This restaurant is noted for its fantastic view of the Pacific. The food is just average. If you go for breakfast the :eggs benedict" are a good choice.

We stopped here and saw the most beautiful sunset ever! The views of the coast from the restaurant are spectacular! They started us with a nice relish and the clam chowder was very good. The salmon was a little overdone but tasty. Would recommend this place for the view.

Check it out. What views... Once the haze burns off you can see down 1 for miles of coastline. How beautiful it is here and relaxing too.

Stopped by for lunch. We were seated before another group but their order was taken first and they recieved food first!? Food arrived but bread was soggy, salad dressing was all oil and we were never offered a refill on drinks!!
The saving grace was the coffee stand and fabulous man working there!! Yummy drinks deserved 5 stars!! View was nice too!
My advise: have coffee and enjoy the view!!

We popped in for breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the views. The service was prompt and attentive. It is a must stop and see place on your way down Rt 1.
