Great Atmosphere

You can't beat the Beautiful beachfront setting. We go for cocktails & the Music. I can't rave about the food, since I find it OK at best. The service is very good & friendly.

They were not cut loose from the bottom shell. Had she'll on about a third of the Oysters. I expect more for $16.00.... More

We were a large group celebrating St. Patrick's Day. We had such a great time, the staff were SOOOO attentive. The band was appropriate for the crowd but beware. You have to get there early and they wind down early, early being by 11 pm. I had a caesar salad and a bowl of clam chowder, all good. The view... More

Dined there with a bunch of family members. I had a fish melt sandwich that was outstanding. We had ten people in our party and every one of us loved our meal! We sat on the deck - beautiful ocean view with a really good country band playing. Can't wait to go back!!

Recently enjoyed a great seafood meal at this nice restaurant. We were staying with relatives who live in Ponce Inlet and they suggested eating at this place as they frequently go there themselves to enjoy the atmosphere & good food. Had to wait a bit for a table (even though it was a Thursday night) but we enjoyed walking on... More

Been going here for 30 years. We love it. Last week, I had the shrimp tacos - YUM. YUM. YUM. The music is not always my cup of tea but a table or chair on the back deck makes up for it for me.

We came here with friends who live in the area. I can see why this is a favorite place for them to go for lunch or dinner. There are plenty of tables outdoors, with the ocean right in front of you. If weather is not great, there is indoor seating" We all had seafood dishes. The shrimp tacos are a... More
