Food was ok but small portions for the huge price. Better views at the burger place downstairs. 65 dollars on average per couple with no appetizers.

The food was not great and it was very expensive for the quality - go to Boschamps or Old Bay Steamer for good food

Enjoyed the view of the beach while eating my shrimp. The staff was very attentive. I had shrimp skewers which were good. No complaints!!

I think they do. They also have early dining when entrees are significantly discounted.
