We came on Halloween and the staff seemed more interested in costumes and partying than us. The fries were limp and greasy the shrimp seemed under cooked. The burger was good.

We have our Friday night date night every week during season at the Tiki Bar. We've met many new friends at this location, from near and far. The service is fantastic....Heather is always accommodating. The selection of light fare is also excellent.

This place was right next to our hotel and looked really cool so we had a late lunch there. The food was not good. I had the arugula, beet and goat cheese panini and is was weird. Had a soggy feeling and no flavor really. Not what I expected and not that good. The fries were great thou. My husband... More

We got there after 3:00pm so by the time we unpacked and freshened up, we went here for an early dinner. It's located next to the hotel, which made it convenient, as we didn't want to have to drive after being on the road over 6 hours. I was disappointed with the menu as it was limited . The server...

The food is OK but the service is very nice and the view is great. The fish tacos need a bit more spice. The crab soup taste like it is made from Campbell's tomato soup.

Although there is a nice view from the restaurant of the water I was not impressed with all the other aspects of the place. We stopped for dinner one early evening. The Tiki Bar was full of people who had been sitting in the sun and drinking all day. Never a good mix in my book. We ordered from the... More

On certain Saturday and Sunday afternoons/evenings, some excellent bands get booked at this outdoor venue. It's pretty great: set on a short pier that ends at the ocean waves it's a beachside bar attached to the Ocean Grill and some sort of a condo/resort complex, it's open to the public and gives bar access from the public beach that has...
