The food was excellent and so was the service. Drink specials daily are also great. The shrimp dip was delicious and the sauce with the crab balls was awesome.

Ok for a pier. A few in our group with to fish, and others just to watch. I thought it was strange to have to pay to walk on the pier just to look at the ocean.

We were impressed with the size and length of the pier. Many fishing out there. Many benches to sit and enjoy the ocean views. $2 to go out and enjoy. Other prices for fishing.
