Be prepared to wait

Must try sweet potato fries with cinnamon/sugar, honey and balsamic vinegar! Batter dipped fish chips good - generous serving of both; inexpensive. Crowded, noisy with long wait on a Saturday night. Family friendly. Two unisex bathrooms with lines.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the North Beach Bar & Grill. We thought the entree sized seared tuna salad (fresh, green spinach) and the asparagus crab salad were delicious with a side of grilled pita bread. They have some very good daily beer specials too. We sat on the deck and the combination of the nice weather, mild sea... More

This place has great atmosphere, and the staff is very friendly and caring. Like this evening, it can get extremely busy, but they handle the crowds very well. Food is good and great portions, so no one leaves wanting more. Great appetizers and drinks. It is on the beach, so dress is very casual. Inside and outside dining space available.

Food is excellent and drinks are well poured. Food sometime takes a little while but so do the finer things in life. Plus your at the beach, why would you ever be in a rush? Too many people forget they leave the mainland to get away from the hustle and bustle. So relax and enjoy yourself.

Local bar and grill right at the beach access with good food and drinks. Only place really to eat or drink around the lighthouse and public beach. The burgers were huge! Took leftovers to the beach in the cooler. Inside or outside seating, service was quick, restrooms inside for patrons.

Laid back atmosphere, live music, indoor or outdoor seating, great bar and very good food. Caesar salad with fried oysters and jerk chicken salad are fresh and delicious. Can also vouch for rock fish and crab cakes. Collard greens and bacon dip appetizer too bland for us. Overall a great experience and we will definitely recommend and return

This place has outdoor seating on the deck and live music. But it doesn't look like it is going to have anything other than regular bar food. What a surprise to discover the food is expertly prepared and delicious. Nothing we had is what we expected. A real treat.

Technically I guess this should be called the North Beach Parking Lot Grill, since it sits next to the beach lot. No view of the ocean, but definitely has that laid back beach grill vibe. The crab cakes, jerk pork and chicken, and sides were all very good. Lots of locals and tourist, dressed for the beach or the evening... More

If you love seafood but are tired of fried shrimp, this is the place to go. They have a smallish menu of unusual items. We loved the seafood fritters appetizer, the escovitch (a whole fried fish done Jamaican) and the Jerk Chicken. They had a live blues band on the deck. Most of the seating is outdoors and it's heavenly.
