Service was good, ocean view was beautiful, food a little pricey. The environment was friendly and the restaurant was clean. It was a nice visit.

The server/manager was not friendly at all and he offered us a price much different for the fish than the one advertised on their menu. When confronted he didn't even apologize; just joked about it.

Very personalized service. You get pick the seafood from the huge ice filled cooler and it is prepared in an open kitchen by the beach.

Love this place as its location is the best. I picked a table next to the water during sunset hours and it was fantastic. Worth every penny. The lobster was gigantic and delicious.

When you first walk in I was a little weary. All the waiters were pulling us in different directions, like they were trying to sell us something.
