“Lobster Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

We had lobster dinners here on the plastic picnic tables outside. Its a small casual outdoor bar and eatery with live music.

“Awful food and rude bartender”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

Honestly the worst live music I have ever heard in my life, and too loud to top it off. The bartender was rude and made as if she was doing us a favor to make a drink... Food was poor. we ordered the fish and chips which were basically 2 lbs of deep fried batter

“Yikes!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

We were on a bike ride along Dune Road and decided to stop at the only obvious spot to eat. We were greated right away and told to sit anywhere. Apparently we took the invisible seat! After 15 minutes my wife went and found someone. Our waitress apologized. She didn't realize no one helped us. On to the food.

I had the Wasabi Shrimp Salad which was delicious. My wife had the Chicken Salad which was huge but average. We did have the special house dessert-Rice Chrispie Treat Pie. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

In the end the meal was slightly better than average at a very above average price.
