Best meal we had during our week at the beach. Food was delicious and pretty reasonably priced, and the service was great too. The salad bar was well stocked and fresh.

What great appetizers and drinks are served while waiting on a table!! The bar staff are gregarious, and the friend mozzarella chese is to die for! It is not those sticks, but fresh cheese, cut, dipped, and fried!!
