We got the table right on the beach and enjoyed a spectacular sunset and good grouper as well. Service was great. Nothing to dislike.

Fun joint, god food, drinks cold and priced right. The location is perfect. Free parking with direct beach and pier access.....it is THE PLACE to eat and drink after a morning of tooth hunting. Staff was very freindly and playful.

Service was great. The location is amazing. The only suggestion is that the prices are too high for the offerings. Come up with new stuff
