This place was awesome....except for the staff. We waited at a bar table for fifteen minute while the blonde bar maid and four or five of her staff behind the bar looked at us. Place was empty so we chatted away until we realized that...More

Nice views of NYC. Small, friendly beach town. If looking for a inexpensive way to take the kids, this little beach town is it.

We use to go here all the time before Hurricane Sandy and we loved it. This weekend we finally got back and I was so excited. The service was great as was the new deck area. Lovely view. But the food was disappointing. We had...More

Had a nice lunch sitting outside overlooking the bay. Weather was perfect and they had small fans all along the railings in case it was too hot. Food was very good and ample - reasonably priced.

The drinks & food kind of pricey, especially since the food isn't great. I'd rather drive to The highlands & pay more for better food & better views. It is what it is. If you're looking for a beer & a decent view of the...More
