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

There isn't much in Surfside, so we were not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Got a nice table with ocean breeze and view. Service was outstanding - our waitress was honest and helpful. The food was good - bacon cheese ranch fries, spinach artichoke dip, fish tacos, onion rings - all were good. Kids menu was really...

Love the food and atmosphere. It's nice to see the place get a new paint job. It's a great place for gathering friends. Love that it is right by the beach. Surfside is truly a great place to relax and enjoy.

It was Friday night and super crowded, so we had plenty of time to enjoy the fabulous view! I think you can eat inside but the open deck is the way to go! The waitress was super friendly and our orders were all correct. I had fish tacos and they were pretty yummy. My daughter had a burger and the... More

We found PAC staff to be very friendly and attentive. The PAC has excellent breakfast sliders, as well as hamburgers for lunch/dinner. You can get your order to go and then proceed to the beach to eat, which is what we preferred, Although we ate several dinners at the cafe, we would probably not do so again. The late meals... More

Everything we had was the way we ordered it and the service was great. I wish there had been more healthy options and more seafood given the beachfront location.
