I am not typically the "beach," type, although I live near the beach. I have been to Big Surf because I saw that Taco Reho is parked next door. Well, Big Surf is small, people smoke near the outside bar, and it is just a...More

Finger food and lively crowd! Best when sun sets! No AC! Two bars! Has a fire pit beach level. Must pay for parking!

Concept is good- surfboards, timber frame indoor/outdoor seating, but cantinas usually have a little food. You have to go out to the taco truck to get something. Place feels dirty. Sorry

Laid back atmosphere. Bartenders are friendly and attentive. Outdoor games, fire pits, live music, and food truck on site. You won't have to fight as many tourists. More of a locals crowd. Great time!

The Big Chill Surf Cantina is a dive bar, in the finest sense of the word. Quirky, unique, and exceptionally comfortable, in a physical sense and in the ambience. In addition to the bar area, there are patio areas, which are inviting weather permitting. The...More

A friend of mine lives in nearby Lewes, and swears by this place. First of all, the tiki atmosphere is very inviting. The taco truck outside served up ridiculously great tacos and nachos, and I'm a bit picky about these things. Great spot!
