We made a quick stop here for lunch. We only wanted a light meal and so went with the House Salad and Pretzel Burger. As House Salads go this one was a pleasant surprise as there was a lot of different veggies and fruit/nuts included. Then the Pretzel Burger was lean beef and came with a bbq sauce - it... More

The food is good, not spectacular but good. The best thing about is the ambiance, there is no better location. Great place to go as a family!

We loved this place on our recent trip! I wish we had discovered it sooner. The food was wonderful. They had some healthy salad options and some good looking fish tacos too. We sometimes have a hard time finding places that are good for groups or with our five kids. This was a great location! Big outdoor eating area with... More

Sitting between the mountains and ocean outside under the sun. Gentle sea breeze, good beach food and a family friendly atmosphere. Beer on tap and wine. Not fancy, but definitely glad we stopped in.

We were in the area for one day and stopped here for lunch. Great outdoor setting. Food was great, especially fish taco. Price is very reasonable even though this is a beach-front property with a great view. You get the service with smile from very enthusiastic and helpful clerks and waiters. More so, if you love trains, you may see... More

We discovered this little gem that's only 20 miles from our home only a few months ago, but have returned several times because it's that good. What makes this place unique? Its location at the beach, but not on it. The huge sandpile that keeps the kids entertained so you can eat in peace. The tropical paradise that is the... More

Wonderful atmosphere. Enjoy the beautiful weather on your lunch break. Right on the beach with lots of outdoor seating. I had the fish tacos. They were good but nothing too special.

Good mix of standard causal eats, nachos, great burgers, shakes and a decent beer selection. Worth going to padaro beach for the afternoon and having early dinner here, you can literally walk here straight from the beach. The garden area is fab for families with a large sandpit for the toddlers.
