This restaurant offers the only sunset view on Atlantic Beach and is always a delight to sit on the deck and eat dinner to a gorgeous sunset right on the water.

We ate outdoors, which made for a very nice view of the water. So I give this place high marks for location. And our server was very friendly--even told us a little about himself. But I was not impressed by my fried flounder. I do believe it was fresh (not frozen), but it was tasteless. I grew up eating fried... More

So, you sit down and get a bucket of hot hushpuppies with butter. Death in a bucket but they are so good. The puppies have onion flavoring, and are shaped like onion rings, which is a nice change from the nugget shape most places give you. I had the meatloaf, very good, with a Guiness gravy. I subbed creamed spinach... More

My wife and I searched for what we thought was a good seafood restaurant. We goofed! Ordered flounder and shrimp. Shrimp was just ok, Flounder was horrible. My guess is they dropped the hard frozen flounder into hot cooker. Did not look nor taste good. My recommendation; if you are looking for good, well prepared and tasty seafood, go someplace... More

Want good food? Want a spectacular view? Want great service? Then go to McCurdy's. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. Prices are very reasonable for fresh seafood caught that day. Outside on the patio is right on the sound. Friendly atmosphere to get drinks and have a good time

Very busy at 5:pm, had a 25 minute wait. Other tables were given complimantory hush puppies when they were waited on, we were not offered any. Waitor was too busy talking to the other tables. Food was good, once we got to order and got served.

I came with high hopes at McCurdy's for the shrimp and grits which is one of my all time favorites. Well for tonite was my least favorite and I would wish that I have ordered something else. I forgot, I did: the appetizer was fried calamari chewy and with no seasoning of the batter. But let's get back to the... More

Average place . The onion rings served as an appetizer had a mild taste of seafood. I do not eat seafood, so I picked the half rack ribs. They were ok, not remarkable on any way. My husband had the shrimp and grits ( too much grits and also had a lot of added cheese -per my husband). Service was... More
