Started with poppers. So good! Also had lobster rolls and grouper sandwich. All just perfect! We are locals and will be back! Servers are fantastic. Mary is totally awesome. She may just need a raise...😊. They don't smother the lobster in mayo..you absolutely can't beat the food. Next time I'm trying the blackened grouper tacos. Thank you all for a... More

If you want fancy and formal, don't go! Boardwalk is casual, 'beachy' and friendly. I cannot comment on all of the food as I always get the same thing. Grouper nuggets and chips...not 'French fries,' they're chips, like the real ones my Mum used to make back home in England. And they're delicious, just as the grouper is as well.... More

We enjoyed a great fish dinner while strolling the boardwalk. My husband had a lobster roll, my son had snapper, and I had fish tacos with grouper. The food was great, came fast. Small amount of seating inside and out - very casual, but well worth the stop. Alex was an awesome server.

My wife and I saw the good reviews when coming to the area for a "pirate cruise." I had my first lobster roll and it was great! The fries are certainly better than average fries! Good stuff! My wife had the burger and thought it was good. The special sauce they serve is also good. My only suggestion for improvement... More

We picked this place solely on the reviews on TA. We ate the fish and chips, and were disappointed. They are proud of their beer batter which we found to be thick and gooey. It over powered the grouper. We expected better from the reviews.We are Florida natives and they didn't have Sweet Tea! There is much better fried grouper... More

My wife had the Lobster roll and I had the fresh grouper sandwich. A great price for the lobster roll and it was all lobster and no fillers on a buttery roll. The grouper was grilled and nice size on a potato bun. A couple of coronas to wash it down and we were quite happy. Try it, you'll like... More

Menu is small but enough choices for everybody. Great service. Lobster roll was tasty and filled with a lot of lobster on a buttery toasted bun. Also we had the grouper tacos. I prefer tacos with traditional salsa vs. their special sauce (which was a little bit like tartar sauce taste wise) - but good amount of fish, grilled, moist... More

I moved from NY to Madeira Beach. I have traveled a lot and I have had many lobster roll. I have to say that not only are they awesome but also well priced. I bring friends and family to eat and they love them too.

We came due to reading about their excellent lobster rolls and we were not disappointed. We usually only have lobster rolls in Maine where we go every summer but these were just as good if not better . Our waitress Mary was very lovely and she was an additional asset to our visit. All in all We would strongly recommend... More

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.
