They say when you're looking for good food in an unpretentious atmosphere ask the locals. Most agreed on Driftwood for seafood. It is located on a side street behind the Renaissance hotel in town. No wait even without reservation and seated in a main dining room with the classic chowder-house type decor. Admittedly, it was crowded, but compared to the restaurant strip on Palm Beach this was like being on a desert island. The food was good, the service was excellent and the prices were within range for seafood. The coconut shrimp appetizers were very good, not greasy. The crab cake was good, but very small for the $13. price. The catch of the day (caught by the chef) was wahoo and kingfish. I chose the latter Aruban style, fresh and nicely spiced. Stay away from the shrimp in garlic, not what you might expect, it tasted like lobster sauce at a chinese restaurant - you could have that at home. Dessert was an excellent key lime pie and a "real" strong cup of coffee which hit the spot. Our waiter, Donny, was very attentive and clearly an asset both in terms of his friendliness and professionalism. In all, a good experience. Recommend.
