Nicole (not his real name) and I go back a ways. I once asked him what his real name was and he told me ... but only under under pain of death should I disclose it online. A promise is a promise, so I can't tell you his real name, I'll leave that up to him. However, I can
tell you he's a very affable guy and a lot of fun to talk to!
Most days, Nicole is glued to the TV set inside the restaurant, watching court TV or some sort of true life murder mystery show. Although I had been into the snack bar several times prior, the first time I spent any time with Nicole, he was anxiously awaiting the OJ Simpson trial to begin on TV.
It was November 2, 1994 and he could barely tear himself away from the TV to serve drinks. He hasn't changed a bit. More than 20 years later, it's the same story every time I go there. Different trial or police type story, and he is still fascinated by human depravity and murder. LOL. Ask him about the circumstances surrounding just about any murder that's been televised ... and I bet he can give you accurate details.
The view from the restaurant is terrific and the best part is that it offers both shaded areas and sunny places. I can't sit in the sun for long, so my spot is usually where the folks in the photo below are sitting.
There's another bar down the beach at the Camp Ground ... but in all the years I have been going to Brewer's Bay beach
, I have never once seen it open. Nicole's is pretty much the only game in the bay.
The food is simple yet surprisingly good. The conch fritters I've had have been excellent and the hot dogs and burgers are pretty decent too!
Obviously, since the menu is written in chalk, items available and prices are subject to change without notice ... but this gives you the general idea! :)
