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.

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

This is a lovely large restaurant with a wonderful view. We had aPork Chop , which one thought was chewy but tasty, I had Chicken Piccata, which was very tasty, and someone had Jumbalaya, which they loved. Very large portions. Salads also were plentiful. The dessert I had was Key Lime Pie-very heavy and sweet, but deliecious.

Located close to the sea channel shoreline. Is a nice place with live music (inside) and a more relaxed, windy outdoor ambient. Diligent service and good food generously served. My recommendation the Gumbo with shrimps, fish and spice sausage over black rice... But stay away from the lemonade. ... artificial snd disgusting

I am new to the area (from SoCal) so am slowly checking out the eating establishments. Usually, I check out a place on this site or Yelp....but last Saturday on a whim, I saw this place and took a chance. As I walked towards the restaurant, I asked a couple as they were coming out how the food was. They... More

This is the second time we have come here and it was as good as the first time. This time instead of dinner we stopped here for lunch and the food, the view and the service was outstanding. My wife had the Mahi Caesar Salad and I had the seared Tuna. Both were absolutely wonderful. What made our experience even... More

I've been here for lunch a few times now, and the real draw is the location on the intracoastal. There are several outside seating areas -- some covered for shade, and some in the sun. Take your pick. Of course, the entire inside of the cafe is air conditioned and cool, but if you're going to dine at a place... More

The location right on the inter coastal couldn't be better. Great Caesar salad and we had swordfish and blackened grouper. Great flavor but thought the portions a wee bit small but that could be because so great tasting, we wanted more. Nice place!
