We got a referral to eat here from alligator attraction and so glad we went here for lunch. We had grilled fish tacos- it was awesome! Kids shared a burger, they liked it too. Service good, view to marina, front water. Would recommend it!

My husband and I ate at The Boardwalk Grill after seeing the #1 Trip Advisor rating. We had the fish tacos and grouper sandwich with fries and onion rings. The tacos and sandwich were ok (fish tasted fresh) but were not exceptional. The onion rings were greasy. We enjoyed the French fries, which had a fresh potato flavor and were... More

We went here based on the reviews. Great seafood. I had the lobster roll. My grandson had the fried grouper po boy (new item on menu). My wife had the Philly cheesesteak (best I ever tasted). The kids split a hamburger. Get the onion rings while you wait. Watching the Dolphins while you eat great food. This is a must... More

Went there for lunch on a Saturday, it was a little busy, but the place is pretty small. We had a small wait of about 15 minutes. Didn't mind because there is a lot to watch outside while you are waiting. I ordered the philly cheesesteak. It was very good and the fresh cut fries to go with were also... More

If you blink, you'd miss this place on the boardwalk. Keep your eyes open for it, you won't be disappointed. Our group of 4 went to lunch at a different restaurant on John's Pass, but had to come for the lobster roll. The 4 of us shared one because we just ate, and they are pretty expensive. Next time I'm... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, my friend and I decided to try this place. Although apparently known for the very fresh (caught daily) grouper, we tried the lobstah rolls and they were awesome! The onion rings had cayenne powder in the beer batter, so a bit (lot) too hot for my liking. The fries with cheese and bacon were ok---a bit... More

We had the fish tacos, which were some of the best I've had, and the onion rings. Those onion rings are fresh cut, huge, and the batter is amazing. The sauce they give is awesome too. It's kind of pricey depending on what you get, but most things are in John's Pass. Definitely eat here. And give the servers a... More

Lobster rolls and onion rings were great! Staff is friendly. The place is not at all fancy and small, but fun and yummy!

We had the deep fried grouper and fries and Cole slaw, and burger. Also had fried Oreos for dessert. All very good. Service very friendly. It is a small, unassuming place. We sat at the high counter overlooking the boardwalk. It is a nice vantage point. We even saw a family of dolphins swim by! I would like to eat... More

Established in 2007 We are a casual waterfront restaurant located on the boardwalk in Johns Pass Village. We started as a small ice cream and coffee shop in 2007. We slowly expanded over the next few years slowly bringing in more and more food items. Now we are a one stop shop on the boardwalk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and love to hangout on the boardwalk and talk about fishing. Come on out and try our Authentic New England Lobster Roll, our delicious fish tacos and of course our famous Boardwalk fries, you wont be dissapointed.
