I went with my girlfriend twice now, and both times our food has been great. She ordered the breaded chicken twice, and I've had the Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. It was all cooked perfectly, and tasted great. We went on a Wednesday and a Friday;...More

The Sands Eatery has daily happy hour from noon till six. Great friend with a casual atmosphere. The service is excellent, Pedro in particular was an amazing waiter who was very friendly and efficient with everything requested. Possibly the best waiter I have ever had

Great food and very friendly. The drinks at both the Eatery and Ruth Chris were outstanding. The friendly service made these places even more enjoyable. One should not miss these places

We enjoyed several meals at this casual restaurant on the water/beach. Audrey and Andreana are absolutely the best servers you could ask for.

It is so convenient to grab a lunch here. It is typical Marriott Pricey but the food is good. I love happy hour because the drinks are very expensive to drink other than at happy hour. Good service. Polite staff.

Items were reasonably priced and good as we enjoyed our afternoon outside in the pool and ocean. In the evenings they often have some singing playing an instrument who is usually excellent. I loved having the iguanas run around us. Food had an excellent flavor.

No posted menu...changes with daily catch, and some regular items. If you're staying anywhere on Palm Beach, take a quick walk through. Eatery is at the Pool Bar.
