Lots of variety on the menu. Not crowded, fast service. Our waitress was wonderful, especially with 7 of us. All of us were happy with our dinner, which says a lot!

This restaurant stays busy so the food is usually fresh. Their salads could use a little improvement with fresh Mixed greens! During the Spring and Summer months their salads taste better. The service is very good and they are courteous. They have a cute place.

The Big Kahuna is an excellent choice. Lots of toppings, great tasting sauce and a thin crust makes this one of the best pizzas in Surfside Beach!
