Went for lunch with many friends. All had different meals from their always great Cobb and other Salad to Fish and Chips to Great Gazpacho, to wonderful sandwiches. All were done well.

There a variety of dishes (meat and seafood) to satisfy almost any taste. The service staff does an excellent job both with recommendations and service.

I have to say we went 3 years ago and i loved my meal. This year my meal was just generic. Everything on my plate tasted the same. Not much flavor. Very expensive for what we had.

We used the online reservation system and asked for table by the window to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived it seemed the whole staff had been informed of our special event and took time to come and congratulate us. Our server was awesome and make excellent recommendations. The food was superb. Highly recommend and will be back again.

We wanted to have a nice seafood lunch on the ocean, so decided to come here. BIG MISTAKE! Out of all the lovely restaurants on Palm Beach, we definitely chose wrong. There were only 2 other tables at the time, which were just about finished with their meals, but for some reason it took FOREVER to get a salad and... More
