Laid back and casual

We visited for dinner. Food was good. Ordered shrimp burger and southern burger. Both were good. They had music which wasn't too loud and was entertaining. Lots of dogs there. One continued to bark beside us which was annoying after a while. Service was good and did not rush us. Overall, we liked... read more

The night we went to Rita's it was a little windy out, but we wanted to be outdoors. We chose Rita's because they had the windows wide open so we could enjoy the outdoors, but with a little less wind. They had an awesome band playing on the patio and even sitting indoors we could see and hear! We started... More

The giant order of nachos is fantastic! It was a surprise to see watermelon salsa on the nachos but it was sooo good! The shrimp and grits are very good and the shrimp and fish tacos were also excellent. Great place to sit outside and listen to live music. Service was also great each time we went.

I went with my friends to Rita's last week, and it was amazing! This neighborhood place was pretty great. We walked in and there was a tiny wait, and then we were seated in less than 2 minutes. The waitress was great. She was accommodating, polite, sweet, and conversational. She explained everything thoroughly and even split the check into 5... More

The location of this cute place would be enough for it to survive ; just having a beverage and watching the folk come back from the beach is the epitome of people watching , the best ! But they also provide very good food … fresh raw oysters and shrimp ! And the manager made sure to ask if all... More

Went here for lunch on two occasions during a recent family holiday. Good service and pleasant surroundings, especially recommend the back patio. We recommend the catfish and also the chop salad - fresh and tasty.

Excellent and fun place to eat. Right across the street from the beach - fun atmosphere and outstanding food. Highly recommend the smoked wings - they were some of the best I've ever eaten. In addition, shared nachos for a dinner entree on our second visit and they were fantastic!
