Restaurants in Stuart/Jensen Beach

Any suggestions for a great place to have a moderately priced dinner in Stuart or Jensen Beach? On the water is a plus.

  1. The Dolphin Bar in Jensen Beach is very reliable and is right on the water......Wahoo's is a Bar / Restaurant on the Stuart Inlet....their food is reasonably good.....they usually have a good band on weekends....and the people watching is always fun there.....11 Maple Street in Jensen Beach is outstanding....pricier....but outstanding.....CrawDaddy's in Jensen Beach serves solid cajun fare and has a festive atmosphere on weekends.....Ian's Tropical Grill isn't inexpensive....has a very creative menu....and the food is always outstanding......

    1. I was staying at the River Club a couple of weeks ago. Just south from there on Dixie Hwy. I found Ian's Seafood Grill. I dined solo at an outdoor table. Surroundings were lovely--no bug problems. Had the special of the night which were scallops. Huge, moist, buttery, delicious. Salad was mixed spring greens. Dessert selected was a chocolate flourless cake--very rich. Had a couple of Heinekens for a beverage. With gratituty my charge was ~$62. That's pricey by my rural WI standards, but would guess someone from the east coast wouldn't bat an eye It was the best meal of my entire week in Florida.

        I'm glad that you enjoyed Ian's. We've dined there many times and have always had a positive experience. Their summer time specials (when traffic is light) are outstanding. And we like to get down there once or twice during the season. We've always experienced good service as well!
