Head the Grouper Wrap & Bugaloe Fries! The meal was fantastic but nothing compares to the fries! Loaded curly fries with meat, cheese, tomatoes & sour cream! To die for! Perfect place for lunch.

The view was very pretty but the drinks and the food were just okay. It did get very crowded. I went once and didn't go back.

They have a nice spot right on the beach but we didn’t care for the food. I would recommend going to other lunch spots.

Food was decent, lots of choices but a little slow to serve. I would probably try it again maybe I went on a bad night. Music was nice and your right on water so it’s at least worth a try.
