We met up with our car club here last weekend. We were able to get the whole back room which has an amazing view of the ocean. The wait staff was really great and accommodating. I requested a salad with special additions and they made it exactly how I wanted it. My husband had a Ruben since it was St.... More

Very much wanted to enjoy the nice weather and eat beach-front; there are fewer options for this than one would imagine in March. Anyhow, had good service and enjoyed the fish tacos. They were flavorful and on the spicy side.

Enjoyed a warm February lunch on the pier last week. Tried the shrimp tacos that were on special. They were great. Staff inside and out were especially friendly and helpful. Paid us just enough attention but didn't interrupt our lunch. When you go, always to the end of the pier You can order any food there, you can get inside.

Loved the view, even in a snow storm! The deck and outside tiki bar would be great in better weather. It was cold in the upstairs dining room, I would appreciated more frequent coffee refills. I'm not a mahi mahi eater....that's the primary fish offered in the fish sandwich and fish tacos. Several of my companions had the grilled mahi... More

This was very good stop for late seafood lunch. Upstairs dining with an ocean view. The staff is attentive. All of the seafood orders were very good that included shrimp, flounder, and oysters. This was fresh seafood well prepared. I would definitely return. We were there about two PM, well after the main lunch crowd (not that busy).

We were one of two tables in the upper dining room. The services was very poor, with the waiter not checking back until the meal was almost done. The food was good. The view was very beautiful. Because it was off season the beach was deserted. Would like to come back again to see if it is better during the... More

We like to make at least one visit here when at the beach. Recently they have remodeled and removed the booths upstairs. Not sure I like that but, we were accustom to the booths. This trip was a "limited menus" as they prepare for season I guess. We decided to have Calamari (Very good) and crab cake sandwiches (OK). I... More

Good food with breathtaking views. The Tiki Bar is downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. The booth seats could be more comfortable, but the food is great!

This restaurant and bar is located right on the ocean and the tiki bar is at the end of what remains of the original pier. The food is reliably good but not great. The service is good. During the summertime you can hang out on the pier and listen to the live bands play on the weekends. Or you can... More

Everytime we stay at the Golden Sands we always eat here. They have the best seafood I've tasted, they're always friendly.
