Visited back in June and received great service from Courtney. Wings were good as well as the service but it was very hot inside. My beers were not that cold and the big fan doesn't do much justice when sitting inside. A/C might be option specially during the Summer months. Next time I'll do outdoor seating since you at least... More

Went to this place on Saturday August 23, 2014. There was a sign that read..... No baggy pants / shorts No Grills (mouth wear) No sleeveless shirts To say the least, I went back on Sunday and they allowed people in without shirts. Mind you this place is on the beach. I could not believe what I saw. I was... More

Food was overcooked and overpriced. Restaurant itself was filthy - tables were gross and sticky. Service was iffy, at best. This place might call itself a restaurant, but it's really nothing more than a dive bar.

The table we got was not cleaned before we were seated there. When they cleaned it they missed some spots. We had to wait way too long (about 1 hour) for our main dishes. Food was ok. Nice view of the beach.

Food was OKAY. It's in a perfect location overlooking the water. I was there about 2 weeks ago while I was on vacation, (this was actually my second trip there). CONS: I dislike the fact that they don't display the price of their drinks on the menu, you have to ask. Drinks are served in plastic cups, for me it's... More

I was optimistic about Big Kahuna due to the rating on TripAdvisor. Wow it couldn't have been more off! Went to Big Kahuna last night around 5-6pm and it wasn't busy at all. You would think this would amount to better service, but in this case it did not. Ordered wings and two personal pizzas. The wings were not bad,... More

We went here as an alternative to LouLous as there was a wait for tables. It was a very quick trip as the place is simply grubby, you felt dirty just walking in the place, there was no chance I would have eaten there. We did sit down to have a drink, but at none of the serving staff seemed... More

Absolute worst meal of the trip. We are very easy people usually with no complaints however, this experience was awful. Our waitress was incredibly slow, as was the kitchen. Our food came out after and hour wait. It was not even busy at all. Then, my fish was completely raw and the other meals very unsatisfactory. There was a nice... More

We stopped for drinks and got in on some special. It was a phenomenal amount of drinks for a very low price.
