I use this site to look up every where we go and when it comes to food I wouldn't trust another site I checked out the reviews for this place and thought the family of 8 and two little ones it looked good. So the place is very small not at all what I thought it was and it is... More

We went there twice last week ~ once, on Sunday night and then again a few nights later. Sunday night, the place was full with football watchers and there was a sign that said "Wait to be Seated" but no one came out. Short while late, a guy came from the other side with a broom in hand, pointed and... More

I had the fish tacos and fri e which were excellent. Great flavor. Little over priced at 17 dollars. My wife had the chicken and crab sandwich with fries. The flavor was exceptional the crab was cooked right and really accented the chicken. I would definitely go again. Atmosphere is also great just a little over priced for the portions... More

Granted, we went in the off-season, but I was not impressed. Our waiter was uninformed on the Gluten-free aspects of the menu, and the GF pickin's were slim. My hubby got the seafood special and thought it was kind of bland. I had the scallops and the were watery and tough. My son-in-law had the Seafood Mac-n-Cheese and thought it... More

We had a group of 9 including five kids ages 5 to 14. Everyone was able to find something to their liking. We all enjoyed our meals. Nothing fancy, very casual.

We ate here at least 3 times during our vacation. Uncle Ike's had the best fish sandwich I have ever had. It was perfectly grilled fresh caught Mahi Mahi and we loved it. The atmosphere was nice too and the waitress was very nice and quick. The drinks were to die for as well. I ordered a Rum Runner every... More

Went to Uncle Ike's for the first time this past week for an early dinner. We had the crab dip with pita bread which was awesome. I had the seafood platter which was a crab cake, fish, shrimp and a couple of sides. Everything was good. Portions weren't very large, but good quality. My wife had the salmon imperial which...

After wild horse tour we needed food. Had several choices right in same center. We chose correctly. My companion loves fried pickles and wasn't disappointed! The crab quesadillas were excellent too. Service was fast and waitress very friendly.
