Boasting over 3,800 sterling Google reviews, JB's on the beach is first on our list for a reason. Though technically a Deerfield Beach location, it's too close and too lauded to omit from our list. Featuring a lovely blue/white nautically styled interior, the beach club vibe is felt in every square foot of JB's. Just a few feet from the beach view is a wooded walkway that takes you right to the sand. For the perfect endcap to a wonderful day on Deerfield Beach, find a spot at JB's.

With so little coming from Hollywood these days, we're not surprised some confuse Oceans 234 with an ill-fated sequel to the infamous heist films (just kidding.) In 2002, The Ranch House restaurant was purchased by the Pallaria family, demolished, and replaced with this beautiful Deerfield Beach locale. Their cocktail menu extends from the eloquent to the exotic, with their unique cocktail menus bringing rare liquors and fascinating infusions to your palate. Their floorplan and expansive balcony offer views of the Atlantic Ocean from nearly every point in the restaurant. Their remarkable menu not only features the best in seafare, but it also includes vegan & vegetarian options for those more selective diners.
