Ok food, but overpriced

The food was ok, poor atmosphere. Motel-restaurant. We could have eaten at a better quality restaurants for the prices they were charging.

Driving by, it looks like it may be nice with a little patio that has a view. That's where it ends. I ordered an Ice Tea, and for the first time in my life a restaurant served me the instant mix stir-in powder type of ice tea! This was not a good sign. The burger- for $12 the only place... More

We were staying in a hotel next door and stopped in for something to eat. One look at prices on menu I thought I was in a upscale resturant and not a crummy neighborhood sports bar.

Good food, free wifi and ice cold beer... ocean view and great weather. Had the ABC burger and my sweetie had fish and chips. Food was hot and yummy, our Stella Artois was frosty and refreshing.

Not a large selection of places to stay or eat, so it was a welcome experience to have a nice meal at a decent price. Wait staff were pleasant. Ate breakfast in the morning before continuing our Hwy 1 road trip south. Both waiter and gentleman running the bodega style store adjacent to property were friendly enough when I asked... More
