We like the place. Service is slow and it's a bit pricey but it's ocean front and if you like drinking and watching waves on the beach, it's worth it.

My only concern was it was a Friday evening and fairly busy (live music and perfect weather will do that) and I wanted to get our drink orders in before the end of happy hour. Had a special of 2 rum drinks for $6 that were very tasty and the food was even better. I was dining with my mom... More

My husband and I visited the beach bucket and ordered two beers, we didn't get them for about 15 minutes. I counted four servers working the outdoor patio and eight tables with customers. Our server never came back to our table so I walked into the bar to grab a couple more beers. Still nothing from our server. I do... More

I had high hopes for this beachside grill but as soon as we walked in we were overwhelmed by odiferous fish. Like you just stuck your head in a bait bucket filled with gnarly Mullet. The menu is weird, pork nachos? Anyway, great location, great service, not so great food. Skip and go to Riptide across parking lot.

Went there for lunch and were shocked by the prices... Food is not worth the over inflated prices. If it's seafood you want, then either Aunt Catfish's or DJ's in Port Orange are literally 40-50% cheaper..

Great view, cute bar, awesome outside patio for drinks and happy hour. Average bar food. If they focused a little more on mastering a real burger, improving their wings, and getting fresh fish (not frozen) they would be rockin'.

Nice beach front spot. We grabbed lunch here during a day at the beach and the food and drinks were good. The fish tacos were nicely done as was the pina colada!

My husband and I have visited twice and each visit (breakfast and dinner) was fun, tasty and so enjoyable as we sat right on the beach front patio. Umbrellas protect from sun; servers are friendly and efficient and the food/drinks are good.

Small interior, large patio area on the ocean. Great drinks and happy hour. A great place to "waste another day away"(Kenny Chesney). Try the fish tacos and the fish and chips, both excellent choices.
