Ate dinner here on a recent Saturday night. Typical beach bar, open setting and lots of televisions. We were seated by windows overlooking the water, and were treated to a beautiful sunset while we ate our meal. The food was not bad; I had the coconut shrimp and my husband had fried shrimp. Although someone recently posted that the meals... More

We had some drinks and a snack. The burgers were good. We sat out by the water and it was perfect. The day was cloudy so it wasn't too hot to sit, have a cocktail and get a chance to catch up with some friends.

Great view. There is outdoor seating available but it was quite windy so we stayed in. The food was ok, portions large, but service could have been better. Staff seemed more interested in talking among themselves instead of paying attention to the customers. Even though we were staying five nights at a hotel very close, we didn't return.

I'm a big eater kind of guy and I'm not much for scenery, but it was a nice place. I left somewhat hungry here because the portions were not that special and the presentation was mediocre. I ordered a conch soup where the conch it self was nonexistent. Then I asked for the fried aligator and the portions for that... More

First off the food is awesome. Service was great. We went on a Friday for a late dinner and sunset. They had a live band. We didn't care for the band but the sound wasn't overwhelming. It's a decent view of the sunset over the inner coastal waterway and pier. They did have PVC chairs which we found odd but... More

This place is a hidden gem. Great food, great services and well priced. We went on a Thursday and there was a band playing. We recommend the red fish and tator tots :)

We visited this grill on our family vacation. Our hotel room wasn't ready so we had our fur babies with us. We were greeted by the kind and friendly hostess and servers who absolutely adored our fur babies. Food was good... except for the rice and beans not our style I think it might be like a Jamaican styled rice... More

Very relaxed & casual, well worth the ride. You can sit at tables right on the sand, if you wish. The high top tables were shaded and comfortable. Great Happy Hour specials, $2.50 beers; Beaches Goomba cocktail for $6.00, regularly $8.00. We even saw a Great Egret!
