South Shores Tavern & Patio Bar
Posted by Lorraine G. on 03/04/2013
The restaurant was reserved for 60 diners and closed to the public on the day we went. The waiters/waitresses did the best they could with a kitchen that was clearly under- staffed, Two chefs and two stoves. The rolls were served cold with frozen butter. The salad consisted of bib lettuce with a few grape tomatoes. The soup which was listed as chicken curry turned out to be canned tomato bisque. The main dishes of Salmon and/or Chicken Francaise were served 2 hours after ordering and were passable. The people who gave this tavern high marks surely can't have eaten in the one I did.

South Shores Tavern looks like a casual place to grab a cold brewski from the street. Step inside... and you are pampered with awesome service, cloth linens, cold beer and great food. Hooray for JUNKYARD CHIPS!

I seldom add my voice to a review, but we had the most amazing food in this low down local bar. When we visit lake Worth (4 times a year) we like the rough and raucous hippy rock and roll atmosphere. And the live music is always hot. On this night it was Mike Mineo. Related to Sal? Wow, they were great. Very varied styles. We drank and rocked out until the band finished their night. On this visit we actually ordered more than chicken wings. The menu has been completely revamped. It had a coherent identity unlike the old scattered menu that had no real direction. I had the prime strip steak with peppercorn sauce and my wife had the Baja fish wrap. I had low expectations due to past disappointments with the food. I almost fainted when I cut into the meat. It was cooked right and was fork tender. On par with Morton’s or Ruth’s Chris, at half their price! The sauce was as good if not better than any French restaurant. I was amazed. My wife’s wrap was like a closed burrito or quesadilla. A very clever creation I have never seen before. Several little garnishes were a great touch to the dish. As well traveled foodies we were floored by the quality, flavors and presentations. We bought the chef a drink, but he was too busy to come out. South Shores is a paradox of contrasts. We love it and recommend it highly. A minor flaw was in the service which was spotty. After our dinner the place filled up and it was hard to find a server to order more drinks.

I have been to South Shore several times for drinks, music, and socializing. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere. I had heard through the local "grapevine" that the food used to be less than impressive. However, recently I have been hearing the opposite. (Apparently, they have a new executive chef who has been there less than a year). My aunt and I were looking for a local place to eat dinner, and we decided to give S.S. a shot. I am so very glad that we did. First, the service was excellent! Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. We both ordered French Onion soup before our meals. It was so flavorful without being overly salty, or too full of bread. Wonderful bubbly cheese in the perfect amount topped off a nice portion of soup! I ordered the crab cake dinner, which was served with perfectly cooked grilled asparagus, and garlic smashed potatoes, (which were not overly potent with garlic..just right). The crab cakes were decadent and made with real crab...topped off with an awesome light mustard sauce, and a balsamic glaze drizzle! The combination of the flavors was amazing. My aunt got the seared tuna appetizer, which was fresh, perfectly seared, and not overly garnished. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal as well. Last but not least, the prices were very reasonable, especially for the quality of food! We had a wonderful experience! We will definitely be making S.S. a regular spot!
