“Ain't as good as it use to be”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We came last year and thought we found heaven. The food, service and atmosphere was awesome.

Now, a year later, the service was good, the atmosphere, just as I remembered, yet the food was not as good.

“A little disappointing on this visit ...”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

It was labor day Monday ... Most of the tourists had gone. So mccurdys was busy but not packed. We were disappointed. Service was slow and not very attentive. My shrimp were done perfectly, but my scallops were overlooked, chewy and dry. And the whole plate was cool, not hot when it arrived. My husband had the gumbo and it was acceptable, not remarkable. Overall, the meal was not as good as we've experienced previously at mccurdys. Maybe it was just the letdown after a busy summer season. I hope.

“Just average”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The ambiance was great and the wait staff was good....the food? Not so much. It was average at best. This was our first time and we will probably go back to try it again....but frankly we were not impressed. The parking lot is always full and they seemed to be doing a grand business. Not sure what the attraction is except for maybe the waterfront seating.

“Always great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Seafood platter cooked to perfection....Wife had crab cakes that were wonderful and loaded with meat and very little filler. Sit on the deck which is nice after afternoon son goes down or in nice indoor dining area.Other dishes are very good and moderatelt and fairly priced . Good service even when busy. In season recommend early seating or reservations. We eat there at least twice during the week that we are in Atlantic Beach each year.One of our four favorite places to eat there.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Oh the location is sweet and they had live music on the deck which is always risky, but the food was so disappointing. The menu selections sounded so good, but when they came it was awful. Soggy, watery green beans, bad tasting "cottage fries," tasteless fish. Then we had to endure a singer trying to do his best at Carly Simon songs. Alas. However, it must be a great place to drink as the bar was full of very happy intoxicated people. Well, obviously they didn't eat there - and they didn't have to listen to the guitarist either.
