We have eaten at many places around town in the past ten years. None of them we tried has been great for a good burger, until now! This is a small joint, nice outside seating just east of the Hampton Inn on Flagler. Limited menu, nice beer and wine selection, and excellent and beef burgers. The price was terrific as... More

Salty Dunes is a comfortable restaurant with outdoor seating. THis is a place I bring friends when they come to visit. Portions are ample and the food is delicious. The menu provides wraps, sandwiches, and entrees. On my recent visit I tried the rack of ribs. The meat was well seasoned with just the right amount of BBQ sauce (if... More

We read the great reviews and wanted to eat here. The first time we tried for dinner, it closed at 4:00 that day ( my fault for not checking the hours). The second time, I called ahead to make sure they were open. I was told they may close an hour early if they are not busy ( they were... More

What a nice find! While walking, we decided to pop in for lunch. I had the shrimp and crab salad, hubby had the mahi-mahi wrap. BOTH were excellent. The onion rings were killer, but the crinkle cut fries were lousy. Everything else is great, so please do away with those cheap fries. Our waitress was great, she was running the... More

Friends had told me about the "huge " order of onion rings and had to see for myself! It is a very large order and they were delicious. Had the Mahi salad and it was delicious as well. Actually everything I observed being served looked great.

The Burgers are truly delicious and the onion rings are the best I have had in years. The chicken tenders are fantastic. Solid chicken and a huge portion. Be prepared to ask for a take home box. This place is definately for outside patio dining only.

The food here was just excellent, and right next to the hotel. Easy to just drop in for a casual and delicious lunch. I'll definitely be back!

We had heard that they were known for their onion rings and weren't disappointed! Great friendly service. Portions are generous and can be shared. Chicken tenders were huge, hand battered, and delicious.

I have had lunch here on a few occasions and always really enjoyed it. It has a very homely feel about it and you get the impression that everything is made fresh. You can have healthy options if you wish. The staff are also very friendly. I would recommend it for a relaxing lunch away from the beach.

This is a cute little outdoor spot on Flagler. Great for watching the goobers in trucks go by blaring their country music! We arrived about 2:00, so the kitchen was out of a lot of things since they were going to be closing soon. I had onion rings and the Big Fish sandwich, blackened. The fish was very moist and...
