Description: The Frigate bird is legendary to sport fishermen and it’s presence is an indicator to a bountiful catch, good times and success. After a long day, sea wary sportsmen return to their favorite speakeasy to enjoy refreshing beverages, great food, music and laughter while recounting their days adventure. Many of these speakeasies became legendary in their own right. Frigate’s Waterfront Bar & Grill is one of those gathering places, located on the water in beautiful North Palm Beach.Nestled beneath tropical palms, balmy breeze and island music. You can come by land or come by sea and watch your favorite sporting event on one of our 22 Flat Screen TV’s, including the massive 80 inches High Definition TV at the Tiki Bar just feet away from the seawall. Enjoy our tropical bistro featuring fresh seafood, steakhouse favorites and the best drinks and libations anywhere around, delivered by our friendly knowledgeable staff.

“Just a plain bar”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

The place is boring, the staff is uninterested and the drinks aren't good. With its fantastic location this joint has potential, but it simply lacks character and it will probably never have it.

“Great happy hour, food, and location”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Frigates is located on the water with plenty of sitting inside and
out. The drinks and food are delicious. There was music outside when we were there.

“Bad design bad smells”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Only been their twice. Will never go back
parking is poor. Then when you pull up to the entrance you walk thru the garbage juices that have leaked from the tras Bags that they drag thru the parking lot. Oh yes it does smell. Now inside its like being in a sound tunnel. Very loud. And does smell like dead fish and cookin g oil. Outside does have its issues as well not very well laid out somebody is going to take a bad fall. The outside bar keep all their wine sitting in the hot sun. Not even good for cheap wine beer is not very cold either bottle or tap. The whole place is just not laid out very well or designed well. You can tell whoever was the architect never did a restaurant before. The location really had potential.

“frigate gate!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

A unique atmosphere and seating in the main dining room, more single, mingling than family. A little loud inside so we headed out back to the outside bar. Everything looked great, and the live music was nice, not too loud. Our waiter, Nick was outstanding! never rushed us, never pushy, had knowledge of the menu. He didn't make us wait when we first sat down. It never fails when you go to a restaurant with self seating...... you wait and wait and wait until somebody decides to help you. He was proactive, Great Job! The food was very, enjoyable; my salad was excellent, and the tuna app was delicious, maybe just a tad over priced though. My wife and myself had an enjoyable experience and will return with friends. I think parking is an issue because there was no spot available and the place was not full.... at all! As with any new place it takes a month or two to work out the kinks, and I give them the benefit of the doubt. Their standards will decide their fate, if high they will do great!
