This is a very beachy kind of place. The place is strong on smoke smell so we elected to go out on the little porch. We ordered beers and burgers and fries. Delighted and inexpensive. The view is of the parking lot so understand this is a place for flipflops and shorts but a great burger.

My husband and I heard over and over how great the burgers were at the Wild Horse Saloon - so we decided to give it a shot. Once I saw the interior, the holes in the crappy stackable chairs, and smelled the cigarette smoke, I almost turned tail and ran. But I am so glad I stayed. The bartender was... More

Upgrades were $2.00 Only drawback were my fries, home cut, but cooked in old oul, very greasy. Service was good and next time we want a burger, we'll go to the Wild... More

Looked like a place where mostly locals go, but it was a friendly place. NO seafood, mostly burgers, wings, etc.

They claim they make the best burger in Port A and we have to agree. We had the Jack Daniels and Coke hamburger with pepper jack cheese and it was delicious! The place is a bar and it was a little smoky. The restrooms were light, clean and totally fine. If you can get past the dark bar atmosphere, you... More

Ok, the atmosphere is a little shady (and smoky) but the burgers were great. This is clearly a locals' bar at the beach but that is where you usually find some good food. While we were waiting for our burgers, we shelled the free peanuts and had some cold drinks. It was pretty cool watching the table of locals playing... More

Ok, yes, this is a dive bar with shoddy furnishes and populated mostly by people playing darts. That said, it's worth going to for the great food. My husband had the bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries (he loved both) and I had the chicken sandwich (maybe the best I've ever had) and the Best. Fries. Ever. Seriously! The bartender...

Jack and Coke burger. I've read the reviews, heard rumors in the winds of Port A, but wow. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and definitely not your typical burger. Sometimes I just want to chill with a cold beer and a good burger, play a little darts, and hang with the locals and the not so locals.... More
