Group of 4 from work went to have lunch and absolutely enjoyed the view and food. We started with some chips and fresh made guacamole. Some of the better guacamole dip that I have had so very pleased with that to start off the lunch. Blackened mahi mahi fish tacos are what I ordered and the flavor was well done.... More

We really enjoyed the patio for breakfast this morning. If the weather is nice, sitting there with breakfast and 2.00 mimosa is heavenly. However, the food and service are pretty average. Not too expensive though, and the location is convenient if staying at the hotel.

We had several meals here while staying at the resort. They were all good but our favorite was the southwest chicken sandwich with cheesy bacon and ranch fries. Our waitress, Tammy, was very friendly and helpful. Although the others were nice, she was our favorite one. It was dark and too chilly to sit outside and enjoy the view but... More

Despite being out of season, this cafe was busy on a Sunday afternoon in November and the staff all had smiles on their faces. The view over the beach & sea is great and when not quite such a chilly breeze is blowing this would no doubt be a great place to while away an afternoon. We had beer, wine... More

My wife and I wanted to go see the surf and do some shelling. We had consulted Tripadvisor about our dining options and decided on this place. We chose to sit outside so we could see and hear the surf. We ordered their self described "addictive" cheesy fries and a couple beers, as well as some fish tacos and crab... More

Great place to sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean breeze. Seafood and burgers made up the majority of the menu. I had nachos and they were excellent. The food is good and the view and ambiance is even better!

Our first visit was during happy hour, which we left; 1 they don't have great food specials, and second they don't have a liquor license so it's only beer and wine. If you order a specialty drink it is made with wine and is over priced. 2 we went during breakfast the food was good but really get some better... More

Hubby had the crab cake sliders and I had fish and chips. Both were delicious! Jorge took good care of us. This is our third year vacationing on Surfside, but our first year to try the local restaurants. I don't know what took us so long! I would recommend Pirate's Alley and we will be back next year!

After checking in at the Ocean Village Hotel, we decided to get an early dinner before heading to the beach. I had the special of the day, which was blackened redfish and my boyfriend had the grilled shrimp. The redfish and the shrimp were very good and the accompanying asparagus (my favorite) was cooked to perfection. The other side offered... More
