Very crowded and there was a wait for outside but were seated inside and could still hear the live music. Food came quickly and did not disappoint. Both the grilled Red Snapper and Mahi were were... read more

A little pricey for what you get. Ordered the teriyaki chicken which was a small portion for $18. The drinks were ok mostly juice. The mash potatoes were horrible they tasted like the powdered kind.

We said last time we were here we'd never come again, we willing never come again. Grouper sandwich$18.00 was a small bun with a piece of fish that only filled halfway. Out of lobster, waiter should have said at the beginning and service was not great. Overpriced, under serviced and mediocre food

We came here about 3 or 4 times throughout the vacation. The smoked wings are really good. If you go during happy hour its the best deal with half priced draft beers and apps. Nice spot.

Wish they knew cuts of meat. You smoke brisket and you need point cut. Smoke a flat cut and you get dry meat.

This place is interesting and very convenient to the beach but the food is just so so. The waitstaff is very good. The live music was a nice feature. We were a bit disappointed in the food and probably will not return.

Went here with our baby son. Very good service. Try the house's special pulled pork - it was great! We will definitely go back.

Great food and atmosphere during the day time. Night time crowd gets a little louder than I would like, but enjoyable.
