They have a fabulous $5 salad bar when you add it to an entree. You can't beat this place for great food and drinks in a great atmosphere. It is a mini vacation back in time to the original Frances Langford Outrigger restaurant.

I have been to the Dolphin Bar alone and with groups as well as tourist friends. It's my go to place for a wonderful atmosphere and good food. The vintage charm and photos appeal to the older crowd and feeding the fish on the walkway entertains the kids. I stop in by myself for the salad bar. Can't beat the... More

I really enjoyed this waterfront haven. It really just pops out of an elite housing area suddenly to a restaurant. Definitely sit outside. I had a tasty blackened snapper with watermelon mint salsa. Great culinary contrast! My only complaint was the price. 40 dollars for snapper and a beverage I thought was excessive.

Three friends and myself just had lunch at the Dolphin and it was excellent. Service was very efficient and friendly. Two of us had the blackened scallop taco with black beans and rice and others had garden salad with grilled shrimp and turkey wrap. We all shared a hot fudge brownie Sundae. All was excellent. Restaurant is right on the... More

We enjoy the wonderful menu selections and abundant salad bar. The pork loin and crab legs are my families favorites. Believe it or not the meatloaf is great.

The bar area is cool and allows you a view of the river. We were there on Sunday lunch and for $5 more on the meal you can get a good quality salad bar. Fish was fresh all the meals were good. Some plates were pricey. Overall good experience.

Large dining area, but we always have lunch at the bar. Sitting at the bar provides a great panoramic view of the river. Best service as well. Excellent selection of wines by the glass or bottle and outstanding Bloody Mary bar. Just a fun, yet adult atmosphere. Seldom, if ever ANY minors running around this section of the restaurant. One...

Whenever we're in the Stuart area, we always stop here for a delicious lunch. They have the best salad bar, lobster bisque soup and sandwiches. The view is great and we spotted three dolphins swimming while standing outside on the wooden pier!

Dolphin Bar is a nice restaurant located right on the River and the food is always pretty good (a little overpriced IMO, but good). However, they RARELY change the menu! It seems every time I go there , and I live locally, they have the same entrees, appetizers... Mix it up a little will ya'? This place used to be... More
