We stopped in for drinks and put our names in for a table, not knowing how long we'd have to wait. Within 30-45 minutes, we were seated at one of the outdoor tables. Even after sunset, the view was fabulous due to the floodlights on...More

Don't go if you are hungry because it seems slow and disorganized. Some tables came later and got served faster than ours! Fish tacos were great

Warm summer-like night, lucky to get a front row view of the sunset. Son enjoyed his steak, daughter enjoyed a Thai dish. The tuna appetizer was delicious.

Normally, beach restaurants have OK food and the service is somewhat poor because they know you're coming for the views. This restaurant is the exception. The waitstaff was extremely helpful, the service was great, and the views of course, were outstanding. We were here for...More
