Fish tacos are out of this world good! We also had the fish and chips and it was a giant plate of fresh fish. The place was very very busy, which we knew was a good sign, and the staff was very friendly. Definitely recommend.

Seafood tacos were good. Expect just a step above bar food quality, but friendly service and great ocean views make it worth a stop.

The oysters were some of the best I've ever had! Delicious doesn't even touch it! They have a very unique cocktail sauce that was amazing as well. Everyday from 3-6pm the oysters are only $12 per dozen!
