We stopped here after kayaking for lunch. The server recommended the chicken salad wrap. It was a large portion served with fresh cooked potato chips. This place serves beer and wine. They also offered burgers, veggie wraps, etc. nice casual counter service.

Good place to stop for an Ice Cream on the way back from the beach but it shuts down at 4pm!! Think more could be done with this place and longer hours would be a good starting point

Hi Chris , you posted a 1 star review for this food place ? You see the owner 'Martina' left the building for 5 mins because someone was having a heart attack out on the sand.

We had a late lunch and went there because we had read such good reviews. The people working there were friendly. The hamburgers, however, were not as good as fast food, and the waffle fries seemed to have been refried or warmed over. We had 2 hamburgers and 2 teas and the tab was about $26. Maybe the food is...

I was very impressed by the fresh & healthy options at this beachside cafe. The food was delicious and portions were generous. The Bodington's, and wines weren't so bad either ;) YUM!

My 20 something daughters stopped by after a day on the beach. One got chicken fingers which were very good and the other got grouper fingers. Both of them enjoyed their food. They give you a TON of waffle fries with them as well.

Ate here every day whilst on holiday from UK. Tony and his family and Bob made the most fantastic burgers with amazing waffle fries. Great value. Would also recommend the veggie wrap. Will so miss our lunchtimes!
