Nice place to take the dogs and eat outside. Brings water bowls for the dogs. Sits next to the draw bridge. If you love beer, this is the place. They have a special if the draw bridge goes up, beer is a dollar. Goes up again, while you are sitting there, beer is 25 cents. Plays rock and roll music... More

We stopped in for an evening drink as it was close to the hotel. Good service, fair beer selection at normal prices. Nice to sit out on the porch and relax watching the sun go down over the bridge. We did not eat, but looking at the food served at the next table the servings looked both good and plentiful.... More

The SURF culture atmosphere located right on Flagler Avenue in and amazing location which allows you to stroll the full length of the entertainment district with purpose. I highly recommend sitting at the bar because if Teri (this young lady is both highly professional and truly genuine) is working you're about to experience New Smyrna Beach at it's best! Food...

Friendly barmaid. Wine was way overpriced at $8 a glass. We did not have anything to eat because we felt that the menu was so overpriced. It is a very clean establishment.

This was the best end to the day we could have had after an afternoon on the beach with the dogs. Our four legged friends were allowed to sit with us outside, instead of having to stay in the truck. A great atmosphere. The food was delicious. The burgers were cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. The service was fast... More

Just came for a drink as I was intrigued by the colourful tiki style décor and paintwork outside. Was very quiet inside apart from some workmen who seemed to be on their lunchbreak and were knocking back the brews. Didn't have anything to eat just a pint of Landshark.

The fish and burgers are excellent here and very reasonably priced. The mahi mahi was delicious and big - 3 pieces. Also comes with salad or soup.

We stopped here while in town for a bite to eat. Food is excellent. Staff is friendly and eager to accommodate. Went back for another meal and to watch some football the next day. Highly recommend this place. They play nice music (blues/jazz) too.

The 4 of us arrived for lunch with no other customers in sight, and we were seated quickly. My chicken sandwich arrived with lettuce and tomato and avocado and looked good with fries. As I attempted to cut the sandwich in half I thought that I must be trying to cut through a toothpick so I took the sandwich apart... More
