PALACE is the first and only LGBT bar and restaurant on world famous Ocean Drive, in the heart of South Beach's historic Art Deco district and located across from "the gay beach" (1052 Ocean Drive, near 11th street corner), which means the party always moves from the sand to the Palace. It's a party with our entertaining queens and their outrageous drag shows 7 days a week! See you at the Legendary PALACE!

Great server! I think the best I’ve ever had aside from a cruise ship! And the best salad!!! I had the South Beach salad with grilled salmon.
Fun show too

I have been to the Palace several times before for brunch. I wanted to highlight how much I enjoyed the snapper. It was very tasty and served at the correct temperature. Our server was great.

Of the four drag shows I've seen (two in Key West and one, incredibly enough, in Hamtramck, Michigan outside Detroit) this was by far the worst. Talentless dancers, who didn't even make a pretense at lip-synching the songs they performed to, and seemed to view their performances as nothing but an excuse to solicit and collect dollar bills from their undemanding audience. As for the food, it arrived cold....and the steak (ordered medium) was cooked rare. About the only bright spot in this over-priced mess was the wait staff, who worked hard and tried to be as accommodating as possible. South Beach deserves a far better show than this. I won't be back.

We had a table for 10 for my significant others’ birthday celebration. We went to the 11:30 Saturday drag brunch. It was a total blast. The food service was much improved from their old location and the server was friendly and attentive, even though he clearly had many tables to look after. The food isn’t a 5 star experience but it’s good enough to enjoy and have a overall decent dining experience. I had the omelette. Simple, but effective. Several friends had steak and eggs and they were mostly satisfied with it although one persons steak was very overdone. The drag show itself was amazing — tons of people were screaming with delight. I’d do it again in a heartbeat, what a pleasure!!

You come here for fun and to have a truly South Beach experience. This place is all about the drag shows. Every night has a different theme. We were there on Wayback Wednesday.
There are a few different performers that come out and do short sets and return later to do more sets. There is no particular showtime and there are some breaks in between.
As long as you can celebrate differences, have a great sense of humor and can stand a little raunch, you’ll enjoy yourself.
There is no cover or minimum. The drinks and food are reasonably priced, especially since that’s all you are actually paying. The food is surprisingly good as well so if you come for that alone doubtful you’ll be disappointed.
Tipping the performers is encouraged but they do not pressure anyone so feel free not to, tip a dollar or whatever you like.
Almost all seating is outside (covered) and that’s where the performances take place.
Fun times!

We went to the drag brunch and had an amazing time. You get unlimited mimosas and they will fill up your glass even if you've only had a sip. The performances are amazing and the vibe is very fun. The food is decent but the price is a bit high for the food they give you (I guess you're paying for the unlimited mimosas!!). The sound level is VERY LOUD - we had to move tables because our baby could not handle the noise. The service was amazing and we are very glad we went.

The drag brunch was so fun!! We were seated promptly and they easily accommodated the fact that we had to leave early (we had to get to a cruise port.) The food was absolutely amazing and they are super quick to refill your bottomless mimosa. The show is definitely not for children but really entertaining and the security detail shuffle people off the sidewalk to keep moving and not watch the show so you feel part of an exclusive event. I can’t recommend it enough!

Everyone that visits me from out of state is brought here for a fun night out! Been here twice already and I’m coming back tomorrow! Both times our servers were amazing, they always checked on us and were very prompt. Food is also very good. Had the bacon burger the first time and the coconut shrimp the second. YUM! Fun ambiance and these queens are always on point! Looking forward to our dinner tomorrow!

We went to Palace for Valentine’s Day. I made my decision based on the menu on opentable. We made reservations and were seated promptly. Unfortunately, the menu they have not did not resemble the menu on opentable at all. It did not include seafood soup, fajitas, or king crab legs. I told the manager and all he said was the menu has been the same for the five months he’s worked there and he will talk to his IT guy about it. I had the mussels with some pasta. It was just ok. My wife had the shrimp scampi. The shrimp were very good but the dish was bland overall.

The food is not ever expected to be mind-blowing, but the service and unlimited mimosas, with the unparalleled amazing show is simply an unbeatable value and experience! Thank you to the girls for making yet another fantastic Sunday Funday!!
