Waterfront Restaurants near me in Melbourne, Florida
Ichabod's Dockside Bar & Grille
2210 Front St Melbourne, FL 32901
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!!)

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!

360 Seat restaurant with multiple venues including our rooftop terrace, garden and tavern. Scratch made food, fresh bakery and 69 Beers on Tap! The Mansion is not waterfront but it has a really cool rooftop area with water views. We think its menu, service and cool vibe make The Mansion worth a visit, even if it's not right on the water.
