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.

Ate here one day for lunch with our granddaughter. The food was absolutely delucious! Yes it was a little pricey, but worth it for the convenience and service! We will be back!

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.

If the food was terrible, I would go for drinks and the view. On a survivor of a fishing pier, it's got to be the closest bar to the water. Wonderful food and great staff. Couldn't be in a better place for watching the waves or people. Will be back before vacation ends.

With the view, the food would only have to be moderately good - but we loved the calamari and crab legs, and the mojitos! We sat upstairs where the view of the ocean was pretty spectacular. Definitely a place for a return visit.

They offer an all you can eat buffet with snow crab legs and other seafood items, plus non seafood items. They also have an upstairs where you can order off of a menu. We really enjoyed the food and environment. Price is about normal for a seafood buffet.
