I ordered the cat fish sandwich ($5.99), which came with french fries. I asked for cocktail sauce and it was very good. My son ordered the burger steak with fries gravy ($5.99) and he liked it but not the best. The service is quick, friendly and attentive. I would eat here over any chain restaurants like McDonald or Five Guys.

Prices are very reasonable and the food is what you expect for the price. It is an okay place to eat lunch.

Pretty good food and reasonable. Boyfriend had the catfish sandwich which he enjoyed plus collard greens. After paying for a few meals a lot more than they were worth, this was a nice breath of fresh air.

My wife and I ordered hamburgers. The burger was fresh and cooked to perfection. Can't beat the price! All good and fast!

We saw the reviews and came for lunch. The hamburgers are good - but not the hot dogs. We felt this was expensive even by beach standards. - and tough to get out of the parking lot

I am a lover of hot dogs. During most vacations I will try to find a really good hot dog. I found a hot dog that will make me come back. Spanky's makes a really good hot dog. The service is also good.

This is one of our FAVORITE places on the beach. Our grandkids and families LOVE to Eat At Spankys. Their visits here are not complete with Spankys. The eats are freshly prepared- plentiful portons- and if you want something special cooked- added- deleted- just ask. I have some food issues and am able to have it prepared my way. And... More
