We stopped here after a walk on the beach. The hostess found us a table on the deck very quickly. The food was good. Holly provided good service.

The food has always been, at best, ok but the concern for the safety of the patrons has not been a focus of this organization. At one point we literally had a fire start right across the aisle from us because they hung cheap outdoor lights above the tables without regard to grounding. But this weekend we found a sign...

A little pricey for the area but paying for the view. Simple menu, kid-friendly, good size portions. Beer is good, food is hot, scenery is great.

The server was excellent, very friendly and helpful! The crab dip was very good. This resturant was attached to the hotel. Beach access was nice.
