We stopped here because we could walk across the road from our motel. It's an eclectic place, lots of color and funny decorations. We sat at the bar at first, not sure if we wanted to eat. The owner greated us, as well as his...More

This is not Goober from the Andy Griffith show.... We are locals here, and have never been disappointed at Goobers! The food is excellent. Pick anything off the menu and be prepared for an abundance of yum! Prices are very reasonable. Back yard is a...More

Fun, funky atmosphere. Great service. Great food. We were drawn in by the crazy appearance of the building & we were not disappointed! The Chopstick Shrimp appetizer is outstanding. I had the Cuban Sandwich & my wife has the Reuben; both were excellent. Nothing fancy,...More

Given the name you might think this has something to do with Andy Griffith and the TV show, but you would be wrong! The name somehow comes from the new owner and under new management this restaurant is decorated with a wild variety of lamps,...More

Love the blackened tuna salad with chutney and vegetable vinegrette. So glad to see Goober open again and excited to try and find the one at Myrtle Beach next trip there... at Broadway at the beach or the boardwalk I was told.

Goobers is colorful and tacky and fun. Their sandwiches are HUGE, so come hungry. Seafood is fresh. Definitely try the crab cake - perfect ratio of crab vs cake.

Two visits in one week. Both disappointing. Air was "broken" in half the building. Had other side wide open to compensate. Miserably cold. Food OK (Cuban sandwich) but instantly cold because of air. Second visit got salmon salad. Took 10 minutes to get dressing. They...More

First this is a funky little DDD type place. This is an overall review, not for a one-time visit as we go here on a fairly regular basis. The music is a little loud for me but the food is excellent. I could probably do...More

We were told to seat ourselves, which was fine, however there was only one table available. Service was okay at best. Soft drinks were served in cans, and other tables had to refill their tea and water. The table was sticky, as was the floor....More
