At first, you think Thumpers Bar and Grill is a dump and honestly, many bars are. Don't be fooled by the appearance, the food is extraordinary. We ate there several times...Jambalaya, crab cakes, blackened chicken and rockfish...so GOOD. Seasoned and cooked to perfection and the...More

Will not be back! After visiting this bar several times over the last couple of months, I enjoyed the selection of beer on draft, and Brittany and Dan as my bartenders. Once finding out that Brittany (who left in February) no longer working there, and...More

This place has been around a long time, and could really use some updating. It's a local's/Coastie hangout, and the food is okay. Probably mostly frozen stuff. Drinks are good, but service can be slow. Beware--even if you're 40, they will NOT serve you unless...More

The burger was massive and good, but the service was slow and the place was fairly run down (the men's room was disgusting). It looks like it might be a good place for a beer on Saturday night but I wouldn't recommend it for casual...More
