Description: Since its "official" opening on Super Bowl Sunday, January 26, 2003, The Square Grouper Tiki Bar in Jupiter has grown to become one of the most popular watering holes in the United States. It is the home of several music videos, including Alan Jackson's hit "It's Five O'clock Somewhere" with Jimmy Buffett. The Square Grouper also hosts numerous fundraisers each year, benefiting many local non-profit and charitable organizations. Live music can be heard every night, from fantastic local bands to some of the music industry's most famous artists. A little piece of paradise, with beautiful water views of the Jupiter Inlet and its famous lighthouse, this local landmark boasts the 19-slip Castaways Marina and the most stunning scenery in the area.

Very popular beach bar on the Jupiter Inlet. Not much in food (hotdogs), but a full bar & lots of beers. Not cheap, but casual with a great view of the lighthouse & inlet. Sit on beach chairs right on a waterfront sandy beach. Alan Jackson filmed a video here (he's a regular customer & has even performed here) & one night Kid Rock showed up for an acoustic set. Mondays all beers are $3.

Thank Sandy H

“Absolutely Old Jupiter”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Total old Jupiter, hidden, a locals hangout, cheap food, averag priced drinks, this outdoor hang out iis also knopwn as cast a ways.

Dont ask the staff whatr a square grouper is, they will know instantly that your not a local.

Alan Jackson has performed here, actually this is a great place to people watch, and it is not uncommon to see celebs here mixing with the locals.

“Love the bartenders”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

I moved to Jupiter as a permanent resident in February 2011 and so I had to visit the Square Grouper Tiki Bar. I was greeted at the entrance by Bobby, security and ambassador for sure. I went to the bar and I was greeted by a young and pretty bartender named Kelly and she treated me as if we had know each other for years! I took an instant liking to the Square Grouper and since that initial impression, I have returned only to learn that the other employees from the fuel dock to the kitchen staff were all very respectful and friendly. I didn't go there for food so I wasn't disappointed by the bar food fare. It satisfies a need but then, the Square Grouper is not a restaurant.
There is a Marina there with beautiful boats and the Jupiter Lighthouse is in your direct view as you sit with your feet in the sand. No table service here, get it your self nut then, no pressure either. Just sit there and enjoy the view and no one will approach you to buy or leave. "Welcome to paradise" say Bobby as you arrive and it is.
I love all of the bartenders but my favorite...........Gotta love that Kelly!
The Square Grouper is a world famous watering hole owned by Jimmy Burg . The owner has a reputation for his generosity to his "locals", his staff and his community. The Square Grouper is know for hosting music videos b country music super star and resident of the area Alan Jackson. Other hi- profile performers have graced the modest stage there. Jimmy Buffett, KIdd Rock (I think). I love this bar albeit that I am not a big drinker. It's paradise just as Bobby says as you enter.
If you don't expect table service and good food but do love that South Florida tropical experience I recommend the Square Grouper. Brad Paisley song says it all:
" This time of year
All that you need
Is a pair of shades
And an ice cold beer
And a place to sit
Somewhere near the water"
