Miami Beach Waterfront Restaurants

August 10, 2016

Even though Miami Beach is surrounded by water, there are very few places with that mellow, tiki bar vibe people associate with a seaside vacation. Still, our favorite way to enjoy lunch or dinner in Miami Beach is definitely with a water view. Here are some of our favorite waterfront places:

Monty's in South Beach

Monty's is located at the Miami Beach Marina, it has breezy waterfront views and a popular happy hour Monday - Friday from 4-8pm. Head to the bar for half off liquor (including potent frozen drinks) and 30% off wine and drafts. Pair your refreshments with a selection from the raw bar or sample a variety of house-made ceviches and you’ll end the day with a smile. This is clearly not a gourmet restaurant, but it’s ideal for bar bites, live music and beer.

Lido at The Standard

Enjoy their healthy bites menu for lunch or soak up the sun while drinking Rosé. Watch the incredible water views from this romantic bayside deck at this chill-out spot at The Standard Hotel & Spa.

Chef Mark Zeitouni only chooses the freshest seasonal and organic ingredients to produce flavorful dishes that rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit. While you can get an amazing hamburger, Chef Mark specializes in creating artful vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Smith & Wollensky South of Fifth

Perhaps the best part of having drinks at the bar behind this South Pointe steakhouse is taking in the spectacular panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, Fisher Island, and Downtown Miami, plus you can wave to cruise ship passengers as they head out to sea. The place boasts a steady flow of pedestrian traffic and unparalleled energy and ambiance.

The Dilido Beach Club

This an upscale beachfront restaurant serving seafood and steaks, and a refined Spanish/American bistro, in addition to a chic lobby bar and a cocktail lounge. This one of the only places in South Beach where you can actually see the ocean.

DiLido is an ideal spot to enjoy a meal or cocktails with friends and loved ones while watching a late afternoon sunset.

Oceanfront Surfside Tiki Bar

This Tiki Bar is located at The Courtyard Cadillac Hotel, here you can order drinks, snacks and light meals right off the beach. Relax in and enjoy the casual vibe at our popular Tiki Bar, which features a thatched roof, wide wooden deck and plenty of tables for hanging out. Open for lunch and dinner, this outdoor lounge is surrounded by lush vegetation.
