The setting is glorious views of the ocean right out the window. The fact that the views are surpassed by a great menu selection and the oysters are delicious as well as the burger .Servers were all very helpful and genuinely available to help.

We had a fantastic Sunday Brunch with our friends celebrating their 25th anniversary. We enjoyed drinks & bread. Then eggs Benedict, blueberry pancakes & egg white frittata. The view was to die for! The wait staff was very attentive. Love this restaurant.
