This is a beachside spot with basic but good food. There is nothing else, so pay and enjoy. The cheeseburger was perfectly wonderful and set us up for the afternoon. So have lunch, walk across the ford to the beach, walk to the far end, see the wildlife, birds, turtles and dolphins and relax.

Enjoyed a nice quick lunch at the cafe before crossing the lagoon to get on the beach! Well worth the visit! The cafe had many items to choose from and it is well maintained.

We went to Tigertail beach early and by lunchtime the children were really hungry. We stopped at the cafe conveniently located at the top of the beach and had burgers and chicken. The burgers were really well cooked, with fresh salad and were just what we needed. The lady who worked in the cafe was really friendly and helpful and... More

Nice beachside cafe although it could do with a bit of TLC, our plastic table was broken. I thought that the prices were OK although yo will have had to pay $8 parking for all day but I think that you can get a two hour spot. The food was freshly cooked and the service friendly

Good quality food and large portions. They garciously filled our water bottles with ice water at no charge. Ice cream for the kids and adults from a cooler. Then a great chicken finger basket with waffle friea for our son. An awesome veggie wrap and yummy kettle chips for me! Loved it.

Agree with the review that describes this as overpriced fast food but its mire like overpriced food bought at walmart or publix.

Hi , Fast food is cooked in a microwave. We cooked our food on a Grill with lava rocks. Our wraps are made to order with fresh produce and we make our own sauces from scratch . We buy our food from either wholesale food companies and/or the local farmers market. Frankly your review is suspicious , it's entirely inconsistent... More

I was really surprised about this place, it's way better than just a beachside stand. My husband enjoyed his burger, and I got the fried grouper. Perfect spot for lunch during a beach day adventure.

Had 2 hot dogs and fries and one soft drink for 16$. Sausage served on a cold bun (not steamed, toasted or butterred) Had to put all the dressings ourselves from tiny enveloppes...very messy... Bring your lunch if you are going to the beach.

Thanks for your review. We're so sorry your Hotdog wasn't steamed and/or buttered , We warm our buns before they're served though. How did you like the way the top of the sausage was cut ? Cool eh !!! Next time you're here please ask for Tony and I'll make sure you get the very best hotdog you've ever eaten... More
