A favorite local tropical-themed seafood restaurant has made a big “up”-grade, creating room for even more guests looking to dine on the water.

Mulligan’s Beach House in Jensen Beach recently expanded to include a second-story patio, complete with bar seating and a dining area. Construction on the second floor wrapped on March 15.

“Mulligan’s was there for 15 years, so we decided it was time for an upgrade,” Mulligan’s CEO George Hart said.

The expansion will seat nearly 100 customers and includes almost 30 bar stools. Restrooms and an elevator were also added to accommodate guests. Hart said a fire pit is also in the works.

“It’s a well done, very nice patio where anyone would be proud to bring their guests from out of town or dine there with their family and friends,” he said.

Jensen Beach is not the only Mulligan's location to receive a recent facelift, however.

To accommodate an influx of guests, offer waterfront dining and expand parking availability, Mulligan’s in Stuart made the move to its new location on the St. Lucie River in late December, replacing Spoto’s Oyster Bar. Hart said sales have nearly doubled since the move.

And Mulligan's expansion plans won't stop there. Hart hopes to take his beach-themed brainchild to additional coastal cities like Fort Pierce and Melbourne, while still catering to the locals who made it all possible.

“We’re more of a local place. We cater to the people that live here, which I think is a very necessary thing when it comes to places that have a lot of out-of-state visitors,” Hart said.
