Good Eats on the Water - North of Boca?

We usually head south to the Cove or Houston's for family cruises or when visitors come to visit for a nice cruise and dinner. Earlier this week we decided to cruise north to pre-scout the area. Maybe we missed it but didn't see much of anything going north. We saw a place called Deck84 which looked deserted and then Two George's and the place next to it. Kept going north to Lanatana and saw a place called Old Key Lime or something like that. Granted, it was a Tuesday afternoon and crowds should be expected to be light but I was not impressed with much of anything. Did we miss something or turn back too soon?

    You found all the good ones. In order of my favorites, I'd go with :

    #1 Old Key Lime House. One of my favorite FL bars actually. Not the best food in the world, but fun atmosphere and great view. Some really tasty appetizers and sandwiches.
    #2 Deck 84. Great bar and very good food.
    #3 Banana Boat. South side of the canal from Two Georges. Fun outside bar. Decent food.
    #4 Two Georges. Used to love the place, but it just hasn't rung my bell the last few times I've gone.

    An upper-scale crowd, and a bit pricey... Old Calypso has some really good food. (directly across from Deck 84)

    I think that completes the on-the-water list from Boca to Lantana.

    Generally speaking, the food options suck. Calypso probably has the best quality and worst atmosphere. Deck 84 food stinks IMO but the PBR's are cold and the weekend reggae band is good. Two George's food is just plain bad, Banana Boat slightly better. Key Lime house has improved their food the last few months (the lobster/shrimp rolls are pretty **** tatsy). Moving north, use the new public docks near Clematis and hit up Bahama Mama's.

    A good idea is to dock up at Two G's, enjoy some frozen mudslides and/or cold beers and stroll 1 and 1/2 blocks west and chow down at Hurricane Alley.

    I've been to all of them, and I'd say Deck 84 is your best option. Great atmosphere, drinks, and the best food of the bunch. Two George's is probably a little more laid back, and it's a close second for me. At Old Calypso the food might be good, but you'll probably be the only people there besides some 90 year olds that are about to keel over.

    if im going for a cruise with the old lady for a day, we usually stop and grab a couple of publix subs and anchor up in lake wyman (beer can island). The crowd is always good, the food is just what you expect, and the beer is always cold.

    Go a little further north to the West Palm Waterfront, dock and enjoy the Clematis Street area.

    I have yet to have anything bad at Deck 84. I have done them all and that is our new favorite.

    Not a bad idea! On this trip we took Subway subs and a cooler full of drinks. Spent a few bucks and wasn't hungry. Could spend 10x at one of these joints and feel about the same, I guess. I like the "pull over and cook" idea. Bought a new Magma Cabo grill, extra propane and a rod holder mount last summer when it was all on sale at WM. Still in the box on a shelf in my garage . . . . I did see a sign at Deck84 that I think said we'll cook your catch.
