A group of my friends and I went on a weeks stay in Carolina beach. We had gone to the dive a majority of our time. Food wise, we only had burgers. Probably one of the best burgers I've ever had. Don't forget to tip your cooks as well as wait/bar staff! Atmosphere was laid back and comfortable. I'd seen... More

Too bad they're not allowed to make them more rare, but still a great burger. I pigged out with the 8 oz version as did hubby. His mom got the smaller 4 oz one, which was more than enough for her. It comes with really good homemade potato chips. The food took awhile to get to us, but was well... More

We have been eating the wings there for years, mostly honey barbecue, and they are (almost) always very good. We like that they are grilled after being fried, and are among the best anywhere. Also, the fish tacos are really good, although more of a wrap than a taco.

I have been here before and the fish tacos is worth the wait. The waitress is also the bartender, did not get her name but she had dark hair and was very nice

As far as overall atmosphere, this place is definitely a dive. The food as decent, two of the five if us enjoyed the meal. The turkey wrap and the shrimp wrap were both good, not great, just average. The most notable flavor in all the dishes, the appetizers, the fries, the chips, the chicken breast sandwich, practically everything, was SALT.... More
