It won’t be long until the building that housed the former Brix Italian Fishery, located on the Loxahatchee River, north of Burt Reynold’s Park, will be demolished. In its place will be a new restaurant called the Jupiter Inlet Restaurant. With plans to connect to Jupiter’s Riverwalk, Jupiter Inlet Restaurant will feature 350 seats, outdoor cabana seating, indoor and outdoor live music, and public boat docks with nine boat slips. Directly next to the new establishment will be a new fishing pier stretching 225 feet along US1, a $1 million project certain to attract boaters and fishermen from all over. Prior to these plans, the Brix Italian Fishery had been vacant since 2011.
Even though there has been a recent influx of new developments in Jupiter, such as Harbourside Place, there are still many local places that have withstood the tests of time and continue to thrive. This is one of the reasons why people are so drawn to our quaint little town: they are able to enjoy the best of both worlds. Eat a quick sub at family-owned Connection or a delicious cupdake at DD’s Cupcakes off Center Street, then travel over to Harbourside for a drink at Tommy Bahama’s, overlooking the shimmering waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. The choice is yours, and the possibilities are endless.
