Keep your toes in the sand

Walk through the ropes, pick an umbrella table, order and continue enjoying the beach!! The server was great but she was working solo. Understandably, service was slow, but her menu recommendations were spot on!!

Husband had alfredo and there was NO cheese. It tasted like a bland white sauce. I had baked stuffed shrimp,,, 6 small shrimp with crab meat on the top. Small and tasteless. There were 6 of us for dinner. Salad bar was the only thing good. Bar tender needs a lesson on making drinks. Our waitress was great. We would... More

The Salad bar was included in our meal and was a whole meal in itself....lovely fresh salad with plenty of choice. Our... More

Very nice place to eat.. Inside and outside dining. Various food options to choose from and a super large salad bar.. Many choices and very good prices also. Nice atmosphere if you can get a window table and you view the sunset...

On my first trip here the food was good, view is fantastic, but after trying to bring my parents here for breakfast, I will never go again. We went Sunday for brunch and not only were we not greeted by either one of the hosts but neither one of the bartenders said anything for a good five minutes. Finally Ashley... More

Great ocean view, but needs a remodel to include windows that open in the dining room, more beachy decor, updated bar and chairs etc! Food was great! Monkeybread was delicious dessert! Perfect beach location but needs some $$ spent on updating the whole place!

We have visited this restaurant a number of times and still find it among the best beach side restaurants in the area. Visiting family have loved it as well. We will continue to return, often. So far no disappointments. Great spot!
