“Good food - lousy service ”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Don't eat here if you don't have patience. The food is good, but the service is very slow. It is a shame because the ambience is perfect, but the staff just cannot seem to get its act together.

“Always busy”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

I stopped by for lunch on a Friday. Got a table right away and the menu was presented promptly. Thought that I ordered a tuna salad with onion rings but got a tuna salad sandwich with no side. Food was ok. The check arrived on time. Servers seemed nice but was too busy.

“Nice beach bar”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Royal and used this as our spot to have a sunset cocktail coming off the beach. Staff very pleasant especially Gino, the bartender. We did have dinner here our first night and found the food just ok. Live music at weekend was great, good atmosphere.

“Great location but mediocre food”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We loved the location by the beach and the live band--excellent female lead vocal. Our waitress was attentive and helpful.
The food was so-so, and the dessert was memorable for our disappointment. The worst aspect was the waitress told us not to write a tip in when we charged the meal because the management did not share it with the serving staff! We gave her a cash tip.
