Plates with shrimps served in a restaurant. People eating.

Whether you’re looking for a quick lunch between sightseeing or a white tablecloth dinner after a day at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, we think that you’ll find everything that you’re looking for in Fort Pierce. And while beachy Fort Pierce restaurants can showcase the very best of the sea, the diverse cuisines in this waterfront town will surprise your tastebuds every time. Take a look at our favorite spots:

12A Buoy

If you’re a fan of seafood, then this hidden gem will blow your mind with its delicious menu. 12A Buoy specializes in freshly caught seafood with a relaxing atmosphere, so it’s a great place to unwind after a long day at the golf course or a busy morning of traveling. Everyone has their favorites, from the Miami soup to the lobster mac and cheese, but the candied bacon receives rave reviews across the board. Don’t miss out!

121 Tapas on the Water

Looking for an upscale dining experience without all the fuss? 121 Tapas on the Water will keep the wine flowing and the tasty dishes coming. This eatery made a name for itself with its small plates and cocktail menus, and you can even catch live music at night. Try the burrata for two for an indulgent starter or go all out with the Creekstone Farm Filet Mignon with truffle mac and cheese.

Taco Dive

Want to find a casual lunch spot that brings bold flavors? Taco Dive is your new favorite restaurant. Featuring freshly-made house sauces ranging from lemon cilantro aioli to chipotle lime sauce, the tacos alone are well worth the visit. But that’s not all that this Mexican-fusion eatery has to offer. Check out the torta sandwiches on local fresh bread or if you brought a serious appetite, try the massive drunken burritos with queso and tater tots.

Moonswiners Bar-B-Q

Family owned since 1981, Moonswiners Bar-B-Q has brought low and slow Florida barbecue to the area for decades of amazing meals. Meat is smoked right on site and cooked on a real wood-burning fire pit, sides are made from scratch every morning, and the phenomenal barbecue sauces? Well, that’s a family secret! Try the combo platter to try a little bit of everything and add the piping hot fried onion chips for something unique.
