I was brought to this restaurant to celebrate a person's birthday. Good atmosphere and setting, although a bit cool for sitting outside. The food was good and tasty, six of us in the group and all commented on how good their meal was. Staff were friendly and service efficient. In summertime this place would be well worth visiting, although I... More

Well after missing the sign for this restaurant, as I was looking for a hotel (it was once but now a dining lounge!). We settled for a few drinks and a late lunch / early dinner, The service was great, the food was hot and as expected and plentiful. The views stunning. It's certainly a place we'd return to.

There aren't too many places near Crystal Beach for a nice sit-down dinner. Luckily, there's the Palmwood. The interior exudes a 60s vibe including the sign above the door proclaiming "Room for Rent", but it was so nice when we visited, everyone was outside. Their draft beer selection isn't huge, but has mainstays like Coors Light and Steamwhistle. We heard... More

The Palmwood is a great place that had been around for many many years, large floor space, good food, bands and an awesome view of Lake Erie.

It's the view and patio you come here for, not the food. Fish from Lake Erie is good, rest of menu is mediocre at best. Service is friendly.

This is an older dining lounge and patio and could definitely use an upgrade. Everything is quite worn down. However the meals are good portion sizes and salads are large. Quality is average. The view of the water and the park makes for a very relaxed setting and makes up for the mediocre building and average food.

Lovely location and views of the sea all around restaurant. Cocktails were good but meals we ordered were average. Some of it didn't taste fresh and the salad was not good at all. Wouldn't come here to eat again which is a shame as the restaurant has the best location. Compared to other places to eat in the local area.

Shrimp platter with 12 huge shrimps, 3 different kinds, was a great value as well as the Perch dinner, lightly battered, great fries. Sipping on Lime margaritas watching the view, waiting for our dinner watching the gorgeous waterfront view was perfect! We will be back!!
