They have a nice menu and love the ribs. Right on the ocean so great view to enjoy lunch by. Chair rentals are available so stay awhile.

We ate some great fish at Mr Bushby's beach bar. It has a great view of the water and is open air so it really has an island feel.

My husband & I stopped for a drink & sat at the very small bar where there was only one other couple. We were ignored, assumingly since we were not regulars. Daniels by the Sea looked like better service for dinner. We had one drink, closed out & went next door & had rock star service & some delicious apps... More

During our two week stay we have had breakfast, pizza to go in the afternoon, and an amazing seafood and pasta dinner with friends. The atmosphere was awesome, a view of the ocean under the trees. Casual but elegant food and service. We plan to go at least one more time for my husband's birthday dinner.

This beach side bar offers food, and drinks while you lounge in their beach chairs under an umbrella! Beautiful white beach. They also rent snorkel gear!

We love going to Mr Busbys, especially for breakfast to have their Johnny cakes. They have a pretty nice happy hour as well. Right on the beach with awesome views. Grey is an outstanding server, we look forward to seeing him on every visit.

Great value. Just the thing for travelers on a budget, as a pound of fries will fill you, if you are up for that kind of thing! Good burgers and sandwich option. Small $1 Happy Hour beers are a bargain.

I'd give this 3.5 if I could, mostly because the service was pretty slow, but very nice, so I rounded up to 4. The food was good, but it wasn't great. I wasn't wowed by anything. But, it's right on the beach, and that's worth something, and the prices were reasonable. If you're at Dawn Beach, you don't have a... More
