I have only had lunch here - several times. I usually have the clam chowder bread bowl - it is excellent and reasonably priced. Their salads are also very good. They have a full bar and outdoor seating overlooking Capitola Beach.

We visited first to have a Bloody Mary (fabulous and with a nice bartender). We returned for dancing with a live band. It was wonderful. The live band was good and the dance floor was crowded enough to be interesting but not confining. Aces 10 on dancing to a live band after 7 p..

A perfect place to stop for lunch on a sunny day! We sat in the back patio, with a view to the water. It was perfect! Food and service were also great...My husband had a crab Benedict dish that was delicious. We definetely recommend this charming place.
