Excellent...Truly picturesque venue. Unfortunately, both the service and the kitchen are unpredictable. You could have the most memorable evening...or witness ineptitude incarnate. (Either way, it ain't gonna be cheap...which warrants the "poor" rating.) Staff turnover has always been an issue...to the point that my wife and I no longer invest in employee comradeship, as its proven short-lived. That's not to... More

We were staying in middle island and didn't realize we had access to the pool there so we got a temporary membership to Shoals Club. The kiddie pool was the highlight and where we stayed the entire time. The chair guy for the beach was useless and couldn't even figure out how to put an umbrella in the ground. The... More

We received a temporary guest membership to The Shoals Club with our house rental and couldn't have been happier. We ate a delicious lunch there almost every day and enjoyed the pool during high tide and the beach at low tide. Extra bonus...our children loved the pool games organized by the club staff.

If you are renting on the island try to get a membership at this club. It is on the ocean and has great views. There is plenty of covered seating for enjoying the view out of the sun! If you are a member, you can get a beach chair and umbrella. The pool is great with plenty of seating and... More

Lovely, uncrowded pool with plenty of chairs! Great views! The beach is eroded, but still a nice walk! Cute outdoor cafe area - heard the shrimp tacos are delish!

we were celebrating with just 19 people the marriage of our son. The food was very good as was the service. They really catered to us and made everyone feel special. All the orders were correct. The food came on time. A great place to have a large group of people.

Went here for an anniversary dinner. What a disappointment. The corn/crab chowder which we were told was not to be missed was a huge letdown. 7 of the 9 in our party order it and all servings were either cold or lukewarm. The crab was a small crab dangling over the edge of the cup. The entrees proved to be... More

At first we were seated in the large room at the back where a large party was already seated. Soon another group arrived and the first group proceeded to greet them, loudly, like old lost friends. The noise was such that we asked to be moved. The staff quickly moved us out of that room and onto the smaller one.... More
