Default Eaton Beach

I happened to be there yesterday with my find and friends. To 0me, it is a beach bar nothing more, nothing less. The fact that it costs $10.00 for a hamburger and fries to me is expensive.

I ordered a Tanqueray and tonic and the gal asked me if I wanted it on the rocks. I told her that I did want ice. When the bill came, I was I SHOCK. The T a d T was $10.00 and then they charged me another $3.00 for "rocks".

It will be a cold day in hell before I will go back there

Nice big menu with many choices with alot of cajun and low country dishes. I had read that the chef had worked in Ybor city and was Spainish.
My guest is gulten-free and this was easy for them to offer several choices with a smile. Their Bronze chicken with beans and rice was a winner. I had the shrimp poor boy that had a nice remoulade sauce but the fries were under cooked and cold. I told our server and in a few mins. I had a very hot portion in front of me. I think this is a great place and will be back, but I think this place fills up fast so get there early.
Your timing was really good! During the snowbird invasion, the wait was often 2 hours. However, we always enjoyed a couple of drinks and people watching.

Four of us went there on Saturday and we all had a different meal in the upstairs restaurant. None of us were very impressed with our food, it was just OK. We all had meals, no sandwiches. We felt for the food prices that we should have gotten a salad and bread. The prices were OK too if we had received an entire meal. The best thing was that they have Yuengling on draft.

I'm not impressed with the food.

I think you may have made a mistake somewhere . . .

My husband and I were at Eaton's for dinner this evening. We sat in the bar area having a drink, while waiting for about 45 minutes to be called for a table.

I had a well gin and tonic that had no shortage of ice. I've never heard of a gin and tonic that wasn't served with ice, so something is wrong there. That well drink was $5.00. My husband ordered Chivas and was asked how he wanted it and he replied on the rocks. Because that was a call drink, that was $8.00. Again -- no charge for ice.

On neither drink was there a charge for ice. If you were in fact, charged $3.00 for ice, which sounds pretty incredible, the onus was on you to ask for clarification.

I've never heard of anything so ridiculous as being charged for ice at a bar.

Tanqueray is not a well drink. It is premium so you pay more. Not everywhere in the world has TV drink prices.

To all the haters.....please DO NOT go back to Eaton Beach. That will help cut down the wait time for the rest of us....

I have been charged an additional charge ($5) for ordering a premium liquor neat at the Parasol Down lounge at Wynn Las Vegas. When I questioned the charge the manager came over and explained that when ordering a premium neat or on the rocks there is a up charge because the pour is larger than in a mixed drink, 3 ounces as compared to 2 ounces in the mixed drink. That is the only place I ever encountered the up charge and I felt it was explained to my satisfaction.

The point I was trying to make was regarding "ice."

I mentioned the other details to give the complete picture.
I know that Tanqueray, like Chivas, are both "call" drinks.
I mentioned the price we paid for a call drink and a well drink
to show that there was no up charge for ice,
particularly when the server asked my husband
how he wanted his Chivas -- up, on ice, with water, etc.

Anyone who is charged for ice at a bar should question the charge!
