“Pay the price for looking at the beach!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We went there for lunch. Food was over priced, I guess because you can see the beach from where you are sitting. The food was no anything special. My wife had a fish sandwich and I had fried catfish and fries, our bill was about $45. We could have eaten at Captain D's for a better value and better food. Some people may say, oh, it was so good, but sorry, I don't think so.

“Typical boardwalk restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

The establishment was a typical boardwalk restaurant. Nothing special about the actual building. Service could have been better but I would say it was typical laid back beach service. We ate on the covered beach patio which did have a nice ocean view. The kids enjoyed watching the seagulls. The restaurant has a very small play area on the beach but the slides and such were extremely rundown and covered with the seagulls. The food was typical but expensive. Each kids burger and fries meal was $6.95. I had the catch of the day which was grilled mahi mahi and it was surprisingly delicious. My teenager had the fried grouper which he said was really good and my friend had the fish and chips which she said were similar to what you would get from a fast food establishment. Not a place to seek out or avoid.

“Wonderful food, huge portions, excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We went to Anglers with a large party including two young children and some elderly adults who had trouble hearing. The restaurant quickly seated us at a long table, and our waitress explained specials, answered questions, and got our drink orders quickly and efficiently (with no mistakes!)
A couple of us have allergies to seafood/fish and were quickly relieved to see a options on the menu that would satisfy us as well. And we were not disappointed.
We were shocked, however, at the huge portions of food. Oh my!! The popcorn shrimp basket could easily be shared by 2 people. The salad with fried chicken on top was delicious and full of meat, as well as salad.
Everyone else enjoyed their crab legs, calamari, fish, and even the pork ribs. But the favorite item for most of us: the hushpuppies! well worth it to order a basket (6) of hushpuppies! They are larger than the typical hushpuppie (maybe 2 inches in diameter).

Anglers is family friendly and plentiful, and prices are reasonable. ENJOY!

“Fabulous views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We stopped at the Boardwalk next door before deciding on Angler's. Staff was great, view of the ocean from deck was awesome. Food was solid, fast and hot, what more could you ask for?
