“Good food and good music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We stopped in for sandwiches and they were excellent. I got a fish sandwich, I forgot what it was but it wasn't grouper, and it was sooo good. My companions got burgers and they were yummming it up too. Music started around 6pm and it was an acoustic guitarist/singer which added the right touch to the evening. We walked by later in the evening and the crowd seemed to change to drinkers so get there around lunch or supper time and the crowd is mixed and a little more inviting.

“Oysters were excellent and margaritas were cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

What more can I say? We biked on the beach over to this very casual, highly recommended outdoor bar restaurant and were not disappointed. Well priced menu with a surprising variety of choices. We went during happy hour and the "well" margaritas were $4.25. They were delicious!
Raw oysters, Cajon scallops, shrimp Aioli, and oysters rockerfeller were all very good.

Recommend going on the early side to avoid having to wait. We went at 5 PM and were seated right away. Our waiter Josh was very attentive and never made us feel rushed.

“Don't bother!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We read the reviews and thought what the heck, lets do it. We were so disappointed! The restaurant was difficult to locate, and difficult to get to, the map was not right. Once we got there we stood around trying to figure out if we seated ourselves, or were seated. We were seated, then waited for service, and waited. We placed our order, received our food, ate the left. The food was not worth it at all. We over payed for mediocre food! We were entertained by the live music. Really don't waste your time and money here.
