“Very Good and Oceanfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We dined here for dinner while on vacation. We thought it would be packed but due to the storm an hour before we walked in and were seated promptly.

The patio has a great breeze and you can see the ocean from your seat due to the high top tables. The portions are good. I had the Muchachos nachos are enough for 2-3 I could not finish them and my husband ate his meal and nibbled on mine too. He had the flounder basket and thought it was deliscious.

Service was quick with the food but average service. Drink refills were received when we received our bill.

“Great happy hour, outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I was here for a happy hour get-together a group had organized. We sat outside and it was the nicest place to sit, under an umbrella, enjoying the breeze. The scenery of the ocean was lovely. We were severed appetizers of chicken tenders, wings, shrimp, fries, and hushpuppies - all of which were excellent. I really enjoyed the seasoned fries. If your looking for a nice place to eat and drink, taking in the view, this place is it.

“Order the Nacho's.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Ate lunch here 2 times. Food was always very good and hot. It was memorial weekend so things were a little busy. Do not miss the Nacho's.

“Amazing food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We were looking for seafood and someone told us to go here. I ordered fried shrimp with hush puppies (have never had before) and the potatoes. Was amazing! My friend ordered the mahi mahi that was on special, was very good as well!

“Pretty good food, reasonably priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Liked the cat in residence. Ate outside and late. If you're not fond of "high" chairs, eat inside. Music performances not great, just so, so. Food pretty good, mostly fried bar food. Location good and walking distance to hotel.
