A Surf-Style Restaurant in Land-Locked Vermont

Enjoy the care-free Hawaiian-style ambiance of our surf-style restaurant conveniently located on Shelburne Road in Burlington in a renovated 1950s Phillips 66 gas station. Take advantage of our ample free parking, free WiFi, and convenient drive-through pick up for orders placed online in advance.

Owner, Russ Scully, isn't the greatest surfer in the world (by a long shot), but he's got the surfing bug and he's got it bad. In fact, Russ also has the windsurfing bug, the kiteboarding bug, the stand up paddle bug, and so on and so on.

Russ was given the opportunity in late 2008 to purchase and transform the old Kaigle's 1950's Phillips 66 Bat Wing gas station into a community-building restaurant and hang-out. The building received historic recognition from the city of Burlington preserving its architectural design for years to come. From the outside, there are a few slight changes to the building - garage doors, glass blocks, new window glazing, etc. But where the significant transformation occurred was on the inside. Once you walk in, you're immediately transported to an island-style place with consistently great music, great food and great friends.

We receive an overwhelming number of compliments about our decor and the "care-free" feeling of our seating area. We have a 150 gallon salt water tank for kids and fish lovers to gaze into. We have two custom crafted standing "palm tree tables" that sit a party of six comfortably and a long bench style seat padded with fabric from old windsurfing sails.

We're open every day from 7AM-3PM serving breakfast and lunch all day long. Dinner service runs Wednesday through Sunday from 3PM-9PM with a special menu designed specifically for our evening hours. We're also available for private parties and get togethers. If you're interested in booking a private party, please let us know. We'd be happy to put together a catering and rental quote for your event.
