Place is your typical loud, waterfront bar with average food. ( It all depends on what you order). Bartends are either friendly or NOT. Most not. table service is good, place needs paint and cleaning. even though its outside, they smoke. I had boneless wings, they were good, wife did not like here meal. they need to smile and get...

Great place for eating or just watching the band. Lots of tv for sports and food is very good. Along the waterfront it's a great bar with live bands

Just a little off the beaten bath..not far off of US 19, this place has the best (at least in my wife's and my opinion) Crab & Shrimp Bisque Soup we have ever had, loaded with crab. I was eating their great New England Clam Chowder and totally enjoying it when my wife asks me to try the Bisque....sadly my... More

Will someone please teach their cook how to cook shrimp? Yes, you can overcook shrimp! It becomes hard and rubbery. Hubby says burger was good, but who goes to the water just for hamburgers? Such a shame that a waterfront restaurant can't do peel and eat shrimp properly.

Portions were huge. We had the fish and it was great! We had a piece of fish each to take home. Very reasonable as well. Our service was a little slow but friendly. We were not in a hurry and enjoyed the view as the sun was going down!!

We had 5 adults and 2 kids at our party. The waitress forgot drinks, forgot sides ordered, and didn't come back to check on the table. We had to keep flagging down whatever staff we saw to try to get service. We were sitting on the deck and it was dark! Finally my sister in law found a light switch... More

Our friend first took us down here in 2014, we instantly fell in love, the drinks were great (so great I'm missing some of my first night there) and the band was great and all the locals were dancing and having a good time. We came back in May 2016 with our 9 month old, they were very friendly still... More

We decided to go to Whiskey River after looking at various reviews of local restaurants. After some maneuvering around back streets we found it and as we drove up we wondered if we'd made a mistake as it looked like it might be an unsavory place to say the least. However, we were there, so we went inside or rather... More
