GET THE BURGER!!!!

I would recommend there burger with onion rings! I'm not fond of buffet style breakfast but didn't have a choice this last time. I'm an over-easy egg type of person. There breakfast service USED to be slow before they got the buffet style breakfast.

I had proble,s at the restaurant which lead to me speaking to the Manager. She was more than rude. Come to find out, talking to others in town, this is apparently a commen complain with Pirates Alley. I won't ever return and will share my story with anyone that I hear might be considering visiting. Don't Go!

Awesome place - you can hangout at the beach and just walkover for food and drinks. The food is just as awesome as the location!

Took forever to get service started but once we got their attention they were faster. Dont go here for any good food, costs about 10 for every item and quality is not greatest however have a great view so thats what counts. Margaritas tasted like all mixer, poor quality for high prices...

My table waited an hour and half for our food...And only 2 out of the 6 people got their food...ORDERS wrong. LONG wait. RUDE management, We complained about wanting to leave because of the long wait time and the lady manager gave us a rude reply of "well I guess we'll have to comp a few items". WHAT ITEMS LADY??!!...

It's true that the view is the thing here. The food is OK and the beer is cold, but indoor or out you do get a front row seat on the Gulf. The stag is very friendly and accommodating as well.

A great view can enhance any experience. I don’t care if it’s a simple day in the park, an outdoor concert, or anything else- a nice bit of scenery can make the ordinary extraordinary and it is precisely the view that led me to visit Pirate’s Alley Café in Surfside Beach. I just visited Surfside Beach for the first time... More

The waiter was a little absent minded. They ran out of lettuce and buns. Also the menu online doesn't match what they serve. No club sandwich. 😕
