Food is great, visit there at least twice a year.. View is amazing overlooking the Inlet.. Nice outside deck and when there is a chill they have the propane burners going.

Eat overlooking the marsh, enjoying the beautiful weather. Lots of choices and combinations of seafood. Beef and chicken selections too. Enjoy!

We make a point to go to Sara J's every time we go to the beach. The food is good, the hushpuppies are just sweet enough, and we can get the Senior Plate which has a smaller (although more than we can eat) portion.
