There’s nothing like a “Sunday Funday” on the water (or Saturday Funday for that matter). When you factor in the warm Florida sunshine, the blue water, and the convenient variety of waterfront restaurants, the intracoastal waterway (ICW) from Palm Beach Inlet to Jupiter always provides for the ultimate cruise. We’ve given you a line-up of nine restaurants not only accessible from the water and in order from Palm Beach Inlet to Jupiter Sound, but worth adding to your bucket-list!

Stop #1: Sailfish Marina, Singer Island

Voted the “Best Sunday Brunch” on Trip Advisor, it’s only appropriate to kick off your Sunday shenanigans at Sailfish Marina on Singer Island. Overlooking Peanut Island, this well-known resort and fishing destination opens at 7am with a sprawling brunch and bloody mary bar.

Stop #2: Frigate’s Waterfront Bar & Grill, North Palm Beach

Head North in the ICW under the Blue Heron Bridge, past the first little island you see, aka Little Munyon Island, on your right, then take a quick detour in Earman River on the West side of the ICW. Right inside the mouth of the river before the bridge is Frigate’s, also known for their buffet-style brunch including breakfast food, as well as unlimited sushi, a pasta bar, and bloody mary bar.  The outdoor bar is located at the perfect spot to enjoy their conch salad served in a whole avocado and people watch as North Palm Beachers slow-cruise out on their way to Peanut Island. On Sundays, Frigate’s opens at 9am.

Stop #3: Waterway Café, Palm Beach Gardens

Head North on the ICW from here and bear left after Munyon Island, the right at the fork all the way up to Waterway Café located on the left before the PGA Bridge. This open-air seafood spot is perfect to munch on some fish dip and refresh with the obligatory rum runner on their floating tiki bar.

Stop #4: The River House (previously known as Bricktop's), Palm Beach Gardens

On the North side of the PGA Bridge, BrickTop’s is an excellent choice for a social stop on the chart. This high-end seafood restaurant caters to class and sophistication inside with a small bar dockside for a quick cocktail or fresh Palm Beach Salad featuring crab meat and poached shrimp.

Stop #5: Dive Bar Restaurant, Jupiter

Once you leave Palm Beach Gardens, it’s about a 6-mile cruise through the ICW North to Jupiter, but it’s well worth it. Arriving in Jupiter, Dive Bar is located on the East side at the Jupiter Yacht Club Marina, and offers the best sushi and sashimi on the water, as well as a full grill menu and tropic cocktails. If you’re in awe of giant saltwater aquariums, this is a must-see!

Stop #6: Guanabanas Restaurant, Jupiter

Venture North under the Indiantown Bridge and go right at the fork for Guanabanas, a tropical hide-a-way covered by banyan trees and tiki huts. This Costa-Rican inspired local seafood restaurant is one of the most “instagrammed” restaurants in the area.

Stop #7: U-Tiki Beach, Jupiter

Cruise from Guanabanas West, then North to the Loxahatchee river, and East under U.S. Hwy 1 to U Tiki Beach. Featuring Caribbean food and drinks in an island setting, order fan-favorite appetizer tuna tostadas and must-try U-Tiki potatoes as a side with any meal. The food’s delicious, and the view of the famous Jupiter Lighthouse is even better.

Stop #8: Square Grouper Tiki Bar, Jupiter

A stone’s throw west of U-Tiki is Square Grouper, the laid-back pirate-themed tiki bar on the water known for live music, good bar eats, and rumored as being the recording location of “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere” by Jimmy Buffet and Alan Jackson. This bar is 21-and-up, so leave the kids with a babysitter and bring your drinking shoes!

Stop #9: Tiki 52, Tequesta, ICW Marker 52

If you’re still not ready to go home, Tiki 52 is about 1.5 miles up the Indian River at Blowing Rocks Marina. Beer, Wine, and casual bar food is available, as well as the live music of local favorite Anthony James. If you’ve made it this far, you’ll have a lot to talk about on Monday morning!
