“Food is great, but service is very slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I have been 5 times now and the food is always good. The reason I only give it 3 stars it the service is soooo slow. You have better luck sitting inside, but I always come for the view outside which there is no other place with that great of a view. I think the stairs must be hard on the servers outside (it is 3 flights) and last time my food was luke warm. It also takes forever for the bartender and servers to get a first/second drink order. I think if they could fix there service they would be 5 stars. I will def. go there again and just deal with the slow service and hope they can improve this and not get worse.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Have been here before but not in a long while. Things have changed. Previously their artisan sandwiches were fantastic and piled high with ingredients. Not so this time, while good, they were not exceptional and no where near what they used to be. Used to love their "greek" potato salad, but now something was missing, it just wasn't as good this time. The meal, unfortunately, was disappointing.

“Went there for the view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Yes, you have to climb to the third story to reach the deck and the view of the ocean was very good. That's where the positives ended for us. There are picnic tables on the deck and barstools at the bar. There was some kind of birthday party going on with little kids running around screaming. Not sure which patrons were the parents since it continued the whole time were we there. The bartender was totally inattentive. You think he would be pushing the drinks since there were only 4 of us at the bar. Menu is Greek. We just had a drink and left.

“Not bad but not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

I expected a rooftop bar/grill overlooking the ocean to have more in the line of seafood. Not so here as the menu is mostly Greek. My husband and I ended up ordering a Captain's platter to split. It was a good choice with shrimp, scallops, fish filets and clam strips. Service was good and friendly. Not sure I will be back as I would rather go to a 'classic' seafood restaurant while at the beach.

“Spectacular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Although there is a enclosed restaurant on the ground floor, it's the rooftop that makes this one of our favorites. There are a few stairs to climb, but it is well worth it. (Especially since they have now built bathrooms on the rooftop). The gyros and Greek salad are very good. Happy hour drink prices make this an awesome place to enjoy the sunset and the beach views at the same time. I don't recommend if wind speeds are more than 20 miles per hour. Right across the street is a new county splash park which children in our party also enjoyed.
