Opening in 2018, it will be located at 2501 N. Ocean Dr. Riviera Beach, Fl, 33404.

We have a great Happy Hour in addition to our Family Nights!

Seafood And Sea Life Facts

But in all honesty, as much as we enjoy talking about our “fish restaurant near me” as you may have searched on your smartphone to find this page, that’s not what this promised blog topic is about! It’s about little-known facts about seafood, and by golly, that’s what our readers are going to get. If you are interested in learning some facts that might impress (or weird out) your friends, read on!

Sidenote: we recommend you bring some of these tidbits up at random, perhaps interrupting a good friend while they are telling you about their day. Consider yelling these tips at them, too, for an added shock-value. Feel free to make it your own, too.

  • The US Department of Health says that you should eat a minimum of two servings (455 grams, or 1 lb) of seafood per week. Here at our local seafood restaurant, we couldn’t agree more.
  • Yellow Fin Tuna, or Ahi Tuna, can weigh all the way up to 300 lbs! That’s 175 kilograms of delicious Yellow Fin Tuna. Of course, we go through our tuna fairly quickly here at Mulligan’s, so one of these catches might last us through a single evening…maybe.
  • Seafood, and fish in particular, is a significant source of nutrition and protein for over a billion people across the globe. In developing countries, this is especially the case. Fish farming is becoming an increasingly profitable business in nations such as ours, in part because the public has started to recognize the health benefits of getting their daily protein intake from fish sources.
  • Our oceans are becoming more acidic than ever before. Indirect causes stemming from climate change have caused accelerated warming in areas that fish call home. The increased warmth of the earth in turn warms oceans, which increases the acidic quotient, or acidification rates. Former President Barack Obama cited acidification as a primary concern related to global warming in an Executive Order he issued in 2013. So while this is not a novel concept, it is one of which to be aware.
  • 8 percent of fish that have been caught are thrown back into the sea, worldwide. While the intention might be good, too often these fish are either damaged, dead, or dying.
  • Tuna bones have a value that is truly exceptional. They can be used for fish powder that has the capacity to enrich typical diets with omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals like iron, calcium, and zinc.
  • We, as humans, tend to dramatically undervalue certain parts of fish. Among these under-utilized regions are backbones, viscera, and the head, which make up anywhere between 30 and 70 percent of fish. These areas happen to be especially high in micronutrients. If you have the stomach for it, we say go for it! But here at Mulligan’s we’ll stick to grilling up the fish parts you have grown more accustomed to.
  • The African lungfish is a remarkable creature. Initially, the lungfish was wrongly classified as a reptile; the African lungfish is in fact an amphibian. Wondrously, they have the ability to trap themselves in a mud tunnel if they sense their lake is going to dry up. In this mud tunnel they can live for years and years, waiting until the rains return. Try shouting the above factoid over a lovely seafood dinner at Mulligan’s, and see how our friendly staff reacts! (fair warning: they’ll have no context for what you are saying). That just sounds like a worthwhile social experiment to us.

  • “Finding Nemo”, the incredible Pixar film, is a ruse. That’s right, you heard it here first. Why? Anemone fishes, the kind of fish that Nemo and his father are, have a unique aspect to their species. Only the two largest fish sexually mature. The largest is always the female and the runner-up is always male. But here’s the kicker: when the female dies, the male then changes sex to female, with the next-man-up mentality of the National Football League taking effect in mother-nature, as the next-biggest fish matures to become male. Of course, the entire movie is rife with anthropomorphization. And by that logic, it could be argued that Nemo’s dad was in denial about his mate’s death, whereby he became unable to change sexes. So perhaps it isn’t a ruse after all. Maybe it’s just a setup. Can you say “Nemo Trilogy”? We can. We got your back, Pixar.
  • Fish have evolved to have incredibly intricate shades and patterns to protect them from predators. Although there is a rich diversity in this conversation, most all fish are countershaded. That is to say that they are darker on their tops, growing to be gradually lighter or more silver on their bellies and sides. This serves a pragmatic purpose, as most evolution does. Whether they are seen from above or below, their aim is to make it difficult to be seen.
  • Scallops are remarkable creatures and there are a plethora of fun facts we could share with you about them, but we will try to limit ourselves to only the best tidbits for our readers. For starters (not appetizers), scallops have around 60 eyes that circumvent their mantle. Their eyes help them detect motion, dark, and light. Scallops get their energy by consuming small organisms in the water. But instead of actively hunting for these creatures, they take a filter-feeding approach. Their mucus traps plankton in the water. The last scallop fact we will hit you with today is that Atlantic sea scallops have massive shells! Some of these scallops grow to be 9 inches in size!
  • Seafood products, a vast category, are some of the most widely traded food commodities in the world. The total annual amount traded is in the range of $150 billion. Japan consumes the most seafood in the world, with Spain coming in at number 2.
  • Menhaden fish have a long history with the U.S. Not only is it one of the nation’s most important fishes, but it is today used for a variety of purposes. Among them are being used for feed in dog, cat, and pig food, health supplements, insecticides, paints, margarine, soap, cosmetic protects, and more. But before that, Native Americans taught some of the first European settlers to come to North America to plant Menhaden fish with their corn.
  • Hagfishes are also known as slime hags or slime eels. Slime eels have been aptly named, as evidenced by their ability to produce copious amounts of mucus if sufficiently disturbed. Nicknamed the “skunk of the sea” by some (not really), a slime eel can produce more than two gallons of slime in just a few minutes, should they think they are in enough danger. This slime makes them pretty much inedible, so we don’t recommend trying to catch one for dinner. And fear not, we don’t serve hagfish at our local tropical restaurants!

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.

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!

Fun Activities In Lake Worth For The Whole Family

We here at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill have locations in Lake Worth, Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, Lauderdale by the Sea, Sebastian, and Stuart. Throughout southern and central Florida you can find our wonderful tropical restaurants filled with happy people, including families and kids, having a great time eating fantastic food.

In our previous two posts, we outlined some of the fun things to do in Vero Beach and Jensen Beach. The two beach communities have so many different activities to offer that it was difficult to whittle our list down to a manageable size. In today’s post, which is dedicated to outlining activities in Lake Worth, we have a similar problem on our hands. That said, let’s dive into some of the exciting events and hidden gems that Lake Worth offers tourists and locals alike.

Palm Beach Bass Fishing

If you have any interest in fishing whatsoever, you are not going to want to miss the bass fishing that can be found on Palm Beach’s wonderful lakes. The butterfly peacock bass are a sight to behold in their own right, but when you add a little sport to the mix, then you really are cooking up a good time.

Comfortably aboard a 21 foot fishing boat, you’ll have a captain who knows Palm Beach’s lakes like the back of their hand. And if you have members of your party worried about being compelled to fish (or getting wet), have no fear. There is no pressure here, only good times. Likewise, if you are an experienced angler or are a first timer, your captain will cater to what you need. After all, it’s your trip! And by the way, if you want to skip the catching portion of your seafood dinner, come on by Mulligan’s in Lake Worth! We have some of the best Mahi Mahi in all of Florida!

A Farmer’s Market On The Beach

If fresh air, fresh vegetables, and fresh water sound like a good use of a day to you, then Lake Worth’s Farmer’s Market might be worth checking out, should you be visiting the Palm Beach region any time soon. The farmer’s market is right on the water, with a small town feel.

As one reviewer put it in her online review of the market, the market has “fresh produce and beautiful surroundings! What a lovely idea to have a farmers market between the intercoastal waterway and the beach! If you are the type of person who wants to get in and out quickly, you are in luck as this is one of the smaller markets where you still have a good assortment of stands and be able to get all your shopping done in a few minutes. Fresh breads, farm fresh eggs, organic vegetables and fruits and much more, make this a delightful place to shop.”

Talk about a glowing review! Lake Worth’s Farmer’s Market is definitely worth a visit to get some local flavor.

Downtown Lake Worth

Speaking of things to do in town, let’s talk about Lake Worth’s downtown for a minute. If you are a fan of coffee shops, boutique shopping, food trucks, live music, quality seafood restaurants (like Mulligan’s), and fun events like sidewalk chalk painting and face painting, this is a downtown right for you.

Another aspect of Lake Worth is that it has a unique, almost quirky vibe to it. As Susan C., of Georgia, put it: “Fun and Funky. It lives up to ‘Keep Lake Worth Weird’. One of the reasons we bought in Lakeworth is the Fun and Funky factor. There is not the typical polished corporate retail and the people are Very welcoming. There is a variety of eateries which are all unique and delicious. Many great festivals and activities year round. Worth a visit for certain!”

Nice pun, Susan! And we agree 100 percent with Susan. Downtown has a little bit of fun for everyone, so it’s perfect if you are alone, a couple, or are going with a family!

Rapids Water Park

Given a ⅘ rating by Travelocity, you probably are going to want to cool off at Lake Worth’s water park of choice, Rapids Water Park, the largest water park in all of South Florida! With 42 different water slides to choose from, the kids are certain to have a good time. While they are busy screaming their heads off and having a great time, you can finally slow down, unwind, and let the sun kiss your skin. The water park is 30 acres across, and boasts a variety of rides and activities, like the splash gymnastics at Alligator Alley.

Of course, no water park is complete without a lazy river and a gigantic (25,000 square foot!) wave pool. Located just a few miles north of Lake Worth, this is a family activity you don’t want to miss out on!

Eco Tours

There are plenty of opportunities to experience nature where the land meets the sea at Lake Worth. And if you are a person who likes to be a bit more active while being a part of nature (sorry, anglers), you can take an eco tour by kayaking or paddle boarding around Lake Worth!

And don’t worry if you have never paddle boarded before, because Paddleboard Connection has experienced, down-to-earth instructors who love showing newbies the ropes. Take sunset tours, full moon tours, and guided tours, and join so many others partaking the fastest growing watersport in the world!

Here is what one of their customers had to say about their paddleboarding tour with Paddleboard Connection: “Absolutely perfect paddle boarding. We came into town for 3 days and called/texted Paddleboard Connection last minute and Vivian was able to work is into her schedule. She was so kind to us and gave excellent instruction before getting on the boards. She was knowledgeable about both The history of Paddle boarding and the area! We just loved getting to know her while relaxing on the water!”

Clearly, if you are on the adventurous side, this is a Lake Worth attraction that is worthy of consideration!

Guided Segway Tour Of Deerfield Beach

If you’d rather get a lay of the land…on the land, something the whole family can enjoy without working up too much of a sweat is the segway tour of Deerfield Beach. Based in Boca Raton, you’ll experience incredible views from the peaceful vantage point of a segway. The coast is truly a sight worth seeing, and better yet, groups get to see the famous “Al Capone Island”, along with a host of other local hidden gems the Palm Beach area has to offer. And if you are worried about operating the segway, fear not, because their instructors are calm, experienced, and will help you out! It’s a low intensity tour, so get ready to relax while you enjoy the wonderful Atlantic Coast.

The Crown Jewel Of Lake Worth

You probably could have guessed this one! Located on 10 Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth, FL., Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill is a full-service restaurant that goes above and beyond “just seafood”. A kid-friendly, family restaurant, everyone will find something to enjoy on our extensive menu.

Found within the Lake Worth Casino Building and renovated Beach Complex, the casino is an attraction in its own right, as it has a classic 1920s feel. And if you are planning on coming with kids, keep in mind that there is no gambling at the new complex. Our community just wanted to keep the name “casino” to remind everyone about Lake Worth’s history. With happy hour everyday from 1-7pm, and a great line of desserts, appetizers, land food, and cocktails, you won’t regret you stopped by one of South Florida’s top restaurants! Come on by Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill, and come get yourself a flavorful menu item that is sure to surprise and delight.

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!
