About Us

Beach Bistro



If you are looking for mouth watering beef tenderloin, succulent roast duck or delicious locally caught grouper, then you have come to the right place.  At the Beach Bistro we offer award-winning food in concert with an unparalleled and inviting atmosphere. Complete with beachfront views, friendly staff and one of the best culinary teams in the country, you are sure to be impressed when you dine with us!

The Bistro's focus from inception was perfection. One of Sean's favorite advisories is - "If you pursue perfection you will achieve a high degree of excellence a good part of the time". The Bistro endeavors to procure the very best American food product and serve it at its best. The Bistro serves only "real fresh grouper, Prime American beef, domestic lamb, and the "the best Smoked Salmon in the free world".




Additional Information

Meet Sean Murphy (Proprietor):  A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Sean graduated from Dalhousie Law School, the “Harvard of the North.” Avoiding a career in law and Canadian winters, he followed his passion for food to New Orleans and learned the restaurant trade under the tutelage of industry renowned Archie Casbarian at the world-famous Arnaud’s.  There, he was introduced to Dr. Murf Klauber of the Colony Beach and Tennis Resort, where he worked before opening the Beach Bistro.

Sean has spread his passion for great food and service to include food writing and consulting. The Bistro’s consulting arm “eat here” has provided services for a variety of “great food” endeavors.   Sean attributes the success of his restaurant group to the strength of his team. “We have the strongest group of managers and chefs anywhere. They understand that our craft requires two major commitments: What we do must be done perfectly and we must be relentless in the pursuit of that perfection.”
