Lots of choices and good food. Our waiter Stephen was a hoot and really paid attention to the kids in our party. We walked out side and on to the beach. They had hula hoops and connect 4. A fun place for families

We are lunch and had a great view of the ocean. I had the Shrimp Basket and it was very good. It was $100 for a family of four to eat lunch, which was a little pricey for my budget.
