We stopped recently as both our previous visits last year were very good. What a disappointment! We ordered the burgers again and they definitely were not worth going back for. The burgers were not cooked properly (well-done) and were very pink in the middle. They tried to correct the problem, but still didn't get it right. The service was good,... More

Geat outdoor seating wooden gliders with umbrellas. Food is average, but pretty good. Staff is friendly. Nice place to take older kids for outside dining.

Once again, I left completely full, with leftovers, and money still in my wallet. The outside eating area is really nice with it's swinging tables and fountain. The staff is very kind and actually take the time to talk to you. BP is now a staple in my OC visits!

We have stopped here in the past for drinks, decided to have lunch this time. The portions were generous and the sandwiches delicious. My only complaint was I ordered a cup of soup and was brought a bread bowl of soup. They did acknowledge this but still charged me for the more expensive portion.

Average restaurant at best. Gift shop didn't take any credit cards or debit, no notice posted except at cash register when paying. Staff sat at table having their lunch and chatting while we waited for them to check on us. Food was ok, but nothing spectacular!

A busy place with a lot of noise (sports bar) and good food if you're looking for burgers and such. I had a prime rib sandwich. The meat was flavorful, but very fatty. Spouse had crab cakes which he said were the best he's ever had. Fries are extra, and other offerings include some other fast food type items, and... More

Every time we go to OC this is the first place we hit after arriving. Fun, great food, gets us in the beach mood. Love the swinging tables and the water misters when it's really hot outside.

This place has a fun environment. I love sitting outside on the swinging booths. Those are wonderful. The food is good, I like the buffalo chicken wrap. The service is good, but they are always busy. Make sure to get there early because you will be waiting.

Best crab cakes, atmosphere and bang for your buck! The crab cakes are almost all lump crabmeat with very little filler. Drinks are good too. Staff is nice and attentative.
