In the late 1890s, just before the turn of the century, industry tycoons and elegant socialites began flocking to the pristine shores of a new destination—a long strip of an island called Palm Beach.
It was Henry M. Flagler, one of America’s great industrialists, who started the trend of grand, gorgeous properties on the island. His first was The Royal Poinciana, a six-story Georgian beauty. Two years later, Flagler debuted his premier oceanfront hotel, which delighted guests with its proximity to the water and unique location—right at “the breakers,” where the waves crashed and sprayed.
Today, the story of The Breakers continues, holding fast to the ideals that put it on the map—unapologetic luxury, seaside glamour and world-class service—but also embracing the new. In our modern world that is more interconnected than ever before, we’re fully committed to our employees, our environment and the enduring mission of our organization.

Enter The Breakers’ grand lobby and you’ll hear it: the growing roar of laughter, music and clinking goblets. Turn the corner into the North Loggia and you’ll see it: everyone dressed to the nines, abuzz in our exquisite Florentine Room—where the glitterati drank and dined for decades—reinvented as the dazzling and modern HMF, Palm Beach’s hottest gathering place.
Named after the resort’s founder, Henry Morrison Flagler, HMF is steeped in the glamour of an earlier era, yet wholly current. This chic social club boasts an eclectic, globally influenced menu, an acclaimed wine list of more than 2,000 unique selections and an array of bespoke cocktails. Grab a seat and people watch as you listen to the transformative sounds of Kirill Basov, The Breakers’ renowned music and entertainment director known for his dreamy, distinctive mash-ups of old and new.
Relaxation and refinement as only The Breakers can do. With a stunning backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, our cozy-yet-sophisticated spot puts you impossibly close to the water.
Come for fresher-than-fresh seafood for lunch or dinner. Stay for inspired cocktails or something from our extensive wine-by-the-glass selection. A glamorous exhibition kitchen puts you at the center of it all. Stroll in as you are and experience the allure of the yachting lifestyle. Bespoke nautical details, beautiful aquariums, and a front-row seat to the ocean views no matter where you sit. Nothing short of spectacular, this is Palm Beach life at its best.
Down the resort’s picturesque, palm-lined drive sits Flagler Steakhouse, a fresh take on the classic American chophouse. Inside, dramatic beamed ceilings, wood furnishings and a prep-luxe palette of red, white and blue evoke steakhouse tradition, while sleek, oversized chandeliers and graphic art skew contemporary. Out on the terrace, designed for comfortable dining every month of the year, panoramic views of the golf course and city skyline affirm you’re in the heart of Palm Beach.
Tuck into a table and explore our celebrated menu, anchored by the finest selection of USDA prime cuts—a mere 2% of all sourced beef—and expanded with Italian specialties, savory sides, and lighter options like fresh fish, salads and more. Come early or stay late and enjoy a cocktail or nightcap at the handsome bar.
The Italian Restaurant
