Looking for Some Delicious Seaside Places to Eat in Boca Raton? Look No Further!

It should come as no surprise that there are plenty of scenic seaside restaurants in Boca Raton and its surrounding cities. What’s even better is the fact that the majority of these mouth-watering locations are located right on or across from a seemingly endless array of sandy white beaches, meaning you get the best pairing possible for a dining experience: fresh and delicious food mixed with astonishing seaside sights.

From decadent and ornate restaurants to more comfy and laid-back establishments, here’s the official Ocean Lodge list of the best waterfront restaurants in South Florida!

Boca Beach House

Come in and relax at the Boca Beach House, a place with no pretense or stuffiness – just a group of friendly folks who have a serious emphasis on everything local. From the colorful artwork adorning the walls, serving as a veritable exhibition for the city’s local creatives, to the main attraction, the food – everything here is as local, relaxed, and welcoming as can be.

A bounty of chicken, beef, and (of course) seafood selections is hand-selected from the local market several times a week, while the vegetables are all supplied from local farmers if not grown in the actual owners’ garden. On top of that, you can rest assured that you’ll receive a top-quality meal, as all the meat remains raw until the moment it’s ready to be cooked and put on your plate.

With a philosophy of “Prepare fresh, wholesome food, charge reasonable prices, and provide a pleasant, colorful atmosphere” and a menu that’s as enticingly expansive as this, what’s not to like about this place? Just make sure to come early, as the Boca Beach House closes promptly at 3 pm every day!

Boca Beach House is located at 887 E Palmetto Park Rd, Boca Raton, FL 33432.
Hours are 8am – 3pm every day of the week.

50 Ocean

Bordering Boca Raton is the coastal city of Delray Beach, and ideally located on the shores of that city’s titular beach is 50 Ocean. Here, you’ll get a picture-perfect second-floor view of the Atlantic’s pure white sands and endless blue tides, the perfect complement to this contemporary American eatery’s relaxed yet elegant aesthetic.

Like Boca Beach House, 50 Ocean provides extensive artisanal options sourced from locally suppliers and ingredients, and you’re sure to find something to suit your palate. Everything from clams and shrimp to steak and lamb is on the menu, but it all varies depending on whether you came for brunch, lunch, dinner, or happen to have a more precise interest in a food-filled Happy Hour.

50 Ocean is located at 50 S Ocean Blvd, Delray Beach, FL 33483.
Hours are 11am – 4pm and again from 5pm – 10pm Monday to Saturday, then 10 am – 4 pm and again from 5 pm to 10 pm on Sundays.

Deerfield Beach Cafe

A leisurely 5- to 10-minute drive from our Ocean Lodge hotel, this Deerfield-based cafe is another one of the more laid-back South Florida restaurants on the water. Just like with the Boca Beach House, there’s no pretense unnecessary flashiness here – just good food, a friendly staff, and – as they put it – the “best view in South Florida!”

It’s also worth noting that the Deerfield Beach Cafe is a part of the 976-foot International Fishing Pier, a ginormous touring attraction for visiting tourists and local fishermen alike. Before or after your meal, we highly recommend you stop to take a stroll down the pier, whether to fish or simply enjoy the sites. 

…but back to the food! The Deerfield Beach Cafe has you covered for breakfast, snacks and platters, and for any number of salads, entrees, and beverages. Whether you decide on a Sliced Nova Salmon Platter to start your morning off, Fried Calamari, Shrimp Skewers, or Mahi Mahi Reuben for lunch or dinner, or any number of non-seafood items (including everything from ribeye steak to hamburgers to hot dogs to chicken wings…and much, much more), you’re sure to find something suitable – and we can say from personal experience that pier is the perfect way to walk off that post-meal fullness!

Deerfield Beach Cafe is located at 202 NE 21st Ave, Deerfield Beach, FL 33441.
Hours are 6:30am – 9pm every day of the week.

“We booked a week at Ocean Lodge sight unseen based on the reviews here and a wonderful conversation with Israel about our family’s needs. What a delightful surprise to find such beautifully updated rooms, clean and comfortable, a lovely pool, sitting area and grill for the guests to use. My brother and his family stayed here as well and we enjoyed the grilling area as a place for our large families to eat and socialize.

Proximity to the beach was a great plus. This is a wonderful treasure along the shore of Boca Raton. If you are looking for clean, comfortable, and affordable, with a great staff that goes the extra mile this is the place for you.”

“We have stayed at the Ocean Lodge twice now in the past three years. One year, we decided to experience another beach farther North in Delray, but neither the hotel, nor the beach could compare to the Ocean Lodge and South Beach Park. We will continue to return to the Ocean Lodge for many more wonderful vacations. The rooms at the Ocean Lodge are cleaned meticulously each day. The kitchenette inside our room was so convenient with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee pot, dishware, and utensils. The pool and deck are so relaxing and refreshing after the beach and are both very clean, as well. Israel, the manager, is always so kind and helpful, as are all of the other staff…. Thank you Israel and the Ocean Lodge for making these few days in Boca Raton my favorite days of the entire year!"
