Enjoy an adult beverage, live music and fresh air at the Sunset Celebration, Sailfish Marina, every Thursday evening.  Thirsty Thursdays are a local’s favorite.  Listen as Jimmy Buffet style music and/or steel drums play on the boardwalk.

Sunset at Sailfish offers a classic South Florida setting of fresh seafood restaurant and yachting marina. Spot lazy pelicans bobbing around in the water hopping to catch a scrap of fish food. The restaurant is on the Intracoastal Waterway, north of the Lake Worth inlet and a bit north of Palm Beach. Come by boat, car and just sit back and watch all the boats cruise by. Choose a formal dining experience or grab a famous “Grouper Dog” or basket of Conch Fritters for a night reminiscent of an evening in Key West.
