This is a great little place to grab a burger or some fried seafood. The staff is very friendly and the food is good. The server even brought my 1 year old some baby puffs to snack on while waiting on our meal.

We picked up food to go - Burger was very good. Shrimp PoBoy was rather plain. Just a hometown bar/café. Decent food, not much atmosphere inside.

we went for breakfast and this place was awesome! It was inexpensive and a good portion of food. They only offer breakfast on sat & sun but it was great!

Biscuits & gravy and grits. Need I say more? Next time I will skip the coffee though and stick with the orange juice. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

We dropped in for lunch while at the beach. It's very relaxed and casual. Jukebox has lots of great country and old rock. Service is friendly. Food was average - shrimp seemed fresh. Cheese sticks with marinara were pretty standard. They were out of fried mushrooms. Adults had shrimp po-boys, shrimp basket. Fries were good. Kids ate off kids' menu:... More

I've been going to the Purple Cow for 30 years and it's still the best food for the money on the coast! This visit I was with my grandsons, one of which is a very picky eater. Even he said the grilled cheese was better than we make at home! That's a compliment! The service was excellent, too! I'll never... More

Very good food and great relaxed atmosphere. A can't miss when in Surfside Service is great. Fun for the ladies with the pic in the restroom so be wary of what is under the board. It's fun.

Don't be in a hurry; don't expect fine dining - but do expect good food, good, drinks and the sweetest staff you could imagine. They have so many walking around, taking orders, refilling your coffee - just some super super sweet people - can't stress that enough here. Breakfast on the weekends - fast and good - eggs, bacon -... More

As always, we stopped in to see Kitty when we got back from fishing. The burgers are always great. Coldest beer, and the friendliest service on the beach. You will never be treated like a stranger here.
