Try the grouper

I was really surprised about this place, it's way better than just a beachside stand. My husband enjoyed his burger, and I got the fried grouper. Perfect spot for lunch during a beach day adventure.

Agree with the review that describes this as overpriced fast food but its mire like overpriced food bought at walmart or publix.

Had 2 hot dogs and fries and one soft drink for 16$. Sausage served on a cold bun (not steamed, toasted or butterred) Had to put all the dressings ourselves from tiny enveloppes...very messy... Bring your lunch if you are going to the beach.

Thanks for your review. We're so sorry your Hotdog wasn't steamed and/or buttered , We warm our buns before they're served though. How did you like the way the top of the sausage was cut ? Cool eh !!! Next time you're here please ask for Tony and I'll make sure you get the very best hotdog you've ever eaten... More

Staying nearby Tigertail, we decided the last lunch of our holiday would be a stop the nearby Tigertail Beach Cafe. It was okay: a large, industrial-style cheeseburger,some wedge chips (all defrosted) and a drink set us back $45. You fetch the food from the kitchen window yourself and tote it out the tables, most of which have shade. Also and... More

We went to Tigertail beach to spend the afternoon, and after shelling for a few hours realized we hadn't brought any snacks! No big deal, this lovely beach restaurant was there! Chicken tenders were fresh and juicy, homemade potato chips were crisp and delicious, and the chicken salad croissant was great - made with tarragon I think?!? Enjoyed our lunch... More

Stopped for a quick lunch - had the veggie wrap. Absolutely delicious! Pleasantly surprised. I did hear it was good, but was happy to confirm it. The homemade potato chips were awesome as well! It's such a peaceful atmosphere in which to dine. Don't bother packing a lunch when you go to the beach - eat here!
