Harbourside Place is a beautiful, waterfront shopping and dining complex located in Jupiter. It has quite a few restaurants ranging from quick bites to upscale sit-downs. Here's a list and a little bit about each of them:

The Woods

The Woods is a steakhouse/sports bar owned by Tiger Woods. The servers sport Nike gear uniforms and bring hot towels to the table after finger-food courses. Patrons enjoy the energetic atmosphere just as much as the food. The rib-eye sandwich is a tender, flavorful steak topped with and Drunken Goat cheese, balsamic onions, and served on a toasted french baguette. It's a favorite at the restaurant along with the bone-in pork chop and prime burger.
