It's difficult to eat at the beach when you're allergic to shellfish, especially when fried food is involved. Unless the restaurant has a dedicated fryer, no fried food for you. The manager or owner (not sure) happened to come by my table so I asked him about the fryer situation. No such luck on a dedicated fryer (I really wanted... More

You can park on the beach & sit outside watching the waves, very picturesque. Umbrellas for the shade and at night they have 2 fire pits to sit around. From 2-6 they have happy hour & we sure like that. The food and service was great. All in all a great place to go to.

Since my condo is a 3 minute walk from the Beach Bucket I'm here a lot. Anytime friends or family is in town I always bring them here. I always tell them the food is average and the menu is limited but no one seems to care because the ocean view and the drinks are the main reason everyone is... More

We have friends who live next door. We ate here as it was a gorgeous day and we could have our dogs on the deck. It was a late lunch and we were hungry. We sat ourselves promptly, had to flag down a server for menus, long wait to take order, even longer to bring food, then really long to... More

Great place right on the beach. Good bet for an informal meal or cocktails. Loved the outdoor fire pit and the musicians.

This place was great! Stopped by and had breakfast outside on their deck while watching the ocean. It doesn't get much better than that. The servers were very attentive. My wife had the crab benedict, which she still hasn't stopped raving about, I had the chorizo omlet, also very good. I'll be visiting this place regularly.

Four of us had lunch at the beach on a Monday. Quiet day one would think? By the time we left, was almost full and I know why. Local spot with excellent choices, the tuna melt was out of this world. Don't let the condition of the hotel (under construction) stop you from eating here. -enjoy
