Beach view and the music are this place's best bets. Food is a little on the buttery side for me. Service is usually average at best. If your in a hurry, just have a drink or two and chill out to the music and the surf.

This was probably my 3rd or 4th visit, and I have not been disappointed yet! Drinks before dinner were, if I remember, called "Train Wreck" - a fruity orange-mango vodka-based drink, I believe. It was amazing. The drinks here are a tad pricey in my opinion, or I would have had more than one. You do get to keep the... More

Only had time for a quick lunch by the water. Great atmosphere and view of the water. So much to see at the restaurant, wish I had more time. Ordered the mahi-mahi tacos and my wife had the prime rib. They were both very good, we were so stuffed. Hadn't intended to eat so much, but it was delicious and... More

This is a great place to go for a drink and some music. Outside seating is great. Staff is pretty good. The food was average. Sea food looked good. (Didn't have any). It is fun and a nice place to interact with others, kid friendly, and newly decorated since the fire. Gift shop too!

very small nice restaurant with a nice patio in the rear overlooking the beach. Friendly staff, good food and very cold drinks. There are steps off the patio that lead down to the beach with a water faucet to get the sand off of your feet when you return to the patio. You can people watch while you eat on... More

We had an amazing meal. The food was excellent, we highly recommend the shrimp and grits!!! However the service is poor at best. I can't imagine a serving staff less understanding of how to wait tables. Excuses and smart remarks appear to be the norm. In this industry when a mistake is made the best response is not "why didn't... More

Beautiful views of the ocean but we were disappointed with our food. Seven people in our party and only one loved her food which was fried shrimps. I ordered one of their new seafood pasta which was overcooked and tasted like can red sauce and at $25 well not funny. My husband fish sandwich was soggy. My husband said the... More
