“don't go here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

This was awful - chicken wings were not cooked, and the chef even managed to ruin a cobb salad! Inedible and sent back - at least we weren't charged.

You can ask for the coconut shrimp as a dinner instead of a salad. OMG, the best coconut shrimp EVER!

“Worst meal in the best location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

I think the only reason this place is still in business is because the patio has an amazing view of the beach otherwise the food we had was tasteless.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We come here every year for Labor Day and have been faithfully coming since Labor Day 2005! They always have live reggae music every Labor Day and $2 Red Stripes are always flowing! The staff is awesome and the vibe is amazing!
