Great food and atmosphere

After a week at the beach, I was in the mood for steak and potatoes. Someone recommended the Beached Whale's prime rib. It did not disappoint. Friendly service, good prices.

We opted to sit on rooftop and though it was still hot, there was a lovely breeze. My 2 boys enjoyed a burger and grilled cheese from kids menu and loved the frisbees they were served on that they could keep. My shrimp fajitas were delicious along with a Margarita to wash it down. Service was good and friendly, worth... More

Went along for a look to see if it was for us. As a thunderstorm hit we stayed. Good decision. It is like a bar with tables and food. Service is excellent, with friendly staff. menu quite extensive with a good choice of seafood and local dishes.

We enjoyed lunch here on a Sunday (grouper sandwich, great!) And came back on Monday night for live music. We had a fun time! The band was taking requests and let us sing along with a suprise appearance by a rocking banana tambourine. Great beers on tap too... we might go back on this trip :)

Love the open air upstairs, food is so so. But it is made up by the atmosphere. Nice pours on drinks and lots of freindly locals and visitors.

My friends and I visited this past weekend and spent both nights there! Our server was Junior and he was awesome! Had a great time on the rooftop deck with food and drinks. Great music downstairs too! We had a blast here!
