So much potential with a great location and menu but very disappointing to see the poor reviews that management could have prevented if if actually acted at the time rather than reacted to reviews. I mean really - defending a generic photo of a burger...More

If we could eat here a few times a week, we would! They cater to everyone. Their seafood dishes are delicious. Service is extremely efficient and pleasant. The only downside can be the wait. They only take reservations for 9+ and even then, those fill...More

With a 30 minute wait on a weeknight, we were excited to score a booth in the bar. Unfortunately, the music was on blast and we couldn't talk at all. Had to shout our order to the server. Good chicken quesadilla, okay fish sandwich. The...More

Must say that this seafood was mouthwatering. Being the first time in the area, it was recommended to me by a fellow I struck up a conversation with at the beach. He highly recommended it and he was correct. Lobster Tail was scrumptious. Try and...More

We stopped for a late lunch.. Wasn't busy but service was slow. Burger was good, fried fish sandwich was average but Crab Ball dinner was terrible. Cranky server took them off the check but clearly was not happy about it. Not returning

I have given them many chances but honestly after the third strike we won't be back. The regular Bartenders are really bad from a customer service perspective. Average food at best! You'd do better just hitting the boardwalk area. I won't bore you with all...More

Please bore me with the details. My phone number is 7321-830-2770. There are always managers that can help if you have a problem, but obviously you didn't ask for one. I have spotters in the building often and if a bartender is inattentive, they are...More

Stopped by for a few drinks after a day at the beach. Did not eat here so I can't comment on the food. Bar was crowded around 4pm on a Saturday. Service was quick and friendly. Would like to return for a meal.

The photo is a generic photo and nowhere does it say Burgers (which by the way are only $9.99), are on the special "Buy one-get one half off" menu. Sometimes they are, but it's really the chefs discretion every Tuesday to make up the menu....More

My wife loved the garlic crab and everyone else had a decent meal. Calamari was well cooked and tasty. Prime rib was good but small portion. Crab balls were disappointing. Atmosphere would have been better if they hadn't crammed tables into ever available inch, to...More
