A friend and I decided to stop by for a late lunch and were so pleasantly surprised! We each ordered burgers, and they both were delicious! Our waitress was very nice, the cook was friendly, and the food was amazing! Definitely coming back!

Restaurant was hot with flies. My shrimp poboy sandwich was not fixed the way I ordered. Service was slow. However grandson ordered wings and enjoyed them. Daughter had Philly cheesesteak which was ok. Think it is a better bar.

We have been to the Dive on several occasions now. They have excellent homemade fries, seasonal corn chowder, and the best burgers we have found on the island. Sit at the bar or in a booth/table during the day. Late evenings, its much more crowded...More
