The restaurant is located within a hotel. We had a family brunch on Sunday. Road construction made it a challenge to find the place. Food was very good, both breakfast and lunch choices. Enjoyed the crab sandwich. They advertise free parking but it's only for...More

A $95 dinner + $17 parking fee (including the $5 validation from restaurant) divided by 3 hours spent in the restaurant = $37 an hour. This is much too high a price for this casual restaurant. Do they really expect restaurant guests to park on...More

Good view of the beach. Good variety on menu, food is decent. Husband ordered swordfish and he said it's good not overcooked. My Jambalaya was ok. The service is really good.

This restaurant has gone downhill. Customer service is terrible as well as the food. Our waitress was nice but the service was slow and the rest of the staff was unfriendly and unprofessional. I accidentally left my parking ticket on our table so I could...More

Nothing special; a little overpriced for the quality of the food. Had the fish tacos and they were decent.
