Love the setting, good, easy food albeit limited menu. However the drink selection is fantastic and it is full of friendly people with a good juke box

Very small place right on the beach. It appears to be in a private community and parking is likely a nightmare at the heart of beach season. Not sure if you can actually access the beach or not, and it was not what I consider...More

Altogether funky and casual, but service was crisp and pleasant and the food was nice. We enjoyed eating and listening to the jazz concert on the grounds outside the restaurant. No stressed people eat here - it's very casual, friendly, and good.

Sort of dumpy and smells somewhat of beer. A quite good lobster roll - New England style with drawn butter. Generous portion. Good curly fries. Nice reasonable dinner

We stopped on the way back from Cape Cod, for a last hurrah beach and lobster roll experience. We got both and loved the food/service, but most importantly, Lenny's help and management restored my faith in humanity: Already in New Jersey I realized I'd left...More

My husband and I rented a cottage for a week in August at Hawks Nest beach. We spent many hours at the tiki bar which overlooks the beach. The food was great, especially the sweet potatoe fries and the Tuna/avocado wrap. Prices were also very...More
