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. Sorry you had to spend your $12 somewhere else. Let's hope if anyone is having medical issues, people will prioritize on saving a life... More

we had an awesome walk out to nearly the end of the tail, the ocean colors were amazing --- a few packed supplies and (sadly) a selfie.

One visit of this place is all you need if you dont mind walking. Split chicken fingers with my husband at the cafe on the way in. They were decent. We had to wade through the water to get to the shells. That was the fun part, i screamed the whole way . We went at lunch so we probably... More

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!
