We ate dinner here while staying in the area for a work conference. I'm a vegetarian and so I always worry about options at burger joints, but they've got an amazing veggie burger-one of the best I've had! They also have lots of other options and killer fries! Cool atmosphere,good food, and decent prices. Definitely worth a stop!

All were hot , juicy, large and the biggest, best onion rings I have ever had. There are license plates on the walls from all over the country. The service was excellent... More

We ate at the 73rd Ave. location and had a great experience. We were able to be seated at a table outside by the pool. We had a funny and attentive waiter. The burgers were good and reasonably priced. We would go back again.

Love this place! Great food & friendly atmosphere. The prices are reasonable and everyone loves throwing free peanuts on the floor and coloring on the table cover keeps the kids entertainmened. Haven't ate anything at this place I wouldn't try again. Definitely recommend! !

This is a very loud and boisterous restaurant. Lots of people laughing and obviously having a very good time. The hamburgers were pretty good. There are peanuts everywhere, so if you have an allergy, beware.

I only got a few drinks here as it was right next to our hotels pool. The drinks were tasty but weak. The menu had one price listed and they charged me a different amount each time.

Made a huge mistake visiting the Barefoot Landing location on spring break. Lunchtime was extremely quiet so that should have flagged us to go somewhere else. So many locals recommended the burgers so we had to try. Was seated next to the loud kitchen by a unfriendly waitress. Ordered a taco salad which according to the menu was supposed to... More

Very casual and laid back burger and beer place. The burgers ar excellent and right staff are help full. We go here every time we are in Myrtle Beach. Only had one experience where service was not great, but considering how often we go here, sometimes things just go wrong. We have had enough great experiences to forgive one screw... More
