Visit at happy hour for some good menu choices. Food was good and had a seat next to the window which was fun to people watch. Beach is right across the street.

Great physical layout - excellent bar, large dining area, good bartender - unfortunately, in the off season they only have three beers on tap. There are much better options available nearby.

We stopped in here after a 6.5 hour drive looking for dinner and they were actually open. The server was friendly and knowledgeable about the town. The bang bang shrimp was great and so was the crab/shrimp salad. We ended up drinking here for awhile...More
