“WOW .. new owners turned this around!!!!!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Outstanding meal for us ... Kids loved the homemade chips and fried hotdogs! The turkey wrap is large enough to share. PLUS the turkey wasn't packaged turkey ... tasted like the real thing! Tuna wrap was great ... chicken wrap was amazing ... and the kids grilled cheese was great! You must try the sweet potato waffle fries ......there are a lot of options for a cute beach restaurant. Lots of food for the money! All this and you get a great view of the ocean. Don't miss stopping here .. you won't be disappointed!

Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

Right on Craigsville Beach!! The foods isn't this mornings catch fresh, but its good none the less. Typical snack bar food. Fried calamari, clam strips, fried mozzarella, onion rings and fries. The owner was very friendly and hooked me up with some extras. Can't complain. I definitely recommend it if your looking for a quick bite to eat on the water.

“Entire Paycheck”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

This place was a childhood classic. Grilled cheese or french fries and chocolate shakes at the beach in the little paper trolleys! Now.. I would never go there again.. The prices are absurd.. One chocolate frappe is $8 .. They are have the normal cup size.. What a rook. Family environment? No way-- you'd spend a weeks work of groceries here.

“Not worth the effort”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

I think the fried clam bellies were actually pretty good, but it's hard to tell because there were so few of them. They gave me enough tartar sauce for a reasonably sized order but not enough clams. The rest of the tray was filled with decent fries and onion rings thought I had to ask for some no-name ketchup that tasted more like tomato sauce. Beware - it's cash only, as although their sign points to an ATM at the place next door (seemingly different but owned by the same people) -- they are not open tr same hours. I thought I had enoughJ cash but somehow when she totaled it I was a dollar short (now realizing I paid about 3-4 times what is reasonable for the amount I got). She watched me say I would go next door and did not mention it was closed. Then I came back and someone else offered to open next door so I could use the ATM. I paid a $3 ATM fee because I was short $1. I went back, gave her my money, and after all that never got my $2 water. Save yourself some trouble and bring a cooler or stop somewhere on the way in.

“Good beach food”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

Overall a good lunch! Adults had seafood, the kids had grilled cheese and chicken fingers. Service was quick, drinks were cold, food was hot, what more could you ask for?
