By the menu alone, I want impressed with this place, and t was practically desolate, however there was a 30-40min wait at coconut joes so we reluctantly went back to cabana banana or what ever this...

We called in a big order to take back to the condo. We stuck to the fried seafood, but it was all pretty good. The place has really nice outside seating with a great view, and it was all in the shade. The guy at the bar HAD to be the inspiration for the old bartender in Cocktail. This place... More

Either for lunch or dinner stop by and get your fill of seafood or whatever you'd like. Right off the beach serving loud puppies and a good assortment of seafood. Our favorite was the seafood burrritto. Also loved the shrimp and scallop dish

Pretty cool place for a quick lunch break from beach. Great mixed drinks a bit pricy. Fried shrimp platter is ok, not sure if it was fresh, I would hope so but had a bit of frozen taste.

My husband and I had lunch there during our visit to Isle of Palms. I had the crab cake sandwich and he had the flounder basket. We also go the "loud puppies" which is their version of hush puppies. My crab cake sandwich was pretty greasy and didn't seem to be made in house, probably frozen and heated up. It... More

It was about what you would expect for a beach front restaurant. Good atmosphere and selection. The loud hush puppies were good and so was the banana daiquiri.

Food was overcooked and the oil it was cooked in obviously needed to be changed. Besides the food was overcooked. The entertainment was nice but does not make up for the poor quality food.

We loved this beach bar. The drinks were awesome and so was the food! We went at 3 in the afternoon so there was no wait. The service was great too!

Terrible. Do not go here! Would be better off some where else. Our food was not good. The service was slow. Ordered some frozen drinks that were watered down with no liquor. And the "manager" we talked to was also a complete #*&%. Can't believe how this place does business like this.
