This time we just had drinks, and they were delicious. I like tequila sunrises and my wife likes margaritas, so we tried one of each. We weren't disappointed, and the prices were reasonable compared to some other drinks along the boardwalk.

Good selection & Fair prices - Oysters were delicious & Kim Crawford Sauvignon a very reasonable $6.50. Short walk from Beach Strip Hotels

They have amazing daily specials! 99 cent beers and meals from under 7 dollars some under 5 dollars! We have had the shrimp and the burgers 🍔Both are great! Check the specials on the board when you go in.

Just stopped in here for an appetizer, Crab & Artichoke dip (which was delicious!) But what made the biggest impression was the facility itself. It was a very hot day, but outside on the veranda they had fans and misters going which made it very...More

This place is pretty small. A group this size would probably require separate tables. Our last visit we sat at connected picnic tables and 8 of fit comfortably. Its a small beach bar and grill. Awesome food, maybe look at... More

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
