Great views on/off the pier here! But, I thought the food was ok but expensive. Popular tourist spot. If you want more of a local flavor, much better elsewhere. But good place to people watch and watch sunset off the pier.

Prepare ahead, we had a 45 minute wait, which we planned on. It is right on the beach/pier, so expected to be busy, and we wanted to eat outside, with everyone else. That said we actually did get our table in less time than predicted....More

Yes we do and as long as you notify the server we can accommodate your dietary and allergy needs. Believe it or not one of our owners is allergic to fish and shellfish. He eats here almost every day.
