“Best beach restaurant in Palm Beach County”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Aside from oddities such as cash only and feeding antiquated meters for parking, this restaurant and bar are the best on the beach. It appears that a lot of people have favorites here. I am no different. I order the Beef/Chicken Bruchetta religiously. As the restaurant has a Greek influence, the Greek salad, pita and hummus that comes with it are perfect for me. That being said, everything on this menu is quality and I have tried many. The full bar overlooking the beach is truly unique and rarely crowded. There is nothing else like it around and the staff is great. It is not open late in the day and is really a high quality casual restaurant. For those not from here, the concrete block area that is the kitchen used to be the "snack bar" for Lantana Beach when I was a kid, serving up such specials as hotdog and soft serve ice cream.

“Meh”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I suppose people like the excellent location right on the beach, as it is popular. The food is OK but it was served cold and was badly plated. Chicken fingers were horribly overcooked. Server was not pleasant and after waiting 35 minutes to be seated and getting cold waffles, neither was I.
Prices are very high for a mediocre brunch place. John G’s is a much better bet.

“Great Food!!! Awesome Location!!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch with family and friends. The food was so good and fresh. The ocean breeze and sounds put you at ease. An overall great place. Would go back again and again. Get there 30 minutes before you get hungry because there is always a wait. Bring quarters for the parking meters and towels in case the kids run in the ocean.

“Thanksgiving Dinner”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

I have been to the Dune Deck café numerous times but this past Thanksgiving was a let down. I know this is a very casual place but the hostess should wear something besides workout clothes. Usually the food is good but I was very disappointed with the meal. I hope it was just a busy and off day.
