family trip down to Palm Beach

My husband, son (21) and I will be driving down to Palm Beach the first of May for 5 days and then heading up to Orlando for 2 days before traveling back home to Virginia. We are looking for some restaurants no more then 45 minutes away that we could try. We will be on a budget so we can't spend $30 a head for each meal, but a nice dinner or two is planned. Over all I'd like to keep meals to no more then $15 to $18 for the entrees. We will also be looking for some night life. As for types of food I'm not big on Italian or Mexican but will try one if it is good since both my husband and son like it. I'm a country girl and I like southern food. I do have a soft spot for unusual sandwiches/burgers. We definitely need a couple good seafood places. My husband and son will eat any kind of food so I'm open to trying pretty much anything. One last request, some places that have healthy eating is a must as my husbands cholesterol will be over the top after eating out for 7 days. We will have our car and bikes for travel. Any advise on things to do in the area would be great too. We are big outdoor people. We plan to visit the Henry Morrison Flagler museum as we are staying in that area. Thanks in advance for your help

  1. Unusual burgers would be Relish in WPB Northwood Village area. It will cost you $15 to $18 for burger fries and drink though. Beef, bison, veal, duck, turkey, portabello, shrimp, fish, veggie burgers with about 15 different relishes like beer onion, leeks and wine,olive tapenade, etc.Also, the Grease Bar downtown Clematis has the best burger around, bar none. Aside from these burger joints, seafood for 15 to 18 is almost impossible for dinner. Tin Fish (I have never been) or Don Ramon's Cuban on Clematis maybe?
