With a limited number of eats around town, Hillsboro Beach may seem like a bleak choice for a dining destination on the outside looking in-- yet locals and tourists in the know will prove you wrong!

Spanning just three miles in length and 900 feet in width is the charming town of Hillsboro Beach, known by many as "Florida's Magnificent Mile." 

The small upscale Broward County beach community is beautifully situated on a narrow peninsula between the shimmering Intracoastal Waterway and the clear blue Atlantic Ocean

It can be accessed through a bridge, A1A, the only main road in Hillsboro Beach, more commonly known as the Hillsboro Mile or Millionaire's Mile.

And thanks to the town's neighboring cities, particularly Deerfield Beach, where most of the nearest restaurants are, peeps looking for a place to chill and dine won't feel an ounce of hunger while they're here!

Think picturesque views, sunset backdrops, delicious cuisines, and seaside dining-- all these await you around Hillsboro Beach.

And I can't wait for you to try them all!

Here are the Top 5 Eats to try while you're here. (in no particular order)

Cap's Place

2765 NE 28th Ct, Lighthouse Point, FL 33064

✅ Takeout - ✅ Dine-in - ✅ Outdoor Dining

Recognized as a national landmark and a famous "attraction" in Hillsboro Beach, Cap's is Broward County's oldest restaurant, serving fresh native seafood, hearts of palm salad, succulent steaks, chops, and chicken for over 91 years!

With roots as a 1920s casino and rum-running speakeasy, it sits on an island off Lighthouse Point and can only be reached by a Cap's motor launch. 

But let me tell you, the trip to the secluded coastal pine and pecky cypress landmark is a must for anyone visiting South Florida and the Gold Coast-- whether you're looking for good food or to enjoy the great views! 

Cap's extensive selection of fish and shellfish dishes offers the best in casual waterfront dining. 

We're talking about the freshest local dolphin, wahoo, cobia, snapper, pompano, lobster, and stone crab, varying with the catch. 

Indeed, Cap's is always cooking something special to satisfy your palates! 

So, take that boat to South Florida's premier waterfront restaurant - Cap's Place. 

You won't regret it!
