Michael R. McCarty’s sits at a corner in the Royal Poinciana Plaza in this island town and draws the old Palm Beach crowd. It’s a great place to lunch outdoors and watch passengers emerge from a parade of  Mercedes-Benzes (with a Bentley or two) eager to be seen and to see who’s in town.

Not that it matters to these patrons, but the food is reasonably-priced while being comfortably good. Macaroni and cheese (cheddar, Parmesan and Gruyere), meat loaf, and chicken hash join traditional fare of USDA Prime steaks, and fresh seafood on the menu. McCarty's also does a marvelous job with cheese souffl├ęs (best to call ahead for this treat.) The consensus is that Michael R. McCarty’s is a fun place, especially at night, when drinks at the bar are half price (between 4 and 6 p.m.) The tales proffered by local elites could be as good as the bar menu and appetizers – or the entire dinner.
