Lake Worth is a little known gem in southern Florida in between West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach. An idyllic stop-off point on a road trip down Interstate 95, Lake Worth has an abundance of places for good food on the way. Here are our 10 favorites.
Thought to be one of the best Greek restaurants in the state, Chris’ Taverna offers diners excellent, authentic Mediterranean fare in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The dishes are colorful, tasty and perfectly presented. Popular options include chargrilled baby lamb chops, loukaniko sausage, shrimp salad, and, of course, the go-to gyro wrap. Incredibly popular, Chris’ Taverna fills up fast, so either get there early or be prepared to wait a short while for a table. Luckily, the staff is used to a busy restaurant, and neither the speed of service nor the quality of the cooking ever suffers.

Callaro’s Steak House
Having dubbed itself ‘truly the best steak house in Lake Worth,’ Callaro’s Steak House is fueled by high expectations. Luckily, that they live up to them. The choice of cuts is second to none, with steak au poivre, chateaubriand, delmonico, and cowboy all featured alongside the customary porterhouse, filet mignon, and T-bone. The choice of side dishes is equally impressive, with the sweet bourbon mashed potatos a particular favorite. Callaro’s also offers a fine selection of burgers, seafood, and chicken dishes, as well as a tempting Sunday brunch menu featuring crabcake Benedict and lobster omelets alongside other innovative dishes.

Benny’s On The Beach
Offering diners one of the best views in Lake Worth, Benny’s On The Beach is located right on the pier. The breakfast plates are generous, and the variety of dishes is exemplary. Tuck into a plate of freshly baked lemon bread coated in almonds and layered with tangy berries or opt for the more traditional snowbird breakfast of three eggs, fluffy pancakes, bacon, sausage, and choice of tea or coffee. At lunch, the menu is filled with tempting beef burgers, multi-tiered sandwiches, create-your-own hot dogs, and crisp salads.
Benny’s On The Beach, 10 S Ocean Boulevard, Lake Worth, FL, USA +1 561 582 9001
One of few health conscious, meat-free restaurants in the area, Darbster is located on the edge of the lake and home to a pretty, waterside deck. Dishes include gluten-free tacos, mushroom and pesto lasagna, vegetarian Wellington, and crispy falafel, as well as fresh salads and sandwiches. Innovative takes on the classics include the ‘black and bleu burger’ (a blackened brown rice and lentil burger topped with tofu bleu cheese) and beet tartare (roasted beets, avocado, and jalapeno ponzu).
