Even though it is packed they are fast and friendly. Not to mention there food is delicious! We tried their burgers, fish and chips, calamari and baked fish and loved them all. They are also right across the street from the beach, so you have an awesome view while you eat with the option of indoor or outside seating. Loved... More

Bacon bleu cheese burger was cooked perfectly and bun was delicious. Waffle fries cooked crisp with great seasoning. Shrimp cocktail was generous and good. Right on the Seawall with great views.

We ate dinner there on football night wound up getting our food really fast even though they had a line out the door. I had the grouper sandwich and the wife had the fish tacos and man they stacked on the food, we had enough for another couple of people to eat, hot fresh and great tasting food.

I wish I had known more about the place before visiting. It's like a bar, restaurant, bakery all in one complex. We were greeted at the front, handed menus and told to get in line. You order food at the counter and they give you a buzzer to alert you to pick it up. Seating is self-serve. Tables were plentiful,... More

This is a great place to enjoy a good burger on the outdoor patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Very crowded but it was fairly quick and easy to find an open table. Yummy burgers!

Judging by the full parking lot, we knew we found a good 'spot'. We were looking for a place for lunch and drinks and we were not disappointed. The different areas were cool. (Rum bar, tequila bar, burger joint, and traditional bar area. Over the course of the weekend, we visited multiple times and tried all the different areas. They... More
