....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.

We were a group of four plus a toddler. Went for dinner and sat outside on a beautiful evening pre Hurricane Matthew. There is a large selection on the menu, prices are fair as well as prices for drinks. This is a casual place. Server was friendly and prompt. Will go again on our next stay on the island.

I'd like to commend the girl because we had a party of about 10 people and that can be really over whelming. It's a small place, but I tend to like my food place to be quaint. The menu was great! I feel like their portions for buffalo shrimp were pretty small considering the price of it, but they were... More

Stopped here for our first meal on our IOP vacation, their hushpuppies are so good and so was their shrimp! Drinks looked good but I had to pass that time, nice patio by the beach.
