Stopped by here for some appetizers while waiting for our room to be ready at our resort. Had the shrimp and chips and garlic cheese bread. Pretty standard. The service was good though. Sit outside if you can. We saw whales!

Stopped for a quick lunch. The food was fine, filling and reasonably priced. Service was also fine. What's it with Yanks always cooking their bacon to a burnt crisp? I had the BLT and asked for my bacon to be lightly cooked, but no! It...More
