Tasty, but average

Nice spot on the beach. The food was just okay. My shrimp panini was smothered in bbq sauce, and the fish and chips seemed like it was fried in oil that could stand to be changed. Overall, you can do better without going far.

There are very few places that are on the beach but we found it at the beach bucket. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The choices are good the prices are good and the food is really good! We had drinks during happy hour and they had a nice band playing. We came back a few days later and had... More

From the time we first saw the waitress and she took our drink orders it took 20 minutes to get drinks. Once drinks were delivered another 20 minutes passed before she took any food order from us. This was only after someone in our party caught her walking by again and insisted she take our order. No silverware was brought... More

Right on beach. Inside or outside... We chose outside for the beach breeze and view. Prices very reasonable and food was good. Was impressed.

This local's hangout is right on the edge of the beach, behind another restaurant at Harvard and A1A. It's a great place to unwind after work or a day on the beach. The view of the Atlantic is unobstructed, and its popularity can make parking tricky. Enjoy an icy beer while your order is prepared.

I've read several reviews pertaining to their dining experience not being "so hot", Not the case for our groupie 6(5 women,1 Man). We arrived @10am, so the lunch menu was out of the question. We all had various servings from their menu and I have to let all know that there weren't any complaints from anyone. We all were chatty... More

As most reviewers have said, the view is worth it. The food, not so much. It wasn't bad, but not exceptional and not inexpensive. The service was fine. Our waiter was attentive. Would return if someone else wanted to go there.

Service was great, the view was wonderful. We loved being outside where we could watch the ocean an traffic on the beach. We enjoyed it and will be back again this October.
