We love ETC

We sit on the beach, we take our dogs, we drink a beer or two. The waiters welcome us warmly and love the greyhounds. We love ECT. It is our party place with friends and neighbors. We love the snacks and lunches.

Liked this place good food a little pricey for casual beach restaurant. Our service was very slow hoping it was just a bad day. However we all enjoyed our lunch bathing suits acceptable beach chairs availlable.

This is a great beach restaurant with a varied menu. But their specialty is their giant coconut shrimp. It is not always on the menu, but ask for it and they will make it. It can take quite awhile to get your food, but when you are sitting on the beach with a cold beer or margarita, you do not... More

What a way to spend the afternoon. Drinks are great along with the food and friendliness of the staff. They actually run sometimes to try and keep up with all the requests from patrons. You can also work off your lunch by stepping out of the restaurant and going for a very pleasant walk on the beach. It doesn't get... More

Great beach club! Beautiful beach, nice cocktails, and snacks. The food was ok, but should be much better for such a nice beach club . Our waiter was excellent! We really enjoyed our day!

This little gem was a short walk down the beach from our resort. Right on the beach with the sun and surf...it screams "I'm on vacation!" I found myself making my way there around 3-4 times a week. It is a perfect place to lounge on the beach away from the resort crowd with a great margarita and a good... More

Good food, better views. Lounge chairs, toes in the sand, buckets of beer and the tequila goes down like water. This may have been the best place we ate/ drank and relaxed at our whole trip. An incredible find.
