Good Food & Drink on the Gulf. Maybe A Bit Overpriced

This friendly restaurant and bar is owned and operated by the Atamanchuk family, well established in the area. The location is directly across the road from the Gulf of Mexico and the indoor/outdoor food and drink is convenient to beachgoers. There are four establishments in a short distance... read more

We stopped in for an early dinner. My husband had the Hogfish which he really liked, I had the Grouper Fingers, fries & coleslaw. I liked it but the coleslaw was swimming in sauce. It's a little pricey but worth the beach view. Staff was prompt & friendly. We would eat there again & maybe try happy hour from 3-6

Casual dining across from the main public beach. We walked here from our condo at Sunburst. Busy at night and they had live music. Always busy with the locals too.

Great atmosphere at the bar from 5-6pm - scratchcard for each drink, one $11 round cost me $1 - perfect The restaurant menu is decent, mostly seafood. We shared two starters (one after the other - pulled pork nachos followed by boom boom shrimps) whilst grazing, waiting for a thunderstorm to end. However, it turned out to be exactly what... More

Lunchtime salads are second to none. I don't think you can beat this place for lunch!! Dessert was a swim in the gulf. Not many places can provide that!!

The food is very good. If you like beef, it's very good considering most beef from Florida is not that great. Parking is there downfall. Many people, especially locals, are there for drinks. Many parking spaces are taken and you have to park across the street at Englewood beach. There appetizers are very good. Little bit on the pricey side,... More

The salads are really a treat. They will put any of the meats on any of the salads, if you ask. Here's another hint: the grouper serving is the same in the sandwich as the dinner, so if you tell them " no roll", you get a great meal for less! But you must, must, must save room for their... More

The food is good and the 8 deserts on the menu are wonderful. The interior is in need of a little updating (a little dark inside), but the outside seating is great. Across the street from the beach. Food is not always a bargain but the Grouper sandwich is very good. The staff always treats you well.
