This is my go-to place in Palm Beach Gardens for a cocktail or for a casual lunch or dinner. Tons of patio space to watch the boats sailing the Intracoastal waterway, and you can dock your boat there, too. Indoor area is terrific, too. Food is great - from apps to sandwiches to full meals, service is outstanding, and prices... More

The Waterway cafe is an excellent choice for lunch, brunch, casual weekend dinner. Service is excellent and depending on the waiter can be quite entertaining. Good menu selection and reasonable prices. We've been to this cafe several times, never sat inside, always on the deck!

My swordfish was very good but the rice and vegetables that accompanied it were like fake food...dry and tasteless. My husbands chowder and tuna were very good however. The staff is attentive and friendly. Being on the intercostal makes for a lovely setting...we'll have to try again maybe for dinner.

The Waterway Cafe is a Palm Beach Gardens staple. It has an incredible view of the intracoastal waterway, a dock for boats, and a wide range of inside/outside seating. They have bar areas and more family-friendly seating as well. They have a wide menu of variable quality focusing on Americana surf-and-turf with decent prices. They often offer live music inside...

Nice waterside ambiance, but typical of a lesser-quality fish-eatery. Food was dull, uninspired. Asked for gluten free (they accommodated) but there was no taste to what they prepared. Server was quick and friendly. Won't go back.

Always a good, consistent meal! Service is friendly and food, albeit not very original is always satisfying. View is great and kids can feed the fishies!

Waterway has 3 full service bars with 2 being directly on the intercoastal waterway in Palm Beach Gardens on PGA boulevard. This is the best watering hole to vicariously enjoy the boating scene on the weekends. It also serves food.
