Very nice place to eat. You gotta have the All You Can Eat Pancakes! It's right on the beach. Live music is a cool addition to the place. The pricing is also not too bad, it's fairly good for the wallet.

5 stars because this place delivers on what it is. Nothing better than fish tacos, cold margaritas and a beach. And with reasonable prices. Also bought a Mango shell candle from the gift shop!

sensational beach venue ideal for kids to swim and enjoy the sand. Serves "cafe " food all day so far from gourmet but low cost way to enjoy a beer, fast food eats and sensational sun set over the ocean.

Enjoyed an early morning breakfast under covered umbrellas. Scrambled eggs toast and home fries just right. Great location, quick and clean. All you can eat pancakes a big hit with the kids!

We were on our way to Tampa Airport and decided to try and get a bite to eat with an ocean view. Ocean view was good. The food .... Well, you get what you pay for. It "ok" but nothing special.

We visit often and always take our out of town guest. It is a perfect location on the beach right by the sand volleyball courts and the beach playground. All the food that we have tried has been amazing, but my absolute favorite is the fish Island wrap. You can get it blackened, grilled, fried or even with chicken for... More

The breakfast was 5 star and excellent, the staff was very friendly and it's a Pokemon gym! What else could you ask for!? They also have a great gift shop with awesome shirts and gifts for the whole family. We ended our day with a huge snow cone! I'll definitely be back.

I look forward to my day trips on the island. The first place I always go to to this bustling cafe. There's free parking and the food and service is fast and efficient and very good. You won't go anywhere else on the island and get a hearty meal for under ten dollars. The staff again is very efficient and... More

I was looking so much forward having a breakfast on the beach, but what a disappointment, lots of flies and very average food. I didn't eat my waffles as they make the wrong order. The only positive thing is the location, the cafe is located on the beach but what a poor setting and very average food! Service is also... More
