Didn't have good service. Place was near empty, food and service took very long. We ordered a burger and grilled shrimp. Shouldn't have to wait so long. Drinks went empty. Food was just so so. Wouldn't go back.

I love this place. Although they have many delicious entrees, I love it when they the Baby Flounder. It is breaded with a tasty breading and cut in such a way that it is boneless with filleting. Best flounder on the island.

A local favorite. Have never had a bad meal and has a great bar. Is not a large place so filled up quickly.

Thought we were in for a treat as this place sits right on the beach. Casual atmosphere and thought it would be good fresh seafood. Really more of a locals / biker bar. Terrible service and average bar food. Best part is the view.

Have had dinner, lunch on the beach and corn beef and cabbage on St Patrick's day. Really enjoyed. Chicken wings and fish sandwich (flounder ) was tasty!

Great view, friendly waitress, food was marginal. Ordered the catfish but they didn't have any, got shrimp basket instead. Shrimp was your typical deep fried, the hush puppies that came with it were under cooked on the inside, doughy. Only had one other couple in...More
