This place is always packed so get there early. Went for drinks and apps one evening and it was a lot of fun. The ocean was right there. Great place to watch the sunset. Food was good and drink service was good as well.

We enjoyed some snacks and drinks while waiting for the sun to set beautifully over the ocean. When the sun sets they ring an old bell which adds a nice touch.
