Russian restaurant with decent borscht soup. Food is average. Prices are reasonable. Location on the boardwalk is special. Russian waitresses. Dont expect small talk or smiles. Enjoy the ethnic atmosphere.

I love the location of this place, being right on a boardwalk overlooking the ocean. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great! We came here with a group of people and had a memorable experience. And the best part, it's BYOB!!!

If you don't enjoy people chain smoking around you while you eat in the restaurant, then stay away. The owner is so rude. She tells customers to be quiet. Servers smoke and then serve food without washing their hands. Tables are cleaned with filthy rags....More

A very few dishes that are homemade are decent, but the majority of the food is frozen, store bought prepared meals, just warmed up and dressed with an unsuitable sauce. Mashed potatoes are from powder and reheated many times. Salad dressing oil is cheap vegetable...More
