Even if you don't care about the awesome scenery or the great service go for the fish tacos. Seriously, they are worth the trip alone. Everything else is just a bonus. This place is worthy of your time, I promise.

Stopped here for a quick break for lunch. Let me say the food was great and the beer was on tap. I bet they had 30 different beers to choose from and also bottled beer. You could enjoy lunch with a wonderful view of the beach.

Went twice this week while on vacation! Steamed shrimp during happy hour, the all beef hot dogs, and the list goes on. Server even remembered us from the previous visit two nights before.

We enjoy an annual visit to Fish Heads for the chance to sit on the pier, drink copious quantities of cold beverages while we interact with the staff and locals.
