“Great view and atmosphere. Awesome staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We were here for two nights and had three meals while we stayed. We had one lunch and two dinners. The food was typical pool patio food. The Mac and cheese was very good. The chicken sandwich was also very good. Burgers and chicken fingers were average.
The best part of the restaurant was the staff. Very fun and extremely courteous.
Our server John handled an inebriated customer who was cursing around my family. He handled very professionally. We didn't ask him to do so. I thanked him afterwards and he said he'd do the same of his family. Great work.

“Ocean side view with a great breeze.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Great selection for a bar and grill. Oysters were fresh and sizable. Fish tacos were tasty. Signature Bloody Mary was like an appetizer in a glass. A little over prices but this is a tourist town, right?

“Great service, tasty food, great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Ate here several times. Conch fritters, sweet potato fries , salads some of the excellent good served. Servers were great, whether coming to u at the lounges or serving u at the tables. With the ocean viewable every where what's not to like ? Prices what u would expect, not cheap but not outrageous .
