Great place for a burger & good music when out boating all day... Great way to spend the day or end the day...

“Not worth the time or money.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

We had gone to a concert on the beach & decided to try this place. No oysters, shrimp or any good food. My girlfriend got the "fish tacos" that were not cooked and were still wet. I opted for the seafood nacho's that had small shrimp & calms (from Walmart freezer section), the chips were greasy & just not good. The bartender was nice. Don't stop there. Go to peg leg Pete's.

“Complete and utter disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Saw this place recommended as a good kid-friendly place here on Tripadvisor. Decided to grab a burger on our way out. The only thing that makes it interesting is the proximity to the beach (literally right there). The stools and floors and decor are amusing at best. But my first red flag came when I saw that smack dab in the middle of lunchtime, there was only one other family there. I ordered a soda for myself and asked if they had kids drinks- no. Just slightly smaller cup. Still cost $2.25. Got the burger quickly, too quickly it turned out. It was completly raw inside. Disgusting. The menu overall was a joke- just a laminated sheet with burger, nachos, chicken fingers, etc. The only "beachy" item was a crabby burger. Maybe this place is good for the bar but even that would be pushing it. Very sorry I went here and wasted the money. Would've had a better meal at McDonald's!

“Not impressed at all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Having found this on Trip Advisor, and having visited the restaurant web site, thought we would check it out. They don't have oysters, don't think they had shrimp. Menu of what they did have was not impressive. Like low end bar food. Sandwiches and nachos. The beer was cold and not overpriced. Apparently they are in the process of renaming to Pirates Cove and deleating the oyster. I give credit to the bartender as he was friendly. However, the only thing this place had going for it was it is located on the beach. Too many other places to go. Won't be going back to this one.
