We recently brought our son and he ordered the Big Tony...a rib eye, fried shrimp and some fries....couldn't finish it, but he had fun trying. Bottom line, it's... More

Hit Zippers a couple of times as I was staying a few hotels down the beach. Pros: great location right on the beach, TV's with sports, friendly staff, did I mention the location? Cons: average food with above average prices, tired decor and fixtures

Zippers has a fantastic location right on the beach where you can watch surfers and enjoy your meal as well as listen to live music. The night we were there there was a very good band doing covers of Jimmy Buffet and classic 70-80s rock hits. The food is good although a little too American. I wish it were more... More

I have visited the famous Zipper's twice during my stay and loved it. The food is great and there is not a dull moment watching the surfers. You can just sit there with a cool drink and watch the activities or decide to take a swim and join the crowd.
