“Great meeting spot before dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Right on the beach. We ate here once and thought the food was very good, but the portions small for the price. We spent more time at the adjacent outdoor bar. Great place to catch some sun/shade and have a folly Mai tai before dinner.

“Night Mgr. has no management skills what so ever!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The bartender yelled at me for telling my friend, he had the next round, the mrg was a doof and did nothing about it. The dinners were very ok,, the breakfast was awful, I asked for scrambled cheese eggs and got scrambled eggs with cold shredded cheese on top, the steak was to be med- med rare but came to me very rare. I won't go back EVER!

Good food, service and location. We had a lovely dinner, both having seafood dishes. My "Special of the Day" was excellent and the prices are good value.
