Thank goodness the seaweed invasion is over and you can get burgers to go and walk to the beach for a lovely picnic watching the big boats go up the intercostal waterway. We adore the double meat bacon cheese burger with jalapeños! Also the fried jalapeño slices are terrific. The staff is great and the belly laughs of restaurant patrons... More

We all enjoyed the good food. My sister lives at Surfside and she said all of the restaurants are well know for their really good food. We tried a lot of them and we certainly agree.

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.

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
