Decided to stop here for dinner instead of eating at the hotel. Not disappointed. Great location on the gulf. It is interesting, you order your food from the window, find a place to sit, and then they bring the food to you. We both had...More

Besides the 45 minute wait while standing in line, this place is superb. The mahi mahi tacos were outstanding. The burger was good too. The fries were just ok. Probably could do without. The scenery is amazing. Great place for drinks and hanging out.

A great place to get together with friends after a long day in the sun or on the oat. Great drinks and OK food. You go for the atmosphere not the food and it is great.

Location is breathtaking, great, cool and eclectic type of set up. Food was really good we had the fish tacos, shrimp tacos, cheese burger and hummus w/pita chips. Pita chips are made fresh😊. Did not have any cocktails so can't speak on that.

Stopped here for lunch, not much of a menu. The French fries are great and we enjoyed the view. I think it is more of an appetizer and drinks place.

I wasn't aware of any tv's but might have been one at the bar. We always sit either at a table or couch on the beach! You must go and check it out! We love it!

Can't really say at night. I've only been during the day when the sun was shining. I would image at night it wouldn't be bad at all.
