They have done a great update at this place. It had a great location to begin with, but they have now added bathroom access for just the beach and patio, updated the bathrooms with glass tile and added 2 showers.
They have moved in inside bar to the center of the huge space, added iridescent tile and granite bar top. New bathrooms were added where the stage used to be, making it more comfortable/clean for the restaurant-only crowd.
We sat on the beach and the cocktail waitresses now have the ability to put in your drink orders directly from a hand-held device, drastically reducing the wait-time for drinks. We ordered dinner here, I got the fisherman's platter (HUGE amount of food, I have enough for at least 2 more meals), my friend got the pasta with clams (very yummy!).
As far as the beach, we purchased 2 chairs ($10 each, totally worth it!) and we got a little with the chair order which was great for keeping the sand out of our drinks. The waves were great, I wouldn't recommend the jetty end of the beach for little kids, the surf can be a bit rough. Don't put your blanket too close to the edge of the beach, a few rouge waves soaked quite a few belongings of people around us. Sean's band was great afternoon entertainment- I wish he had been there all day.
This was a great freshening up for this place, I hope to be back soon!
