OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Opened by Jupiter surfers as a sandwich shop in 2004, Guanabanas has grown to become an institution in northern Palm Beach County for three reasons: The lush, tropical setting; great cuisine and cocktails (long gone are the sandwich shop days!); and live music from both national acts and the hottest names in South Florida. Guanabanas is a 100 percent open-air restaurant and bar with woven tiki huts and banyan trees towering overhead, and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways underfoot. The team maintains a laid-back, island atmosphere where everyone is welcome. “The diversity of the patrons continue to amaze us,” says co-owner Jeannie Van Boven. “We see people coming from all different places for all sorts of reasons, whether it’s a group enjoying ladies night out, a young family for an early dinner, a couple on date night, boaters stopping in for a bite, or a group catching happy hour after work, all kinds seem to mix and enjoy themselves. Our patrons tend to feel more like family.”

 

GOURMET: Guanabanas re-opened in December of 2008 following a $2.5 million renovation that included creating a full-service, state-of-the-art kitchen. The use of locally produced ingredients is the order of the day. All of our seafood is purchased from local sources and, as a licensed wholesale seafood dealer, Guanabanas is subject to South Atlantic Fisheries Management Commission and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations. As one of the first “Fresh from Florida” campaign participants, all seafood served at Guanabanas is from the state of Florida. See Guanabanas breakfast, lunch and dinner menus on our Menu Page. Remember, all of our seafood is from Florida, that’s why it tastes so fresh!
