Great service on a night when they were busy and short staffed. Quality seafood with good sized portions. I don't like fried oysters but always order them here. Crab dip and crab sandwich are delicious as well. Don't miss this place if you're in Carolina...Beach.More

Normally this Alp doesn’t steer me wrong and it sort of didn’t this time. I should’ve looked at the poor reviews and the dates as well as the 4-star. The only thing that was good was my son’s chicken sandwich otherwise I would’ve given them...a 1. There are other reviews that discuss the BURNT fish tacos. The manager happened to come out and he wanted to subtly argue with me that they season this so heavy but the chard taste in my mouth said otherwise. The fried shrimp that’s in a previous traveler’s review was not this current year because my husband received 8 baby shrimp with cold fries. The crabcake was so-so but the fries that came with them were cold too. The coleslaw was shredded one color cabbage with hardly any dressing on it. The best thing was indoor, outdoor, and patio seating. They also get 2 stars for enforcing the mask policy for COVID!More

Great atmosphere but menu was a bit limited on seafood with just fish, fried oysters and fried shrimp. We ate upstairs and there was a beautiful view of the ocean. Had a shrimp basket and blackened grouper salad. Both were good but not amazing.

It used to be a lot better. Crab dip and service were good. However, my fiancé and I both ordered blackened mahi. Mine was definitely a little burnt but my fiancé’s was burnt to a crisp. We do appreciate that his sandwich was taken off...of our ticket. Good views.More

4 diners, 4 different meals, all would rate this restaurant as meh or poor. Definitely nothing special. Lots of better choices in the area. We have fish tacos, bbq sandwich, burger, and chicken sandwich. None of them were great. The view is great and the...waitress was nice but I would not return.More

The food was good. We had calabash shrimp, calabash oysters, and fish tacos. The only negative was the portions were small though food was priced accordingly. I only had 6 oysters which is more of a lunch serving size than dinner. The view was nice....I appreciated the efforts made for social distancing. Paper menus were used along with disposable silverware. Servers were correctly wearing masks.More

The restaurant has lots of space and various dining space from inside to outside to up and downstairs interior. Mahi Mahi sandwich was good so were the fried oysters. It was okay. Limited menu still in place. Granted it was a rainy day and the...COVID issue still in place but it was not long wait.More

The view was beautiful but the food just ‘eh’. It’s an extremely casual restaurant with paper plates and plastic utensils, at least outside on the covered deck. The service was acceptable. The tiki bar itself looked small but fun. Overall, I expected a little more...for the money and because it’s an oceanfront restaurant. We’re unlikely to be back.More

We stopped in for a mid-afternoon lunch when the restaurant was not very busy. We were seated inside so had a view of the swimming pool next door. The drinks were overpriced. Food was average at best. Two meals came out much sooner than the...rest so those individuals were nearly done with their meals before the rest of us started. Service was poor. When we were done with our meal, we had a long wait to get the server's attention and a longer wait to get our bill. Since the restaurant was not busy, there was no good reason for the wait. When you are paying for parking and eager to walk on the beach, the wait was just aggravating. To top it off, we just got our credit card bill and noticed that the charge was higher than the amount on our receipt. The server apparently decided she needed a bigger tip than her indifferent service warranted.More

You can rent upstairs, I'm not sure about the downstairs patio. Call the restaurant and ask for Sam..
