Stooped on an afternoon beach walk. Our server was Brandon who was great very personable and efficient. We had the shrimp and roasted feta, highly recommend. Have not been for a meal but a couple of apps were well worth it

Great service from Amanda and super selections from the kitchen team. Thank you. As a local I can't wait to return for the eggs benedict. So many to choose from.

We had the WORST experience at The Sunset. It is the wedding venue at this location. They absolutely stole our money, approx $4000. We had a tragic death in the family (prior to COVID), and they wouldn't even give us the decency of a meeting...More

For bar food, the food was slightly above average; however, the spectacular beach/gulf view and great service, made our visit a very pleasant experience. I also felt the drinks were a bit more reasonably priced than at other local bars.

Despite the low reviews (which seemed to be mostly poor during dinner hour dining), we tried it for breakfast. It was a nice walk from our place, the host waved us in cheerfully. We were seated outside for a gorgeous view. We ordered a skillet...More

Not sure where to even start... the food at this place is so horrifically terrible we thought we were on some kind of hidden reality show like bizarre foods. Their “smashburgers” are the exact opposite. Instead of super thin carmalized crispy patties you get small...More

Fish was very good and location is great. “Fresh broccoli” is freezer burned. Service is awful. Half the crowd - we should be able to get ketchup and dessert within a reasonable time. Nope! Tipped 15% vs regular 20% only b/c of Covid Come on...More

Really enjoyed the outdoor dining. It was a bit cool, so we opted to eat under the palapa roofed bar area, where they had added some outdoor heaters. All of the food was really good, but I have to tell you about their Shrimp and...More

Terrible experience! 1st - this was during COVID - so we sought out places to sit outside. Servers were either wearing masks under their nose or not wearing at all. Chairs were old wooden wedding chairs that were stained. Our server was nice, but super...More
