Seafood chowder was very yummy. Steamed shrimp was slightly overcooked. They have a really good beer selection and waitresses were very good at serving food/drinks and checking regularly on customers.

We wanted to try a local place so decided on Lucky 12 Tavern. We ordered the build your own pizza and it was fantastic!! Had excellent flavor and the crust was perfect!! The atmosphere was cool as there were old school metal signs and old school PBR memorabilia throughout. The service was very good! I'd forgotten my glasses at the... More

Love this place! By far, favorite place at the beach! Has a menu that caters to everyone and a staff that are fun and attentive. Fried oysters are a must have! The Big Salad is my staple, dressed with their homemade citrus vinaigrette! Yum! The decor is creative and fun! Great beer selection and cocktail list! Go now!

Always a place to grab a drink, and eat some great pizza along with a menu of some very enticing menu items.

Once again my husband and I have enjoyed an AWESOME meal and friendly service. The loud, grumpy woman across the bar who was asked to stop yelling isn't quite pleased but we are happy as can be. Give this place a try and you will not be disappointed!

A quaint little sports pub that had 20 different tap beers, mainly local microbrews. It also had a food menu and a games area...pool, skeet ball, darts. There were many TVs scattered throughout the tavern for viewing your favorite sports team. Thought the beers were a little pricey.
