We had fun meeting other people at the larger community tables. We learned a lot about the area that way. Great view, great music, great drinks and food.

Server was one of the best we've ever had. Think his name was John. The views were fantastic, and the food was delicious. However, naturally, it was VERY pricey and the seating options are limited. We would definitely come back, but just can't rate "excellent" with those prices and having to share tables with strangers due to lack of seats.

A great place to have a drink and view the Pacific. We were staying in the hotel and decided to stop in for a drink in the afternoon... decided to stay for sunset.

Tables can fill up quickly and the eating area is small. Heat lamps are turned on and blankets distributed so... More

the views are amazing here. and even on a chilly night they provide nice clean blankets and heaters so you can still enjoy it all. they also have live music some nights which makes it a great place to hang out as well.
