Good location average food

This has the waterfront location and it has an okay menu. Sandwiches, soups, fish dinners etc. Live music a few nights a week. It is fun for tourists or if you don't live near the water. The intracoastal is directly off the back so you can park your boat if there is a slip or drive and park/ Mot... read more

The Banana Boat is a very popular restaurant and is always crowded. It is situated on the intracoastal waterway and the outdoor dining area is nice since it is directly on the waterfront. However, we ate there last Saturday night and the outdoor area was very noisy especially when the live music began. It was hard to even have a... More

I was taken their on Mother's Day - we lucked out and got a good parking spot and were quickly seated at a desired location at a table outside. Our food was delicious and plentiful - I had a seafood omelet and it came with lots of ripe fruit. Altogether, a nice experience.

First impressions are usually the ones that makes or brakes your decision on a new place you visit and after this place was recommended by a friend, we went for the first time on Friday May-29 for lunch with visitors and I was shocked by the rude person they had as the receptionist. Four of us got there around 1PM... More

The restaurant is a great introduction to the West Palm Beach life style. Friendly staff, free valet parking, excellent food. Get a table outside by the water during the day, the toll bridge will elevate every half hour, very cool. Great dishes: stuffed fish ( I think flounder) and key lime pie!

My companion and I both ordered the grilled swordfish special, which was tender and delicious, served over baby asparagus. The presentation was lacking as it was lacking in any plate design and there was no side of rice or potato included nor offered. The service was good. Parking was ok as well. There are indoor and outdoor dining options, although... More

Really good food, not just sea food, at good prices. Located on the Intracoastal, you can sit out on the deck and enjoy drinks and food of all varieties, we do, and we love it, it is one of our favorite "go to s"
