“Dark & dirty”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Very small menu and slow service hardly got a hello out of the staff which was unfortunate since it was the first day of our stay, needless to say we never went back even for a drink much less the food.

“Great Food at a Great Price”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Food was fresh and priced right. The weather was a bit overcast so we opted to sit inside. Service was prompt and courteous. Food was delicious and cooked to order.

“Decent place great location”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

You can see the ocean well you dine on the back patio and they had a great musician. The food was decent considering price and that it was a bar as well as restaurant. The place did seem dirty. It really needed facelift. Seems to have not had money put into it in quite some time.
All things considering we would go back if we were on isle of palms again but most likely will not be.
Staff was friendly, service was quick and prices were low.
I would recommend going for a drink and music as well as a late night snack.
If it got the facelift it needs it would have been bumped up at least 1 more star maybe 2 seeing its on the ocean and had live music.

“Long wait..but worth it”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We were told it would be a 10 minute wait and after 20 minutes, I asked the hostess how much longer and it was obvious they had "forgotten" about us, but they seated us immediately. They have outside, beachfront dining and we were hoping to have a view of the beach, but the seating seats a little far back and behind the dunes. We did get a nice ocean breeze though. The food was incredibly good for a bar type eatery and it was very reasonably priced for a touristy place. I had a banana daiquiri that was worth the trip itself--DELISH. We would definitely visit again.

“Great meal and service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We sat at the bar due to the wait and the Male bartender (did not get his name) was a very nice guy. We really enjoyed the food as well! Great experience.
