Great off season, gets very crowded & noisy in season. Have daily specials during off season. Place for kids to play. View of ocean is on 2nd floor deck. Food was good, staff friendly.

Good location, nicely decorated, mediocre food at best. Service friendly but rushed. Don’t waste your time and money. So many much better places to eat in Bethany Beach: Bluecoast, 14 Global, Sedona, Off the Hook, Matt’s Fish Camp, Northeast Seafood to name a few.

Had a good breakfast off the menu at the 10am opening. Sat upstairs with a nice view of the ocean and downtown area. Holly did a great job as our waitress.

A big new location in the middle of town. Outdoor dining would be a great option unless it is raining and high humidity as it was this last week. Menu selections were interesting. A bit noisy on a busy night.
