We were fortunate to get seating in the shades seats facing the beach on a very warm April day. So nice to people watch on the pier and watch the dolphins swimming close to the pier. Lunch was very good and large portions.

Single piece of lettuce, small piece of tomato and 2 pieces of bacon. Saddest sandwich I ever had! Good fries. Spoke to manager and they discounted it from the bill. A lot different from our previous visits earlier this year.
