My wife and I have been here several times simply for a snack and a "Bulldog" Margarita. Each time we tried a snack food and a dessert. The food was ok but not terrible. The drinks are good and the prices are very reasonable for being on the boardwalk. The kids liked their meals so I guess that is a... More

We really wanted this place to be good because it was in our hotel and it was convenient. It happened to be the place that made sense for our party of nine to meet and eat. Bad choice. I rarely have experiences where one bad thing after another happens, but it did here. The table was sticky and wobbly, my... More

We stayed at the Howard Johnson which is attached to this restaurant so we ate here for breakfast and dinner. They offer a breakfast buffet as well as menu service. We ordered from the breakfast menu and it was delicious. We had dinner on the patio and the food was even better than breakfast. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Looked like a cozy place for breakfast but was very disappointed. Atmosphere was not very clean, and very humid inside. Didn't appear that AC was working very well. Went for breakfast and was very disappointed by cold eggs and potatoes. Service was fine and our waitress was very sweet and nice but communication was difficult with a language barrier from...

Ate here twice. First night, we had pizza inside by the brick oven. Great pizza, great drinks, beautiful location. Second night, we ate outside and had appetizers. All the food was good and the waitresses were very nice. Would highly recommend.

Great food right on the boardwalk. The wings were very very tasty and the pizza was brick oven made. We had dinner for 7 people and every person loved their meal. Be sure to check out the gorgeous hostess, she lights up the entire boardwalk.

The pizza and children's entrees were very good. service was great and we had a nice time. Drinks were yummy. My only issue was with the alfredo. it was neither cheesy or creamy.

We went there 2 adults 4 kids, the waitress was friendly when she finally came to our table after 15 minutes of waiting. She seemed confused when we ordered, and completely forgot to bring my food. I had to remind her, my food came the time the rest of my family finished eating. For $90 I expected better service. Only... More

We got caught in the rain walking the boardwalk and ducked in to this restaurant for an early lunch. The waitress was very friendly but the service as extremely slow in spite of the fact that there were only a handful customers. The food was mostly good but overpriced.
