), the outdoor spaces- overall, an excellent museum!” As this kind reviewer has confirmed, kids flat-out love this museum, even the young ones!

The Jensen Beach Pineapple Festival

Now we come to it; the holy grail of Jensen Beach activities (we are humbly excluding our very own tropical restaurant from this hypothetical competition). The Jensen Beach Pineapple Festival started in 1988 with the Jensen Beach Centennial Celebration, highlighted by a concert by Marie Osmond herself.

One of the only street festivals you will find throughout South Florida, the 2017 iteration will boast performers the likes of Drake White and The Big Fire, Smash Mouth, Lincoln Brewster, and local bands as well! Be sure you don’t miss the authentic Bahamian Market from Eleuthera which hosts arts, crafts, island music, and a wild Junkanoo parade the whole family can enjoy. This year, the festival will be on the weekend of November 11-13. Stop by Mulligan’s for a waterfront restaurant experience so you can comfortably enjoy all the waterfront sites and sounds while you sip on one of our famous cocktails!

Mulligan’s Beach House

Let’s talk about Mulligan’s in more detail, because while there are many awesome adventures you can have in this area, when it comes to Jensen Beach restaurants, there is really only one choice which blends family fun with a fantastic waterfront experience.

But we go beyond seafood and being kid-friendly. We have fantastic happy hour deals with delicious appetizers and beverages. If you want to watch the game on a Saturday afternoon, we’ve got you covered there too. We are native Floridians who love to entertain and show people a good time. With fantastic seafood options an incredible variety of menu items that go beyond the realm of seafood, we love having a blast with our customers. Come stop by Jensen Beach’s best beach restaurant the next time you are in town!

What People Are Saying About Mulligan’s Beach House Bar And Grill

Most of our local Floridian readers likely already know how beautiful a spot Jensen Beach is. Located north of Stuart and just south of Savannas Preserve State Park, there aren’t too many places you could rather be than at a lovely waterfront restaurant at Jensen Beach. Luckily, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar at Jensen Beach is such a waterfront restaurant, serving delicious seafood and other menu items that will be sure to delight your tastebuds. While you are busy tasting, you’ll be able to take in the sights and sounds of the water, as Mulligan’s is one of the top beach restaurants around.

Today’s post is going to be dedicated to our readers who want to know what people are saying about Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill. In today’s day and age, there are more negative reviews for businesses than bits of sand on the beach. It makes sense, too. People don’t enjoy it when they receive a poor product or service, and want others like them to know what happened. But conversely, when people get what they expect, they are much less likely to go out of their way and leave a positive review. With that in mind, we at Mulligan’s are very proud of the positive feedback we have received throughout the years. But we don’t have to look far to find some glowing reviews about the wonderful customer experiences we daily provide.

So, you’ll have to excuse us for a moment while we go ahead and brag about ourselves! We are proud of having the top waterfront restaurants in Jensen Beach, with wonderful locations in Vero Beach and Lake Worth as well. We want locals and visitors alike to realize that they don’t need to search “fish restaurant near me” anymore. All you have to do is make your way on over to 2019 NE Jensen Beach Blvd, Jensen Beach, FL 34957!

“Definitely Recommend!!!”

“This place was great!!!! We drove 20+ minutes to come here for crab legs for my moms birthday and she was more than pleased. They were very accommodating considering we did show up an hour before close as a large party. The calamari was delicious and the servings were large!!!!!  Definitely recommend !!!! Our server ty was great and very polite and professional… we are a large crazy group from New York!!!” – T.T.

We love large groups! So don’t be shy, even if you are from New York. We love creating a warm, high-energy atmosphere where everybody can be themselves, like T.T.’s group. By the way, T.T. is absolutely correct; our calamari is delicious (and huge), and TY is a great server. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review, T.T.

“The Hot Wings Were Super And A Good Value”

“We recently stopped in for afternoon drinks and apps. We sat at the bar in front along the street and enjoyed a beautiful day and view of the river. The spicy shrimp were tasty and the hot wings were super and a good value. Our bartender was very attentive.” – Dee B.

We couldn’t agree more with Dee, the spicy shrimp are absolutely incredible! By the way, Dee, thanks for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We are very pleased you had a good time and were had great service! We make a point to ensure that all of our staff, be they bartenders, hosts, or servers, all understand that there is no higher priority than the customer. While we can’t promise perfection, we do our best to make sure that every one is taken care of, and that the cocktails and spicy shrimp keep on coming!

“We Love This Place!”

“We love this place! This is our favorite local restaurant. Honestly you might find better fish somewhere else but you can’t beat the atmosphere and service. I love the tacos and always order them. They feature a large menu so there’s something for everyone.” – Kim C.

Thanks for taking the time to tell us how we are doing, Kim! We genuinely appreciate it, and even moreso when we hear that this is Kim and company’s favorite local restaurant! And Kim is absolutely correct, we feature a menu with plenty of options. So if you are thinking that you would love to go to a centrally located waterfront restaurant, but aren’t the biggest seafood fan in the world, we have some wonderful options for you. Whether it’s breakfast, appetizers, soups and salads, sandwiches and sliders, entrees, or beverages, Mulligan’s is the top restaurant around.

“The Service Is Amazing And The Food Is Even Better!”

“Came here to celebrate my friend’s little sister’s 21st birthday last week. We were all first-timers and very much enjoyed our lunch here!! The service is amazing and the food is even better!! I would definitely recommend anyone coming here and eating. We did like a family-style buffet and shared mahi fish tacos, clam fritters platter, and the monster fish and chips. It was also nice to have a view of the river and the boats docked there. Everything was amazing!!” Lina Y.

Talk about a glowing review! Thank you so much Lina, we are so happy you and your company enjoyed your friend’s twenty first birthday with us! Although we pride ourselves on being a kid friendly restaurant (making sure everyone has fun), we are also a top restaurant for birthday parties, company events, and happy hour! It’s tough to find a gathering that isn’t improved by the beautiful beachfront location, delicious seafood, and friendly staff. All those combine to make quite the tropical restaurant, but when you add in affordable prices as well, and Mulligan’s becomes a must-visit, if we do say so ourselves.

“A Long Established Local Favorite”

“Went here for a brunch after a nice weekend in the island. The food was good and the staff was very friendly! We were even greeted by the wonder upon arriving. We had a party of ten and the staff handled this very well. The only complaint was that two orders were wrong. This was quickly fixed without any issue. There was not a terribly long wait for the food to arrive at all. A family friendly atmosphere where the adults could chat but the child present could also feel comfortable. Most people in our party ordered the pancakes, even if they don’t normally like them since the pancakes here are fantastic. Would recommend this restaurant as a long established local favorite.” – Laura S.

Thanks Laura, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we are doing. And although we weren’t perfect that evening, at least we were able to quickly fix the issue and everyone got what they ordered. We highlight this to show you that we aren’t just full of fluff; we are realistic. Mistakes will happen from time to time, but even when they do, we do our best to make it right with our customers.

The other part of this review that we would like to point out is the fact that we are a “long established local favorite.” This is significant because to note because a there are more than a handful of restaurants out there that locals know better to ignore. Those types of restaurants tend to prey on tourists who don’t know any better. As Laura has attested, that couldn’t be further from the truth at Mulligan’s Beach House. We are the top tropical restaurant around for more reasons than our location.

We hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s post, and found it helpful in your search for Jensen Beach restaurants. We are proud to be a top choice for locals and visitors alike. With great specials, family night on Thursdays from 5-8pm (kids eat free!), and happy hour everyday from 1-7pm, we are Jensen Beach’s top waterfront restaurant for a reason. So what are you waiting for, stop reading and come join the beach party at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill!

Welcome To Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill

 

Welcome to the first of many posts about Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill!

But we are getting ahead of ourselves; let’s take a step back and look at Mulligan’s history and how we became one of Florida’s favorite fish and seafood joints.

How We Started

Founded twenty years ago all the way back in 1997 by Florida native George Heart, Mulligan’s has become a staple for Floridian neighborhoods across the eastern coast. President, owner, and founder George Heart has been in the restaurant industry for over thirty years, having opened Mulligan’s while he was still a young man. His mission was simple; to grow Mulligan’s brand throughout Florida while providing a family-friendly, tropical dining experience. George’s passion for high-quality seafood is sure to be noticed by your taste buds too. With a kid-friendly, an entertaining and beautiful waterfront atmosphere, and delicious fish and shellfish, Mulligan’s is the complete package when you are looking for restaurants in Vero Beach, Lake Worth, or beyond.

Special Events

We are proud to offer private rooms for special corporate or private events at our Vero and Jensen locations. Both comfortably accommodate large groups of up to forty guests at Jensen, and forty five at at Vero. And rest easy if you are having trouble thinking of themes or activities at your special event. First of all, there will be delicious food to take the pressure off of the coordinator. So we have you covered there. Keep in mind that while of course we can accommodate any indoor event in our private beach side banquet room, we are also able to host a special outdoor event in our backyard beachside or waterfront patio locations. Between the incredible food, breathtaking location, and our friendly, creative staff, Mulligan’s is Florida’s waterfront choice for any special event you may have in mind!

Our Menu

While you can check out our full menu here, one of our customer’s favorite offerings is that we are a full service bar and grill, serving breakfast, appetizers, soups and salads, sandwiches and sliders, entrees, and a great lineup of cocktails and other beach house favorites. Even if you aren’t a “seafood person” we are sure you can find something you will enjoy. Whether it’s steak n’ eggs, stuffed french toast, a juicy burger, or a southern fried chicken sandwich, we offer a wide variety of dishes without sacrificing the quality of our food. Perhaps best of all for families, are prices are reasonable, so you can take out the kids or in-laws without worrying about the size of the dent that it’s going to make in your wallet.
