Iggie's Beach Bar & Grill is a twenty year old bar and restaurant built on the sand, literally a few feet away from the ocean. This year was their 20 year anniversary, and to celebrate Iggie's made some renovations - they've built a bamboo bar, a palm thatch roof, and installed some big screen TVs. Come right in off the water to cool down with a tropical cocktail or enjoy lunch or dinner after hanging out in the sun. Iggie's has apps like spinach-crab-artichoke dip, Portabello mushroom fries, and entrees like salads, sandwiches, veggie burgers, crab cakes, fish and chips, surf and turf, or crab legs. Tuesday and Saturday are all you can eat King crag leg nights! Sunday is an all you can eat ribs and chicken BBQ party on the beach that has become a weekend tradition for the locals.
