So I keep giving this place a try and keep getting disappointed. The good... great atmosphere and the staff has always been helpful and friendly. But the bottom line is the food isn't very good--and I've been at least 5 or 6 times now--and the more serious offense is the weak drinks! maybe it's a... read more

Drinks were perfect.... More

A few years ago as my family and I were walking down the boardwalk we decided to stop into this restaurant to get a bite to eat. We sat on the second floor deck, and had the best view of the ocean while we ate our meal. The service is outstanding and the food is so good. I always get... More

As the only restaurant/Bar that I found on the Boardwalk I expected more. The Bar area was nice but kind of tight on the second floor. It over looked the beach area and the GO-Karts which were kind of loud. The bathrooms were downstairs and kind of our of the restaurant. We only got appetizers which were better then average....

Although I was there last year and we were very impressed I wasn't as delighted with the place this time. The waitstaff was very friendly and served food promptly and came back repeatedly to ask if we needed anything. I just was not real impressed with the food. It was good but not like I remembered from the year before.... More

This place is much better than a boardwalk restaurant has a right to be. The fish tacos with blackened tuna were really great. We also enjoyed the pineapple cole slaw. Our waiter (I don't remember his name, unfortunately - obviously the drinks were good too) was very good in helping us navigate the menu.
