Food is good but not for kids!

The food took a long time to arrive but was well worth the wait as it was delicious. The won ton nachos are incredible. The only downsides to this place are 1. The waitress seemed annoyed we had kids in there at 7pm and 2. Their sweet tea is horrible. This is a bar atmosphere I would not take my... read more

Its bar food, but it has an awesome seafood cobb salad that keeps me coming back. Waitstaff always seems unpleasant, never overfriendly for sure. Its nice that they have games , ping pong tables, etc for the kids to play. Nice beer selection. Not too expensive.

We wanted a quick snack so we stopped in for a bite. We were surprised to find a great happy hour! All the apps on the dinner menu were half off til 7. (Not sure when the specials start. I forgot to ask) We had the nachos banks. We did it without chicken. The nachos are actually fried wontons. It... More

This is a restaurant and bar with American pub style food. Great brunch. The waffle clubber with a mimosa is a great way to start the day. Bottom line food is good, prices are good. The best part tourists don't realize its here so best place to go on the beach during the summer season.

We were a little skeptical about eating here since its a pub because we have a baby. We went around dinner time and it was just like a normal rest. i guess the atmosphere changes the later it gets. We got fried pickles and chips for appetizers they were awesome. We also got cheese steak sandwiches and i must say... More

I've been going here since the place was opened. They have reformed and adjusted their menu several times so don't be surprised to see different items if you spend much time between visits. I have seen Higher end Entrees and simple but delicious bar food. The burgers are solid, The clun sandwich is always a late night favorite of mine,... More

We love this restaurant! I can say Ive tried ALOT of food here (even their specials) and have never been disappointed, but the shrimp and grits is to die for!!! The chicken zingers are my second fav (when I'm not in the mood for a whole entree). I get em with the "rock chalk" sauce. They always have a variety... More

My wife, sister in-law, and I ate here this weekend for the first time. The atmosphere was real nice and the service was very good. We all liked our meals except that the Hamburger tasted more like Meatloaf (with breadcrumb fillers) than a pure meat burger.Not bad, just could have been a little better. Otherwise all was very good.

We eat here every Saturday or Sunday morning. I noticed the tripadvisor sign in the restaurant yesterday and realized we love this place and I had never written a review. I have pancakes and my husband has eggs, etc. The people are wonderful and the food is great. We don't eat out a lot at night, but when we do,... More
