My wife and i just came back from eating here and we will never ever be back. First who the hell charges $6.25 for a draft beer? Second, the crab dip bowl was no bigger than a mini bun and 3rd, they said the burger were homemade. Who has homemade burgers that are condensed into hockey pucks. Food was just... More

You will never find shrimp like this. The steamer is actually behind the bar, and I am not a steamed shrimp person. To me it was just warm shrimp that I had to work to get at. Not here! The onions and spices added to these buggers make them a gourmet treat....and I didn't mind the work! We also had... More

Ate here a few times during the summer of 2015 because it was walking distance from our unit. We won't be back after waiting 45 minutes for hamburgers and getting scolded by the wait staff when we complained.

Cold beer, locals type bar. Shrimp were steamed on a pile of onions right behind the bar… plump and delicious!

This is a small, friendly, family owned OC pub (bar). It can be loud and crowded. Not really a place for small children. There is only one booth, the rest are small high tables or bar stools. The steamed shrimp was delicious... great flavor and price. We also ordered a tuna melt. This was a disappointment. I have never heard... More

Kirby's is a great local bar in the 94th street plaza. Friendly bartenders and great food. The tuna melt is very good and so are the chips. When you go there, you have to get the steamed shrimp. It is the best on the beach! Worth every penny!

This place has the best bar food in O.C. It is small, but it is worth it. Happy hour drink are cheap too! Try anything with seafood and you will enjoy. Beware the ship are spicy, but a great price at Happy Hour!

Have been a few times. Always great to get the crabmeat by the pound. The wings are very good and very hot. Great happy hour priced drinks. Only downside is not much room and stools hurt your back after a while.

We visit at least once during our trips to OC. Lisa the bar tender is very cordial. We were there during Crusin' weekend and it was crowded at lunch. We had the lobster bisque (lots of lobster chunks) and a turkey burger (huge). The bisque was delicious and very thick, The burger was much larger than the bun and was... More
