Popular eatery right on the water

I came here to meet up with a business colleague having been once before socially. It was raining but we were still able to sit on the veranda and take in the waterside atmosphere. We sat at the Tikki bar initially and enjoyed some happy hour drinks before we sat down and had an early evening bite... read more

This is a nice restaurant with water views. It's a large restaurant with plenty of room for large groups. There is also a waterfront tiki bar. I have had a variety of different meals here, all have been good, some favorites are the fresh seafood, one in our party had the steak sandwich which they reported to be very tender... More

I've gone to Waterway Cafe several times, as it is pretty close to my workplace and a great place to gather after work for drinks and a bite to eat. We always order the fish dip and conch fritters for appetizers which are always a hit for everyone. The Happy Hour prices make it economical and lets us sometimes stay... More

We've dined in the Waterway Café on several occasions. Each time the food was good, the prices reasonable, and the service responsive. What really makes the place interesting is that you can drive there in your car OR your boat. Since the Café is located on the Intracoastal waterway, there is a fair bit of current along the boat docks.... More

The restaurant is located on the intracoastal waterway next to the bridge over PGA boulevard. Many tables are open air and they have a round, tiki hut type bar out into the water. They do have tables away from the water that are air-conditioned and more comfortable during hot times of the day. The sun sets behind you so good... More

We asked around for something local and fun for dinner. Nothing too expensive. This was the winner. Felt a bit like a 1990's lounge inside but the tables near the water were great. Our seafood entrees were both great. The blackening seasoning was just right. Not flashy but nice.

Had not been here in three or four years and was really disappointed. Our server seemed rushed and we were seated between two large parties with barely enough room to get out of our chairs. The food was just average, Chardonnay served warm. Sunday night was advertised as reggae night but the band that played LOUDLY may have been reggae... More

Our friends like this place and always suggest it, but we find the food at dinner to be overpriced and mediocre. It is better to go for the twilight dinner. I wish I could give it a better review, but I have to be honestly there are so many better places in the area.

We came here for lunch, and back the next day for dinner while vacationing in nearby singer island. The outdoor views are lovely for a nice lunch, great patio with bar. For dinner we are indoors and our group of ten was well attended to. The grouper with mango sauce was amazing! As well as the calamari. That night they... More

On Our 3 night stay on Singer Island/Palm Beach Shores Waterway Cafe in Palm Beach Gardens wasn't necessarily our favorite meal, but it was still good. They gave us a table with a nice view of the water way located behind their building. I ordered fish and chips and my husband ordered the Salmon. Both fish dishes were very fresh... More
