Good Food

Very convenient being part of the hotel. Only perk the hotel offers. Breakfast was always good and fresh. Great service and very friendly too. Dinner was also good. The view is great and plenty of outside seating and inside as well. If in the area, would come back to eat here.

I love a greasy burger and fries, and Pirates Alley delivers 100% on that. Definitely NOT health food, but worth it. We had the crab and artichoke dip (OMG with the garlic knots!) so delicious. The fish and chips were super greasy, but, again, TOTALLY worth it. Guinness batter on the cod was super tasty. The patio seating was really... More

We've made it a regular Friday night hang out. I recommend the San Antonio burger basket! Beef or Chicken it's all good. ❤️

I stopped here one evening and had some fish and chips. The food was decent and waitress was friendly and prompt. Not a bad place to enjoy the scenery.

Convenient to Ocean Village but the service is lacking and the prices are high. The food is pretty good , and you won't find a better view in Surfside. ?

There was a line but we were sat quickly, Appetizers came out and was out fast but the salsa was just Pace Picante. The server was a little slow and may have had a beach hangover... The food was good but slightly overpriced. Really Convenient to the beach.

I gave them an average rating only because their hamburgers and fries were so good. Other than that it was not a place I would return to eat if I had any other choices.

Every time I've tried to eat here, while staying at the attached hotel, they've told me they're closed. Front desk told me they're open till 8 or 9pm. At 7:30pm, we were told the kitchen is closed.

We love going here on our lunch break! It's a short drive to a nice 1 hour getaway! The menu has good choices for every type of diet or pallet! The staff is always friendly and attentive! We has Cassie as a server last week & she rocked! There is inside & outside seating.
