If anything, birthday dinners should be FUN. The restaurants on this list were selected because they are all A) Good for groups B) serve food that isn’t just delicious but special, and C) have a stand-out atmosphere. Listed from the north end of Brevard county to the south, we recommend heading to any of these spots to ring in your next bday:
Brix Project (Titusville)
Twists on classic American fare in a hip, social atmosphere. It’s a foodie’s paradise with ever-changing specials and fun creations.
4th Street Fillin Station (Cocoa Beach)
Of course the food is good or else it wouldn’t make the list, but the stand-out here is the amazing outdoor space that’s been masterfully landscaped: grassy turf for spreading out on the lawn, giant jenga blocks, water features, string lights… a celebratory atmosphere great for groups.
The Fat Snook/Crush XI (Cocoa Beach, Downtown Melbourne)
These sister restaurants have different locations and different menus, but the impeccable service and atmosphere at each stand out against the rest. You’ll be treated like a VIP on your special day.
28 North (Viera)
Bring your crew here to celebrate with craft food and cocktails at this hip space in the Avenues of Viera. It’s a foodie experience where you’ll feel like you’re in a big-city restaurant without the traffic and crowds.
Ember & Oak (Downtown Melbourne)
A steakhouse on steroids. The menu is built for sharing, so it’s great for groups who like to try a variety of menu items. Great outdoor patio courtyard in the heart of historic downtown Melbourne.
Yellow Dog Cafe (Malabar)
Some of the best waterfront views in Brevard County, and has its own pier for enjoying the views as you wait for your meal. This spot is the most formal on the list; you’ll be doted on hand and foot and leave completely stuffed.
Boom. Birthday in style at one of these local spots and let us know what you think over on the gram @spacecoastfoodies
