I reviewed this place two years ago and it was just OK then. It is still vacation dining. The food is over priced, the portions are small, and the service is OK. But two years ago the quality of the food was great. Not any more. The flounder did not taste fresh. The quility of the burger was terrible. Spit... More

It's your typical beach shack restaurant but the food was really great. I totally recommend the sushi wontons - great! Raw oysters were just ok - really fishy and could've been colder. French dip with homemade chips was really good too. We had some great drinks and just enjoyed the other islanders.

The blackened grouper was to die for. My husband had crab legs and they were awesome as usual. The triple chocolate cheesecake is a must. We go there all the time and the food is the best on the island.

Service was friendly, and the boiled peanuts were so good. We really enjoyed this place most of all the places we ate on the island.

We were not too impressed with this restaurant. We arrived at 8:30 and still had a 30min wait for dinner. We heard good things about the restaurant but we're not impressed at all. We had the crab stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon that were over cooked and small. We ordered the crab cakes which came out as one medium size... More

Food was very good! Went for a birthday celebration about an hour before close so staff may have been distracted trying to get out of work, but service was a little disjointed. I would still recommend though!

They will not give you a dinner menu until 5:00. We sat down at 4:30 and ended up having to wait 30mins. My crabcakes were good but nothing special, I ordered a Ladies Special (I think that was the name) and it was NOT worth $7.50. I was not impressed.

Had to get my fried shrimp and cold beer fix, so we headed to Whaley's for lunch...always a favorite. Son had a great crab cake sandwich and daughter had a fried shrimp salad. Love this place!
