This is a nice little place for burgers and fries or pizza. Clean, fast right on the beach, ice cream too.

ALMOST didn't go into this establishment based on the way the facilities appeared. The appearance is one that makes you think that the food from here would only be something mediocre. We decided to ask a family that was outside eating what they thought. Well, they were from Maryland and love to eat here when they visit! They said the... More

We stopped here for a quick dinner on the night of our arrival in York, the service was pleasant enough. The pepper burger is a small patty covered in grilled peppers, my burger deluxe was really good, both kids had hot dogs one was good and the second had a small spot of what looked like mold on the bun....

Great food on the shores of Short Sands. Perfect location to order your food and take it outside and sit along Short Sands Beach.

Fish and chips were dry and gross. I love cole slaw and theirs was gross and sour. Chicken fingers were questionable if they were chicken. How do u screw up frozen chicken fingers for kids?? Prices were outrageous for the quality but comparable to area. Good luck if u choose this place. Ekk

While at Short Sands beach, we were looking for breakfast... Went to one of the big name places and were told there would be an hour wait. We crossed the street to this wonderful, small place called Surfside... Plenty of seating was available, order was taken quickly at the counter and food served up fast and hot. Pricing was as...

Surfside is right next to Fun-O-Rama and right on short sands beach. It's a great location. The food is what you'd expect... it's a quick burger/fries/fried food restaurant. It was neither bad nor anything special. It was fine. Which, a lot of times, is all you want. The prices aren't bad, however the portions are small. Given it's location, I'm... More

I live and work in town and am often asked where to eat while at Short Sands. If you're looking for basic beach food (fried, burgers, etc.) this is the best and cheapest place to find it. You're not going to get huge Angus burgers here, but you will get a very tasty, inexpensive burger and fried food. It's a... More

We were looking for a fast simple dinner and happened across Surfside. Fried haddock for me, chicken sandwich for my Mom and chicken fingers for kiddo. Friendly staff, food was yummy. Previous reviews say they don't take credit cards but they took them when we visited. Would definitely go back.
