Palm Beach Grill is in fact a Houston's in disguise, one of the large chain of restaurants owned by Hillstone. The Town of Palm Beach made Hillstone change the name when it opened in 1999 because this diamond-studded beach resort won't give permits to chain restaurants, but Hillstone has some policies of its own: Bartenders are forbidden to serve shots.

During season, incorrigible dipsomaniacs reserve weeks in advance for a Saturday night table here -- and with good reason. From the cheeseburger to the Silver Service hot dog to the buttery red snapper to the fabulous key lime and banana cream pie, the food here is absolutely perfect.
