"Where can I find waterfront restaurants near me in Melbourne Beach?" We've got your answer, and we are going to include the neighboring towns as well such as Indialantic, Indian Harbour Beach and Satellite Beach.
While there are several options to choose from beachside, we think it is important to share that this part of the Florida coast is highly residential, which is one of the reasons we love it so much. There are so many gorgeous homes right on the water! This is one of the main reasons we chose to move here from the Northeast. We weren't looking for lots of hustle and bustle in our neighborhood, but since the east side of A1A is mostly homes, it also means that there are fewer dining options directly on the water beachside. There are, however, TONS of options on the mainland side just around the corner! We put together a family of blog posts that describes these waterfront restaurants separated by area:
Now that that's out of the way...
Here are your restaurants on the water beachside from Melbourne Beach to Satellite Beach!
Some of the best restaurants on the water in Melbourne Beach are Cafe Coconut Cove and Sand on the Beach. Another really popular waterfront restaurant is Lou's Blues in Indialantic.
Read on for all the details about these waterfront restaurants and many more!

Billies on the Beach
2525 Highway A1A Melbourne Beach, FL 32951
Facebook description: "Billie's is an outdoor seating sandwich shop located on the Atlantic Ocean in Melbourne Beach, fl. Best burgers on the beach, everything is made to order. No microwaves, no heatlamps, just great burgers and more with a million dollar view."
Billies certainly qualifies as waterfront as it is located on one of the most popular beach access points in Melbourne Beach. We think it is a great spot to have a relaxing breakfast sandwich and coffee to start your day, but it also has great burgers and other American offerings. They also have some refreshing snacks and ice cream selections.

Facebook Description: "In 1990 Dave Rich branched off from his families restaurant to begin his own resturant in Indian Harbour Beach, where it got a little too hot. After this location burnt down, we moved across from the Hilton. We also made some awesome smoothies at Blenders, in Indialantic. Then eventually hopped mainland for a little taste of Palm Bay.
But now we are back in sweet Satellite Beach. We are located at 1769 Highway a1a (in the Sun on the Beach plaza & Balsa Bills). We provide a laid back family atmosphere with Italian-American grub. You won't be let down. That's a promise. We are helping you "save some dough" and have specials going on daily. Watch the Pizza guy spin dough, or see what's on the HDTV's. The Ocean view patio is a great spot to enjoy a meal with a view."
Whiskey Beach Pub and Doubles Beachside are 2 restaurants and bars in Satellite Beach that have to be included as honorable mentions. While they are not on the beach, they are directly across the road from it and both have very large outdoor patios that give that waterfront vibe.
