We'd been wanting to get in here for the past few trips, but it was always too crowded- which we assumed meant it was good. Finally made it for one dinner, and it was definitely worth it!

Prices were decent for... More

We ate here three times during our week long vacation, twice for dinner and once for breakfast. We haven't had one thing that we didn't like. The servers are friendly and even when crowded, we never had to wait for a table as they have two levels. The breakfast biscuits are huge and so good. I had the chop chop... More

Food was less than stellar, but spot is nice on the boardwalk. Avoid Ruben and Frenxh Dip Sando. Good for kids, meal comes in sand bucket with shovel.

Very friendly waitress and very good food made for a combination of an enjoyable meal. My son loved his kids meal which was also served with a free beach pail and shovel! Fun ambiance too!
