This little gem is on the intercoastal with boats pulling up alongside to have lunch or dinner. The town is in the back ground. The tiki hut is in the back and the main restaurant is in the front. Always sit out back. We chose the fish and chips. I wouldn't necessarily choose it again because it was dry, but... More

They have a Tiki and on the intercoastal. Very tropical look and feel, I like the island decor. Its well maintained and the staff is very friendly. I had a Grouper and ice tea.

Great place to gather for Happy Hour with group. View is one of best in Palm Beach Gardens. Prices and appetizers good. All about being on the water where you can almost touch boats going by.

This, even under construction renewal, is charming. Great location right on the inter coastal. Wait staff friendly and usually very efficient. Food is above average. Like fish, you MUST have the almond crusted fish. Delicious salad or conch chowder. Best key lime pie. Great value

I've been here several times with friends while visiting the area. The food is always good and has a hint of local color. There are non-seafood options for those that prefer more land locked fare. Their Broken Bridge Cocktail that was created when the neighboring draw bridge broke is quite yummy!

We come here by boat and by car. It's so nice to sit on the patio and watch the boats go by. They have great food and drinks. You can bring your family or date or sit at the bar by yourself and chat while listening to the music.

Sitting at the Intracoastal waterway watching the boats go by with a glass of wine or beer and something nice to eat, is a relaxing start of the weekend or of a nice evening. Certainly there is also inside seating available, but be prepared, it is rather noisy. During Happy Hours most drinks are half price. The food here is... More

We ask for a table near the water, and watch the inland boats cruise by while we eat. If you are an early bird eater, they have great specials! If you eat a little bit later (as we do), they still have good prices on their almost exclusively seafood menu. Honestly, our only disappointment is that they do not keep... More

Each time I travel to Palm Beach I try different places to eat....this was a real treat. Outside was great and the views even better. The menu was amazing and including so many selections...something for everyone. The service was prompt and the food was delicious.....take the time to see the Waterway Café!!

Easy to get seated at 6 pm, with an attentive server Hardley. The Blackened Salmon was very well prepared and had me going back for another visit during our stay just to try some of the other menu options.
