Loved this little restaurant. Ate there twice during our visit. Very small but the outside picnic tables offer a nice view of the water as does the bar seating along the exterior wall inside. Very reasonable and very fresh fish sandwiches etc. Attentive and friendly staff.

Stopped in here with a friend after reading other Trip Advisor reviews. The place is super small and we got one of the last tables. The service is friendly and efficient. We shared the fish platter which was fresh fried grouper, fries and coke slaw. The portions are huge so it was more than enough for the two of us.... More

This is a small restaurant in John's Pass that is very casual and would also be good for take out. My husband had the lobster roll and said it was amazing. We shared fried pickle spears that were hot, fresh and yummy. My blackened fish tacos were the best I've had. The two guys cooking did an awesome job and... More

We came across this small eatery while wandering around the waterfront at John's Pass. Not much to look at, but don't be fooled by the appearance, we had lunch of tacos & sandwiches which were tasty & freshly made. I can't describe how tasty the food was, with friendly helpful service & good value. The staff were happy to cater... More

Best food we had on this trip. Great food and friendly service. You have to try the battered cookies for dessert.

Small place - great food and service. Sara is perfect! Try the house fries with cheese and bacon - yum. I saw too many tourist stand outside and make a dining decision based on the appearance from the outside - don't make the same mistake. Get a bucket of beers, have some fish tacos or lobster roll and enjoy the... More

Grouper sandwich and the fish and chips were as tasty as ever. The service was prompt and attentive but the combination of the low ceiling and a large group, with children, caused an annoying noise level. Whether the reputation on Trip Advisor or because of operating costs, their prices are reaching a level that could discourage loyal customers as ourselves.... More

Very unassuming little spot that will not disappoint! Great kids menu, very fresh seafood and extremely friendly service.

I always thought blackened grouper was too Cajun for me. Boardwalk Grill changed my way of thinking on that. It had just enough spice to make it extra tasty. And you have to try their onion rings as an appetizer! Huge and worth it.

Thank Mary S

Established in 2007 We are a casual waterfront restaurant located on the boardwalk in Johns Pass Village. We started as a small ice cream and coffee shop in 2007. We slowly expanded over the next few years slowly bringing in more and more food items. Now we are a one stop shop on the boardwalk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and love to hangout on the boardwalk and talk about fishing. Come on out and try our Authentic New England Lobster Roll, our delicious fish tacos and of course our famous Boardwalk fries, you wont be dissapointed.
