I loved the food and the enviornment was awsome! I really liked how close the location is to the beach.

We had breakfast on the porch with a beach view. Very casual. The waitress was quiet but efficient. Wonderful hot coffee. Hash browns and a veggie omlet. Hubby had French toast. Such a good portion he couldn't finish. Great value.

We heard that there was an all you can eat boiled shrimp dinner at this place on Friday's for $13.95. Happy hour beers were a buck fifty for the 16 oz Miller Lite or Pabst. This was the best thing about this meal. The place is nice enough but beware, it is one of the few places left in the world where you can smoke inside. I'm a smoker but the cigar/cigarette smoke in this place turned me off. I would never smoke inside a building anyway but there are those who do. It wasn't overpowering to me but most would find it offensive.

The shrimp were huge! but pretty much tasteless. The "drawn butter" they brought with the meal was a joke at our table. It was corn oil, yes, believe it or not. All 4 of us tasted it and when asking the waitress for real butter, she said "the cooks been servin' this all day"...

She brought us real "something" that tasted like clarified butter/margarine/oleo but at least is was not corn oil. The corn on the cob was ok but tastes like any corn on the cob that isn't fresh. The boiled potatoes were excellent! but we didn't come here for that.

Come to this place for a beer or two and a smoke. Try Moby Dick's on Wednesday night for their boiled shrimp dinner (if they have it) or Kody's all you can eat Wednesday fried shrimp and fries dinner. There are lots of other choices for food that are wayyyyyyyyyy better than this place. I almost feel sorry for them.

"We sat ourselves and had to grab our own menus. The one waitress working did not say one word our entire visit other than taking our order. She was rude and obviously did not want to be there. On top of that, she kept wiping her nose with a napkin inside her shirt pocket and never washing her hands after!!! The food seemed like it was just thrown together on a plate. It is was over priced for quality of food served here. Would defiantly not recommend.

The food is great and very laid back atmosphere. Being on the beach and sitting eating and enjoying a cold beverage of your choice and hearing the waves can't beat that. Can sit for hours and talk and just enjoy.
