We have been going here for years and look forward to our next trip in May. While Hagan is no longer running the operation you can be assured that it is still the high quality product as before. I usually get the reg burger and my wife the lion fish if it is available. This is by far the best... More

Actually, I am not a burger person, but my husband is. I went for the lionfish sandwiches which are fabulous. Even the vegetable sandwiches were great. My husband would walk here when I was diving since he liked the burgers so much. after about two weeks, he switched over to the lionfish sandwiches too. Fun place. You can relax on... More

We had burgers with onions, cheese and bacon- they were very good ($8)- and messy- glad we brought them back to our hotel to eat them. Also, he puts barbecue sauce on the burger unless you request otherwise.

Stopped there for the renown Lionfish sandwich. Major hunt the previous weekend and the chef didn't have any to offer the day we went. Chef wasn't the man featured on the website. Did it change owners? The burger was good and hit the spot.

I got the kite burger and it was the best burger that I have ever had. It was juicy, and messy to eat, but I loved it. On our second visit there was a line up for the burgers; we were told it would be about 20 minutes, so we ordered. It took about 45 minutes and if we had... More

Everything is individually cooked and there is only one person working. So if you have the time, go here. Great food.

I went for the lion fish burgers and there was one left. Nothing special in the taste department. His regular burgers were superb.
