It's loud, and crowded but, it's great food and the band on Friday night was good. Small crowded dance floor and on the beach. Fun beachy party vibe. The chicken pesto pasta was so good and my Hubs loved the seafood cioppino.

We had the fish taco. The fish was cod..but there was only 2 bites of fish in each taco and it was greasy. Also included was a lot of lettuce. Salsa was very spicy.

The beach views are the best thing about the restaurant. The food is pricey for what you get and the server seemed disinterested even though we were at there at a slow time.
