I enjoyed the restaurant's atmosphere by the water. The server's we had worked really hard and did a good job. My family had about 70 people and we had no complaints. I would recommend this place for a family reunion anyday!

I loved this place. It's right on the boardwalk, it has a nice view. Great food! I recommend visiting during lunch to catch their specials as it can be a little pricey otherwise. I had their shrimp bowl, it was amazing. Great service.

I would not think so but you might want to call and be sure. It's not a fast food restaurant.
