good fresh seafood. Too loud and problematic during mosquito season. servers are usually too busy and talk too much. Servers are however knowledgable about the menu.

Great atmosphere food is just ok. I kept thinking how I was overpaying for food I didn't love. Waitress must have attention issues.

Conveniently located on the water in Jensen Beach. They have an Early Bird Menu from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm that has a lot of reasonably priced selections that even include a desert. I especially like the Catch of the Day which can be either Dolphin or Salmon. My wife especially likes their salad bar. They have seating with a... More

A beautiful old Florida atmosphere right on the water. Christine was our server and she was very attentive right there to refill drinks. Food was better than average but not spectacular. They have a great number of early bird specials that are available from 4-5:30. Value for the price very good. And dessert is included.

We have been here several times over the past few years, most often for happy hour. The Dolphin Bar is nice because it's on the in the water, has a more upscale atmosphere, and has a good happy hour menu in the bar. If you order 2-3 items from the happy hour menu it's a sufficient amount of food for... More

Don't waste your time or money..... I wish we had spoken to the hotel staff first or we would have avoided this place. The parking lot was full and the reviews we read were favorable. What we found was completely different...maybe it was an off night????? When we arrived we found the exterior and interior to be quaint and in... More

They always have great seafood, but we like going for happy hour, all the appetizers at the bar are half price, Peel & Eat Shrimp, Escargot, Fish dip, etc.

We had heard a lot about this restaurant and maybe we went with too high expectations. We found it to be high priced for average food. The service and location are great, but I must say we won't be rushing back.

The Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House may look like a riverside shack but looks are deceiving. Inside, it's a large quite crowded restaurant with a history. The food is nothing less than amazing ... especially the Oriental Tuna which I ordered very rare, just seared on the outside. It came over linguine with oriental vegetables and a spicy very good...
