Good food, good view, good people... what more could you want? We were one week after the bike weekend and on week before Spring Break, nice quiet beach break for us while the locals caught their breath. Couldn't have been better.

The very definition of casual dining. Just a little hole in the wall looking place. We went off-season midweek so I don't think they were expecting a lunch crowd but they got one. Our group had 11, another group that seated just before us had...More

The Fish House Restarant is not at all fancy; it's small and informal. The locally caught fish is fresh that day, and the fried flounder sandwich was the best fish sandwich I've ever had. The grilled flounder was equally good. The hush puppies rate up...More
