The location is the best thing about the Dolphin Bar. Right on the intercoastal, the windows open onto the river. This place has alot of history as the Outrigger and the photos are neat to look at and the decor is very nice. The menu however, was not my style. Too many dishes came with hollandaise sauce and the prices... More

Looking for fresh and varied seafood? Maybe have a taste for a unique and full salad bar, or a bowl of homemade soup and a drink from the bar? Come, stop in, and enjoy all of this, plus a view that can't be beat and runs from the Stuart Causeway to the Jensen Causeway. Purchased and run by Francis Langford... More

I happen to live in Jensen Beach and I frequent Dolphin Bar and Restaurant often. I have written several reviews for TA and I think someone posting from a mobile phone--the first time--is just looking to complain without a... More

It had Been 7 or 8yrs since we were last here and it wasn't the same the au gratin potatoes which was truly the best we've had tasted stale like they had been sitting around a day or so and had been microwaved. My wife had the fried shrimp which had been way overcooked, had the prime rib which was... More

We had a big group here for dinner Sunday night, 18 of us. The restaurant is right on the river and there is outdoor seating over the water. This place has lots of history as a destination for Hollywood stars in the 50s and 60s and there are plenty of pictures to browse. The building itself is fantastic inside and... More

To be fair, we had dinner at Dolphin along with our group of nearly 100! Despite the huge group, they were prepared for us and had ample staff to provide very good service and the food came out quickly. We had lobster bisque that was really thick and overly seasoned. Also had grilled grouper that was a bit overcooked -... More

We sampled a crabcake, mozarella shrimp,burgers,soups and salads, all excellent. Pam was our server and was very pleasant, helpful and upbeat. The Dolphin is by... More

We wanted to eat waterview tonight and were looking for a place under an hour away. Dolphin Bar fit both bills. Easy to get to and a beautiful drive. The restaurant is very large and was not crowded. We got their early enough for their happy hour but we chose to order off the regular menu. We started with the... More

Pam was bartending the inside bar and was rude and intentionally ignored my husband and I because we wanted to wait 20 minutes to order happy hour appetizers. We were served our drinks and ignored. We cashed out and went to the outside bar and had excellent service with Gordy. We visit this restaurant weekly and will never let Pam... More
