Good quality food, great service. Tucked in a condo setting with beach access. Priced $$$ and presentation of food is important. For the price, there are other options close by

Get reservations and ask to sit on the beach. Excellent range of menu options that were all good. Our group enjoyed the lamb chop, grouper special, seafood pasta, and more. Good service and enjoyable setting.
