Wow! This shack has amazing burgers, delicious and fresh fish. Right across the street from the beach, it has great scenery. The server, Tiffany was terrific, and very attentive. The 1/2 lb. burger is a real handful, but still juicy and tasty. We had the...More

This place is always packed, and for good reason. Our favorites are the Crab Cakes and the Burgers, which are not only big in size, but taste as well. There’s a good selection of entrees as well. So whether you go for lunch or dinner,...More

One of our favorite little local places in Flagler Beach. It's tiny and super casual, but has fabulous hamburgers! All kinds, with organic beef cooked to your favorite temperature. Fries are good also, and other choices as well. Hamburger heaven! So good.

We had tasty snd fresh grouper sandwiches served by a friendly bartender. The area is free of chain restaurants so it’s great to eat at a typical ocean front place. Next door is the kitschy souvenir place typical from the past, loved it!
