If you are looking for a fun place with an excellent staff, good food, plentiful drinks, live entertainment in a beautiful setting then look no further than The Patios Tiki Bar in Little River! We (40 of us) enjoyed a full fours of fun and we are so thankful to the staff (especially Lisa!) for making our celebration all that... More

I want to start this by saying, I NEVER give negative reviews. I always try to tell my positive experiences. But I was so disappointed with this restaurant. I wanted to go somewhere on the water and eat for Mother's Day with my family. We decided to go here. Never again. We couldn't even see the water from where we... More

Right next to Big M Casino cruise. Several inside and outside table. Drinks reasonably priced. Have food also. Waitress and manager very friendly. I believe they have theme nights(on Tues. It was kareoke). Seemed to be many locals there ( usually means good place) Food definitely better here than what we saw on Casino Boat.

We played golf at nearby Brunswick Plantation and this place was recommended by the group in front of us. Excellent suggestion and we will visit again. Delicious unsweetened ice tea, Philly reuben and Mad Tuna sushi. Excellent food and prompt service. We sat outside under the trees with wonderful vote of the ICW. Highly recommend.

Great lunch place with a good sandwich. Ice tea is home brewed. The Ruben is huge, tasty and amazing. My wife had the Soprano Italian Cold cut sandwich and it was nice size, with quality meat and cheese. Mom had a cheeseburger and it was huge, with a Kaiser type roll. Nice touch. Would like to see the up-charge removed... More

Every time we visit, we come here at least 2-3 times a week. The food is fresh and alwsys delicious. The outdoor seating is beautiful and peaceful, a great place to sit and have a cold beverage of your choice. 😉 They have great entertainment every evening and they are actually very good. The service is fast and the employees... More

Visited recently with 4 couples for dinner and that was our only mistake. Most choices tend to be either Sushi or Burgers and sandwiches, not many choices for full dinners. Our Santa Fe pannani was very tasty as was the Ruben's 2 of us had. My personal feelings is its more of a lunch/brunch location, but when the weather cooperates... More

We always have fun at Patio's. The new sushi bar is really well done, though I am not a fan of sushi. Daily music, food specials, and good times are always guaranteed.

My family went to the Patio's Tiki Bar for lunch today and could not believe how bad the food and drinks were for everyone. The waitress told us the fish and shrimp were frozen from Costco. I just had to laugh that she actually said this to us. The restaurant is only down the street from shrimp boats. We paid... More

All seafood options were frozen and from Costco. Yep, the server told us that when I asked if the seafood fish options were caught fresh. At least she was honest! I don't think anything was freshly made. Just not impressed. On the bright side, the view of the intercostal was beautiful. Just not for me or my family. Disappointed!
