“Right across pleasure pier”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

The food is decent. I'm partial to Pappadeux's. We love to come here because it has the perfect ocean view and just across the amusement park. They validate parking so it's free when you dine in.

“Shrimp kisses”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Get the shrimp kisses.......lots of them....and then order more. They are delicious!!! Had the crab cake sandwich for dinner. Very good as well. Any wheelchair users be careful in the washroom!! Floor is extremely slippery!! I almost took quite a fall in there. SCARY. Go to Murddochs a nice souvenir store down the block from here. They have the crappy kid stuff, but also nice item you actually want.

“Very attentive service, very good dinner”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Very nice Reisling, Crab Avocado Dip & tortilla chips appy very tasty. Wife had Blackened Stuffed Shrimp topped with Lump Crab Meat, she thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a crusted redfish special plate that was excellent, fish was moist, and a large serving, topped with three shrimp, also excellent. We got bread pudding for dessert, also very tasty. The only slight disappointment was the gumbo - the soup was a little watery for my taste, and very small, salad size shrimp, and not a lot of heat/spice. Good, but no where near the best I've had. I would eat here again.
Service was excellent, Carlette took very good care of us, checked on us several times, made excellent food suggestions, really made the dinner enjoyable.

“Excellent service and food was enjoyable. ”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for a early meal and they were able to sit 7 adults very quickly...all of us left satisfied and full...and a cheerful talk with the manager as we left. We would all go again and tell friends to go also...a very casual and enjoyable place..
