Terrific spot for after the beach! Service was excellent; our server (I forget her name) was very accommodating and friendly. We didn't have a long wait for a table, and while we did wait, we went across the street to take pictures on the beach....More

This is a beach side restaurant that opened just a few years ago and it's very popular with the lunch crowd. I have not had a bad meal here yet. Fish and chips, burgers and salads are prepared and served up quickly and always delicious....More

family friendly with a to die for lobster bisque. Smell the sea listen to the waves in a lively bar /restaurant atmosphere. Walk back to town along the beach after you eat.

We had such a great lunch on Saturday--which turned into drinks, oysters, and many laughs over the afternoon! Our server, Diandra, was awesome--great service and so nice. We've been there several times over the years and always enjoy the food, beach view, and fun atmosphere.

Excellent location and we love being able to look right at the dunes and the beach from the outdoor tables. Really good service and fresh and labor full food. Excellent lobster rolls and fish-and-chips. Good beer. Friendly, fun place, very beachy.
