It’s beach casual and food and service is always excellent. Ribs are great. Full rack will make you full. Try to be on rooftop for sunset. Great for couples and families, plenty of TVs at the bar.

Best draft beers with a view from 2-5pm Monday through Friday. Come see dan the man. He is a true gentleman and a expert at his craft. Always feel welcome and can’t beat the prices here for happy hour. Love it. 6 stars if possible.
