Beautiful views of the ocean! Even saw dolphins out the windows. Their food is on point! Loved their Hawaiian Burgers! Their drinks were good & quite potent 😂 Put this place down as a must try for your food 😊

The grouper lunch special either blackened or grilled was excellent. The onion rings were great. Wish their was a choice of sides other than steamed vegetables and rice, but fish was delicious. Atmosphere/view very nice.

Took the shuttle and were dropped off at the entrance which means we had to walk a bit to get to the restaurant - we just had drinks - the place is dark inside but the view was great.
