We popped over here when the Shuckin Shack was too full... Glad we did...the wings were great, kids had burgers, hush puppies were good and fish n chips were OK. The girls loved the singing atmosphere and music. Service was nice. I'd go again but probably as a second choice

we eat here on occasion, i have eaten the fish, burgers, wings and more and have enjoyed the portions and taste very much. a little more expensive than the typical beach shack but well worth it, wit staff pleasant and helpful (even down home humorous sometimes)

Do not make the stupid mistake to think this joint is worth visiting because they can pay the rent to stay on the CB strip. The staff and service are lacking of any skill set that would keep a third world deep fried gizzard gut street stall open in Zimbabwe . Stay away from this rat infested kip , and... More

The wait after ordering was extremely long. The worst fish and chips I ever had. They were more like McDonalds chicken nuggets but with fish... i think......it was had to tell cause they were so dry. The chicken fingers were rubbery and the fries were not that great. Aside from the roll, which my wife said was stale, the hamburger... More

As a scuba diver The Dive was a fun atmosphere with lots of fun things to discover on the walls while we were waiting. The wait was a little long as they were understaffed on an unexpectedly busy off-season night. The burgers were totally worth the wait. The fries were good but not too special. The homemade chips are worth... More

What a genius name and beachside double entendre – The Dive refers to both the unpretentious atmosphere and the SCUBA theme. Wow! Cheap beers and drinks, friendly bartenders and a Pachinko-like game that could win you a T-shirt. Don't miss the burgers, though (all available in quarter- and half-pound versions, and skip the fries in favor of the homemade chips fresh... More
