“Not what we expected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We heard so many raves about Stingrays and witnessed the long waiting lines. Finally we were able to get in for dinner. NOT NEARLY as good as we were expecting. The service was terrible. We could not believe how untrained they were. When my husband's beverage was never brought, the waitress's excuse was that the bartender was on the phone????? The food was average and the food was average. We have other favorites on TYB.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We each ordered a separate type of seafood and shared. Fried scallops, shrimp and fish. Each was delicious. I loved the light batter. The hush puppies had corn in the center and were good.

“not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Don't let the bad reviews fool you, they are correct. This restaurant is not good. We waited an hour and 10 minutes for bad food. Dirty inside and out, it is a perfect place to come if you are sandy, salty, sweaty from the beach. However, if you have cleaned up from the beach and eating dinner there, remember who sat there before you. Just walk down the side street to see how dirty. I cannot understand why tourists flock to this place, but it has what folks come to the beach for, fried and steamed seafood. I begrudgingly gave it 2 stars

“Has gone downhill...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

We have been going to Stingrays for years and have always LOVED the food. I have eaten seafood all over the world and have always enjoyed Stingrays simple approach. Unfortunately, the food and cleanliness of the place has gone downhill quite a bit. First, the prices have went up this year I noticed on average of 22%-36%. They are now not as competitive. Second, the portions have become smaller in size. And third, the quality simply isn't there, corn frozen, sausage served cold, drinks watered down, and the place is just dirty everywhere. For an excellent meal, Sundae Cafe!!!
