Restaurant sits right on the ocean, great for sunset dinners. Watched the surfers ride the waves. Staff attentive and friendly. Had the filet mignon and the macadamia nut crusted Mahi.....both delicious. Nice wine list.

The Beach House is truly a great restaurant on the water front with incredible views. Go just before sunset and the staff will take your photo with the sunset in the background. Food, service and views among the best. Highly recommended

The pictures are real, it's that beautiful. The food is fresh and prepared with great attention to detail. Best fish we've had, period. The calamari taste was so delicate, not greasy or coated too much. The staff are happy and attentive. Sunset is phenomenal!
