The Palmwood is all about the view. The food is average at best. Like the restaurant itself, the menu is pretty tired. Service is friendly and decent but not great. Without the exceptional view, the Palmwood doesn’t have great appeal.

Before it was the Palmwood it was Sheehan's. They were from Buffalo and had a cottage on Brunswick Ave., C.B. I owned it for a while years later. My dad was a bartender at Sheehan's, now the Palmwood.

I think it was Circus/Circus? there is an old billboard near the property stating that. Probably in the Crystal Beach heyday!
