Beach Eating: Dine Waterside like a Local in Palm Beach

If you’re in the Palm Beach/West Palm Beach area, chances are you’re a fan of the beach in some regard. Whether you’re the type that enjoys having your feet in the sand or you’re the type that would rather admire the beauty from afar in an air conditioned setting, there’s a beach-side restaurant for you. For those that can’t get enough of the Florida sunshine and want a delicious meal without having to pack up the whole beach setup, Benny’s on the Beach at the Lake Worth Pier is an excellent choice. The breakfast starts early so the sunrise lovers can make a morning of it and leads into savory seafood options with creative cocktails. The frozen concoctions are a nice cool-down treat and appropriate year-round. 

Travel a little further north for a dinner made with the local catch at The Seafood Bar at the Breakers. The Breakers is about as Palm Beach as one can get and so it’s no wonder they’ve taken advantage of their prime real estate with an ocean view bar. Pull up a chair at the aquarium bar and enjoy an array of seafood options for either lunch or dinner. When it comes to beachfront dining, there is an option for every style so read below  to see the top 10 in the area.
