Fodor's Review

This beachfront spot—which is really tucked away down a small avenue—bills itself as the "last local beach club," and more boldly, "the best place on Earth." Drawing a mix of locals and tourists, it's actually a perfect spot for a casual family lunch or early dinner: kids can have burgers and play on the beach while Mom and Dad enjoy grown-up drinks and simple fare such as homemade gumbo, steak, a burger, or seafood like crab-stuffed shrimp, fresh grouper, and grilled tuna steaks. At sunset, the ceremonial firing of the cannon is a favorite activity that draws big crowds for an all-around good vibe. Arrive early if you want to park your car in the lot or yourself at a table. Late-night folks pile in for live music and dancing.
