This place came recommended by a few people and reviews seemed ok, but there was nothing to recommend from our experience. One in our group had Shrimp Scampi and the shrimp were completely overcooked and tasted slightly "off"....did not finish the dish. My wife had...a burger ordered medium that came closer to rare, but decided to just go with it. My burger arrived with all the wrong toppings and was sent back to the kitchen. I drank my beer, while waiting for my order to be recooked ....It was warm and flat. My redone burger arrived about the time the others were finished...... the toppings were correct this time, but unlike my wife's burger, my medium burger was completely rare. I decided to take a pass, a decision my wife should have made as well, as she got very sick later. I do not know if they had a particularly bad night, but we will not be returning.More

Visited here for dinner for the first time on a Sunday evening. No music which was fine with us. Friendly, attentive waitress. Average menu. Ordered a mango-rita which I would not have identified as mango if I hadn't known. Good sized serving though. Ordered mahi...tacos, hubby ordered flounder dinner. Tacos were totally average and cold. Cheese on them not even melted. On a scale of 1-10 I'd give them a 5. Hubby enjoyed the flounder but said it was room temperature as was the baked potato served with it. Restrooms were totally disgusting. Tiny, and water and sand all over the floors. Whole place just seemed tacky to me. Would not return.More

Visited here in a weekend getaway with my hubby. We liked the atmosphere-especially live music in an outdoor setting. The food was ok. I ordered the peel & eat shrimp but I was disappointed that the vein wasn’t removed & it was a bit over...cooked. My husband had the grilled grouper-said it was delicious but small portions. The service was great, esp considering how busy they were. Everyone seemed to be moving quickly to serve the customers.More

Had dinner here on the last night of our visit. Food was good, service was fast, beer was cold. What else do you need at a Tiki Bar?

We hosted our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding reception here on Sunday. They went above and beyond to make the whole event as easy for us as possible and they delivered the perfect celebration. The decor was beautiful, the food was amazing, and Sarah and Taylor...were the best! The owner was very responsive to any call and she and her crew made sure that every detail was covered. If you are in Carolina Beach, you must go visit! Thank you to the staff who made sure we were taken care of so we could relax and enjoy our time with friends and family!More

A great live band, ice cold beer and one of the best damn shrimp Po'Boy sandwiches I've ever had. The place had a good vibe but lends itself to a more mature crowd. I'm sure kids would be okay if it was early in the...evening.More

Great laid back atmosphere with live music and a good breeze, perfect for kids. Staff was attentive and patient with our groups 6 kids. We did go early at 5:00 on a Sunday and got seated right away as a party of 10. Parking was...free as well. Nice selection of drinks that were plenty strong and tasty. Food was great. We had the mahi tacos (very good), shrimp and grits (excellent) and the mahi nachos (also excellent and unique). Kids had the typical breaded shrimp and fries and loved it. Would highly recommend.More

The service was great and spot on. Atmosphere was nice and busy. But servers kept up with it. Our family tried 5 dishes. 1st the shrimp Bruschetta and that was very good. However the shrimp scampi was tasteless and missing any form of cheese. The...shrimp basket was ok at best and the breading was very soft and soggy. The mahi taco was very salty, and the side dish of mixed vegetables is a frozen bag of veggies from Costco. With no flavor. the drinks were watery, and the last dish was shrimp and grits and that was good.More

We do! It’s on our kids coloring sheet, and not on the regular menu. We offer: hamburger, cheeseburger, hot dog, chicken Alfredo and chicken nuggets. All come with one side and a drink.
