This is a place the locals go to, very small and cozy but a good group of people both working and hanging out. If you want something small and friendly this is the place. Drinks are decent but its all about the ambience

Long day of meetings and high pressure. Found the Shellback Tavern right on the beach sat and drank a pitcher of 805 beer and watched the sunset over the pier. Most tranquil.

Shellback is all about location, location, location! They are the closest bar to the beach there at MB Pier. Decent food, but more about the drinks, etc.

I stopped in for lunch today and was pleasantly surprised at the quantity and quality of the fish & chips lunch special ($11.95). My Becky, my helpful server recommended a few beers to compliment my lunch and even brought me a couple of samples to taste. On on quiet Tuesday afternoon, I had a nice table with a view of the Pier and ocean. A wonderful lunch with a million dollar view makes this a new favorite lunch spot.

Great location to enjoy a refreshing drink after a lovely day at the beach. You can’t get much nearer the beach than these guys are... very nice relaxing ambience, great music played at comfortable volume. Cheers guys!,
