“Excellent FRESH Food”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

FRESH FRESH Food from the Food Dudes......Small Restaurant on the Beach Road, but you will love it.
Not Fast Food as they make everything to order......Did I say it was Fresh? I usually order the fresh fish wraps and my wife loves the veggie quesadilla.

“Fun surfer-themed cafe with great food”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

The name alone made us want to try it. The staff at our hotel also recommended it. It is a small cafe in a strip mall about a block from the beach. It has a lot of surfer decor, and surfing videos played on the TVs. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. I had a salad with grilled salmon and a peppery dressing that was delicious. My wife had eggs Benedict served southern-style with ham and biscuits, also really good. One son had a great pulled pork BBQ sandwich, the other enjoyed nachos. We're going back again before we head home.

“Hidden Treat”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

Don't let the size or location fool you. This place has a great chef/owner in the kitchen. It's small but if you want to taste something special try Food Dudes. Their daily specials are fantastic and they have the BEST waffle fries on the beach, get them as an appetizer - yummy. The tuna is local and always fresh as is all their local fish. Fish tacos are to die for.

“Meh. OK. Nothing special. Don't order the crab cakes.”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

A very ho-hum beachy-vibe-surfer place serving ho hum food in a cramped storefront. The crab cakes were an embarrassment to the cook. Or whoever made them. My pal's shrimp were way over-cooked.

The brunch menu looks good.

It would help enormously if you were really stoned before coming here.

If you're like me and don't smoke pot, you might consider going elsewhere.
