I thoroughly enjoyed the grouper salad. And the vinaigrette dressing was delicious. My son enjoyed his chicken fingers and my husband enjoyed a hamburger. All the food was delicious. The atmosphere was great as well because we could eat outside and see the ocean and...More

If you want a good quick meal (sandwiches and tacos) in a different environment, this is the place. It's all outside in a beach setting. Great for large groups, small children, and people of all ages.

Food was great, but place is the real star. Casual tables under the palms and right on the beach. Sand under you feet if you want. Limited menu, I recommend checking that out if looking for something specific or having picky crew. Crab and shrimp...More

Outside picnic tables, two separate areas to place your order with two different menu items, great service as they use a pager at your table that tells the server where you are sitting....down and dirty but definitely a lot of fun and lots to see....

This is a place you do not want to miss if you to go the OB/GS area. From the front of the building it looks very non-descript but the whole back side is open and looks out over the water. Big area of sand for...More

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!
