I am from Maryland and Jupiter Beach Resort (where I am getting married) has given me some recommendations for restaurants for having a rehearsal dinner for about 25 people to include: the Waterway Cafe, Vic and Angelos, Austin's Grill, Crab House.. Other people have suggested Yard House, Panama Hattie's and a new restaurant Nick and Johnnies. I wanted some honest feedback. We are looking for a relaxed type of atmosphere, (nothing stuffy- nothing requiring a certain dress code), cost is important, we would like to keep it to 30pp for food at a maximum, would love something on the water/dockside. Most important, the food must be good - need not be of Ruth Chris or The Palm quality, but nothing like Friday's or Olive Garden. Our guests all are renting cars and will be staying at various locations, but it appears that PGA Blvd, Palm Beach Gardens area is convenient for most.
We have seen the menus of Crab House, Waterway Cafe, and Vic and Angelos - they seem to offer a variety of foods and maybe are quality, but we keep reading mixed reviews that are outdated...
Please, any local advice will be sooooooooooooo appreciated... it is one of the last things we have to do!!!
thank you in advance.
