Best places to eat and drink in Boca Raton

JBs on the Beach

One of the best seafood restaurants in Boca Raton, JBs on the Beach has been serving a fresh catch since 2002.

Much of JBs menu consists of delicious seafood plucked straight from the water's edge in Boca Raton, which you’ll have a great view of while you sit to enjoy your meal. The oysters are hand-selected by talented chefs and are the perfect way to start your meal. You can then move on to something more substantial like the seafood paella with shrimp, mussels, clams, calamari, and chorizo.

You can order classic fish and chips at JBs, but we’d recommend something a little more interesting like the crispy yellowtail snapper. Perfectly fried until golden and served with a generous drizzling on chili-lime sauce and rice, it’s a real showstopper.


At Biergarten, you can enjoy a slice of Germany right here in the heart of Boca Raton.

Enjoy an array of authentic German and American snacks and beers. The food menu consists of all the classics like pretzels with mustard and cheese, sauerkraut fritters, and an extensive selection of wursts. Go classic with the pork and veal bratwurst topped with grain mustard or keep it a little closer to home with the mid-west style frankfurter.

A visit to Biergarten wouldn’t be complete without trying one of the many beers. Take your pick from 24 draft beers and over 50 varieties of bottled beers. You can sip while you enjoy live music and raucous dancing nearly every night.

The Boca Beach House

Come feast on delicious and comforting dishes at one of the best Boca Raton restaurants on the beach. The Boca Beach House is open for breakfast and lunch, offering a wide-ranging menu that is bound to please every diner.

If you’re hitting the Boca Beach House before your morning surf, you’ll need a hefty breakfast to give you the energy you need. Choose from six different types of pancakes, including blueberry and chocolate chip, or a sugar-loaded stack of French toast. There’s also plenty of egg varieties, breakfast tacos, avocado on toast, and classic biscuits with gravy.

Lunch is another great time to come and eat at this beach restaurant, as it’s when you can choose from light and fresh salads, large juicy burgers, creative sandwiches, quesadillas, and tacos. The lobster and shrimp roll sandwich is a classic, while the jalapeno and bacon burger topped with cheddar cheese gives a spicy kick to your day.

Casa de Montecristo

Casa de Montecristo is one of the best bars in Boca Raton because it’s also a cigar lounge. You can simply partake in the beverages if you’d prefer, but those who are interested in an indulgent smoke will be thrilled at just how many options they have here.

This spacious cigar lounge features two full bars from which you can order your favorite whiskey, beer, or cocktail. The expert tobacconists will recommend which cigar to pair with your drink order, taking the blend of flavors into careful consideration. There are plenty of plush leather armchairs and booths you can relax in as you enjoy your smoke, or grab a seat out on the patio when the weather is warm.

Le Rivage

If you’re hoping to book a table at a popular French restaurant in Boca Raton, then you won’t be disappointed with Le Rivage. Paul Collange, head chef and owner of the restaurant, moved from France to Boca Raton in 1984 and has been serving authentic French dishes ever since.

Diners can expect traditional and expertly-cooked options like the French onion soup and lobster bisque to start. You can then move on to the veal sweetbread with a delectable port wine sauce or the roast duck with cherries. If you’re feeling more adventurous, try the frog legs with persillade, a fresh herb sauce.


The local Floridians enjoy reveling in their rich Irish heritage, being among the top five states with the most Irish nationals in the country. One of the ways the Irish are recognized in Boca Raton is at the local Irish pub – the Dubliner.

Visitors will be comforted by the cozy vibe of the pub, which has exposed-brick walls plastered with artwork. The bar is fully-stocked with an extensive list of whiskey and bourbon, and half-filled pints of Guinness are always waiting to be topped up to perfection.

You can also expect proper Irish grub. Order a comforting plate of bangers and mash smothered in gravy or a traditional Shepherd’s Pie. There’s almost always a football or soccer match played on the several TVs, and talented musicians playing everything from guitar to the fiddle come to play live every night. You’ll be forgiven for believing you’re actually in Dublin’s Temple Bar as you get swept away by the rhythm.
