This is the go-to spot (weather permitting) for locals. Great service, casual atmosphere, best barbecue sandwiches in the area, and you cannot beat the view. Grab a table on the pier and relax!

It was really quiet when we went as it was a weekday of september, we really got to enjoy the view that the pier has to offer. Lunch was good, fair prices considering the location. Great service also.

Looked on TA to see what was good after a relaxing day at the beach and we found this Gem. Food was great and the establishment was also great. If you wanted to sit at the bar and drink inside you had a nice view of the ocean. They also have a small pier to eat on and also a... More

Had the best Mai tai I have ever had. Not cheap mind you. I had shrimp calabash that was delicious. My husband had crab sandwich which he loved. Great view. Limited menu but great food. Service was good. Will go back

Had fried oyster dinner with fries, slaw and hushpuppies. The oysters lightly fried and very good, although not the best I've ever had, they are worth ordering. Only complaint is the amount of slaw was meager, but good. Service was good and the venue(eating outside on pier) was excellent. Would recommend.

You can't beat the views! Great atmosphere. Food is ok. Artichoke appetizer is great. Calabash baskets are also very good. They tend to over cook the burgers. Drinks are good but are overpriced. We used to go all the time but have backed off due to prices in general.

The restaurant is located between the buildings of a hotel. The food is good but it has gone up in price each year over the past few years. The menu is not very large but everything that I have had was still good.

Drinks are reasonably priced for the chance to have a drink right on the water. Make sure to grab a seat on a sunny day on the patio. You can be in your bathing suit, no shoes, no shirt , no problem. Try the piña colata and awesome beer specials.
