Awesome view, good food

It wasn't quite what we expected, but it was quite enjoyable! My husband really liked his burger. We sat outside and the view was awesome. Only annoyance was someone on their motorcycle going back and forth, but that's not the restaurants fault in anyway. The fried pickles are a huge serving, and... read more

Really great place to stop for a solid, quality burger. Staff was informative and attentive. Paper towel rolls on each table is a great idea-- can get quite messy and sometimes a small napkin doesn't cut it. Beautiful view of the water with great open air seating on a patio. I would definitely come back!

Happy hour is ON POINT. Got a Pina Colada that was served in coconut shell... And I have always wanted that. Ever since I started watching Gilligans Island. Now I just need to figure out how to make a radio out of coconuts..... I have not tried the food but it looked gooood. The service made it lose a little... More

Me and my husband came here for dinner. It was during the weekday so it wasn't over crowded. There are different sections so it kind of depends on what your there for. We came to eat! So you get in a line to place your order and then you can sit anywhere you like. They let you know when to... More

It is one of my favorite watering holes on the island. It is 4 different places to drink and eat rolled into one. Great Margaritas in the back bar, Squeeze. Great view and rum drinks upstairs at Rum Shack. The first floor original Spot has cold beer and great atmosphere if you want to watch any ball game or sport.... More

We were there during a busy lunch and a lot of tables had not been cleared and cleaned. Found a table with a view of the beach, which was nice. Service was okay. The waffle fries were very good, as were the hamburgers. Poboy was average, not much taste. We were overcharged for 2 drinks we didnt order. Okay, but... More
