Not sure what to expect on an old pier, we walked back into a narrow hole and were seated next to a bay-window with a beautiful view of the ocean. My pre-school grandchildren wore paper Pirate hats and were thrilled at watching pelicans and seagulls fly next to the pier and land on posts just outside our window. Food was... More

Service was really good-our waiter was X & he was very helpful in addressing questions we had about the menu. My husband & I both had Po'Boys & were intrigued by the chipotle crab mayo described on the menu, turns out it was imitation crab & that was disappointing. The breading was pretty flavorful & the onion rings were pretty... More

They had no seating in the main dining room, so we agreed to sit on the enclosed patio. After waiting for patrons who were leaving to pass by in the tiny space that was the hallway, we came to a room with loud children, people walking to and from the continued pier, but a nice breeze. The waiter was sweet,... More

I ate here with my boyfriend for the first time today. The service was both inept and extremely rude! We were not given silverware, so after waiting a long time my boyfriend had to go get it at the bar. His side solid never came out, even though when the other food was brought to us he asked the serving... More

The food price is average, quality ok, but main thing is the sunset sea view. Kids place, relax, not much room inside, easy to hit each other.

If I closed my eyes I wouldn't be able to tell you if I was eating shrimp or oyster. The batter was so heavy you couldn't taste the seafood. The service was good but the food was not worth the money.

Great food and atmosphere! Best food we had in SPI. Pirate ship arrives at 7:30, which was fun for the kids. Definitely recommend.

We've been here twice and enjoyed it. The restaurant extends out over the water, and the section we were in had large, sliding (open) windows and a beautiful view of the sunset. The kids enjoyed running out on the pier a few feet from the table. Appetizers and dishes were good, several vegetarian options, and the kids' meals were good... More
