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.

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!

We stopped here after kayaking for lunch. The server recommended the chicken salad wrap. It was a large portion served with fresh cooked potato chips. This place serves beer and wine. They also offered burgers, veggie wraps, etc. nice casual counter service.

Good place to stop for an Ice Cream on the way back from the beach but it shuts down at 4pm!! Think more could be done with this place and longer hours would be a good starting point
