The view is wonderful, just on the ICW and the restaurant is clean! The food is good - P&E shrimp, fish & chips, chowder are all quite nice. The service here is TERRIBLE - often no one to great you at the door, slow to bring drinks and take orders, and the food can be slow coming from the kitchen.

Located on the Intracoastal Waterway, Dead End Saloon has a great view of the Waterway and marshes. The food is good, particularly the clams or mussels. Many of the offerings are pretty much the standard fried seafood of the area, but the few we have tried are good, and not greasy.

The food was really good and the price was not too bad. The only 2 complaints I have it was cold inside the restaurant and the wait was too long.

The dead ends who has a terrific Waterview a very casual and informal atmosphere. The fair is somewhat simple but very well done. It is a great place for like food particularly if you were looking for a really good hamburger or cheeseburger.
