I came to this restaurant on Christmas because it was one of the only places open. It was super busy! We ended up sitting at the bar and having a margarita while eating some french fries and watching the people and ocean. I really liked it.

The view of the Gulf and the beach is great for those visiting the area, but nothng to write home about. The food is brought to your table and condiments are self serve. The attitude of the staff varies as some days are great others not so great. The beach rentals also are pricey as is the gift shop for... More

When one finds a restaurant boasting good qualities: friendly, clean, good food and welcoming waiters, the odds are, one will return. So we did, on a cloudy, cool and windy Friday night, taking relatives for a 51st surprise anniversary dinner. Gary, our waiter, was exceptional, clearly detailing the specials. Not only that, our singing waited presented an anniversay dessert, something... More

Who knew that a take out of sorts could be fun and old Florida tasty. Our order taker was a gem with a sense of humor and sense of service. Our food while not gourmet, was fresh and tasty. We had poached eggs, grits and ham, weird but delicious. Plastic tables but pottery coffee mugs. Just fun on a warm... More

Good place for a quick bite on the beach. Step up to the counter and order your food and they bring it to your table. Sandwiches, wraps, salads. Mostly outdoor seating. Reasonable prices.

We had lunch on the Holmes Beach, Beach Cafe. What a surprise. It's outside ordering and eating just like you'd think at a beach, but the food was amazing! Large portions and cooked just right. Even though it was a cloudy day it was still the perfect spot! You can come in your bathing suit or whatever. We'll definitely go... More

Well I just had coffee here but the all you can eat pancake breakfast for $6 looks like the big deal here. Everything is self service including filling your take out cup or coffee mug with coffee. The outdoor restaurant is right on the beach and next to a gift shop...parking is free...what more could you want if all you're... More

Had hubby's 60th surprise party here last night & it was fantastic! Got appetizers from menu & guests bought their meals & everyone was happy, from Fish & Chips to Greeks Salads...everyone raved about their food. Service was great; they have some really hard workers.
