“Best Addtion to the Jupiter Waterfront in Years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Everyone talks about the view but experienced restaurant operators Jim and Debbie Taube have put all their extensive history to good use as they built U-Tiki on the grounds of the old Seaport Marina Boat Storage. This place has everything. Location right on the Intracoastal overlooking the iconic Jupiter Lighthouse, good parking, public boat docks, but most of all good food, drinks and a get going service staff. The management is right on the spot making sure everything for your stay is first rate.
U-Tiki is a big place with two bars, lots of tables both outside and undercover, and tables on the sand leading to the Jupiter Riverwalk. What you won't find is Air Conditioning. As locals that is fine with us. Be prepared to be with the "natural" environment. They do have plastic curtains that roll down in case of rain and wind and plenty of fans.
The experience is so much better than other casual places in the area. By-pass Bubba Gumps, Shipwrecks, Guanabans, Schooners and treat yourself and your party to U-Tiki.
If you want something a little more upscale (with A/C) go next door to the Taube's Jetty's. It's also one of our favorites in Jupiter

“Nice New Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

This was our 2nd visit in 2 weeks & the results were pretty much the same. It is a busy place with a great atmosphere and decent food. It was packed on a Monday night with a 30 minute wait. We were given probably one of the better outdoor tables. Without the décor, views and atmosphere it would be just an above average restaurant.

“Mediocre Food-Need Experienced Bartenders”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We decided to try this highly touted restuarant that is relatively new to Jupiter. Beautiful facility. It is clear that they are cashing in on the location and the view. When we arrived, we checked in and went to the bar for drinks. My wife ordered a frozen pina colada...it was horrible. The young bartender mixed something with cheap rum, but it wasn't drinkable. They put more mix, but it didn't get any better. She and her fellow bartender had no clue as to how to make a genuine pina colada. So, they offered another drink to my wife who asked for a toasted almond. Again, they had no clue as to how mix it. Then, my wife asked for a Kahlua and cream. They had no cream behind the bar, but they had half/half. It was accepted, but it wasn't the same and the process took the relaxation out of a drink before dinner. The menu is not for foodies; this food is nowhere near gourmet. It seems like nearly every item including appetizers had some sort of sauce on it. For the prices charged here, there are better places to go even if the view may not be as good. It should be noted that all seating is exposed to the open air with some seating on the sand area where smoking is permitted. We could smell the smoke drifting in our direction from that area. This place needs to assess its food and drink quality. Both are mediocre.
