I love this place because the ingredients are seasonal and local. The meals are bright, colorful, vibrant, and dare I say, works of art! It’s so nice to change up the packaged, frozen, or mass-produced food items that we deal with all the time. This restaurant and all of the others listed on this date night post, are sure to have you saying “that was worth it”, when you leave, and “Let’s go back again.”
18 seminole street Italian Bistro
If you’re looking for a romantic date night spot in downtown Stuart, check out this bistro! It’s so quaint and charming and really feels like historic downtown, so I can’t really think of a better atmosphere for romance. You can find them on instagram or book directly over the phone (772) 463-0059
Let some stress out! This venue’s team will help you unwind on a date by throwing axes, mastering your aim and perfecting your technique. Grab some food and drink while you’re there and let go of some frustration. I can really see this being a fun double-date night idea, too.
Play a game of virtual golf on date night! Hit the golf ball into the field and it will be tracked on the screen to keep score. The views at night are nice and there’s good lighting for a fun, competitive game.
Port Saint Lucie
For a little fun competition, why not go bowling? Bowlero is a super nice, recently renovated bowling alley that also has laser tag and an arcade. Take advantage of their weekly specials on their website if you can go on a week day. Click on Bowlero above to reserve a lane.
spend the day at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park. This is a truly amazing day-date because it’s not your average, sit on the beach activity-but I suggest doing that as well, because this state park is so lovely!
I have an easy itinerary for you- First, leave your beach bags in the car. It’s $6 per vehicle to park at the state park.
Then I would go on the kayak tour, which is guided for 2-2.5 hours. You’ll be in clear kayaks so that you can see the water as you move through mangrove tunnels! Spot and search for manatees and other awesome marine life. Next, head back to your car and grab all that you need for a setup on the beach.
Camp out until you’ve had enough sun and then finally, go hit the scene in downtown Fort Pierce to wrap up the perfect date night.
Causeway Cove Marina 601 Seaway Drive Fort Pierce
Nothing says relaxation like a floating Tiki cruise! Throw in the sunset, and you’ve got yourself a romantic date. Sunset cruises are available everyday of the week, from 11-7. bring your own drinks!
It includes a cooler with ice, a blue tooth sound system, seats for six, and a 360 view. Cruises depart rain or shine. If it is raining, there is a thatched roof to sit under for shelter
This farm-to-table style restaurant has a unique and delightful menu. They are serving up what’s in season, and readily available from CoLab farms.
The food is sophisticated but the environment Is laid-back and it draws in a fun crowd. If there is a question if whether or not you should plan your next date night here, the answer is Abso-lute-ley!
I also recommend trying CoLab Kitchen in Stuart if you want a laid back, family friendly environment for a date-they share the same owners.
Port Saint Lucie
I highly recommend planning your visit when the Dueling Piano show is going on! This is such a great, free show, if you’re looking for things to do in Port Saint Lucie. You’re almost guaranteed something fun is happening with this brewery’s fun schedule at any given time.
They’ve got bingo, live music, tons of specials, and a lunch club. Not to mention, the food is fantastic!
Think pretzels, breakfast burritos on Sundays, burgers, nachos, funnel fries and so much more. Eat and drink to your hearts content in this fun environment. The vibe here is just happy, so beware-you may make some new friends!
Go to a Farmers Market!
Spend a fun-day date on the Treasure Coast at a farmers market! This is a very affordable idea! There’s farmers markets in Hobe Sound (pictured below) Stuart, Fort Pierce, Vero, and Jensen! Here is my guide to several Farmers Markets on the Treasure Coast. Walk around while you snack, drink, and shop!
I love our farmers markets-some of the best in the state!
I’d give a zillion stars for this dinner experience in Martin County. They are open to the public for dining, or for more of an exclusive date, you can book a wine dinner.
You’ll be joining a group of people that love to wine and dine! Some of them are in the wine club and some are just lovers of food and wine who purchased their ticket-like us! And I’m so glad we did.
The wine dinners at the Grove are amazing 5-course pairings that are intimate and entertaining with trivia, raffles, and some of the best food I’ve had in this area. Read my full post on the Grove Cucina and Wine
Book your wine experience ahead of time-they sell out.
Downtown Fort Pierce
Award winning, dynamite restaurant in Fort Pierce that is sure to please. With a modern design, the ambience here exudes good times, with a little bit of romance. The overall dining experience is incredible and sophisticated.

This award-winning American-style restaurant with southern roots is a wonderful date night experience. The charcuterie board is a perfect appetizer to pair with some wine while you sit on their patio and watch the liveliness of downtown Stuart.

Kyle G’s Oyster Bar
Port Saint Lucie
The same good ole’ Kyle G has another location for a great date night in Port Saint Lucie. This is more of a happy hour and social bar. They’ve got specials Monday through Friday. So if you’re looking for an affordable place, they offer 50% off wine two nights a week, with other specials including $2 oysters on Mondays. Add this one to your list of budget-friendly date nights.
This is one of our favorite places to hang out after enjoying dinner in the heart of downtown Stuart. It’s within walking distance to the Gafford, or Spritz City Bistro. Go after dinner and grab a seat along the wall, because the center is for bustin’ moves! Lush stays open until 2 am on the weekends and 1am on the weeknights-and it’s a heck of a good time!
They have an extensive bar menu, and even serve charcuterie boards. Whether you go when a DJ is spinning or a jam-band is jamming, you’re going to feel forever young- part of the reason I’ve added it to the Ultimate Treasure Coast Date Night Guide-Not that we’re old 😉
Port Saint Lucie
We’re proud to be home to the Mets spring training team! Catching a baseball game will forever be a great date night idea- here you can watch the future big-league Met players in this awesome ballpark. This is a super affordable date night option with tickets starting at $3
Port Saint Lucie
I love this place! It’s the perfect idea to break up a boring week. Order a bucket of beer to take on the course with you.You can mobile order food and drinks to be delivered to the course while you golf, too. There is a restaurant and full bar just upstairs overlooking the course and playground.
The menu features hand-helds, salads, small bites, and amazing wings! They even have an ice cream bar inside with 28 different flavors. Play corn-hole and Jenga in the passthrough. With the position of this venue, you’ll be able to catch Florida’s beautiful sun setting, for a nice view!

Clearly God made beer because he wanted us to be happy. And you can’t be unhappy whilst kicking back on a date night in Fort Pierce. Choose between 17 delicious lagers, beers, ciders and ales on tap. I don’t know who decided that beer and pizza are the perfect pair, but thank you.

These are waffle fries with baked chicken, bacon, mozarella, and jalapeños drizzled with house-made, sweet-chili garlic sauce. Join in on some drinking games or board games, too! Dates should always be THIS fun.
This is an interesting concept on painting! We had so much fun here. You splatter paint onto your canvas and create your own art-good for any artistic skill. Enjoy the swanky blue pool table, and beer and wine while you get creative. I’m chalking this venue up to a great date night on the Treasure Coast for originality.
I told you this list would be more than just your average dinner and a movie, right?! This is a next-level date idea, but skydiving is an unforgettable experience and needed to be added the Ultimate Treasure Coast Date Night Guide for the adrenaline lovers out there!
This is a great date for the couple who wants to enjoy a night of craft cocktails and share some small plates and tapas of delicious American-style cuisine. Sit outside and people-watch the shoppers walking by or unwind in a lively indoor setting.
Why did Square Grouper make the list for date nights in Fort Pierce? 1. Because it’s awesome, and 2. No kids allowed!

I said you’d find ideas that are not your typical dinner and a movie, so here you go! You can hop on board the $10 cruise from two locations in Stuart. They are every hour on the hour from the recently opened in 2023
Waterfront Restaurant-131 SW Flagler Ave
and every hour on the half hour from the TideHouse Restaurant-915 Flagler Ave.
I suggest choosing one of these awesome restaurants with amazing views, and then ending the night on a cruise down the ocean with other couples!
Never underestimate the relaxation of a stay-cation! There’s no big planning, big expense, or long travel. It’s just local fun but with alll the relaxing vibes and change of scenery- because sometimes that’s all we need! I suggest checking out Waldo’s historic restaurant- It’s on the ocean and it’s poolside with live music. You’ll get total Jimmy Buffet vibes. But my ultimate suggestion, is to grab a hotel at the resort here! Save some money buy ditching the room with an oceanfront view, and spend that on having a good time at the pool the next day.
Walk the Jetty
This is completely free to do, and so nice. It’s 1200 feet long, so if you’re counting steps, it’s a win. The jetty, or otherwise known as a pier, is a long paved path to walk alongside the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll see fisherman, as this is a great spot to catch some fish, and you’ll see a spectacular sunrise-one of the best! I suggest grabbing a bite at one of the many local places to drink and eat nearby, and then grabbing an ice cream for your stroll on the jetty. Our fave is Cream Republic. They even have boozy ice cream. Cheers!
Vine and Barley: sip and play games
Port Saint Lucie
Have you ever tried wine on tap? The beauty of this method is, samples! This craft beer and wine lounge in Port Saint Lucie is a game changer!

Right next door is a cigar shop, if you fancy a stogie to pair with your libations!
