Nice quiet meal - good service - good food.

This was our second visit to the Surf Club. It is a very personal type of eating establishment. The bar tender was very friendly and Melanie, our server, was very nice and attentive to our needs. We enjoyed the Surf Chips and Potato Boats for appetizers. Both were very good. Our first entrée was... read more

Sundays the owner works the bar. makes a great chicken panini, and will do whatever he can even if the kitchen is closed to get you what you want. However every other time I have stopped in to eat the food was horrible, along with the service.

The bar is a horseshoe shape and conversation across the bar with people you have just met flows. We had a drink here every evening and every night was fun. The bar staff encourage chat between the customers and the music is good to. We will be visiting this little gem again when we return.

Hands down my favorite place to have lunch when I am down the beach. Food is always good. My friends say they have the best Cuban in the area. Love all the bartenders esp Jessica and Maureen.

I ordered fried shrimp which tasted good but the chef forgot to take off some... More

I went here with a couple friends last night... HORRIBLE service. We sat at the bar, the bartender who was an older man, was rude beyond belief. We ordered a drink and asked him what his name was so we could get his attention and when we asked he shot back, "why do you want to know" in the rudest... More

We stopped here everyday. There are great drink specials, especially on Sunday. We also have a chance to meet some very interesting people. It is always a different crowd.

Everyone got their food before me and another person and when we finally got our burgers after everyone was done eating, they were cooked wrong! We both ordered the... More

We were here in 2012 and had a great time -- cold drinks, good food and great service. So, we came back when we were vactioning this January. How things have changed. While the service was friendly enough, the drink prices seemed a little high and the food was disappointing. Both of our meals were not very good. I had... More
