We have been coming here on vacation for years. It is a classic beach dive with great food and drink. Of note is the quality of service. It has improved immensely. Joel was our server and he was as good as any waitstaff at any...5 star restaurant at which we have eaten. The burgers are simply the best on the island (and beyond). They have a nice beer selection for every taste, including two of their own label.More

The grouper sandwich was a family favorite. do wish they offered more of a variety of food, everything seemed to be either smoked of fried.

The crab basket is amazing! Try aioli shrimp for an appetizer. Drinks are fast and amazing. The staff is more attentive than your gramma and gramma !!! It’s a must go.

Been here on vacation a half a dozen times and finally stopped Saturday early evening to feast. Always been appetizers and drinks in the past but the bartender told us the night before that if you want oysters and crabs, come here. Man, this place...has oysters on a half shell nailed. Fresh, clean and absolutely perfect raw oysters. If you were ever fearful to slurp one down and if you're going to do it for the first time, do it HERE! I personally am one and done but my wife devoured the other eleven. For my entree (and her second course) we stumbled on the BAM BAM BUCKET (1-1/2 pounds of crab) watching another couple eating it. So we tee'd up the same and I'm telling you there is no disappointment with this buy whatsoever. The seasoning wasn't quite Bay's (much better) and the bottom of the bucket was drenched in garlic butter. The crab was absolutely sweet, tender and bountiful. I believe we used a whole roll of paper towel leaving nothing but a pile of shells. Red potatoes and corn were absolutely delicious as well. No room for dessert after this feast! If we could, we'd move in if we could eat like this everyday on the island!More

Stopped in for our first time. We decided to graze on appetizers-- Oysters on the half shell were large, sweet and simply excellent; steamed shrimp just perfect. And the BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp... what can I say. We will be back!

Hi, we hit many happy hours for appetizers. Go to their web site. Their food is very good. I think most sandwich type foods are in the 12 - 17 range.

No prices on line that I could ever find. But if you go on their facebook page there is a photo of the scallops.....I prefer the scallops at Doc Fords. But everything at SOB is decent!
