I have eaten here twice. Little bar atmosphere with a fireplace on one side and a gorgeous view of the Bay. Outstanding Fish and Chips (their specialty). Always stop here when driving up the coast.

We had a really wonderful meal here last weekend. The service was so friendly and the food was great. The fish tacos were especially tasty, as were the oysters. Would highly recommend for a romantic dinner.

Scenic spot for a post golf beverage. Overlooking ocean and 18th. Nice bar, had really good flatbread; other menu items looked intriguing. Friendly servers, tv's to catch up on the pros, fireplace. Always end up thinking Why don't we come here more often??
