Our family of four all enjoyed this family friendly restaurant. It's location is nice because you can check out the shops while you wait for your table. The Buck takes your cell number and will call when your table is available. My husband liked his burger, I had a veggie burger with a gluten free bun (yeah!), the kids had... More

Good hamburger cooked just right, but super greasy, low-quality bun. The chips it was served with were overdone and tasted like salty cardboard.

Great views from the deck and great taps if you like the beer. Food is average, nothing to write home about.

I have eaten here twice this summer. Both times the food and beer was very good. The first time had a bleu cheese burger and the second time I had a black bean burger. They let you customize the cheese and all of the finishes you put on your burger. They also have a good assortment of draft beers to... More

We sat on the second floor rooftop, that was nice. Have sandwiches and good beer. Close to the beach and downtown area and pretty good prices.

Food was really good...was not great service. We waited 15 minutes before we were even greeted:( all of the surrounding tables seemed to be in the same situation also...I would suggest more staff! My son loved his chicken bites!
