Enjoyed a delicious shrimp taco and homemade chips here with a cold beer! Good service and fresh food too! Others in our party had burgers and the best fries! They were lightly browned and cooked to perfection!

Have been to The Dive for lunch with the kids twice over the last few years. They think it is a blast (teens and preteens). The food has always been good and fresh. Especially the seafood and burgers. Staff has been very attentive and welcoming! Take a chance on The Dive and you will be pleasantly surprised!
