Very good, I was going for the philly... More

Nothing fancy... right on the water under tiki roofs. Food is great; good selection. Service is very good. Casual atmosphere. Beautiful view of the water as it is right on the beach.

Good choice for dinner at Oyster Pond - large menu and drinks right on the beach. Really enjoyed the sound of the waves.

We popped in one night for dinner. We were a mixed group of vegetarians and vegans and they made wonderful pizzas that we all really enjoyed. The staff is very friendly and being right on the beach makes for a beautiful view and experience day or night.
