Great marina, great food, awesome docks and all! You can also get food delivered to your boat.

If you give a little more info as to what you are looking for in a marina I could help you better. Live aboard? Store the boat? Luxury? Low key? Budget?

Old Port Cove is deluxe. Palm Harbor downtown is too, do a comparison. Since its remodel, the Riviera muni marina is good and cheaper than the other two.

I'd also check out the Loggerhead in Palm Beach Gardens; nice thing about them is that if you have a lease at one, you get free transient reciprocal docking at all their others. We were at their Hollywood facility, which is very nice and secure, for a few months one year (near the FT.L airport, BTW) and made use of this privelege a few times.

Riviera Beach muni is reasonable. Well protected by Peanut Island from the East and right next to the inlet. Good restaurant.

Riviera Muni is OK. The great "Tiki" restaurant has been demolished in preparation to build a giant hotel complex. The surrounding neighborhood is one that I would not consider safe to walk in. Frankly it is a dump. If you need a skanky hooker or a bag of crack you are in the right place!

Ouch! Than that marina is only good as a boat yard staging place.
