Although it would appear there is an inside restaurant (perhaps for breakfast) -- at the time we were there (around 2:30PM) it was a walk-up to the window, order and pay and have your food brought to your table situation. I had a turkey club and the two others had tuna fish sandwiches with drinks. There were many choices of... More

This is more than your typical beach concession stand. They have all the standard items, plus freshly cooked seafood, sandwiches, and sides. Both the fish sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich are large enough to share (2 chicken breasts on the chicken sandwich). Fries are good, onion rings are so-so, fresh lemonade is good. Order at the counter, find a... More

And the staff seems to really enjoy working here. We have never had a bad meal here. Past two Thanksgiving dinners were marvelous. I recommend the coconut shrimp caesar

We enjoyed unlimited pancakes this morning here. You are given 3 pancakes and 3 sausages. It was very good. They certainly have the service down to the letter. They know what they are doing. Though it was crowded. There is plenty of seating.. I loved eating on beach, watching the water. Just a beautiful morning. After breakfast my kids enjoyed... More

We visited for dinner on a whim after playing in the park next door. There was live music and the place was filling up fast as sunset was approaching. Long line to order food. Hard to find a table. It was a very popolar place on a Sunday night. Food was surprisingly good. Price was reasonable. We saw they had... More

I chose my main meal Shrimp Taco thank goodness I ordered fries at an extra cost. Of our party, my order went in first but came out last. Give me a break Six Shrimp for $9.99. What a rip off!!! Great sunset but came away very hungry, very disappointed
