“Wonderful, fresh, scrumptious seafood and GF too!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Great beach tavern with lots of good things to choose from. My husband and I had dinner here, and were very pleased with our experience. Was driving by and tried it out. Sat outside on a lovely evening and had a very nice waitress, Alex, who was very sympathetic to my gluten/lactose intolerances. It's expensive but worth every morsel. Being gluten intolerant - I ordered the steamed clams which were excellent: All 18 were tender and so so sweet. Best I have ever had. Then I had the delicious "peel and eat shrimp" which was obviously steamed in lavender and other aromatic spices and herbs - scrumptious flavor. My husband's meal was with good too: he loved his fried, sweet, tender oysters. But his clam chowder was not as good - he said it contained too much flour for his taste. The margaritas were very good too but really expensive as in $9.50 a piece with good rum. They came in a tall glass at least and were made with just natural real ingredients - tasty. Overall, if you want a classic, casual beach tavern experience with excellent food and drinks, and price is not a problem - go here! Wear your sandals and You'll love it.

“Good food, Loud”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Ate in back room, usually good experience. Food was fine but the place has been re-done to be like a boat/battleship. All hard, metallic or aluminum surfaces including chairs. Could not hear a person sitting 30 inches away from me and then, when other patrons can't hear, they start yelling. Mentioned it to greater and she noted we could sit outside at tables located directly on busy LBI Boulevard.?. That's their quiet area..Need to soften interior to curtail noise.

“Good food; good service”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Went there for dinner on a busy summer, Saturday night. About a half hour wait for a party of 4- not bad. Got a table outside. The waitress was very busy - but she brought us our drinks and meal in a reasonable amount of time. The sandwiches, fish and seafood were all good. Drinks were tasty too. Good food; drinks; and service. I'd go back.
