Fodor's Expert Review Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar
Long heralded as one of the best spots for watching sunsets, this place also gets high marks for its fresh seafood offerings. The grouper cheeks and wasabi scallops in particular are among more intriguing menu items. Healthier fare includes an array of wraps. The restaurant is casual but not too casual. It's got a bit of a Tommy Bahama feel to it, so you may want to ditch the beach attire if you plan to dine here. Be advised that it gets pretty packed around sunset, when a live band plays island music and the margaritas flow.
