“Cute little place; fabulous location; food was very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

You wouldn't find this place unless you were looking for it (or unless you were walking along the beach and wondered if it was a restaurant or someone having a "patio party"). But we're glad we found it. Very small--only about 6-8 tables inside and a bar. Outdoor seating would have been fantastic, because you're basically right on the beach. Unfortunately, it was raining the night that we visited, so we were inside. Host (the owner, I presume) was appropriately attentive (not overbearing), and waitress was friendly and prompt. Food was quite good. I had a simple cheeseburger--nothing to philosophize about there. It was nicely done, just as I ordered. My wife had a salad special: portabella mushroom, mozzarella, and tomato with balsamic. She enjoyed it. We would go back--especially on a nice day or evening when we could sit outside!

“great food , incredible location!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

this is the grille connected with the Suntower hotel. It is right on the sand--incredible view--really nice food--good flatbreads, great burgers and salads, and HUGE hotdog--fun--it is one of the nicest places to eat in Ft.Lauderdale--very reasonable prices--takes a while for the food, but you dont mind because it is so beautiful there. Good crisp fries adn their Portuguese chips are great homemade potato chips with ranch dip-- dont mimss this--on a sunny day, it can'tb e beat--if it'swindy take a jacket as you are right on the beach.

“Great Food on the Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Reasonably priced, Great quality & presentation was eye catching! No paper plates here!! The service was equally as impressive. Stop at the Sun Tower Hotel and Suites and enjoy their on-site grille! Happy Hours available Monday through Friday

“Slow service but awesome staff and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

It's true when they say things are slower in Florida. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Definitely a hot spot which was always busy due to the beachfront location. Took a while to get and pay the bill and also to receive our food/drinks. I recommend trying this place out!

My wife and I were on our way to the Cruise Port and were running a bit ahead of schedule so we decided to first have lunch. What a find.
A small place located withing a small hotel.
Great outside seating with a view of the beach.
Fun staff and good service.
