Fresh Seafood Near Me: Highlighting Our Seafood And Fish Dishes

In previous posts, we’ve taken the time to emphasize the fact that we are more than just your average “seafood restaurant near me”, as you might be apt to type into Google to give you a list of options of local seafood restaurants. If you happened to search for “seafood menu”, perhaps you might find our own seafood menu at Mulligan’s. If you did, you probably wouldn’t be reading this post right now, because you’d likely have taken a few minutes to browse the menu. Then you would have gotten in your car and we could be serving you, right now! Remember, at Mulligan’s, we serve breakfast, appetizers, soups & salads, sandwiches & sliders, seafood and “landfood” entrees, drinks, and much more. With locations in Jensen Beach, Stuart, Lake Worth, Lauderdale by the Sea, Sebastian, and Vero Beach, we are only a short drive away if you are in the south eastern Florida region.

Our Seafood Menu

Below you will find a few of our favorite seafood menu items, most of which are dinner entrees. But not all of them are! Keep reading to learn more about some of the best fresh seafood you will find in all of Florida.

Monster Fish & Chips

You can’t tie down fish and chips to any one time of the day. While it might not be a great breakfast dish, you can’t go wrong with fish and chips for lunch, dinner, or maybe even a night cap.

Lox & Bagel

Speaking of fish and breakfast combining, here is a classic way to do just that. Smoked salmon with capers and cream cheese is a hearty way to start the day off right. Come see us for a business brunch during the week, or wake up even later on the weekend. You’ll still be able to get Mulligan’s delicious Lox & Bagel!

Shrimp & Spinach Omelete

One of our most popular breakfast options here at Mulligan’s is our Shrimp & Spinach Omelete. With tomatoes, spinach, and fresh shrimp, it’s hard to go wrong selecting this well-balanced selection.

Crab & Sausage Omelete

Our other omelette choice that includes seafood is our Crab & Sausage Omelete. It’s not a traditional combination, but most everyone who tries the blend of cheddar cheese, sausage, and lump crab meat has rave reviews about the flavor. Throw in a little ketchup or hot sauce, and it’s tough to say no to.

Crab Benedict

While we are talking about crab and breakfast, we should at least mention our crab benedict. We take that same delicious, fresh, jumbo crab meat and put it into our classic benedict foundation. Make sure you try our Fried Chicken Benedict, if you are in the mood, because it’s topped with Country Sausage Gravy!

Firecracker Shrimp

Do you love shrimp with a little extra kick to it? The extra spice that this breaded shrimp appetizer comes with makes it worth trying, and maybe ordering again and again.

Key West Conch Fritters

If you’ve never had tender queen conch in a delectable herb batter, we don’t know what to tell you. Actually, that is a lie, we do. We should tell you, “Get your behind over to Mulligan’s and try out our Key West Conch Fritters this instant!” They’re fried to a golden brown and come with our signature Cajun Remoulade.

Seafood Trio

The Seafood Trio is the holy trinity of our seafood appetizers, if there is such a thing. Everyone gets something they’ll love, but to be fair, most people love all three options. You’ll get the Mahi Fingers, Firecracker Shrimp, and Conch Fritters. Those are three dynamite options that balance together quite nicely.

Fried Mahi Racheal

Have you ever heard of the Reuben sandwich’s sister, the Rachael sandwich? Usually, it means substituting sauerkraut for coleslaw, which we do here. It can also mean subbing corned beef for turkey or pastrami. In this case, you can try Fried Mahi in our house blend of special seasonings, complete with grilled rye bread and swiss cheese, coleslaw, and thousand island dressings.

Crispy Tuna Roll

One of our in-house favorites, the Crispy Tuna Roll comes as a Fried Thai-ginger wrap with Ahi Tuna and vegetables. In true Ahi Tuna fashion, it comes served rare with an Asian slaw and wasabi cream to give it a little bit of kick.

Fried Seafood Platter

The Fried Seafood Platter is an awesome option if you want to bring the whole fried gang together to play. Get fried fish, shrimp strips, clam strips, and slaw and french fries. You could probably split this choice with a friend or two, or save it for leftovers!

Fresh Seafood Entrees

Crabby Grouper

Get a succulent fresh grouper filet that comes with our specialty lobster sauce. If that isn’t enough seafood decadence for you, it comes with an incredible crab cake on the side.

Florida Grouper

The fresh Florida Grouper dish comes either grilled or blackened, it’s your choice. Over the top comes our house-made Pineapple Salsa to give it a sweet note.

Key West Crab Cakes

Who doesn’t love crab cakes, especially when they are made with freshly caught crab? You’ll get two homemade lump crab cakes, complete with delicious hollandaise sauce.

King Crab Legs

Consider yourself to be regal? Do you love tasty crab and plenty of it? Get 1 pound of Alaskan Red King Crab Legs and eat until your heart’s content!

Mulligan’s Mango Mahi

We take our Tropical Mango Salsa and pour it over the top of our fresh Mahi Mahi. It comes either grilled or blackened, but either way, it’s excellent!

Sunrise Salmon

Who doesn’t love a little breakfast flavor for dinner? Okay, most people aren’t always in the mood for steak and eggs or waffles in the evening. But should the mood for a seafood-themed breakfast strike, try our Grilled Salmon topped with rich hollandaise sauce.

Blackened Seared Tuna

We take our rare Ahi Tuna and give it a light sear, making sure it is blackened enough to give a balance of flavor. Ask your server for more details on how this seafood dish is prepared.

Jamaican Shrimp

Sweet pineapple salsa combines perfectly with our Jerk Jumbo Shrimp Skewers. You might need to order a round of them for the whole table if you let people taste them, so consider yourself warned!

Coconut Shrimp

When you think of breaded, coconut shrimp, you should probably think of Mulligan’s as well. The shrimp are jumbo and have the perfect amount of breading coating the outside. This is a classic, and getting it from Mulligan’s Beach House takes it up another notch.

Stop By Mulligan’s

Whether you are looking for Jensen beach restaurants or restaurants in Vero Beach, you’ve got to come see us at one of our six locations. We are excited to announce that Mulligan’s Beach House will be coming to Singer Island in 2018! Whether you visit us on Singer Island or at any other of our seafood restaurant locations, make sure you do it soon! That way, you don’t need to search for “fresh seafood near me” anymore. You can just stop by Mulligan’s full-service tropical restaurant!

Waterfront Restaurants | More Than Just Seafood At Mulligan’s!

In our previous post, we took a look at some of the “landfood” items on our predominantly seafood-heavy menu that we consistently hear good things about from our customers. Of course, we enjoy them as well. It helps having such a wide variety of options to choose from, so even our staff doesn’t get tired of the same handful of dishes when they dine in! In today’s post, we will continue with the last one by carrying on highlighting non-seafood dishes. Specifically, we will look at dinner menu items, cocktails, and more. Keep reading if you are interested in learning more about one of the top waterfront and tropical restaurants in Southeastern Florida!

Entrees

  • T-bone Steak – 16 ounces of succulent, grass-fed beef. It’s juicy, it could probably feed three people, and it’s all for you. Add mushrooms and onions if you choose. We make a good steak, it’s that simple. Try our 10 ounce Top Sirloin Steak, on which you can add bleu cheese and bacon…rather, on which you should add bleu cheese and bacon.
  • Caribbean Jerk Chicken – If you are a fan of jerk chicken, this will be right up your alley. An incredible array of spices makes the chicken fizzle in your mouth, and it’s topped with pico de gallo for a refreshing balance.
  • Baby Back Ribs – A timeless, American classic, done right by Mulligan’s. Choose from a full rack or a half-slab. They come with fresh veggies. If you order them, be prepared to share them with your whole party, because they smell incredible, and taste even better.
  • Beach House Surf N Turf – We thought it would be a good idea to give you the best of both worlds when it comes to seafood and landfood. We offer the 10 ounce sirloin steak with a skewer of jumbo blackened shrimp, bursting with full flavor.

Pastas

  • Chicken Broccoli Alfredo – You’ve had it before perhaps, but you probably haven’t had it made by the chefs at Mulligan’s. We add our own twist to the classic dish. Keep in mind that all of our seafood, pasta, steaks, and other entrees come with soup, house salad, or caesar salad. We also have gluten-free options available to you upon request.

Drinks

We offer $6 daily drinks, with a rotating special depending on the day of the week.

  • Monday – Margarita
  • Tuesday – Pina Colada
  • Wednesday – Daiquiri
  • Thursday – Frozen Rum Runner
  • Friday – Long Island Ice Tea
  • Saturday – Mojito

But our drink menu goes well beyond that. We offer 3 different mojitos (Classic, Blueberry, Cucumber), 4 martinis (classic, chocolate raspberry, pomegranate, key lime), and an excellent collection of white and red wine.

In terms of cocktails, we offer our house-made sangria, along with many other refreshing beverages. We even have champagne, if you are here to celebrate!

Private Dining

At our restaurant in Vero Beach, we have a private, oceanfront room that holds a maximum of 40 guests. If you are interested in a corporate event, a party, or even a family reunion meal, our private dining experience is classy, fun, and comes with delicious food and drinks.

Highlighting Our Private Dining Rooms And Hosted Events

Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill is one of the most famous South Florida seafood restaurant(s) for good reason. With locations peppered throughout Southern Florida in communities like Jensen Beach, Vero Beach, and Lake Worth, Mulligan’s brings a unique blend of family fun, incredible seafood, a variety of menu items, and great atmospheres with breathtaking views. It’s for that reason that we have a fantastic blend of locals and people from out of town coming into our local seafood restaurants. And after all, a great way to learn about which restaurants are the best in an area is to figure out where the locals are eating, and follow suit. If you follow that logic (we would recommend doing so), Mulligan’s is one of the most popular restaurants in the Palm Beach and South Florida area amongst local Floridians!

Today’s post is going to depart from our previous three in that we will be highlighting our hosted events and private dining packages and features. But keep in mind that people with large, loud groups, are just as welcome as a couple looking for a fun date night with great cocktails and a tropical ambiance to boot. And of course, we pride ourselves on being a local kid-friendly restaurant. So don’t fall into the trap of thinking that just because you (or one of your little ones) may not enjoy seafood in particular that you won’t enjoy yourself at Mulligan’s. There is something for everyone here, whether you are looking for a great mixed drink, a fantastic dessert, appetizer, or some of the best mahi mahi you have ever tried. So without further adieu, let’s begin to take a look at a few of the most unique elements we at Mulligan’s are excited to share with you!

How We Started

Founded in 1997, Mulligan’s was brought into existence by George Hart, a 30 year restaurant professional. Starting with just one beach restaurant, now George, with JPB Capital Partners, have expanded to six restaurants, each with their own eye catching view of the water. Ever since he started the Mulligan’s concept, George has been dedicated to creating a culture that pervades every staff member, whether it’s George himself or a host or a chef in the back of house. That culture is to have fun, and make sure all our customers are having fun and enjoying themselves, too! As true native Floridians, George and the rest of us understand the essential ingredients of a top-notch seafood restaurant; great food, friendly service, unbelievable views, and a clean, fun, happy environment! You’ll get all those things and more when you come to Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill!

Private Dining

Interested in having an awesome, private birthday party, right on the beach, where you can drink cocktails, cool off, and enjoy incredible ocean views? Who wouldn’t, right? But birthday parties are not all we can accommodate in our semi-private banquet rooms. The best part about working with Mulligan’s for a private event (like a corporate event, for instance) is that you can be as involved in the planning process as you see fit. We pride ourselves on helping you from start to finish, with special attention to not overstep our bounds in the creative and planning process! So if you would like us to handle the majority of the planning, just let us know! We are happy to customize a private event for you. Here are the specifics based on our locations:

  • Vero Beach – a private oceanfront room that can comfortably accommodate 40 guests
  • Jensen Beach – although we don’t have a private room in our Jensen Beach tropical restaurant location, our main dining room easily seats 25-30 guests.
  • Lake Worth – Our Lake Worth location actually has two separate private rooms, with one able to seats 40 guests and the other a patio that accommodates 50 guests.

Our Banquet Menu

Not only do we have a skilled staff and a wonderful atmosphere for hosted events, but we also have a specially crafted banquet menu for just these occasions.

With a unique breakfast menu, three select options of beach house lunches, boxed sandwiches for a more informal event, and a three incredible dinner packages (with steak, mahi mahi, steak, fried fish, seared tuna, caribbean jerk chicken, crab legs, lobster tail…you get the idea) and a great selection of hor D’oeuvres at our Vero Beach seafood restaurant, each person at your event will find something they can call scrumptious!

Vero Beach’s hosted events menu are not set in stone, so if you would like to customize a menu for your select event, we would be more than happy to accommodate that request! Keep in mind that full bar service is available to complement your event.

If you are interested in a hosted event at any of our 6 locations (Sebastian, Vero Beach, Stuart, Jensen Beach, Lake Worth, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea), you can get more information here.

Fun Activities In Vero Beach For The Whole Family

Vero Beach is a lovely beach community on the eastern Florida coast and is part of Indian River County. Vero Beach is a popular destination for many looking to explore Florida’s atlantic coast doing family-based activities.

Vero Beach has something to offer for everyone, not only families. Among one of the options that is both kid friendly and adult friendly has to be Mulligan’s Beach House. One of Southern Florida’s most popular waterfront restaurants, our Vero Beach location combines incredible seafood with a whale of a good time for the whole family. Our exciting, tropical restaurant goes way beyond only serving seafood, as we have a full-stack menu which offers a variety of meal options, from breakfast to delicious landfood, like cheeseburgers.

You were promised a post about a variety of Vero Beach family activities, and by golly you are going to get it. Read on if you are interested in planning a vacation to Vero Beach and the Atlantic coast. But if you are a local looking to rediscover your own community, we think you might enjoy these suggestions too.

Nature And Wildlife Tours

 

If you and/or your family is a fan of the outdoors, fresh air, and wild animals, then you will want to check out at least one of these two boating tour options. First up is Captain Bob’s Airboat Adventure Tour, which takes you on a speed boat through the swamp to get up close and personal with wild animals including turtles, birds, and alligators! As one reviewer noted, “A must do! Very simply, Captain Bob’s Airboat tour was the highlight of our vacation! The boat, headphones, seating, etc. are all top notch, and Captain Bob couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating. Captain Bob takes all safety precautions and has a great command of his vessel. My wife and I brought our 4 and 3 year old daughters and would do so again without hesitation. Before the trip, we were guessing we may see a few alligators. I think we saw 50. The bird watching was also awesome. We will be back!” Clearly, you don’t want to miss out on this adventure boating tour!

The second boating tour we would like to highlight is the Marsh Beast Airboat Tour. You’ll get to experience the beautiful Blue Cypress Recreation Area, where you’ll get to see alligators from a close, yet safe vantage point. Winning the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and boasting a fantastic 97 percent “Excellent” (Five Stars) rating out of 189 reviews, this is truly one of the very top activities in Vero Beach. As one reviewer who gave the tour five stars observed, “Reviews were right, this is a awesome tour with Captain Kenny. Very knowledgeable about the area, birds, history, and where the gators are hiding. Large boat, comfortable seats, headsets are very good.”

Vero Beach Inshore Fishing

 

Looking for that once-in-a-lifetime trophy fish you can tell your friends about for years? You might be interested in checking out getting a fishing tour lined up in an inshore flats boat with an experienced captain on hand. Fun for everyone, the whole family will get to experience incredible landscapes from an oceanic perspective when they observe the beautiful Atlantic coasts. Get ready to catch snapper fish and redfish, without forgetting about snook that can get up to 25 pounds in weight! And while you are at it, get coached up and glean a few tips from our fishing experts, who happen to be the captain of your vessel. Check out Travelocity for booking information.

The Riverside Theatre

 

If you and your family enjoy the theatre and drama, Riverside Theatre is a really unique aspect of the Vero Beach community in that it is the area’s only non-profit theatre. Not only that but the unit’s two stages are home to almost 300 performances each year! All performances are produced in-house as well, with actors, designers, and directors being brought in from New York. This way, they combine local flavor with the professionalism of the big city. If all that wasn’t enough to convince you, they offer performances that range from the Comedy Zone, Distinguished, Lecturer Series, all the way to Children’s Theatre. There’s something for everyone at Riverside Theatre.

Mulligan’s Beach House

 

When it comes to good eats with a great atmosphere at Vero Beach, it doesn’t get much better than Mulligan’s. One of the best waterfront restaurants around, you can experience a stunning view of the atlantic while you eat fresh seafood, sip on a refreshing cocktail, or watch the sports game of your choice. With happy hour everyday from 1pm-7pm, we are more than merely a kid-friendly restaurant. If you are looking for Vero Beach seafood restaurants, Mulligan’s is sure to leave the whole family satisfied. We would love to have you stop by!
