Delicious food and friendly servers. The options all look wonderful, and I've eaten here several times, so I can verify that everything I've tried was yummy. I've had salmon nicoise, calamari, tuna tartare, and swordfish. All were perfectly seasoned and hearty portions. If I had...More

Last week, we decided on an early dinner at the Wharf . We sat out on the deck with a beautiful view of the beach and water. We started with our latest favorite drink that we call "Lemon-secco" (prosecco and lemoncello) and the loaded nachos...More

This was a cute, public beach but there wasn't much to see on foot. The rest of the beach was privately owned. It was quiet and it had a nice walkway.

The good: 1. Staff changed our table to something more comfortable and with a nice view of the water. Stay away from table 34 if that is the correct number; the table against the wall, with hardly a comfortable spot in "the booth", near the...More
