RESTAURANTS ON THE WATER NEAR ME IN DOWNTOWN MELBOURNE, FL


Ichabod's Dockside Bar & Grille

2210 Front St Melbourne, FL 32901

(321) 952-9532

Facebook description: "HAPPY HOUR: 11am-7pm Daily Amazing lunch and dinner specials"

Ichabods Dockside is an American restaurant located close to downtown Melbourne. It is located right on a marina; so you can walk around the edge of the restaurant to check out the boats. There are a few tables located on a small outdoor patio. The rest are inside, but there is a wall of windows that overlook the marina; so you should have a view of the water inside as well. They also have a daily happy hour to enjoy! (We highly recommend their grouper bites!!)

Chart House

2250 Front St Melbourne, FL 32901

(321) 729-6558

Chart House is one of the few chains that we frequently cover on Vibe and Dine because it really offers it all in our opinion! With plenty of tables on their outdoor patio and a wall of windows inside, it's hard to get a bad view of the water. Their food is consistently great, and their happy hour menu is really large!

It means a person or company making a high-quality or distinctive product in small quantities, usually by hand or using traditional methods.

In other words, we do not take short cuts....and that is reflected in the quality baked goods that we produce.
