Enjoy Chess Pavilion and come to this bar. If you have never come across Mediterranean cuisine, you should order a table at Shore Club. That's a nice idea to order tasty tacos, strawberry salads and tuna poke. The truth is that you will really like good strawberry macaroons, macarons and fruit salads.

The wine list is extensive, it can satisfy the needs of all clients. This place has good coffee among its drinks. The staff is said to be creative here. The fine service is a great advantage of this spot. From the visitors' point of view, prices are reasonable. There is a lovely atmosphere and cute decor at this bar. But Shore Club hasn't achieved a high rating on the TripAdvisor site.

Took forever to place our order, our food came long before our drinks, the food was room temperature and seemed like cheap reheated junk (DEFINITELY not the quality I expected based on the price), there was a hair in my food, and the coffee came as I finished my meal and it was full of grounds.
A group of my girl friends and I thought this looked like an amazing place to celebrate our friend during her bachelorette party. The advertisements were awesome- the photos, drinks selection and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. When we arrived to the Shore Club, it was a little early so we grabbed a drink at the bar before checking into our reservation. The general ambience seemed to exceed our expectation. While we all agreed the tiny cups of frozen cocktails were overly expensive, we all agreed to make the entire experience worth our while. It came time to check into our cabana and we were told that it would be a free minutes to get the previous party out. Fast forward thirty minutes and we were still standing around waiting for our cabana. Finally, we had an employee ask if we were waiting and stated he would promptly get a server and cabana for us. When we were finally in the designated area, our server took another 20 minutes to get our drink orders (which needed to equate to a $200 minimum). We ordered four six packs of domestic beers. After talking to two separate servers, they told us that our drink orders were never put in. Our original server ended up bringing 24 canned beers in a plastic container (not the yeti cooler- or any cooler at all) about 45 minutes after we ordered them, stating that the cooler and ice were following directly behind. We asked our server for a food menu, to which she stated would be promptly brought out. After another 20 minutes, two guys brought out a dirty, broken Igloo cooler out without any type of lid. Still not no menu. While all of my friends and I are relatively relaxed individuals, we were all growing very irritated with the service. I ended up going to the bar to ask for a menu- where a handful of servers and bartenders were socializing- and was told I needed to go outside to see the hostess at the front of the establishment for a menu. I eventually was able to secure a menu. We ended up asking to speak to a manager regarding our experience. While the manager was extremely nice and immediately asked what she could do to make up for our grievances, we were all still very peeved by the entire experience. The advertisements promise a fun, stress-free, energetic experience. That was so far from true. We chose the shore club because of the fun, party environment because we were trying to make our friend’s party memorable. Unfortunately we paid an exuberant amount of money to sit on a cheap mattress and extremely overpriced domestic beers in a broken dollar store cooler.
On the beach. Fun atmosphere. Mixed crowd of ages. Great food, drinks & service.
