Fine Dining in Delray Beach

Best Burger: Dad’s Favorite Burgers

When it comes to burgers, no one knows better than Dad. Dad's Favorite Burgers & Pies comes grills some unique burgers that are fresh. You can also order a side of fries made from their special batter, which tastes amazing. Besides burgers, you can find hot dogs, chicken, and of course, dessert. For a hot day, they have several milkshakes. If you want a freshly baked pie, this is also the place to go. You can grab a pie by the slice or order a whole one. No matter what you order, most people in Delray Beach agree this is the place for a burger.

Best Seafood: J&J Seafood Bar and Grill

If you’re looking for seafood fresh from the ocean, J&J is what you need. Besides seafood, they serve beef fillets, soups, and even vegetarian options. Not to mention, it’s the perfect place to go if you want a drink. J&J is great for a romantic dinner, but be sure to reserve. They can be a bit full, being a trusted name in the Delray Beach area for over 20 years.


Best Vegan: Roots

Are you hungry for some vegan food? Located in Delray Beach Market, Roots is 100 percent plant-based but will appeal to both omnivores and vegans alike, serving unique vegan dishes that will make you rethink what it means to be vegan. Roots has the classic sandwiches, such as the Reuben, but vegan. Not only that, but they have some of the best parm fries in town that don't contain any dairy.

Best Diner: Sande’s Restraurant

If you’re looking for a casual diner, Sande’s has some of your favorites, such as hearty breakfasts and yummy lunches with foods such as pulled pork and turkey. Sande’s is not open for dinner, but if you’re in the mood for breakfast, lunch, or even a brunch, it’s a great diner to visit. For 24 hour bites, you can go to the local Denny’s.


Best Asian: Shiitake Asian Bistro

Shiitake Asian Bistro delivers on the classic Asian food you expect, from noodle and rice dishes to sushi by the roll. Not only do they have a variety of food, but they serve it in an upscale yet affordable environment. With a nearly perfect score on Google Reviews, it’s a place you want to try if you’re as enthusiastic about Asian dishes as we are.

Best Indian: Victor’s Indian Palace

We love a good Indian restaurant, and Victor's delivers. It provides Indian dishes spiced just right and an expansive lunch and dinner menu. If you come in for lunch, they even give you an appetizer and dessert. From vegetarian dishes to seafood delights, you’ll find everything you are looking for here. Like most Indian restaurants, they give you filling portions and plenty of naan. 

Best Italian: Il Girasole and Izza Pizza

We like to put one restaurant dedicated to a sit-down with various Italian dishes and the second as a place focusing more on pizza for our Italian section. Il Girasole is one of the best-rated Italian eaters in Delray, and they include some unique dishes focusing on pasta, veal, and even seafood.


Another offering Il Girasole serves is frog legs. If you never had a frog, it tastes like chicken. Il Girasole is open only for dinner but stays open until 10 PM, making it an excellent night restaurant.


Meanwhile, Izza Pizza, located downtown, creates fresh pizza using only the freshest ingredients. Izza Pizza has several unique pies, including mashed potato, and they have a variety of vegan ingredients, such as plenty of non-dairy cheeses to choose from.

Best Mediterranean: Amar

If you’re in the mood for Mediterranean, Amar delivers. They’re located in a sit-down restaurant that combines an elegant restaurant with something a bit more rustic. From kebabs to hummus, they have it all. Also, they have a bakery as well. With Amar, you can come in and have a feast well worth remembering.

Best Mexican: Roccos Tacos

Mexican food works well on any occasion, with most restaurants providing fresh food for affordable prices. Zona Fresca is a Mexican grill with several locations across Florida. They offer quesadillas, burritos, and their special street tacos, including beer-battered fish. For dessert, they have Mexican wedding cookies, which use powdered sugar. When you eat here, you won’t leave hungry.

Best Steakhouse: Cut432

When you want a special night with your love, Cut432 delivers. This restaurant offers rib-eye steaks that cost a lot of money, but their quality is well worth it. It's also a seafood place. Their seafood offerings are excellent, including charred octopus, oysters, and a crab cocktail. No matter what you desire, Cut432 provides.


Best Dessert: Lily’s Handmade Ice Cream

Finally, if you're craving something sweet after you eat at the above restaurants and you're not feeling the dessert menu, why not head over to Lily's Handmade Ice Cream? As you can tell by the name, the ice cream is fresh, and they have unique flavors daily.


Besides their ice cream, Lily’s has waffle sundaes, milkshakes, and coffee. Not only that, but they use Uber Eats, DoorDash, and other delivery services. This means you can get their ice cream from the comfort of your own home.

And Many More

These restaurants are just a sampling of what Delray Beach has to offer. The food options in this town are vast, topping off a fun day in the sun. Whether alone or with friends, you can create some great memories. For the foodie, you won't want to miss Delray Beach's offerings. Try a restaurant on this list, and you will not be disappointed.
