What a special place! You must visit this restaurant at least once in your lifetime. The service was impeccable, the dinner was excellent, the view and ambiance was incredible!! Our waitress (can't remember he name, an Estonian lady) deserves special mention for her attention to detail and professionalism. The chef came out as well! We will definitely be coming here...

We had a wonderful beachfront meal to celebrate our anniversary. The beach was almost too beautiful to take in. We saw so much wildlife, from nurse sharks in the bay to cranes and seabirds, pelicans and crabs along the beach. The sunset was spectacular and well worth the flight across the country. The food was delightful, the ceviche was the... More

6 months ago for a special celebration, little did we know that our reservation for the evening at Harbor Point was overbooked, AND as we sat at the bar, we were notified that we could not have our private table. We were quite put off that the reservationist would be that untrained as to make such a big mistake. Now,... More

I was kindly invited by a friend to go dinner at the dining room at Little Palm Island this summer. I was delightfully surprised by the whole experience. From the boat ride, to the deer walking around the island, to the beautiful view and breathtaking sunset, the torches, the fire pits around the island. It is such a beautiful place.... More

Had a great night until the boat ride home. We asked our waiter to let us know when we had to leave to make the last boat. No problem. We waited on the dock taking pictures until we saw the boat speed away without us. We got the manager immediately to no avail. The manager called the boat, but the... More

The waiters, bartenders, and Chef are all open to customizing your food as you like. Ingredients were fresh and service was good. Views were gorgeous. Overall very happy. Though, as this is the only dining option on the island, expect high prices. Live music every night and for Sunday brunch, which was great!

I am hard on two things... restaurants and movies. Rarely find one with little to no flaws, while this was an exception. The Little Palm Island Dining Room was hands down one of the best meals we've had in a very long time. This was our second visit to LPI, while the first was about 3 years ago. I heard... More

The food and service is beyond fantastic!! The menu changes constantly, but you simply can't go wrong with the fish. If you sit outside and it is a still night, be prepared for the onslaught of "no-see-ums!" The complementary bug wipes they give you is like a fine wine to these insects. So no wind means STAY INSIDE!!
