Completely generic food and poor service.

During the summer, we decided to come here for dinner and enjoy the view. While being eaten by little mosquitos throughout the night on the upper deck, we were served literally "restaurant pack" food you which had no real taste. Additionally, the server we had was non attentive and went MIA for... read more

Came in with my boyfriend at 9PM on a Friday night and the bar was busy but the restaurant was clearing out. After the waitress took our drink order, she looks at me and says "well, I am going to have to see your ID." Not sure if she thought she was going to bust me for being underage as... More

Good place, good food and drink. Nice bartenders and staff - great view on the water. The Bartenders do not seem to know what the kitchen does. We have had shrimp cocktail(not on the menu) many times, but this bartender only would work with what on the menu. We do NOT blame her and there is no indictment here. Just... More

My sister and I came here for lunch during a quick beach visit. Our hostess and server were very nice and polite. Service was fast but we didn't feel rushed. We each had the lobster roll. YUM. Very good. Nice big chunks of lobster. Not a skimpy amount. We enjoyed our meal on the 2nd floor deck. I would definitely... More

Was up for Seafood Festival, and made the Boardwalk our home away from rented home for lunch, relaxing and football. I must highly recommend the Awesome Margarita - ole!

After trying a new restaurant on the beach, and having a less than pleasant meal, we went back to our old favorite, Boardwalk Cafe and Pub. We weren't disappointed. I had the baked stuffed shrimp, baked potato, onion rings, and veggies. My favorite when I'm at the beach. Absolutely delicious. Service was fast and friendly. This is the only restaurant... More

We had lunch on the second floor open bar on a sunny afternoon. The food was good and Jess, the bartender, was great. We had sandwiches and a drink and enjoyed all of it. A fun place to hang out and look at the ocean and people strolling by!

I had to be convinced to return to boardwalk cafe. I had an unpleasant visit last summer due to a rude host. My family enjoyed their meal earlier this summer and wanted me to try it again. Well I am happy I listened. We sat upstairs at bar and had a blast. Sarah gave us a warm welcomed. The view... More
