My friends and I had a terrible experience at this restaurant. 1) We tried to explain to the waitress that we wanted to split an appetizer between the three of us and she basically said "Well why would you do that when one of you could just pay for it and the rest could pay you back later?". I don't... More

Yes, no debit machine. Debit machines have a cost, but it's not that much. The cheapness is a turn off. Also I got the "lightly" battered fish & chips. There was way more batter then fish. Not lightly battered at all.

We stopped by as a larger group halfway though our day at the beach. Our waitstaff wasn't unfriendly, but she certainly wasn't friendly either. The place seemed to have some character, but it was squashed out by the high price of low quality food. Nobody in our group of 8 was happy with their meal, the soft drinks came flat,... More

Stopped for breakfast 2 years ago. The food was okay but nothing special. The service was also average, but to be fair that was 2 years ago. We drove by several times this trip & it appears they have possibly expanded. We will let you know next year when we go back. We didn't have time to check it out... More

Staff was overwhelmed by lunchtime "rush" which was a handful of tables out front - would hate to see how they deal with a full house. This meant rude service staff snapping at us about being too busy to answer questions about parking outside, and rolled their eyes when we asked to pay with debit. Hotdog lunch was terrible. Might...

Nice location near the beach. Take a break from the sun and come in for some good food and a cold refreshment. Can take a short walk from the beach.

Perfectly located a few steps from the beach, nice little greasy spoon kind of place. French fries were thick, juicy, hot, and ready quite quickly. We ordered a medium (6$) to share and couldn't finish. Great place to have a cold beer after laying on the beach all afternoon. Our waitress was absolutely charming and adorable. She had a great...

Love the small town feel to it and friendly staff. Fair prices and great to have a cold beer on a hot day by the lake.
