Just across the causeways from the Magic City, between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, lies Miami Beach, a city with incontestably the most famous shores in America.
Miami Beach also happens to be home to some of the best places to eat, drink, and be merry, from well-crafted cocktails at hidden gems to four-course meals with all the flash the city is known for.
So, slip on your sandals or your dancing shoes (or both, who are we to judge), and check out some of the best restaurants in the city.
The Best Bars in Miami Beach
Walk into the inconspicuous Freehand Miami boutique hotel and hostel on Indian Creek and you’ll find much more than a chic place to sleep.
Tucked in the backyard is the sprawling Broken Shaker, which stretches from the bar itself near the back of the hotel and wraps around the pool area. There’s plenty of cozy seating and the atmosphere is lively, but never overwhelming.
And maybe the most important are the drinks. Broken Shaker has cultivated a reputation for having some of the finest mixologists serving up the freshest cocktails you could hope to fill the night with. What better way to spend a night out than sipping Thai-Thai Baby or a Tropical Orgasm as you make new friends by the pool over street tacos and shawarma fries?
Broken Shaker is located at 2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33140. For more information, visit their official website.

Enter Swizzle Rum Bar. Located inside the Stiles Motel on Collins, this speakeasy-style lounge will transport you and make you feel like you’re much more than a block away from the neon and the noise of the main drag.

RED South Beach
One of the best steakhouses in the city might not be the first though that comes to mind when you’re trying to figure out where to go for brunch but trust us – you don’t want to sleep on the spread RED South Beach has to offer.
Whether you opt for the unlimited champagne and food service with dishes like the giant house-baked cinnamon roll and blue crab ravioli or want to order entrees like pillowy eggs benedict served atop a massive dry-aged tomahawk steak, there’s no going wrong with this upscale Sunday brunch South of Fifth.
Miami Beach may not be a traditional image of the American South, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find top-notch Southern comfort food, which is exactly what Yardbird on South Beach does best.
Located just south of Lincoln Road, the restaurant’s specialty, as its name should imply, is chicken. And what’s a better brunch than chicken fried to perfection and cheddar waffles, all served with chilled spiced watermelon and bourbon maple syrup?

There are few chefs in town with as many stars as Macchialina’s Michael Pirolo has accrued over the years and the food is all the proof you need to understand why. The menu, which changes with inspiration and seasonality, is a testament to one of the fundamental ideals of Italian cookery: that the food should be simple, that the flavors should be robust, that the ingredients should be superb.
Macchialina also has a chef’s tasting menu that makes for an incredibly special night out and their wine list, curated by their expert sommelier (who also happens to be chef Pirolo’s little sister), has earned them awards from Wine Spectator and Spirited Miami.

The Best Restaurants for Happy Hour in Miami Beach
Besides being serving up some of the tastiest pasta and antipasto in Sunset Harbor, Casa Isola is also home to one of the best happy hours you’ll find in the neighborhood.
Every Tuesday through Thursday from 5 to 7pm, come by for the $12 dollar dishes, like the stuffed Italian hot sausage and the arancini loaded with taleggio cheese. And while you’re there, make sure to wash those bites down with a drink (or two) since cocktails, beers and wine are all half off during happy hour.
CJ’s Crab Shack
How do you take a wonderful boozy idea like happy hour and make it even better? Add crab claws.
CJ’s Crab Shack has made a name for itself as a happy hour destination with its ridiculously well-priced drinks, its uniquely long happy hour (most days it runs from 4 to 9pm), and of course, the delightful genius of offering large quantities of crustaceans to go along with the alcohol and the upbeat atmosphere.
Editor Pizza has made some serious edits to what we mean when we talk about happy hour. This isn’t your typical early bird offering. Instead, Editor Pizza sets itself apart by starting their daily happy hour at 9pm and running it all the way to 11pm, which, coincidentally, is pretty much precisely when we all wish happy hour was.
The $9 house cocktails, $7 margaritas and glasses of wine, and $5 beers are guaranteed to make the hours you spend there just as happy as you’d hope.
Editor Pizza is located at 803 5th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
Nobu’s version of a happy hour is a standout because it’s not a “happy hour,” but rather a tanoshi hour (which translates to pleasant or delightful hour and sounds a lot cooler, doesn’t it?).

One-dollar East Coast oysters? Check. Ten-dollar cocktails? Check. In a town where a plate of oysters on ice and two half-decent cocktails can wind up costing you about as much as a car payment, those prices are pretty amazing – and so are the drinks.
The Best Restaurants with a View in Miami Beach
Floating in the penthouse of the iconic Herzog & de Meuron 1111 building high above Lincoln Road is Juvia, a purple and white tribute to modern Miami elegance.
The popular spot, which offers patrons a view over one of the most well-known strips on South Beach and more, can get plenty busy, but even at its most bustling, it always manages to feel airy and inspiring. Then again, maybe a bit of that inspiration comes from the items on their menu, like the opulent king crab ravioli or the grilled wagyu zabuton steak, or from their exquisitely crafted signature cocktails.
Juvia is located at 1111 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
The Miami Beach Standard Hotel rests on an island on the Venetian Causeway, floating in the bay between Miami and Miami Beach.
The building was once known as the Lido Spa Hotel, which opened in 1960, and the Standard has retained a great deal of that old Miami Beach charm. Pass under the preserved retro façade and make your way through the garden and just past the cabanas, you’ll find the waterfront restaurant that’s taken on the former hotel’s namesake: the Lido.
The bayside grill is built out onto a dock that offers a view of Biscayne Bay that’s often reserved for the millionaires and billionaires who live along these islands.
It’s one of the best places in the city to enjoy a sunset over the water and there’s hardly a day you can visit where you won’t end up seeing dolphins playing or extravagant yacht parties floating by (and sometimes a combination of the two).
The Lido Bayside is located at 40 Island Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
Shuckers is a place for those of us who like the simple pleasures in life: cold beers and strong cocktails, pool tables and TVs to watch the game, fish sandwiches and big chunky chicken wings.
Tucked underneath a Best Western in Treasure Island, Shuckers may seem unassuming at first blush, and it is, but it’s also home to one of the prettiest views of Biscayne Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway you’ll find at any restaurant in Miami Beach.
Whether you drive there or pull up on your boat and tie up at the docks that lead up to the bar, there are no bad seats to be found at Shuckers, only good times.
Shuckers is located at 1819 79th Street Causeway, North Bay Village, FL 33141. For more information, visit their official website.
Smith & Wollensky
It would seem impossible to stand out among a lineage of restaurants with a name that has become synonymous with the tradition of the American chop house serving up big slabs of beef that are dry-aged in house with locations from New York to Taipei.
But the Miami Beach location does just that – it is exceptional among the exceptional. Beyond the first-class service that makes you feel like a king or queen on any occasion and the sumptuous steaks and sides cooked up to perfection, Miami Beach’s Smith & Wollensky has one of the most amazing views you’ll ever get to dine with.
Nestled up against Government Cut in South Pointe Park, the restaurant offers views of the ocean, the beach, Downtown and the Port of Miami, and Fisher Island. The view alone is almost too good to be true, but when your waiter arrives bearing crab cakes, creamed spinach, and a 28 oz. bone-in ribeye, you will know beyond a doubt you have arrived in paradise.
Smith & Wollensky is located at 1 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
Watr at the 1 Rooftop
Watr is a testament to that famed old real estate adage – location, location, location. The restaurant sits atop the chic 1 Hotel, 18 stories above Collins Avenue. This perch just next to the shoreline gives you a rarified 360 view from Miami Beach to the Atlantic Ocean.
The view alone would be enough of a reason to pay Watr a visit, but the menu makes the case even stronger. Watr serves up a range of Peruvian Japanese fusion items that utilize local ingredients like Florida grouper ceviche and shrimp anticuchos that will leave your tastebuds as awestruck as the view leaves your eyes.
Watr at the 1 Rooftop is located at 2341 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
The Best Pizza Restaurants in Miami Beach
