“Fun little beach town eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food was good, the service was friendly, and the atmosphere cannot be beat. I love the outside bar, a great idea to keep people happy while they are waiting on a table. The kid's menu was a little over priced, but on a whole a good value for good food and a great time.

“Average at best Parents of small kids *READ*”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

First things first great atmosphere. Good service had a good waitress, Jennifer. Now on to the imprtant stuff one of the advertised specials (on the erasable chalkboard) were mahi tacos. Upon showing interest in ordering said tacos the waitress told us they were out. (Why not save the wait staff explaining that the 5x I heard while we were there & just ERASE it). We went with ahi tuna & seaweed salad that were DELISH!!! Also got the baja tacos...we happen to make better at home, but I would rate theirs a solid 7. Fried pickles were great! We ordered a mixed drink Barbee something, awful. It was vodka cran juice o.j...too much ice, no real stand out flavor. Oh well on that! Now what really throws the overall opinion were the
kids meals...kids chose mini corn dogs @ 6.25 per child (OUCH) for that price I'm expecting at minimum leftovers to take home. WRONG!! Approx 6 mini corn dogs (which equaled less than a whole corn dog) + a very small handful of fries...(o & they can keep the .99 cent frisbee their food was served in). Tasted a corn dog last minute post paying *barf* SO NASTY!! If I had tried before paying I would
have probably had a couple things to say. So to anyone with children!! Pay the extr $1 or $2 and encourage your kids towards an adult burger that way they'll have leftovers & not ask for a PBJ after you leave like ours did!! Me & hubs might would go back, but if we took kids would certainly steer clear of kids menu!!

“Can be Very Good Depends on your choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Lets begin with the salad...the spinach salad was very nicely prepared and very tasty...

the shrimp stick oki were just oki...they were advertised as "large ones"...well maybe to Lilliputians...additionally i prefer my grilled shrimp..no matter the size...with grill marks on them...these were barely done...

Next i ordered the "Brunswick Pearls" and indeed they were pearls...lightly fried fresh and juicy oysters over a decent slaw...oysters ***** slaw *...there's good stuff at SJ's but one must pick and choose...

“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Been here quite a few times for lunch. Awesome fish tacos, burgers and daily specials. The atmosphere is laid back and they play awesome classic rock music. Owners are super friendly and make you feel at home. They have outdoor seating as well. A great place for drinks with friends!
