“Overpriced, weak drinks and ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I would give this new place at Carolina Beach an average for food and atmosphere and below average for their drinks. The Pina Colada was mostly big chunks of ice that I couldn't drink through a straw, had no hint of alcohol, lacking in flavor and cost $9!! I had a mixed drink in DC recently for that price, but at least it had booze in it and tasted good. The shrimp tacos were good, the beef one was very dry and had no sauce on it or provided. $8 for two soft tacos and nothing comes with them. Chips and salsa cost extra. My husbands bbq pork was okay and the black beans it came with were sweet which was good and different. They had 2 major items not available yet that were listed on the menu. Only saw 1 waitress taking care of whole outside area and it was busy, she did a fine job, but service was too slow because of that. Hopefully they can get some more staff and menu items ready for the summer crowds soon. I wouldn't recommend wasting money on their extensive list of mixed drinks (mojitos, margharitas, shooters) that are all over $8, some were $11 (maybe I'm out of touch with cost?!, but that just seems high!). Try it for food and judge for yourself.
