I can't even express how gorgeous the sunset was here. The meal, however was just average. We had the surf and turf for two. The lobster and shrimp were cooked perfectly, but lacked any sort of seasoning and flavor. The turf was billed as filet,...More

We stopped here for snacks and beverages and were very happy with the service and quality of the food. The view is really something and so unassuming from the highway. Our server was excellent, not pushy, positive, nice smile and accommodating. Nice place.
