Tiger Woods Opens the Woods, Classiest Sports Bar Ever, in Jupiter

Tiger Woods' new restaurant and sports bar, the Woods Jupiter, opened this week and it could be the classiest-looking sports bar ever.

The restaurant, located in Harbourside Place, a ten-acre waterfront multi-use project that includes a hotel, marina, and amphitheater, is called a sports bar and dinner club, befitting the upscale neighborhood it resides in.

The restaurant decor is sleek and modern and features several dining options. The bar, for example, is brightly lit and features multiple television screens for watching games.

There's also a main dining room that features a wall of wine and several private booths.  A private dining room is available for meetings and parties, seating up to ten guests, and a back area can host parties of up to 50 people. The restaurant also features an indoor/outdoor lounge.

Of course, reminders that you're in Tiger Woods' restaurant are all around in the form of oversized pictures of the golf pro in action. All dining areas also feature television screens, so you won't miss any of the exciting action of, say, the PGA Championship. 

As for the food? So far, the restaurant doesn't have a website, and a news release describes the cuisine as "new American, which consists of great American dishes that are uniquely modified and developed for patron enjoyment." Digging a little deeper, early Yelp reviews mention a rib eye, bison burgers, Southwestern wraps, tuna crudo, and fish tacos, with most people liking the food and the service.

Tiger Woods himself is helping get the word out, posting a sneak preview of the restaurant on his Facebook page.

The golfer and Jupiter resident says Harbourside is the perfect location for his sports and dining club. "It's exciting that the Woods Jupiter is now open, and I look forward to enjoying my restaurant as much as I hope everyone will. I envision a place where people can meet friends, watch sports on TV, and enjoy a great meal. I wanted to build it locally where I live and where it could help support my community."

Sounds like Tiger sightings might take place on a regular basis.

The Woods Jupiter is open for dinner only, from 4 to 11 p.m., through September 11. Starting September, 12, the restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. The Woods will be closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.
