“Great service...food is good not great.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Visited here on a Monday afternoon. The service was great and staff very friendly. It seemed like it took a while to get our food. Once our food arrived it was good, not great food...had the bbq sandwich which said piled high with bbq, but left a lot to be desired. Like I said, a good sandwich but not something I would order again. I think they should expand their menu a bit...2 burgers to choose from, but no chicken sandwich? The price was not too bad...a family of five with four adult entrees and one kids meal for just over 50 bucks. Very clean and not busy at all in the afternoon.

“Excellent food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

This was one of the better meals that we have had at Atlantic Beach. At some point almost every member of the staff stopped by to make sure we were okay. We had three kids in tow and the waiter did an excellent job of accommodating them. It was obvious that the staff and owners were dedicated to making this a positive dining experience.

The jalapeno corn bread was excellent along with the seafood risotto and roasted veggie wrap. The kids meal was large enough for two kids plus extra to take home. We will definitely go back.

“Great food, GREAT PRICE, yummmm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

First time dining at this Resturant after reading reviews, we decided to try this Resturant! Have to say hands down that this was the best meal that we ate all week, easily seated, wait staff were quick and on top of things, food came out quickly, plenty of food especially with the great price! Food was excellent both my mom and boyfriend had the 10 oz ribeye, priced at ONLY 16.99, I had the sautéed scallops and shrimp only 18.99! All 3 of the entrees were out of this world not to mention 2 sides and a salad were also included in the meal! Cheesy garlic bread was served before and during the meal!! Must try!!! Recommend to ANYONE! You will not be disappointed unless you decide to pass it by! Newly opened, excellent manager and owner very friendly and nice! Give it a try it will surely be a delight! :)

“Surfari was a wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

This was our first visit to Surfari and we enjoyed every aspect of the experience. A wonderful couple owns and helps operate the restaurant and they have a wonderful staff. The food was delicious and very fair portions. We had sea food and it was the real thing. Prepared nicely and came in a reasonable length of time. I noticed the food was not heavily salted. For those that want more you could add and for those of us that don't like so much salt it was a real treat. The restaurant has not been opened for a long time and I would hope that many of you will give them a chance. Nice people and very good food was our experience. They have nice beach photos that we enjoyed taken by a local photographer.

“Friendly people, delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We were in town for a few days and decided to check out this new restaurant, after a recommendation from our hotel owner. Boy oh boy! Were we in for a treat! We were there on a weeknight, before Memorial Day, so we nearly had the place to ourselves. This worked in our favor because the waitress, one of the owners and the chef gave us very personal service and made us feel very welcome. We both had a deluxe salad, but wanted to try it with the fresh sliced tuna, which is only offered in the tuna wrap, normally. There was no hesitation with our request and the salads were wonderful! Since we had eaten healthy dinners we decided to splurge and try some treats off of the dessert menu. I had the triple chocolate cheesecake and my husband opted for the turtle cheesecake. Yum! Yum! I know this place is going to do great and will be around for many years to come. And we will certainly be back!
