Great place, great food, great atmosphere

Seated ourselves for a party of 10. Deb was our server. What a wonderful atmosphere and experience! Our menu choices were all different, from apps to dessert. No one was disappointed. The all you can eat crab legs were to die for, so fresh and flavorful! Deb is probably one of the best... read more

Great spot right on the beach with outdoor seating, live music & great Happy Hour specials. Even though they were understaffed we received great service, especially from Tamara, Jenna & Deb! Breakfast was excellent, recommend blackened Mahi Mahi wrap for lunch! Beautiful sunsets on the beach!

Walked to this restaurant on a "whim" after a late arrival in another hotel. They have beach seating and a bar. Food was good and the chef was out of one of the specials on the board but experimented with my wife's entree and it was fantastic. The waitress was pleasant and saw to every need which made the evening... More

Excellent food for breakfast and lunch without leaving the beach. Service was good and waitstaff very friendly. The menu was very limited but the food was very satisfying. Eggs and coffee in the morning and sandwich and beer in the afternoon. What more could you need?

Breakfast outside by the beach at a fair value. You can get in and out for under $5 per head. Inside and outside dining available

Food was okay, nothing special. Took too long to arrive and it wasn't even busy per the hostess. Chose outside dining because the weather was great. If only the service and food obliged. Not only was the bill incorrect, it took 15 minutes to correct it. Great to see dolphins, but not enough to ever go back or recommend.

Great place for breakfast and lunch. Staying at the Sea Ranch motel for 3 nights and not wanting to spend our time trying to find a place for breakfast and lunch, this was so easy. Food good and atmosphere great! Bistro basically attached to the motel. Walk right up from the beach, enjoy lunch and go back to the beach.... More

We had one lunch and 2 breakfast meals here. The lunch I had a fish sandwhich. The fish was FRESH and the meal was delicious. My wife had the fish tacos, which were also great. The breakfast meals are really great and filling. I am very impressed with food quality. We sat outside each time. Limited space, but we always... More
