Our group of two couples ate here for an early Sunday lunch. Beautiful scenery and laid back environment. Food was simple. Prices a little higher than typical fast food in the area. Shrimp & grits were tasty.

Atmosphere was spot on. Food is delicious and beverages are cold! Enjoyed the minimal menu of delicious items. Guacamole and chips were perfect. The fish is nicely blackened.

I wasn't aware of any tv's but might have been one at the bar. We always sit either at a table or couch on the beach! You must go and check it out! We love it!
