A meal along the Intracoastal Waterway is requisite to a visit to South Florida. At least it used to be. While the number of good waterside places to dine has dwindled in Broward County over the years, there are a few in Palm Beach County still worth the visit. Waterway Café in Palm Beach Gardens is one of them. 

Waterway has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating to accommodate weather – or preference. It’s also boat friendly.

Waterway’s food, though standard tourist fare, is varied and solidly good. A Chicken Caesar salad (about $10) was decked out with fresh Romaine lettuce and generous slices of juicy meat topped off with a well-seasoned (read: garlic – as it should be but seldom is anymore) dressing. The grilled Dolphin sandwich (about $12.00), served with a tasty tarter sauce and wedge fries earned good marks.  Daily specials included a meatball sandwich the day we were there and seemed a popular choice among diners.  

A note about the service: Our waiter was terrific but two staffers seating customers seemed grumpy and put out that we asked to be seated on the outdoor deck. First impressions were redeemed by the server. Thanks, Jason. © 2010. Jane Feehan. All rights reserved.
