You have to try the Clam Chowder even if you don't normally like it, it is the best I have ever tried. We went for Mother's Day and it was great. Parking can be tricky and hard to find. Good food for good prices. Staff is friendly. Added ceasar salad to my meal and it was great.

This restaurant claim to have the world best clam chowder...well they could possibly be right, definitely more clams than potatoes. However, their grilled Mahi Mahi was awesome! Casual, fun and delicious!

Clam chowder, Ahi Tuna, Mahi Mahi sandwich, Mahi Reuben: all still good and tasty. They do our fave Budlight lime in aluminum bottles so we do the long walk along the beach and stop off here for lunch/a drink several times during our 2 week holiday, it's a great place. And even better with the new tiki area.

I ordered a pork belly burger but doesnt taste nor look like one. Anyways any hungry belly will still chow down the food. Still the taste is not bad at all. The service was fast and the server was nice.

Myself and my wife ate here for lunch while vacationing in Siesta Keys Florida. We didn't really expect much but the food was great. They have the best New England clam chowder I think I have ever eaten. And that says a lot as I order this when ever it is available at places we go to eat Great location... More

Very good menu. Very fast service. Three distinct parts of a restaurant broken up into a saloon a restaurant and a tiki bar. Plus I love the big Buddha as well. Plenty of TVs to sit around and watch sports

Stopped by for Lunch to get out of the sun. Nice place. Serves Bar type food. Lots of fried fish although you can get non-fried off the dinner menu. Drinks were good and cost about $7

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Turtle Beach. Food was good, beer was cold - what more could you ask for?

We had a great supper! The best clam chowder we had on our entire vacation! I'm so glad they will ship it to you too. The broiled combo with the lobster tail, scallops, and shrimp was delicious and so were the Grouper Bites. It's a fish-camp style restaurant and is pretty noisy, but the food is delicious!

Thank dv_buddy
