“Great servers. Horrible experience.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

My server was amazing tried so hard. But my oyster were cold. I complained and the replacement ones were the wrong thing. That's just an app. Found out I was eating frozen fish for the "catch of the day" and you could tell. On an island boasting so much local and fresh seafood, do yourself a favor and go somewhere where the food is worth it. Very expensive for average food. Terrible chairs and cheap look all around. Had high hopes but was sorely disappointed.

“Monday Night Football!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I took a group of colleagues and spouses to this restaurant. It overlooks the marina on the second floor. We were there on Monday night and they had the football game showing with much cheering. It was more of a bar feel but we enjoyed a great dinner. The food was tasty. We had grouper crusted with crab and parmesan cheese on top. The soup was amazing. The Carolina pulled pork sandwich was also good. This place was recommended to us by the Ritz-Carlton resort.

“Great Beachy Bar & Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We went here for a couple drinks and a light lunch. We had decent margarita and hot wings. The food was decent and the service was great with really friendly staff that love to laugh and have fun while they work. Great view from the top deck.

“My type of place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Outdoor dining upstairs,view, casual, televisions, some of the best service I have had. Food was excellent! We had oysters 3 ways and fish tacos with sweet potato fries. Heard the lady next to me raving about the tuna. Don't think you can go wrong with this. Hope we have time to go back. Excellent prices on drinks, my husband had to oyster bloody marry and love it!
