Good food at the beach

We ate in the large covered deck. Very noisy from piped in music and conversations, but very good food and attentive, friendly wait staff. Just off the beach, it's so very informal. Great for families with youngkids. Terrific cheese steaks and shrimp wraps.

The pizza is very good. The cheeses fries we love. Chicken fingers for the kids are always a winner. Quick service and everything on the menu is good.

This place is so so overpriced; it's a wonder anyone goes there. The Tiki Bar food is awful, microwaved junk.

Slow service, dull menu, food average, overpriced. Went for a lunch from the beach with 10 people (mostly kids). The service was haphazard. There were no positive comments on the food,

We went to see Lucy (right next door)...then ventured over for a casual supper upstairs. Had burgers, fries and chicken wings and all were very good with good portions.

Ordered the Flounder Franchaise and it was the best fish dinner Ive had in a long time. Apps were also very good! Better than Steve and Cookies.

This review is from a lunch and not the fine dining section of the restaurant which has received many very positive reviews. Based on those it seemed like a safe bet for lunch on a summer weekday. I found most of the prices unusually high and selected one of the lower priced items a grilled chicken sandwich. It wasn't a... More

[Just to be clear I am reviewing the indoor upstairs restaurant at Ventura's Greenhouse]. When asked, most will point to Tomato's or Steve & Cookies when asked for the best dinner in Margate. Not to take away from either of the above as both are delicious, however the upstairs restaurant at the Greenhouse offers some of the best food on... More
