As the gateway between Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast, Hobe Sound is close to many shopping centers. Specifically, Hobe Sound is close to two major malls: Treasure Coast Square Mall in Jensen Beach and The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. Don’t forget to nab some deals at the Palm Beach Outlets in West Palm Beach. Neighboring areas also offer unique shopping. Just a short drive away in downtown Stuart and Jensen Beach, visitors can explore locally owned boutiques and galleries unique to this area.

Grab a bite
Whatever your dining pleasure, area restaurants can satisfy almost any appetite. Options include fine dining and fresh-catch fish selections, as well as more casual staples.
Stop by Scooter’s Fun Foods & Spirits for its famous wings and friendly service. Another restaurant offering a famous menu item is Courtney’s Stuffed Burgers; the only stuffed burger on the Treasure Coast. Pop into Hobe Sound Deli for handmade buns, fresh sandwich bread, or its well-known garlic and herb wrap. Or if you’re in the mood for something more tropical, check out the tiki bar at Pirate’s Cove Resort & Marina in Stuart.

One of Hobe Sound’s more famous eateries is Harry and the Natives. Owned by the MacArthur family since 1952, Harry and the Natives is a local institution. Harry grew up in the restaurant, helping his parents from a young age. In 1989, he took over as owner and has been feeding Hobe Sound locals and guests ever since. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday. The quirky restaurant even offers a tongue-in-cheek option for Mondays: “If we’re closed, just shove your money under the door.”
