Dining In at a Florida Resort

The first year we stayed at Palm Beach Shores Resort, I was unhappy with the valet parking which had mandatory daily charges whether we used it or nor and, also, the lack of a suitable restaurant on the premises. Still, we returned for another year and then another. This year marked our 10th stay at the resort which we now love.

Over the years, the beautiful ocean side setting on Singer Island has remained lovely and inviting. Now there is an excellent restaurant, The Islander Grill and Tiki Bar, inside the resort complex. We love the menu specials each evening which include a 1 1/2 pound lobster dinner on Fridays for $19.95. Larry and Marco and all of the staff always make us feel at home, so we look forward to a wonderful dining experience almost every evening with each visit.

Shores. What a convenience that is, and we enjoy meeting the staff there as well.

For lunch, we often go across the street from Roger Dean Stadium and dine at Muggs. Or we can head back to the resort (about 20 minutes from the stadium) and stop along the way at  Duffy's off of PGA Boulevard where the crab cakes are outstanding. There are many other little restaurants available as well, in both Jupiter and in nearby Juno.

One day, we drove up the coast for lunch at the Ocean Grill in Vero Beach. The crab cakes there were excellent and so was the view of the ocean.

This year we truly enjoyed the convenience of the valet parking at Palm Beach Shores. Jason and the rest of the parking staff were amazing in the handling of all the vehicles that were constantly coming and going. We can hardly wait to return next year to the beauty of Singer Island and to the baseball fields of Jupiter, Florida.

Looks like paradise. And with food so close? Awesome.

It's beautiful there, Alex, but, with day light savings time, it's looking ever prettier in Virginia!

Glad to hear you had such a nice time... It looks wonderful and I'm AMAZED at how cheap a lobster dinner is in that neck of the woods!

It's the Friday night special for lobsters flown in from Maine earlier in the day. Great restaurant! Thanks for the visit, Michael.
