The Dive used to be good. Don't know what happened. 4PM on a Saturday. I ordered Fish Tacos and onion rings (they didn't have salsa & tortilla chips). My husband ordered a Cheese Steak and French fries + 2 beers. Should be simple! I had to find my server to get a 2nd beer. My meal came out first. Cold... More

Perhaps the best burger I've ever eaten, anywhere. The atmosphere is appropriate for the setting. The waitress/bartender was a real sweetheart. A real jewel in the rough! I'll be back.

This was my first experience at The Dive. Having been to CB for many years this place wasn't on my to do list. Well it certainly will be a regular stop from now on. Ordered Shrimp and Grits, they call it the house specialty and with good reason!! Some of the best I have ever eaten!! I have paid a... More

Plinko. Daily drink specials. Best wings on the island! I love the Thai chilli sauce on wings, and their homemade chips are delicious, too! Plinko quarter game and jukebox make this a fun bar. Great bartenders, too!

The burgers we had at The Dive were amazing and the chips were awesome. We made a second visit there just for the chips!

The name says it all. Don't expect gourmet dining at the plaza. Food is cheap and fried, beers are cold and there are always good drink specials. DJ is a bit farty for the weekend crowd but you can still get your groove on. Wear your bathing suit during the day and throw on a cover-up for night. This place... More

The Dive is a very friendly bar, so much so that we went to it two nights in a row. The service is great and recommended. Don't miss out on the Plinko game on one side of the bar (bring quarters).

We placed a take out order on the phone. I had to ask a couple questions about the wings because that part of the menu was not listed on their website. Or at least we couldn't see it from our phones. Two of us tried and all that came up was the sandwiches. We also checked Facebook and couldn't find... More

We stopped in this restaurant during a walking tour. The restaurant was not ready for us and we had a long wait for the food. While the place is cluttered and had a funny smell, the fish taco was absolutely amazing. While the over abundance of decorations could be overlooked, the odor inside the restaurant made it unpleasant. This place... More
