We came here last fall and were able to sing 4-5 times, like everyone else, each with the previous KJ. Tonight the new KJ allowed the regulars and employees to sing 5 times before anyone else sang once. We drove from Tampa, expecting the same good service we received last year, to no avail. We will not be back and... More

I have been coming to Reddington beach in the summer for over 20 years and have always wanted to try the Friendly Tavern. We met friends there on a Sunday afternoon- were not greeted or seated as we entered. We had to ask for menus and the bartender and waitress were not very fast about taking our order. We had...

Great place for brunch. Try and make it for the 1058am Sunday ceremony. Law makes it illegal to serve alcoholic drinks before 11am on Sundays, so you'll see the tiki bar outside get prepare for the fun people. Chef Rainbow cooks up a storm of yummy flavors creating a circus in the mouth of tastes.

Stopped by for breakfast while on vacation. We were the only customers for the first 30 minutes, which is always kind of scary. It's a bar, so we did not expect too much, but I will tell you, the food was outstanding and the portions were plentiful. The servers were very sweet and we left very satisfied. We will definitely...

My husband and I go here often because the location is convenient, the food is fantastic and reasonably priced, the service is fast and friendly, and they have nightly karaoke! We've eaten there often and have never had a bad experience. They also have nightly all-you-can-eat specials (prime rib, crab legs, fried chicken, fish). Truly a gem.

We went back a couple days later and sat outside but not at the bar. Ordered the blackened shrimp, was served as regular cooked shrimp, server... More
