“Does ANYBODY work here?”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Our second visit. Last year we went, waitress in roller skates friendly took our order. Today, no waitress at all, only a bartender and the place was a mess. All the counters facing the beach were empty but still had garbage, ketchup spilled, a mess. Took a pass and went upstairs to Hooters. What happened to this place? Middle of spring break week and its like a ghost town, a dirty ghost town in there...no patrons, no waitresses, nobody to clean up. Hopefully it was just an off day, but really during spring break week? No excuse there

“Really good!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We sat at the bar overlooking the beach and enjoyed a burger and philly cheese sandwich with onion rings. The cherry limeade and slushes were great on a hot day.

“Awesome food and service”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

The view is amazing as it is right on the beach. I read some of the terrible reviews and all I can say is that we went on a Saturday afternoon. It was very busy. We did not have to wait and our food was fast, hot and delicious. Our server was awesome and very friendly.

“Needs a refresh”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

Burgers OK, but peculiarly everything cooked comes out lukewarm. If William is on duty you'll get good service; if not, its a bit chaotic.

“Cold burgers”
Reviewed 4 February 2013 via mobile

Cold, old food. Out of a lot of beer. Service ok. Only eat here for a last resort. The only good thing about this restaurant is the view and location.
