Personable waitress, quick service, and great food for a fairly reasonable beach price here in Surfside Texas.

Don't waste your time or money. We had to return a dish that arrived burnt and got food poisoning from the dish they brought back. Who knows what they did to it. Oh, and we had a baby eating the food too. The waitress felt the need to tell us her life story instead of bring us our order. I... More

Stopped by for breakfast stayed around for the view. The staff was extremely friendly even though they were swamped. The view from the covered patio was breath taking.

Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here during a 3 day stay. All 3 meals were delicious and prices were reasonable. Enjoyed eating on the deck right on the beach. I would recommend it.

I had salad with chicken, good-sized portion and flavorful. We went back again on Labor Day and had quicker service with take-out, staff was helpful and... More

This is nice relaxing place to kick back and enjoy the beach view, the gulf right in front of you, and have some great food. We had the burger and it was great and big enough to share! The service was good and very friendly. We sat out on the covered porch to enjoy the pleasant day and the sounds... More

The food in my opinion was not that good. By the time we received our nachos (which was a HUGE serving) they were cold. My friend said their burgers were OK. Some of the food (French fries) I had tasted like it was fried in bad grease. And prices were on the high side. Not that many choices for food... More

Worst breakfast ever! Overpriced for the "buffet" that consisted of scrambled eggs, greasy bacon, sausage patties, undercooked potatoes and some pancakes that had so much cinnamon in them it felt like I was eating the beach and tastes worse. No amount of syrup or butter could save these. These were terrible and at $9.99 for an adult it was no... More
