Pricing was VERY reasonable. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed eating out on their open patio and it was just lovely to watch the moon come up over the... More

We asked at our hotel for a recommendation for breakfast and we were not disappointed. We went on a Wednesday morning, and we sat outside and ate our breakfast looking at the ocean. Couldn't have a better view. The service we received Derrick M was outstanding. He was very friendly, and took the time to talk with us, in addition... More

The beach has a lot of tourist aimed fast food. I was pleasantly surprised with this food as being excellent! The portions were a good size and the food was very tasty. In fact took my unfinished portion home and ate it the next day, and I avoid left-overs. Another bonus, is the seats are right on A1A for a... More

My husband and I ate here on the last night of vacation. We sat outside and enjoyed the views. Our waitress was adorable and very friendly/attentive. They have an excellent wine list too! We had their burger and the Cuban sandwich. Yummy!!

Under $10 on the beach with a fair serving size and above expectations on quality and taste. I was expecting average tourist fare and this was certainly not that. Would come again. Blackened Tilipa and Phillips Cheesesteak were great.

We picked this place because of the out-door seating and the lobster special. They had a 14 ounce whole main lobster for 19.95! My husband had the other lobster special which was Lobster Diabolo - this was a whole lobster butterflied, with clams, 2 kinds of shrimp, and mussels over a bed of fettucine. This was 24.95. I had the... More
