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.

“Nice Waterfront Casual Dining or Drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Located just north of Northlake Blvd on the east side of US 1, Frigates offers a great venue for casual indoor/outdoor dining overlooking one of the canals that leads to the intracoastal waterway.
This is a great place to wind down after work and while the beer/wine and liquor selection is what you would expect, the food was pretty good.
We shared an order of the calamari which was crisp, sweet and the dipping sauce was very tasty. I had the mahi mahi fish tacos which were delicious. All four of our entrees were very good and our waitress was attentive and casual yet professional....We would definitely return.

“Waterfront location with nice bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We enjoyed dinner at Frigates overall. The location is right on the intercostal waterway -not on the beach - but a nice setting with outdoor and indoor seating with a view. The parking is very tight but we used the free Valet service which was very good. We wanted outdoor seating (everybody does here!) but we were told there was a 30 min wait so we took a table indoors. We were actually a bit angry as everybody arriving shortly after us were seated outdoors within about 5 minutes! We ordered the special margaritas ($7, frozen) that they were pushing. It was hard to find a tequila flavor in them. For dinner we ordered the Grouper (excellent) and the Prime Rib (very fatty - not so good). Dinner entrée prices were average for the area. You can also come here and get a burger and apps with drinks. The service was excellent! We will try Frigates again to judge the food properly. We have heard about the Sunday brunch which is a big hit here so we will try that next time.

We are sorry to hear that your experience with our restaurant was not to your standards. I would like to take a moment to point out that valet parking is a complimentary service we offer our customers and that there are dozens of spots available in our lot and also in the adjoining lot located to the North of us that is a less than 1 minute walk to the front doors. Your comment about our hostess was unnecessary and hopefully people reading this will see that is an unfair post.

“Mother's Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

My family decided to treat us to a waterfront brunch buffet for Mother's Day and it was such a nice treat. The good selection was great; seafood, carving station, omelette station and even a yummy lobster bisque soup(with big chunks of lobster!). The view is spectacular and the atmosphere outside is lovely. I would love to go back and look forward to our next visit. Our server Ashley handled our table of 12 with ease! Thanks for a perfect day.
