Best Places to Indulge in Grub from the Sea
Coming to vacation in Palm Beach/West Palm Beach, you undoubtedly know the ocean rests due east. The bounty the great sea provides ends up on plates in a vast number of restaurants all across the coast. Without doing your due diligence, you could end up at a ho-hum place that serves "okay" seafood - but is that really what you want when you are on vacation?
Seafood joints come in all shapes and sizes. Some are dives. Others are nestled inside world class resorts. The key to picking a place comes down to two main selectors; quality and atmosphere.
