While many flock to the newest restaurant on the block, there is something to be said of the tried and trues that have stood the test of time in our county. One of those gems is Ke’e Grill in Juno Beach, where locals and visitors alike have been enjoying dinner together since 1997.
Inspired by its namesake beach on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, Ke’e Grill offers diners a tropical escape complete with sophisticated tiki décor, exposed bamboo tables, and market umbrellas gracing the most sought-after tables in the dining room. Serving a dinner-only menu of fresh fish and seafood alongside mainland staples, guests can enjoy the fresh catches of the season with dishes like the Bronzed Swordfish, Sweet Potato Crusted Fresh Catch, and Surf & Turf featuring Hand Cut Filet Mignon.
Their expansive wine list includes over ninety wines, over sixty of which are offered by the glass, while the cocktail menu includes favorites like the rum-based Caribbean Dream and a full martini menu with selections from Lemon Drop to White Chocolate Espresso.
Their attention to detail, from the freshest ingredients to service standards, has produced a steady following for over two decades. A popular destination for family dinner, date night, and special occasions, Ke’e Grill aims to impress with every meal they serve. Their kitchen and front-of-house teams have been together for the better part of two decades, creating a family-like environment for regulars.
For those looking for a more casual dining experience, their sister restaurant, Cool’A Fish Bar, is located in Palm Beach Gardens just off PGA Blvd.
Favorites: Ke’e Grill Cioppino, Double Cut Lamb Chops, Sweet Potato Crusted Fish.

A South Florida native, I was born in Miami and raised in Palm Beach. I attended the University of Florida before moving to Charlotte, NC for a few years. During this time the county boomed with new developments popping up. When I returned, I began @EatPalmBeach as a way to rediscover my hometown while supporting local businesses. People gather around food and beverage, so the dining scene was the perfect introduction to new communities, restaurants, and talent. The culinary offerings have exploded over the past decade, but here are a few of my “must sees” when crossing the county line.
