The service was a bit slow after we were seated. We had a long wait for our server to greet us. The shrimp, scallops, and calamari were perfect! Both blackened ribeyes had great flavor, but were way overcooked(ordered med-rare and cooked well done). We would definitely eat here again though. I chalk this up to an off night. Easily could...

We stumbled across this cafe while driving around. It had just reopened for the season. The service and food were great. The location was perfect - right on the beach!

Ambience galore in this family friendly relaxed eatery! Very accommodating menu...good hamburgers, very good fries. The spinach salad topped with a generous portion of grilled shrimp was a perfect size. The crabcake sandwich was generous and tasty. Four of us had dinner and soft drinks for under $60, in a tourist town that is great in my book!

We were seated right by the outside door. It was so windy out and every time someone came in the door our dinner was interrupted. Noisy with a lot of young children. Food wasn't as good as we expected. Nothing special.

Amid the dunes the Conche Cafe stands alone. The outer deck offers an unspoiled vista of the Atlantic & the strand below. This is what eating at the beach is all about! I've never had a bad meal here. The shrimp Po Boy & Rib eye Steaks rule supreme in my book! I never leave without having Two Mango Margaritas!... More

It's literally right on the beach! Even on the hottest of days, there's a nice breeze off the water. The fish tacos were delicious and a good value for the money.

Food real good. View of the waves breaking on the beach excellent. Crab cakes are superb. Sea food sampler worth every penny - conch balls, grouper fingers, shrimp wraped in bacon and macaroni salad with shrimp. Full bar with a great menu of summer drinks and plenty of beer to chose from

I absolutely love this place and try to eat there at least once a month. It is right on the beach with a gorgeous view of the ocean, and in nice weather, you can sit outside on the deck. The food is consistently great,and I have never had bad service there. Drinks and food are reasonably priced. I would recommend... More

We were celebrating a birthday today, and had a lovely lunch here. We have eaten here many times, and today was as good as all the others. This time we had fish tacos and seafood salad. Delicious!
