Where to start. Opens at 8 am. Arrive at 8:15am. Order placed. Told of a serious gluten allergy. Didn't seem to care. Took 50 minutes to get BLT and an omelette. Oh ya, no cheese on omelette. So basically it was scrablled egg sandwich. Pathetic.

This is a typical beach restaurant. Great view for eating. Hamburger and hot dog place. Good selection of ice cream. They have one of the best hot dogs around and you should try it for a lunch.
