We discovered the flying boat after our visit last year and are there again twice this year. Great fresh food and right next door to the Fishing club that have great happy hours and sports games on the big screen.

Grab a happy hour beer from the Fishing Club, check out the sunset over the ocean and order the most delicious fish and chips which will be delivered to your picnic table, cheap and tasty on the beach.

We stopped here often. The Fishing Club behind the Flying... More

Lovely fish and chips in a relaxed friendly setting. Price seemed fair enough and was very nicely cooked.
