The dewey devil drink is worth the visit - the drink has changed over the years with different companies running the place, but now that Northbeach (part of the Rusty Rudder) is running the place, the Dewey Devils are just like they used to be. Well done Northbeach!!

What a fantastic unique bar/restaurant. Opens up to a breath taking bay view, huge fire pit with wrap around patio bench, an ultimate beer pong table, sand covered tiki bars, and twinkle lights. We enjoyed our server Amanda who was very kind and prompt with our steamed shrimp and fresh chips and guacamole. Northbeach has live entertainment although we visited... More

Were it not for the drunkenness, over-serving, and overly loud music, this would be the perfect, sandy bayside saloon. A terrible mob brawl ensued in the parking lot here after closing time during the 2015 summer season, resulting in police descending from nearby jurisdictions and the State to bring the brawl under control.

Visited Northbeach twice over the weekend with a large group each time. The staff, the view, the drinks....all were amazing. The live band rocked it and the dance floor was packed. I liked the group beer pong table and the multiple bar areas. Sandy beach floor to the right was great. The only thing that was not fantastic was the... More

It was satisfactory. Plastic utensils kind of made it less than impressive, but the pricing was good and the service was above par.

This is a beach bar sand and all with great food. I had a wonderful time there and hope to go back soon. The people are fantastic and the music is great. They have live music which is't too loud and you don't have to come in by the front door...we came by boat which was really fun. The bartenders... More

This place is a beach bar. Sand, tiki bars, and tables. Great staff especially our bartender Anthony Mecca. HUGE food portions. The chicken cheese steak I had was topped with a bratwurst! I hear this place is rocking at night, but I've only been for lunch. Flip flops and swim trunks, perfect!
