Located on the end of the Imperial Beach Pier. Great sunset views. The food is good, but the view is better. The fish and chips were good. Currently no alcohol license.

my friend and I were relaxing on the beach and decided to see the view from the end of the pier and enjoy lunch too. We both had the mahi mahi tacos. Delicious!

We had lunch here. Mostly deep fried items. Tacos had the best taste of what we ordered. Reasonably priced. Great view. Friendly service.

All fried, some overdone. Not sure how the ratings are so high for this place. Would not return.. Not at all impressed.

I believe the dining experience here is amplified by the experience of dining out over the ocean with a fresh breeze. It's a laid back jointwith good quick bite seafood fare. Get a fish sandwich and gave a beer on a warm, sunny day.
