Dining at the Palm Beach International Boat Show
If you are planning a visit to the Palm Beach International Boat Show at the end of this month, make sure the first stop on your schedule is HMY’s extensive display of new and pre-owned boats and yachts for sale. Among our usual displays will be the Two Oceans 555 Power Catamaran that is making her Palm Beach International Boat Show debut, three NIMBUS models, and finally, our ECLIPSE tent which is also new to the Palm Beach Show this year.
We will be located on Ramp #3 – just look for the unmistakable teal flags. Once you’ve perused our display, take some time to contemplate that perfect yacht for you at one of the many fantastic restaurants open for business in downtown West Palm Beach.
We’ve rounded up a list of the five restaurants that are within walking distance from the boat show and we’re confident you’ll want to work these spots into your itinerary.

A true staple to the restaurant scene in West Palm Beach and the Palm Beach International Boat Show—E.R. Bradley’s Saloon. This is a well-known, highly-regarded restaurant right on the Palm Beach waterfront. During the Palm Beach Boat Show, E.R. Bradley’s will be at the center of excitement since it is VERY close to the main gate. This locale is a pillar in the community and serves as a landmark as much as it serves food. Speaking of their food, their menu will offer something even to the pickiest of eaters and you might even be able to catch a great band while you enjoy your meal. Whether you are coming or going, you can stop for a bite to eat right here in the city’s backyard. View their menu here. Known as the landmark bar and restaurant on the West Palm Beach Waterfront, E.R. Bradley's offers an extensive menu with food and drink options for every taste. Come experience traditions that have become a part of West Palm Beach's community fabric - part of the city's identity.

Classic Italian in a prime location. Elisabetta’s Ristorante was a Diner’s Choice award winner in 2020 and is known to craft some of the best pizzas in Palm Beach County. Not only is the food and drink spectacular at Elisabetta’s but the interior and overall atmosphere at their new West Palm Beach location is simply incredible.
‘Location, location, location!’ is a popular phrase in real estate and it applies to this fine dining experience on the roof of the Ben Autograph Hotel. Spruzzo offers a stellar view of the Palm Beach Intracoastal and during the boat show, you’ll be able to get a birds-eye view of every yacht and boat in the show. This is the ONLY rooftop and waterfront dining experience available in the city. The locale is a popular spot for happy hour as the sun sets over the city, but they also offer a fine menu of Mediterranean cuisine as well as a raw bar. Beyond the bar, right in the middle of Spruzzo, you will find an incredibly inviting pool so don’t forget your swimsuit!
Who doesn’t love a good taco? After the boat show, a taco, a marg, and some excellent guacamole will be sure to hit the spot which is why we highly recommend Rocco’s! Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar serve the best authentic, fresh, and reasonably priced Mexican food featuring the simple recipes of everyday Mexican life. If tacos don’t suit you, they also have an amazing brunch that you could hit on your way into the show!
From a small Italian island known as Ponza, comes the Abbenantes who immigrated in 1974 and have been selling authentic Italian pizza by the slice in Lake Worth, Florida since. Lynora’s rapidly climbed to the top recommendations in the area for Italian food and is a popular spot for brunch on the weekends. The West Palm Beach location, on the east end of Clematis Street, is a lively scene with contagious energy. Check out their weekly specials, and of course, their happy hour which is every day from 3 pm – 6 pm. If you enjoy potato pasta, our team would highly recommend their gnocchi with their house-made pesto sauce. Their authentic meatballs are also great and pair well with any of their dishes!
We have a feeling this is going to be a GREAT show! With this one being in our backyard, we especially look forward to this each year. Thank you in advance to all of our clients who show up to support us, our staff, and the Palm Beach International Boat Show!
