“Beach Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

My husband and stopped in here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. We were told its more of a drinking establishment, but the food was great! The atmosphere was just what you would want to find at the beach, the service was excellent, and no complaints of the food or drinks!

“Debbie saved our night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

After walking out of a restaurant, We were greeted with open arms by Debbie who got our drinks within a minute......We were eating before we knew it and The Grouper, haddock Fried shrimp, and onions rings were great. We watched the bartender greet customers and Debbie took the time to ask our names and we watched as she stopped at every table to spend a few minutes with her guests. I would visit this place again and again...THANKS FOR A GREAT NIGHT, Debbie. Mona, Lynn and Christy.

“Late night dinner, great find!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

After a very long day of beach, driving around and sight-seeing, we wanted to sit and have a nice, easy dinner, with a large beer - this was the perfect place! Added-extra: super singer-guitarist, wonderful playlist of tunes that were appropriate for outside dining!! Great buffalo-chicken sandwich, fries, scallops and ice cold beer. We will definitely return again!

“You can't go wrong with the grouper”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

I have been to SOB's on several occasions and had my first less than stellar experience. There were 3 of us for a sunset dinner. We were seated quickly but waited over 15 mins for our waitress to take our drink order. She passed our table numerous times but never even acknowledged us or greeted us. When she finally arrived and we ordered drinks we asked if they had a rum punch she could recommend. She grabbed the menu out of our hands and flipped it to the back page and said curtly, "if you want a special drink, here they are". The very first drink is a rum punch, couldn't she just have said, "oh why don't you try our......". Since it had taken so long for our drink order to be taken we quickly perused the menu for our dinner order as we didn't want her to get out of our sight again without ordering. Two appetizers of smoked fish dip were ordered along with a dozen of oysters on the half shell. The dip was a healthy serving but nothing compares to the oysters which are consistently good on every visit. For dinner, two ordered the grouper dinners with onion rings. Both diners raved about their food and ate all of it. I ordered the buffalo shrimp and will never order it again. It arrived with 6 pieces of shrimp, approx 1/4 lb. This buffalo shrimp is like nothing I have ever had. It was a dry peppered shrimp, no sauce. I found it to be unpleasant in taste and appearance. From now on I will eat chowder if I want a light dinner or stick with the grouper if I want a meal. The waitress was never friendly, and seemed to actually try to avoid our table. I always tip 25% but not on that evening. A 15 % tip which I left was a gross overpayment for the services she rendered. But she was young and did not seem to be a local. The restaurant was not full, there was no wait, and she had 4 other tables of 4. I didn't think that was an overwhelming assignment compared to other evenings when we have had the pleasure of having a warm friendly male waiter successfully juggle numerous tables and always be quick to refill drinks and joke with the diners.
