Good BBQ and good happy hour!

BBQ goodness and great prices for happy hour! Also during the day, if you order full meals you can get use of beach chairs & an umbrella! Good location; fun, friendly staff and delicious BBQ food! The salads also looked very good but we didn't try them ourselves.

There was music both nights we ate there which added to the fun. Outside seating with tiki lamps next to the ocean. Fantastic. I had a salad with grilled shrimp-it was so good I would've ate there every night if I could. We had great, friendly staff (all but one night-we had a waitress that definitely didn't want to be...

I went to this place because of the reviews which mentioned you can use their beach chairs so long as you purchase a drink (and lunch?). Ordered a hot dog and fries that took almost 30 minutes to prepare. Even then, I wasn't at all bothered as I was content with simply being on holiday. I used that time to... More

Nice beach eatery. The Chicken Caesar salad is delicious. The hamburger was just ok. The ribs are very good. We come here to eat every year when we are on the rock. Service is a bit slow but I attribute most of that to how busy they are. Great view and the fireball on the beach is also a neat... More

They make a thin pizza that I love. Only wish I could get it like that at home. I wonder if I will violate my no repeat dinner rule with the pizza. I still need to try their ribs.

Service was horrible, took 45 minutes for 2 burgers and 2 salads. Prices went up way higher then last year, or since Neil sold the business. 19.00 for a salad and 1.00 extra for dressing. Not friendly a feel at home place and it's all about the Money. ..

Right on the bay, casual beach wear , fire balls on beach at night is great for the family. Good service and food is average. Limited parking, get there early, swim, enjoy the beach, have dinner, then enjoy the fireballs at night.

We went for a casual lunch after spending the morning on the beach. Service was slow, at first, but improved. Food was average. We did notice that you are entitled to a free beach chair with each main dish order, but did not know that ahead of time. First beer was warm and was sent back to be replaced. Overall,... More

Thanks to Keenan and Gina for a truly remarkable experience. We have been coming here for fourteen (14) years and found these two to be the best servers that we have encountered. We used to sit at the bar but Wanda was miserable and unfriendly and made us feel that we were not welcome. Keenan reintroduced us to great service... More

Buccaneer Bar is a good place to hang with friends, have some fun and get good food. We always stop by once or twice during each visit. It also has a nice beach for hanging out during the day.
