On Sat and Wed nights they have an outdoor grill for dinner. We had shrimp, fish, chicken, ceviche. We sat outside right on the ocean. It was very reasonably priced and delicious!

It's a small and friendly place right on the beach that offers secure parking and an awesome menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner.. Two nights a week the do BBQ night and the filet mignon is under $20 and is fantastic. A great place to enjoy the sunset as well as a great meal.
