We have dined many times at the Foster's Grille in West Palm Beach and found the food to be very good. I wish I could say the same for our experience here. We ordered a burger with fries and I ordered a side salad. My salad was limp and there was slimy lettuce in the bottomunfortunately uneatable. We were expecting the burger to be as good as we had previously had on the other coast, we were disappointed in it also. It was low quality and just didn't taste good. We have not been back and will not return to this particular Foster's Grille.

On first visit we weren't sure what to do. Each person needs an individual order form, from which one marks one's selections, then hands it in at the register and pays. They bring the order out. Once you *know* that, it's fine.

Food's hearty enough for a burger place. Definitely better than the McGenerics. A modest selection of alcohol. We had no complaints, but also nothing to get excited over—well, alright props for the hand-cut fries. Service is adequate. Decent prices.

This location has lots of mostly-sports fixtures and decor, trying to mix modern and nostalgia/reclaimed. That doesn't really work aesthetically. The poured-resin-covered tables show obviously fake business cards (with "555" phone numbers) that just seems silly. None of these cosmetic issues affects the quality of the food, of course.

Not quite worth going out of the way for, but give it a try if it's convenient.

Been here many times, finally thought I would write a review.

At first glance, the prices may seem a bit high, but you get fries and a drink included in the price. You CAN ask for the sandwich only to save a few bucks, but mention it to the hostess who greets you with pencil and paper IMMEDIATELY as you enter.

Good place for kids...BTW, try the wings, they are surprisingly good if you are not in the mood for a burger, Yes, the wings are GREAT, and for an extra treat, ask them to cook the wings longer than normal. They beat Hooters and other places hands down, with LESS BREADING!

Check them out on Wednesday nights for all the older cars that come to show themselves off.

All in all, visit here once, and you WILL want to return!

It's hard to imagine you will find a better char grilled burger and fresher hand cut fries. You order the burger with whatever topping you want at the counter. A large portion of delicious hot fries and a drink will be brought to your table with the burger.

I went here with my family a few days ago. Like other reviewers mentioned, the ordering is strange. You have to fill out a piece of paper for each person in your party. Being a family of five, filling out five sheets of paper with my order was time consuming and similar to taking the SATs. The food was good. I had a buffalo chicken sandwich with onion rings. The service was good, the staff was very friendly. Word of advice, try to bypass the ordering system and make them fill out the forms, will save you some time and aggravation.
