Unparalleled views. One of the top two meals we had on our week long trip. A nice surprise...I had the fresh salmon yumm, he had the filet. Both perfectly cooked. And we are picky. The wine list! Far niente T $15.00 a glass. A first...
One of the best lemon drop martinis ever.we would be back in a heartbeat

The view of the ocean was great the food was fine the service was awful. The restaurant is right on the beach so if you just need to have lunch and get back to playing on the ocean I would say go for it. If your looking for nice dinner, find somewhere else.

There must have been some major changes made because where we ate doesn't resemble the earlier reviews.
We had a large group and it took very little time to seat us and the service was excellent.The portions were generous. Everyone enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, the food and the dessert were both incredible! It was at night so I can't vouch for the view but I am sure in the daylight it would be spectacular.
I am looking forward to going back. This time I'm going to try another entree but no doubt I'll have the bread pudding again. (Honestly the best i have ever tasted!)

The views and ambience at Surfside are excellent. Service was well intended. Unfortunately slow, poorly prepared meals dominate my opinion of Surfside. Each member of our party of four had a different food experience. Salads, soups, and meat dishes seemed to be nicely prepared the evening we visited. Oddly, the fish entrees were both overcooked and disappointing for the prices paid.

Go to Surfside for amazing beachside vistas. Go for drinks and you won't be disappointed. Florence has many better options for dining.

The restaurant has been recently remodeled and has very nice decor. Our meal was good.
We enjoyed a calamari appetizer. I had the seafood cioppino and my husband had steak and shrimp. We also had good crunchy french bread and a nice salad. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly. We would eat here again.
