Where the Locals Hang Out

It’s laid back and casual. Been that way since we started in 1926. Here everyone’s somebody and nobody cares. We overlook the Gulf of Mexico; the beach is at our front door and the sunsets are pretty terrific. There’s live entertainment most days, as long as we can find the extension cord. Great seafood, sizzling steak, chicken and seafood wraps, shrimp and crab chowder, smoked ribs and our famous beach burgers. During reduced seating capacity, Happy Hour has been discontinued.

Do you take reservations?

Sorry, we don’t. Upon arrival, visit our hostess stand to get your name on the first-come, first served list.

Can you tell me how long the wait is?

I could but things can change in an instant. The closer it gets to sunset, the longer the wait can be. (See sunset  time below). If you come earlier, the view is still awesome and you’re less likely to wait as long. We do have a bench near our hostess stand and shoppe.

We're waiting for our friends ... can we be seated before them?

Everyone in a party must be present before a group can be seated.

Can our group sit on the deck?

Because of how the deck is configured and Fire Marshall rules, we are unable to move tables. We only have one table on that deck that can accommodate 9-12 people. More than likely, large parties will be seated in our air-conditioned dining room due the high demand for our deck seating.
