Thank you for the nice review! Yeah we're old fashioned in our décor for sure lol, on purpose, as its styled after a Hermit who lived on the beaches back in the early 1900's. And we have lots of cool antiques to view from that...More

Wow!!! What an awesome meal! We started with truffle fries and the margarita sampler. Both were excellent choices. Steaks for everyone, and they were all cooked perfectly. The view of the water is beautiful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a casual fine dining experience

We enjoyed the steak. I had the filet well done and it was still tender. Loaded baked potatoes were great.
