Dined here with friends and their six-month old son Thursday night. Ordered pan fried grouper, chicken Marsala, salmon salad, and sunset rigatoni. Wait staff were very accommodating to our needs and were great. Very relaxed atmosphere in beach setting. Food was good and served hot.

The women coming through selling roses several times during dinner was disruptive, but they weren't pushy.

I ate here with other friends last summer (it was a lot busier in July) and food was equally good. It's nothing fancy, but tastes good and looks appealing.

I loved the fact that this restaurant was filled with locals. I felt very much at home. The menu was great and the seafood delicious. It was right on the beach and beautifully decorated.

Abominable service and mediocre food which is a shame, given an excellent location.

It only takes one bad experience........food was average but the service was dreadful. We arrived and had to wait to be seated because the maitre de was on his cell phone (chatting to a freind by the sound of the conversation). We were sitting outside and part way through our meal we noticed our waiter walk off over the road....gone.......it took some time before we could get someone else to serve our table. He said our waiter decided to go home & see his girlfriend. There are far better restaurants in this area without going to this one.

This place is awful on so many levels it's not worth going into. I go there because it is convenient. The hospitality is like a one-star hotel in the middle of nowhere. The owner has some serious issues with regard how to treat his customers. The food is lower than so-so. I would avoid this place. There are so many restaurants around the area. Pass, really, all the way around.
