“Best Value....Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Great value to end a day of fun in the sun. Where can you get a fish sandwich, fresh cod/haddock, mayo, tomato, lettuce and a toasted bun for $5 near the shore? No where but at Surfside. They also own the little shop next door and when I broke a water globe of Nubble Light the owner noted it, and replaced it with a smile. I am a frequent flyer of the Surfside and I love it. Great value. No wine or beer but just get it to go and eat at the beach!

Perfect weather for outside dining... The Surfside still has a breakfast special for $7.25.. Also try the french toast, huge portion..

“I was wondering why it was empty”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

The owner of this establishment should be ashamed of himself! You are cheep! This place is the biggest ripoff and gross. How do you wreck a chicken finger and lemonade? Why can't you sell a small lemonade???? Because you want to rip people off! Why can't you except credit card??? Because you are a cheepskate! Feed 6 kids there it cost a fortune and they left hungry because it was so bad. Mooshy chicken? You should have a sign on the door saying that you do not except credit. Not a tiny one on the side. It cost the same to eat at the outback you should except credit. I shouldve noticed the place was empty and there was a wait everyplace else. I go to York often and will never ever return to your restraint! Horrible!!! It all went in the garbage!! What a waste.

“Soft Serve Ice Cream -- On Short Sands Beach at York, Maine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you want a quick hamburger, hot dog and fries or my favorite, a twist cone with sprinkles, while you are at Short Sands Beach, in York Beach, Maine...Surfside is the place to visit. It's a family-owned business and we've been served by the same family members for many years. They are friendly and serve up some fast and good fast food.

“Not bad, you get what you pay for.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I've gone here for years, clearly not gourmet food, but my kids and I really like the burgers and the chowder isn't bad either. Sometimes you might have to wait a bit when there is a crowd, but generally it's a pretty quick meal for not too much money and it's right on the beach.
