Great fish tacos... Next will eat indoors as the flys are annoying. But the tacos totally worth it and fish and chips good as well

We had a great dinner at Uncle Ike's! The kids menu is very extensive and tasty. My husband and I enjoyed our meals- seafood platter and seafood Mac n cheese. Our server was friendly and attentive. Our only complaint was the bar area was loud as the night went on.

A local recommended Ike's for the Firecracker Shrimp, so we stopped in for lunch to give it a try. Our waiter, Adam, couldn't have been better! He set us up with a game of corn hole while our food was being prepared. He also recommended a pick up game of soccer later that evening. Got the feeling like this was... More

We had a party of three that visited Uncle Ike's in August, 2014. I called ahead around 5:30 on Thursday and asked about the wait time. They indicated that there was not a wait at the present time but that there would be later. We arrived and had our choice of outdoor or indoor seating and chose to eat indoors.... More

We were seated immediately which was great with a toddler. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We had the crab dip, the bangin shrimp, wings, the spinach salad, nachos, and that's all I can remember... Quick, efficient, and friendly service! It was one of our top favorites for the week!

I was very surprised with the quality of my seafood and steak platter. The crab cake was lump crabmeat and the steak was very tender. The shrimp were delicious . Would return on a heartbeat and order the identical dinner just a wee it pricey but typical for resort areas. $27 plus tax and tip.

I can't imagine anyone saying the food and help was bad. My husband and I enjoyed everything about the place. The chicken wings smothered in crab meat were outstanding. Locals you should be ashamed of yourselves by putting down a place of business where you live. Tell the owners personally your greviences and let them work it out. You should... More

After reading the reviews, we were excited for our dinner. Don't eat outside, the flies will drive you nuts. And there were two nice dogs tied up at the entrance to the restaurant and they were harmless until another passerby and their dog walked by. The growling and barking was insane and the owners/employees didn't seem to care! Very strange... More

Uncle Ike's is quaint bar and bistro tucked behind the shopping center across from the lighthouse. The staff was awesome! Friendly and speedy. The menu was unique and expansive. Seafood nachos were great! The Fried shrimp was fresh and light. They even have crab covered hot wings. Great made from scratch children's menu. They have karaoke a few nights per... More

We decided to wait out the 45 mn line, and we were not disappointed! Great atmosphere, good quality kids' meals (no Kraft dinner here!!!), and a great selection of starters, salads and main courses. We had the firecracker shrimp and meaty wings to start, and almost could have stopped there the portion sizes were so big! All 5 in our... More
