I ordered a PB burger.. I definitely recommend trying this! All sandwiches come with fries with different toppings.. the Parmesan garlic... More

Went with friends (adults & children) for late lunch/early dinner. The service was great & the menu was typical American beach fare. A definite step up from greasy boardwalk food served on paper plates!

We came in the weekend they opened for the season. The place was hopping. Great drinks and appetizers. When our entrées arrived we were very happy. Seafood risotto and New York sirloin steak. Both perfectly cooked with nice presentations. Our waitress Gina was top top-notch. There was a nice mix of locals and tourists. This place is always a favorite... More

Service was good, location was great, about 4 tables were sit at the same time like us, so, it was slow, but understandable. The kids Mac n cheese was not the best, coming from a couple of Mac n cheese experts... My husbands burger was ridiculously over cooked (Ordered medium rare, came cooked through) and I had an omelet, with... More

It was going to be hard to win us over after a pack or grannies stole our table..grrrr..but win us over they did. The staff was very friendly, professional and went over and above to take care of us. The food was not the average touristy beach fare. It was awesome! First time trying "Fried Ribs". Just the right amount... More

I have been coming to OOB my entire life and have been walking big Big Daddys thinking it was just a drinking establishment. Luckily, due to the recommendation of a new co worker before my annual trip, got to try it last night for the first time. I will start with the only negative, which was the wait time. We... More
