Great happy hour spot. I have eaten here twice, most recently, Saturday night for happy hour. Corona and a local beer were on special, $3.50 for a draft. Steamed shrimp were on special for 15 CENTS per shrimp. SO CHEAP. My boyfriend had a Corona, a Cold Rock Cider, and 40 steamed shrimp. I had a glass of White Zin... More

Place was not overly busy. Ordered fish tacos and shrimp basket( note: daughter asked Megan how shrimp was cooked) . She wrote nothing down on pad sticking out of... More

Fish Heads is a 'must go to' if you just want to hang out at the beach and enjoy great food and always friendly service! All you have to do is look at all the pix and you'll see what we mean. We often go during "Happy Hour" when the spicy, steamed shrimp are just 15 cts each + the... More

I went here with a group of new friends and it was the perfect choice! We just ordered appetizers and drinks. The service was fast and friendly. The music was great and the ocean was our back drop! Would go here again for sure!

Food is fantastic!! Went on two occasions this trip and both times the food and service were spot on. The views are spectacular. On our second trip, we were able to watch quite a few Dolphins playing in the ocean! Being on the pier affords you the opportunity to watch the fisherman as well. You never know what you might...

We first heard about Fish Heads on the radio where the locals gather. My friends and I were looking for a good night life experience and we sure found it here! Live music by Johnny Waters and Company and Jamie Pridgen. So many beers on tap, extremely friendly servers and a sweet beach atmosphere (not to mention its oceanfront on... More
