The food may be ok, but we were a party of six. The hostess took parties of 3 and 4 before us rather than holding back and putting two tables together to accommodate us. If you are a vegetarian don’t waste your time or money...More

Very busy seafood restaurant located on the beach. Seating is available inside as well. The food is delicious, reasonably priced and the staff is friendly. A great place to sit and watch the beach action.

We had lunch at this beach-side restaurant twice. Both times the food was excellent. Service was prompt and attentive. It was great having lunch while watching and listening to the surf!

I remember that our drinks were 2 for the price of one - BOGO. My hubby & I each had 2 huge daiquiris as a result. 👍 They were great!
