Nice atmosphere. Ate outside on the picnic tables facing the water. Fried scallops basket was good -- scallops were tender and juicy, but fries were soggy from the scallops. Great cole slaw. While eating, we enjoyed watching kids playing in the sand near the beach. Outside eating was packed, but inside there was plenty of room. Saw a stage nearby... More

This is a fun bar. They often have live music and "trivia night" every Friday. The prices are much higher than the product. But they have the market for live music in Colonial beach, so we go there!

Excellent crabcakes. The oyster basket was also delicious. The drinks were satisfying. Excellent service from Amy. The "polar plunge" entertained us (but we did not go in).

When you go you have to try the Specials they are worth the money. The food is ALWAYS GOOD and the Service is excellent. You become part of the family upon stepping in the door. You can wear anything from a Fine Suite to your Swimming Suite and still be dressed appropriate. The outside Beach themed bar and tables serve... More

Great break away from the city. Calm and peaceful surroundings just off the water. Locals come in on their golf carts or pull I on their boats and jets skis. Bands on the weekends during the warm months. Food is good - burgers are pretty good and big. Sandy area for the kids to play or walk along the water.... More

We aren't seafood people, but a local suggested the restaurant and we enjoyed eating outside. Staff was fantastic! We loved sitting outside on the dock...even with the heat. It was really crowed on a Tuesday night so it was evident that the seafood was brilliant. However since some of us were not seafood aficionados, they ordered non-seafood - and it... More
