Clean. Large dining areas with tables/chairs, highchairs. Friendly efficient staff. Minimal ocean view from indoor dining-much better view from outdoor dining. One of the best filet mignons ever! Seven inch lobster tail is delicious, sweet & tender! Asparagus prepared to perfection! After dining out daily for the past three weeks, we were not disappointed.

If you like cake donuts, this is a great change from Duck donuts. No yeast donuts here and its only negative.

Fantastic baked goods & very friendly staff. Everything is baked from scratch. They also sell coffees and other beverages, but, we only bought baked goods so I can not review the coffees. They also have books and gifts for sale.

We were given a recommendation for a very nice restaurant with ocean views by the mother of the owner.

Hunga Bunga Java

Reviewed By zacsmimi1 - Biddeford, Maine

Small shop in a strip mall, very easy to miss. We went in with friends who loved it and were returning. Coffee drinkers will love all the options. (I still have to be tutored when ordering at Starbucks.) I had a Coconut Smoothie which I found to be amazing in texture and taste. Others ordered expresso shots added to their mixes, etc., all 4 were happy with choices. Interior seating area has a couch and comfy chairs, unusual decor kind of laid back, tropical and reminiscent of hideouts in the 70's... huge bookcases full of paperbacks to borrow. TV on in the corner with sports on - the only thing I found unpleasant. Tiny little mellow place, popular with locals.Nice folks.

Surf City Barbeque

Reviewed By jinx35 - West Columbia, SC

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The owners have spent some money making the interior warm and inviting. Since we were eating late in the day, each couple shared one entree. My wife and I had a small pork plate with fried okra and my in laws had a pork sandwich, slaw on the side and fried okra.

Pork was very tender and had the NC pepper and vinegar sauce. Perfect! Fried okra was hot and crispy. Sweet tea was also very good. Only down side was the hush puppies delivered when we sat down. They would have been a 10 if served hot.

Service was very good and we will return.

A good place for a nice dinner out. The views are spectacular and the food is great! They are both fancier/more expensive and more casual/cheaper options on the menu. The service was great too and everyone was very friendly. Only complaint is the drinks weren't strong at all so I don't think those were worth the price.

Reviewed By Danigirl25 - Big Rapids, Michigan

We stopped in once we were sure they were open with the off season hours. I had a burger and fries with gravy while my husband had a grilled chicken sandwich and a slaw dog. It was a decent burger, tasted like my dad's right off the grill. I've been to a lot of places with the nostalgic 50's and 60's theme. I was expecting a little more.

Seaview Fishing Pier & Restaurant

Reviewed By usbrowns - Middleburg, FL

I don’t fry food at home so on vacay I love to get me some fried seafood. Seaview does it right! I had the scallop dinner with fried okra and onion rings. My wife had the haddock sandwich. Neither meal disappointed.

When you go make sure you walk out on the pier. I have never seen so many people catching fish. This place is old school and worth the visit.

New York Corner Deli

Reviewed By bfarber - Hampstead, North Carolina

My wife and I stopped in recently and had the best steak sandwiches we've had in a while. We came during lunch and did not have a very long wait and were happy with the selections and prices. The food came out fresh, hot, and very very good. I got the regular philly while my wife got the rocky balboa (a philly on garlic toast with mushrooms basically) and both were awesome. We will return.
