We ate here on the patio and it was wonderful. My 9 month old though the birds were fascinated (I was a little worried they a were going to attack him- this is going to be an issue at any restaurant outside by the beach)....More

The food and drinks were fantastic but the service was even better. When you go ask for Tristan hes the best!

Definitely the best spot in this area for a drink or two and a quick bite to eat, in our opinion. The Shark Bite drink I ordered was SO good, and the open air seating/outside seating upstairs was so peaceful. Great view.
