... Got nothing to do Sunday afternoon? You're invited to our famous T-Dance starting at 5:00 P.M.
Traveled all the way from up north after I received two confirmations about our reservation only to find it was CLOSED! Ruined my best friend's birthday.
We had a reservation for 7:30 when we got there the building was closed we called the number no answer so we left messages and emailed them to let them know but I never got a respond our reservation was for a party of 7 people and then charge the card $70.00
First time there was an Amazing & Great time! Food & drinks was awesome.
Fun place for brunch. Stopped in on our mini-vacay away from Texas. I was very disappointed that we weren't informed that the Drag Show was not going to be happening; which was to be included in brunch price according to the online website. The show being included was the main reason we decided to stop in for brunch due to several recommendations. I had to ask our server to find out and that was after we were almost done eating our food. It would have been nice to be told when we were seated to avoid us patiently waiting for it to begin. I will say the brunch food (we had the steak plate and the rancheros plate) was some of the best food we had all weekend! Highly suggest those plates. The bottomless mimosas was also a very nice touch and our server was great at staying on top of drinks/service. We hope to return when the shows can resume to finally get the full experience.
As always, Palace is the place to be in South Beach if you are looking to have a good time, a good drink, food and an amazing service. Kudos to making their customers enjoy themselves even during rough times like the pandemic.
It’s an amazing place to have a fun day
We made our reservations and drove all the way out there just for them to say the show was cancelled . They didn’t say that anywhere on the website and we even called to verify and they don’t let you talk to real people
This is a drag brunch with no drags, they charge you for water and have you melting outside for a purchase of a fan.
Not worth the price
Food is meh and the drag queens are underwhelming and lack luster at best.
My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Palace. The ambience was great, the people were very friendly and the staff was superb. This is a must visit attraction for anyone visiting Miami. Oh, and be sure to buy a Palace fan. So fun!!
An amazing time with some friends - celebrated my birthday and everything from our bartender, to the food to the show was phenomenal
Thumbs down. Servers don’t know what they’re doing or the menu.
Good brunch, nice entertainment, safe , clean and very comfortable patio fallowing the new social distance guidelines.
Went for Drag Brunch. Unfortunately there wasn't a show. There was a 4 minute parade of a few entertainers which we thought was the intro act. Then nothing. Very disappointed since you're paying a premium for brunch. Had we known there was no real show we would not have gone. Food was tasty, but double the price of regular brunch.
Excellent service. Great time.
Absolutely amazing food, energy, people and music. Incredible service and is right along the beach strip
Absolutely loved our birthday celebration at Palace thank you to everyone!
Nice place to eat and enjoy with friends. totally recommended.
Great place, amazing service staff. Mimosas were good.
It’s always a good time! Attentive staff, great new menu/food & the show is always AMAZING...surprised by the queen wearing mask but loved it!
This 2 star review is specifically for the post-Coronavirus "Social Distance Brunch" on the weekends at The Palace, as it's a big disappointment. In the past I'd have ALWAYS given this place 5 stars.
We were thrilled to find that The Palace was reopening post-Covid . We came for brunch, expecting the same fun and zany experience we've always had during each of the times we've come as a couple, or with much larger groups. We thought maybe they'd be doing things like collecting tips in a bucket rather than the patrons handing the queens their bills to reduce touching and potential germ spread and the staff and performers would wear masks, but assumed everything else about the drag brunch here would be the same as usual. Unfortunately that wasn't the case, yet the price charged was the same as always.
The place was already nearly full of patrons when we arrived, including the tables and seating that have been added on (now closed to vehicle traffic) Ocean Drive. Our server explained they wouldn't have a full drag show, but the drag queens would be entertaining and walking around to the tables. We wanted to patronize this place since we have lots of fun memories here, and we wanted to support them in their reopening efforts, so we stayed.
Only 1 drag queen even walked around to chat with people (though 2 others kind of milled about near the entrance to the bar). She also got up and performed 1 single number. When she did, the crowd went crazy, dancing around and cheering along, as that's what they'd really come here to see (and it's what The Palace is best known for). Unfortunately that was the first, last and only song that was performed during our few hours here but with the same price they'd normally charge for brunch and a full show - nearly $60 with included auto gratuity and tax. I came with a pocketful of bills for tipping the performers, but aside from a tip to the drag queen who actually walked around to say hi to everyone, there was no need.
Went for brunch and had a blast! Unfortunately since covid19 they couldn’t put on a whole show because of social distancing but it was still fun. I will definitely be back!
Bae and I had a blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast tonight ‼️ Glad we made it to the last show before the coronavirus closing 😭 Certainly will be back in the fall once we’re back to being normal USA as we know it
It was awesome! We had a wonderful time - best part of our Miami trip
He had an amazing time!
Had an amazing time, our server was fantastic. The performances were amazing. The host was funny and entertaining. The food was very good. And the mimosas kept coming. Loved it! Can't wait to go back!
Entertainment was great, as always. Service was ok - gratuity is already included so servers don’t put in much effort. Much to my disappointed, The brunch menu has been downsized which doesn’t leave much to choose from, and the quality/taste of the food was nothing to rave about.
There was an incident that took place blocks away from the establishment and the staff ran off not caring for their customers but came running back inquiring about the bill without any apologies. They didn't even address the matter or show any concerns, smh.
A lot of fun... always recommend friends to go visit. It is upbeat and energetic! Endless mimosas adds to the experience.
This place was a blast!!! The entertainment and service was awesome. The food isn't amazing, but let's be real, the food isn't why you go to this place. We had so much fun and would strongly recommend!
Super fun show. The food wasn't great and the service definitely could have been better but you go for the show and not the rest. Would definitely go again next time we're in South Beach!
Lovely drag brunch! Performances were great. Host was funny. Overall great time! Make sure you bring cash to tip the queens!
Great show, great brunch, great service. Make sure to bring singles to tip the queens.
Great drag brunch. Food was lovely and the show they put on was outstanding.
Fantastic show, service and food quality. Would have been nice to have dessert included in $45 charge.
Amazing people and environment.
Totally enjoyed the performance and atmosphere. Food wasn’t good and overpriced but luckily the performance and service made up for that.
Grossest NY strip of life! The drag queens were the best part though.
So much fun everyone treated us so well. Love the show.
We had the absolute best time at palace while visiting Miami! Perfect way to bring in my birthday. After the brunch we ended up going back the next day because we had so much fun!
