Top of the Point - Closed

777 S. Flagler Drive West Palm Beach, FL 33401-6161 | West Palm Beach | 561-832-2424

Location Description:

Built on the site of the famous old '40s outdoor burger bar the Hut, Top of the Point, located on the penthouse floor of Phillips Point with 180-degree views of the Intracoastal and Palm Beach, isn't as far away as you might imagine from that old shake shack. In fact, the menu in this room with a view, an outpost of the Breakers Hotel, is eccentrically imagined comfort food, notably a lobster pot pie, chicken and dumplings, plank salmon, flatbreads, Kobe burgers, and salads. Roast chicken with broccolini and large-grained couscous; flatbread scattered with artichokes and goat cheese; and arugula salad with warm mushrooms is all edible if not far above average (heavy on the pepper and salt). But the service is amusing: one waiter executing every rearrangement of flatware with little flourishes and wrist flicks, even pulling off a fancy heel turn (think early Temptations choreography) as he sashayed around our table. Somebody loves his job.
