About
Established in 2007 We are a casual waterfront restaurant located on the boardwalk in Johns Pass Village. We started as a small ice cream and coffee shop in 2007. We slowly expanded over the next few years slowly bringing in more and more food items. Now we are a one stop shop on the boardwalk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and love to hangout on the boardwalk and talk about fishing. Come on out and try our Authentic New England Lobster Roll, our delicious fish tacos and of course our famous Boardwalk fries, you wont be dissapointed.

The food was delicious. The portions were bigger than expected, worth the prices paid. Had lobster rolls & Philly cheesesteak fries among other things. Would absolutely go back.

My husband had the lobster roll with fries & a beer and I had a pepsi. Everything came out tasting good and the perfect temperature. There were only 3 people working around 3pm and it didn’t slow down until about 3:30. They were all very...nice and the only issue was nobody was given refills or asked if they wanted another drink including us. A group of ladies complained about them waiting for refills but other than that it seemed like this place was spot on. We would definitely come back.More

I’m from MD originally and was hoping this would actually taste like boardwalk fries. They do not. Don’t waste your money on the fries.

Small place on water. Fresh seafood. We had lobster roll, grouper sandwich and onion rings. Large portions. Food was good but everything lacked seasoning. No seasoning at all. Service not so great either. Place could use a good cleaning.

We went to The Boardwalk Grille the first night we were in town for our vacation. I read the other reviews and decided we would start our vacation there. Our food was delicious! The boardwalk fries are literally the best fries I've ever had. We...tried a couple drinks that we didn't like and our server took them off our bill immediately without even being asked.Great service, great food! I see why they're ranked number two in the area!More

Just a hole in the wall, but the service is great and the food is even better. If you want to splurge, get the lobster roll. It's expensive but so worth every penny. And don't dress up or you will look out of place.

VERY small restaurant, so get there early and get your name in! The food was great—best grouper tacos I’ve ever had! The rest of my family had the shrimp basket, chicken philly, and the philly fries. HUGE amounts of delicious food! Highly recommend!

Had some time to kill strolling around before we can check in and stumbled upon this grill. Cute little Place with amazing food. Friendly atmosphere. Grouper sandwich was amazing and the shrimp tacos and fried pickles were great. Great start to our vacation and will...probably grab lunch her again. Highly recommend! Reasonably priced. Would have liked to try the lobster rolls but coming from the north wanted to stick with something more local.More

My brother in law really wanted a grouper sandwich, and we decided to goto the Boardwalk Grill. There was a very short wait, so we went down about 20 feet, and had a beer while waiting. We waited about 20 minutes, and then was seated....Toni was out waitress, and she was great. We all ordered some sort of Grouper: blackened sandwich, dinner, and bites. All were really good. One order of onion rings, that were homemade, and good. I recommend this place for fresh grouper, and/or other stuff? We will go again soon.More

We had the lobster roll & Philly cheese steak fries. This meal was incredible. The place has a cafe vibe but we sat outside so no issue. The lobster roll was a very generous portion and the fries - wow, massive again & very tasty.
