I had the fish tacos by the bar and it was alright. Tasteless, the fish was some form of fried patty. The Burger and fries looked like a way better option.

The server was very friendly and attentive from the outset. The food was amazing.... we had a cheeseburger with sweet potato fries and a steak sandwich with cajun fries. Very simple food, but oh-so-good! The menu was varied with everything from steak to salad to burgers. Extremely reasonably priced too! One touch we liked was the absence of an assumption... More

Love the food but the drinks rule. This one of few non-tourist trap on the strip. Great bartenders and they do not add automatic gratuity, I respect that.

Sitting outside watching the world go by -and good coffee too. The place ifself is a bit gritty, a little worn out. But the location and vibe make up for that. A very entertaining spot to have breakfast watching super cars and the super beautiful pass by.

We love this place and the service is always friendly and fast. We had great bowl of fruits and nice pancakes with eggs and sirup. We can enjoy the ocean and be in a nice breeze.

Great bar, great location, good food and more value than you might think considering the AAA location. Try the fish tacos.

Best breakfast spot while people watching. Best place to sit is outside upstairs overlooking the sidewalk tables. We lingered over ice coffee, and strawberry daiquiri. Yum !! So refreshing on a humid day. To satisfy our appetite, we chose Benedict Style: Eggs News (Ham and Tomato), oatmeal and fresh fruit. Excellent and tasty. One tip. This place is very busy;... More

We had a great breakfast which came from a recommendation from a friend. Service was really nice and it was good value for money for the breakfast. The restaurant was very quiet compared to every other place on Ocean Drive:)
