    The Hummus and Fish Tacos are amazing! Also try the House Margaritha and ask for their specials, the Salmon Salad we got was great as well! Nice staff and reasonable prices.

    Everything we tried was great! Go for the shark attack, bloody mary, fish tacos and jerk chicken. The homemade hot sauce is also killer.

    Teriyaki burger is so yummy! This place also has great tortilla chips and salsa. Fries are alright, but they put a lot of salt and pepper on the fries. Ask for none or to go easy on seasoning.

    Far and away the best place on the beach. Fish tacos are bomb. Always a long wait so post up at the bar for a drink while you wait for your table. Banging sushi, but only on Wednesday's.

    A local favorite. Seating is limited but the conch, crab, clams and more are worth the wait. While here, take a trip around the world by exploring the license plates that cover the walls and ceiling. Read more

    Fish tacos and the jerk burger were both good. Fries here are quite unique (in a very good way). Unsweetened ice tea (the only way they serve it) was good too. Will be visiting this place again!

    Salsa had a bit of a spice kick. Had to wait an hour to be seated (unless you go to the open bar) but this is during vacation season. Jerk chicken was packed with flavor. Service great!

    They have some of the best steamed, spiced shrimp on the beach. Parking is limited, but there is a public beach access nearby folks use for overflow parking and walk.

    My favorite beach restaurant by far! Small and cozy, great atmosphere, good food, and all sorts of great beers (imports) on TAP.

    Sunshine Margarita Grande is a must, especially if mamma needs a refill! Nachos are always # 1 for appetizers & a BOFF is a given

    The only thing good here was my drink Lost Tortuga (Light rum & Spiced rum, Creme de banana, Orange & pineapple juice). The food was meh. Anything in the menu w/jerk seasoning was bland.

    After an hour wait, the food was not what we expected for a place that was featured on Diners Driveins and dives. Subpar at best. 100% not worth the wait/money
