“This chain restaurant doesn't let you down”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

I know it's a chain, but I ahve eaten at 5 or 6 Palms all over the country and every time I can't wait to go back. I am certain I'm getting a great meal, especially steak. Their salads are to die for especially the decadent blue cheese wedge salad. The filets, outstanding and service impeccible. Although there are alot of great local restaurants, you are guaranteed a great meal at The Palm. It's always a safe bet, enjoy!!

“great time!!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Food is very good, service very good, waiters have a great attitude -- I love to spar with them over all sorts of trivial things & their combacks are great

“Made our anniversary special!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Our server, John, went out of his way to make our dinner a special event. He offered us complimentary champagne, but when we told him we didn't care for it, offered us dessert instead. The food was plentiful and delicious and the service was impeccable. It's not what I'd consider a quiet, romantic spot, but it was still a wonderful place for us to celebrate.

“Expensive "Institution"”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

The Palm is an "institution" -- a must do-for the local pols and celebs, and many of their photos and caricatures decorate the walls (and website). My husband and I were treated to dinner here by generous friends who live in the area and who had always wanted to go.

The food was superb, but the atmosphere was very noisy, the service was average, and the prices are pretty outrageous. We're talking $45 steaks plus $16 per side dish, so I didn't even look at dessert choices, and I shudder to think of the price of the drinks! In fairness, the side dishes are designed to share, and all four of us had a generous portion of each of the two we ordered and neither was completely finished.

So, if you plan for the cost, you want to say you've been, and you look forward to possibly seeing someone famous, then go for it. Otherwise, there are plenty of choices for an excellent meal at a more reasonable price.
