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.

That’s why we say that we are more than just your average seafood restaurant. Come stop on by the best beach restaurant in the area, we would love to host you!

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.

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.

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!
