Thanks to Tina and the staff! I really enjoyed the salad, the skewers were delicious, and the sangria was refreshing as I enjoyed the emerald water view! There were plenty of TVs to watch entertainment while lounging at the bar, also. Plan to return soon! Jacques

“Breath of fresh "ocean" air!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We were having no luck finding good service at area restaurants including the restaurants on the very nice resort we were staying at. We happened upon this gem of a place and so happy we did!! We were seated immediately, greeted by our server CHRIS immediately and he was genuinely happy to serve us!! He was honest about menu items when asked his opinion, he stayed on the ball while still maintaining a friendly demeanor. Our food came in a timely manner and was absolutely delicious! Will return soon!!

“Just ok.”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Was not impressed with food quality. The fresh catch snapper with lump crab was disappointing. The fish was dry and overcooked. They forgot the lump crab and brought it out in a "side" bowl.

“Another Seafood Restaurant!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Surf Hut is has a unique layout, Open Air! The food is typical Beachfront fare and the prices are comparable to other restaurants of this genre. One good thing, a big parking lot!

“Good food with a wonderful location”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

This place was pretty neat! Right on the ocean that provided a gorgeous view. As a matter of fact, waiting for your table waiting the best wait ever. You can beat playing corn hole while on the beach enjoying the beautiful scenery. Was seriously the best wait ever... I definitely recommend this place to anyone. By the way, great tasting food!!!!
