Every year we come we try and try to give "The Grill" business. I want so badly for them to succeed. It has a great location and a cool covered outdoor seating. But, here it comes, it's so slow, they have a very small menu and it is not the cleanest place ever. I think they need help but probably... More

Don't even think of going here. Water glass had lipstick on it. Margarita's had no flavor and definitely no tequila. Only ordered an app and then left because experience was so bad. Do not get crab dip, horrible without taste and served with packaged stale crackers. Stay away! Waitress was at least sweet and personable.

Ate here for dinner on a Saturday night. Not very crowded early and we were able to get a table right away outside. It was a beautiful evening and there was a cool breeze. Service was fine and food was good. I had Shrimp and grits and my husband had the Cajun Chicken Sandwich. Great place to relax with a... More

Being locals, we have tried this place several times and have been disappointed by the service and quality of the food. It has recently undergone new management and we are excited about their plans for a new menu and some changes, like an outdoor bar and more music by local musicians. Going to give it another try, especially the 3... More

After spending the afternoon at the beach I was starving and could use a cold drink! This fit the bill perfectly. We had a nice booth outside and watched as people went by while enjoying the weather and breeze. The food was great and I had one of the best strawberry daquiris ever! The price was reasonable and the location... More

I had the fish Poorboy sandwich and it was delicious! White cod that was light battered, no fishy taste and not oily - perfectly seasoned and bun was soft and warm. Coleslaw was wonderfull! Iced tea was very good, not too sweet. Sat inside in a booth, but outside area was very nice!
