This place is noisy, so much so that it is hard to carry on a conversation. Tables are packed close together. The “ocean view” is hampered by dirty windows. Go there for the food, but nothing else.

We arrived late from the airport, hungry and without a reservation, which is a necessity. They found us a table anyway with a great view of the evening ocean. Service was A-1, the fish and chips of mahi mahi was delicious and we raved about...More

Noisy, overpriced. No view at night (duh). Friendly service but slow. Food good. LOTS of kale in the quinoa bowl. Nice fish and mashed potatoes, but really, $40 worth? Get fish and potatoes, cook them at your condo.

We loved the atmosphere, the views and the drinks. We had driven past this restaurant several times before going and sincerely wished we had gone in sooner. The views out the back are amazing- the sign doesn't lie. We also met some 'regulars' and we...More
