Best Service

Palm Beach Grill

There’s a reason a table at the Palm Beach Grill is still one of the toughest to score on Palm Beach. Loyal customers reserve one month in advance. The service here is superb. It’s the factor that keeps the place buzzing, from bar to dining room.

By Palm Beach standards, this is not the swankiest spot in town, and the décor is not the most memorable. But the place sweeps you up with confidence and sees to it that you are served well. Outstanding service is the element that enhances an already excellent dining experience. Although the menu here teeters on basic – it is a Hillstone chain restaurant, after all – the dishes are well executed and presented with polish and pride. 

Palm Beach Grill: 340 Royal Poinciana Way, #336, Palm Beach; 561-835-1077. (Click on the address to open location in Google Maps)
