Good: The fries are great and the outdoor seating is a plus! Bad: The lobster roll is simply not good. Go to the Boardwalk Grill, it's much, much better if you are craving a lobster roll. The guy at the checkout seemed a little out of it, but it was almost closing time. Ugly: Nothing.

We've been to the boardwalk at Johns Pass many times, but this was the first time we ever stopped to eat at Pirates Pub and Grub. It's a small place, but definitely worth a visit. We both ordered beer and burgers, and the burgers were among the best we've ever had. Tasted like high quality meats, and very large...I couldn't... More

It seemed wrong to be eating burgers given the sights we were seeing sitting on the boardwalk, but glad we did! Burgers were awesome and cooked perfectly, topped of with BBQ sauce, veggies, and an onion ring. Fries were average but burgers were more than worth it. One of the kids had gator bites and she enjoyed them as well.... More

The Pirates Pub and Grub was a wonderful place to eat. The safe is very nice and the view amazing. We were even able to catch sites of many dolphin playing right In front of our view from our table outside! The view is amazing to see! Recommend!!!!!

my friends and I ate there the other day. We had scallop's and grouper. Everything was delicious and our server Nicole was very friendly and experienced with giving great service. We hope to visit again soon.

Food is nasty and over priced. My sister and I ordered the calamari and fries. The fries were soggy and did not taste good. The calamari looked like onion rings, they were very rubbery and came with about 8. Way overpriced for $10! The ranch dressing tasted gross and they served pre packaged marinara that we had to peel open.... More

We sat down to enjoy a drink while looking over the bay and didnt leave for 3 hours! Partly because of the rain storm that came throught but it was a great place to wait it out. The view was beautiful. We saw dolphins and tons of pelicans. They all come in to rest on the boats against the dock.... More

My husband and I are local cooks and are well aware of the "beach food" that is offered on the Gulf. Unfortunately, we do not make the trip to John's Pass too often, mostly because the tourist make it an unpleasant experience. However, with limited time off in season, we wanted to do something different than our norm. We walked... More
