Had workers in the house late and needed somewhere to eat. Our neighbors suggested Banana Cabana and they were right. We enjoyed a wonderful nacho's with beef, by far the best we have eaten down here. Friday night special was fried fish, fries, hush puppy's, Cole slaw and a drink. Three out of four of us ordered this and the... More

Had lunch with Family on the back deck. We got tasty burgers and fries. Having lunch on the deck provides awesome views of the IOP beach. Great place for a quick lunch at IOP. Good service and food.

After multiple visits, we are comfortable with Banan Cabana to provide a good meal at a goo dprice in a friendly atmosphere. Some TV's but not loud at all. Great for a family outing since they have lots of menu items. My grilled Mai Mai over a Greek Salad was just right with tasty blue cheese dressing. Nita went with... More

....and just what you want while at the ocean. Fun place with a great vibe. We started doing Trivia there and Rick is great fun. Decent wine and beer list, great margaritas, delicious 'loud' puppies, awesome nachos and taco salad, good fried flounder, lightly fried shrimp with tasty fries. We were all very happy with our fun evening here!

Had a perfect day at the beach and finished it with a visit to Banana Cabana! Fresh seafood platter and tasty "loud puppies"! They have a great patio area with perfect views of the ocean. Friendly service. Will go back again and again.

The Banana Cabana's menu is full of enticing meals. I chose the Cuban Mix and our server soon delivered it along with a really tasty Iced Tea. The meal was really nice, everything fresh and a perfect lunch portion too. The price was right, nice atmosphere (though kinda empty on a November Friday) and location is A-OK too. I highly... More

I had a great Bachelorette party here. The bar was calm and nothing crazy, just what I wanted. The bartenders really looked out for me and respected my wishes of no shots for me.
