We like to make at least one visit here when at the beach. Recently they have remodeled and removed the booths upstairs. Not sure I like that but, we were accustom to the booths. This trip was a "limited menus" as they prepare for season I guess. We decided to have Calamari (Very good) and crab cake sandwiches (OK). I... More

Good food with breathtaking views. The Tiki Bar is downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. The booth seats could be more comfortable, but the food is great!

This restaurant and bar is located right on the ocean and the tiki bar is at the end of what remains of the original pier. The food is reliably good but not great. The service is good. During the summertime you can hang out on the pier and listen to the live bands play on the weekends. Or you can... More

Everytime we stay at the Golden Sands we always eat here. They have the best seafood I've tasted, they're always friendly.

This is the go-to spot (weather permitting) for locals. Great service, casual atmosphere, best barbecue sandwiches in the area, and you cannot beat the view. Grab a table on the pier and relax!

It was really quiet when we went as it was a weekday of september, we really got to enjoy the view that the pier has to offer. Lunch was good, fair prices considering the location. Great service also.

Looked on TA to see what was good after a relaxing day at the beach and we found this Gem. Food was great and the establishment was also great. If you wanted to sit at the bar and drink inside you had a nice view of the ocean. They also have a small pier to eat on and also a... More

Had the best Mai tai I have ever had. Not cheap mind you. I had shrimp calabash that was delicious. My husband had crab sandwich which he loved. Great view. Limited menu but great food. Service was good. Will go back

Had fried oyster dinner with fries, slaw and hushpuppies. The oysters lightly fried and very good, although not the best I've ever had, they are worth ordering. Only complaint is the amount of slaw was meager, but good. Service was good and the venue(eating outside on pier) was excellent. Would recommend.

Thank Charles P
