Things to Do in Delray Beach
Although many hotels and rentals have their own restaurants or facilities, there are some
real noteworthy places to get a bite to eat in Delray Beach that meet all tastes and needs
Dining on Delray Beach
The first place to be mentioned is the Pineapple Grill just off 8th street, a short
distance from downtown. The Pineapple Grill is a favorite of locals and offers nouveau
cuisine with a kick for a pretty decent price.
Also currently popular and inexpensive, is Doc's on Swinton Avenue, near the Old School
Square. Doc's will cater to a healthy appetite, but in such a tasty way you don't know
what you're eating is good for you! Another expensive trendy catch is Dakotah's on
Atlantic, where the nouveau cuisine is fresh, and elegant with every mouthful.
While on Atlantic, you must try Pete's Stone Crabs. Pete's is a favorite of locals, but is
also on the somewhat pricey side. It can be hard to get reservations, so book early.
Pete's has some of the area's best seafood and while you wait or while you digest, take as
minute to check out the art gallery that's adjacent to it. Just down from Pete's is the
Colony Hotel. Music wafts throughout the streets from their bands and musicians, who often
move out into the fresh air of the sidewalk. If you're still looking for seafood, there's
Busch's Seafood, which views of the Intracoastal.
Delray Beach Nightlife
For a less expensive route, with a fabulous view, is the famous Boston's on the Beach.
Boston's has been around for years and has lunch and dinner served nightly. The bar is
often popular with a younger crowd at night who come to dance to Reggae music on one of
two decks overlooking the ocean. Boston's convenience, view and the fact that you can walk
in with the whole family right off the beach make it a popular hangout for everyone. For
an older crowd, try the jazz at Peter's.
If you're looking for some nightlife, stay on Atlantic Ave. Next to Boston's is the hot
spot, 6 South. People come from all over for the taste of Miami in this newly redecorated
art deco bar. You can also have a drink poolside across the street at the Marriott Hotel.
Your best bet, however, is to walk down Atlantic and stop where you hear the music.
Sometimes it's out on the sidewalk. Sometimes it's in a cafe. But the lights, sounds and
voices of happy folks will beckon you somewhere. So follow, and
