Great location, good value

One of the few water views left. TheTiki areas outside are the best for watching the boats go by and enjoy the south Florida weather.

Waterway Cafe is what you may call an 'institution' in Palm Beach Gardens. Its location cannot be beat, as it is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway (hence the name). It's a nice spot to take out of state visitors, so they can experience the beauty of the Palm Beaches while sipping a cocktail. On several occasions, I and my party... More

Al, I have travelled throughout several countries and the way people are taken care of (for example in Mexican high end restaurants and resorts at Los Cabos, Riviera Maya attention is breathtaking). I had never received a decent type of care within the US (good food or nice architecthure but inadequate attention and service). Waterway has SURPRISED me. This is... More

Outdoor dining on the Introcoastal and now Tiki huts on the water. Food is just ok.....nothing special but the location is great. Can also dock your boat while eating.....

Decided to visit for late Sunday lunch. Wings were cold, salad was brown and burger very undercooked. Showed server and she looked at me with a blank stare. Paid for 2 water downed iced teas and left. Where was the manager?

Beautiful location right on the water, some type of boat going by every few minutes which is nice to watch. Had the lunch special of Cajun fish fingers. Just okay as they were a bit over fried but fish was delish! Key lime pie is the best I've ever had! I recommend this location as the atmosphere is beautiful!

Can be a fun place to visit. Sitting out by the water with a cocktail, enjoying the view, watching the boats go by, somehow, you don't mind the mediocre food.
