Restaurants in Palm Beach Area

For a casual night out, try to score a reservation at this insanely popular spot. Order your banana cream pie when you sit down; the locals are addicted to it.

Located right on the water on the barrier Hutchinson Island just north in Fort Pierce, the sprawling bi-level nautical restaurant has killer views of the ocean and a fish-heavy menu (try the coconut shrimp).

The ultra chichi spot is ideal for people watching. Every woman is freshly coiffed in the style known locally as the "Palm Beach Helmet". If that doesn't entertain, the vegetable soup and shiitake salads are standouts.

EAT Check out the vintage Driftwood Resort on the waterfront by dining at its restaurant, known for family-friendly classics like battered fish baskets and quesadillas for $10 or less.

Share the yellowtail snapper for two, followed by a torta mattina or a torta caprese. Save your appetite for the house-made dessert. As you leave, remember to generously tip the blond valet who boldly indicates available parking spaces to new arrivals with the aid of a large flashlight.

Try the fried chicken breakfast at the diner-style restaurant.

Go Tex-Mex with homemade flour tortillas and nachos drenched in salsa.

This no-nonsense waterfront joint dishes up fresh seafood.
