We stopped here for the view and the raw bar. The view is superior compared to the southernend of OB. We were seated as soon as we walked up but chose the bar for our snacks. The tender was helpful and attentive and we had a good time talking to other patrons of the slippery clams and oysters... read more

This place is a trip!! Came here with my friends and when we saw that we could get cocktails in mugs that we could keep, we knew we would have a great time! Not to mention the nice wait staff and comfortable atmosphere. Back to the mugs, we almost wanted to start a collection! They were $10 a piece which... More

We dined inside in the aircon but had great water views. Fast and friendly service. Food was delicious and well priced for the area. Highly recommended.

We were a party of 14: 7 adults, 6 young teens and 1 toddler. We we were seated in five minutes and had drinks in ten. Our waitress was sweet, fast and attentive. Every person at the table loved their meal. The bacon wrapped scallops are to die for and the fish entrees were fantastic!

The food was excellent and so was the service. We had 10 people in our group and no reservations so we were a challenge. The waitress said that she would see what she could do and came back in 5 minutes and said she could take us. The seafood was particularly good and the Mahi with spinach and artichoke was... More

We arrived to the beach a little early, so we decided to grab lunch first but had our dog with us. Since we usually visit Outer Barks, it made sense to check out this place due to the close proximity. We were pleased with our service- the waitress brought our orders outside since she knew we were eating on the... More

Lets start this review by saying I am allergic to tomatoes... ie. no pasta sauce, ketchup, raw, anything... I always tell waiters the moment I get there about this and typically they get it wrong. Fishbones really blew me away with their concern and willingness to go above and beyond to make sure I had a great meal. Their food... More

We love stopping here for steamed shrimp and awesome crab dip! The bartenders and wait staff are always friendly and attentive too! The restaurant is open even in the off-season, so it's a good place to eat when the beach crowds are gone!! They get local fresh fish too. The salads are large - enough to share. Always a good...

Started with an ice cold libation and moved to king crab legs, both of which hit the spot. The surprise came when we began noshing our hurricane burgers...they were fantastic...a burger with pulled pork, onion strings and other condiments. It was the best food I've had since coming on this trip.
