I used to come here with my grandparents in the '80s. Back then it was known as the "Outrigger" and was owned by Hollywood songstress Frances Langford. I was very happy when it was re-opened as the Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House.
The food and service is always good. My husband, a chef, can't stop raving about their prime rib. They have a wonderful salad bar, something you don't see very often anymore.
We took my parents on Easter Sunday and had a wonderful meal, then returned later in the week to enjoy live music during "ladies night" in the lounge. The lounge is right on the water, it actually feels like you are in a boat. If you like bars (I'm a "bar person") this is a great quaint and friendly place.
If I lived in Jensen Beach I'm pretty sure I'd be a "regular".
The only thing that would make it better is if they restored the original bungalows out front, where Jackie Gleason and other celebrities once stayed. I would love to stay there, only steps from the Dolphin Bar!!!
