REVIEW: KE’E GRILL

IMG_4593

Ke’e Grill is another in the line of Palm Beach (adjacent) restaurants serving a menu of seafood specialties (Leftovers, Samantha’s, The Food Shack, Captain Charlie’s) to a crowd of good looking altacockers fresh from the golf course and their visiting kids fresh off the plane.

It’s all hipster brick, wood and concrete in this citywide favorite den of sausages.  It’s probably the last place many would peg The Monster (being a beer and sausage joint) but occasionally the Wurstkuche itch must be scratched.  And today is one of those days.

With the requisite area for a DJ (it gets jet engine loud here when the bass goes running, like holy hell make it stop my ears are bleeding loud), a small smoking patio and a bar serving their impressive array of beers this ode to Bavaria is rarely empty and gets serious kudos from all corners.
