“Great fish tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Great fried green tomatoes. They only have beer and wine. Wish they got a little nicer wine. Staff is great. Go almost weekly on ladies night

“Live music and friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was a great place to sit on the patio with your family and enjoy the ocean breeze. There was live music and it's right near a draw bridge which was super exciting for the kids. Food is good and so is the drink / beer selection.

“Fish tacos and 25 cent beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

This restaurant is on the beach side of the North Causeway in NSB. They have live entertainment and random times during the weekend. Surfing videos play nonstop inside, lots of fun to watch. Fish tacos were great, wings were pretty good and not too hot. They have a deal where you buy a cup for $2 and then if the bridge goes up they fill the cup for 25 cents. Pretty good deal if your timing is good!

“My Mother's Day - Restaurant Request”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We selected Gnarly as our Mother's Day restaurant outing and were happy we did! No long lines - got right in and were quickly seated. My husband had french toast with fresh strawberries (breakfast was served thru 1pm on Sunday) and I had the fish tacos for lunch. I loved the crispy slaw and tasty sauce on my entree. Our friends loved their chicken wings, gator bites and chicken sandwich. The $2 mimosas were too good to pass by on Mother's Day so we indulged ourselves. Easy to have a conversation as we were seated at a picnic style table. My girlfriend's husband loved when the drawbridge (near the restaurant) went up and he enjoyed the .25 cent beer deal!

“too bad it's not located on the beach...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

What a great restaurant, but it really should be at the shoreline given the decor and atmosphere of the place. They only serve beer and wine concoctions, no hard liquor. The food is fresh and very tasty and we were a party of 12 when we went and had very good service.
