The view is so gorgeous that you hardly notice the food. Actually the food was very good. Had warm crab dip and shrimp as an appetizer. Then the crab cake sandwich. Service was great.

The atmosphere is awesome, sitting on the porch overlooking the 18th green of the Ocean Course. The food was delicious and recommend the Bagger Burger!

NO. Its first come first sit. The Atlantic house is in the same building. It takes reservations, is almost all seafood and is pricey.
