“Great view with outdoor dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Gulf is right outside and the water turquoise and beautiful. The restaurant is not fancy, very casual. Parking is a very big problem. Inside dining is very noisy. I had the grouper sandwich broiled (which was not on the menu) but properly prepared. It was excellent. French fries have the coating so many restaurants are using today, which I am not fond of. The food was served piping hot and French fries were piping hot. My husband had the mahi mahi and he said it was superb. Food was not allowed to be served on the beach area.

“Great Beach Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Stopped here for lunch on a pretty cold and windy day. We sat inside but, there is plenty more seating on a deck and on the beach. Great views and great food. Fried oysters were plentiful and tasty, reuben sandwiches were perfect and a special wrap was definitely special. Will stop here again if we are in the area.

“Nice location. Great Service. Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Have been here several times during the past 10 years. Location is great sitting outside [bring your own bug spray if you are dinning at night, and outside]. Very Good Grouper dishes [their two house Grouper dishes are the best on the menu]

“Absolutely terrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We visited for the first time, in what looked like an awesome position on the beach. There were six of us. We ordered 3 appetizers, one being the calamari, which was Like eating the sole on your shoe! The entrees came, no seaweed salad on a 29$ special, fries cold on the grouper filet. We then ordered coffee, which was all freezing cold! We also ordered after dinner drinks which hardly touched the bottom of the glass. An 18% service charge which you have no choice but to pay, and no splitting down of the check!!! Our total bill came to $440!!! This place just enjoys ripping good people off, and not a Care whether they see you again or not!! It truly is a total rip off!

Great food, great atmosphere, if service was better, it would be perfect. Specials are always good. You could not ask for a better view.
