Really happy to have visited this restaurant. I've always wanted to go since they where featured on man vs. food. Amazing environment. Food selection is phenomenal! The hotdog is a must try item.

I was happy we stopped here. The food was very good, and served hot, and within a reasonable time of us ordering. Our waiter was friendly and offered suggestions on what to try for our first visit. The fish seemed very fresh and was cooked just-right. The kids menu kept our kids happy.

Not my cup of tea! The drink we had that came in a coconut was great!! I ordered the hot dog bites. Deep fried hot dog. Blah to say the least. We ordered onion rings - and were all but forgotten. The restaurant just wasn't that busy when we were there. I would not return to this restaurant unless we... More

Food was good but it was the staff and ambiance that would have me coming back again. The wait staff were friendly. The place is dog and family friendly.

We visited for dinner during spring break which is a very busy time. This is a little outside the main village area. The food was decent and we we able to get a table quickly. Nothing fancy but good enough.

When we arrived we had to wait for the hostess named Siena to come to great us. When she finally arrived we told her that we would like a table outside by the water and that we were waiting for some of the others guests to arrive. She was very rude. She answered my question with a very nasty facial... More

My husband and I went for dinner. There was barely anything to chose from on the many that wasn't fried. Everything but a handful of items were deep fried. I feel like corn dogs and fries are a kid's meal and not a filling meal for adults. The booth we sat at was sticky. And we think our waitress was... More

Brought my family here. Good atmosphere and food was good. Outdoor or indoor dining was cool. Seen lots of dogs chilling table side. I had the clam dinner, thought the portions of clams were very small for the price otherwise everything else was good.

Nice high table seat right by the water. This place oddly enough has great Clam Chowda and Barbeque Ribs. A bit pricey, but very good.
