The title says it all. The food was delicious, my grilled mackerel (the special that night) perfectly cooked. There was so much food on my plate and the mackerel steak was so big that I couldn't eat it all. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable.

My wife and I went in for supper this past Saturday eve. It cost us over $68 for 2 meals, they were just okay.....nothing special for sure. We had to beg for butter, food was served in paper. Really.....expensive meal served in take out material! WOW
We really regretted our decision to go there and will not do it again! Only 1 hour after supper we drove over the causeway and got a pizza at Domino's and sat on the beach and ate it. We sure wish we had our $68 back!! Just read all the other reviews and you will find that the place is WAY overpriced!!!! Think the owner/manager needs a reality check!!!!

We first looked to eat there in June, and the wait was so long we decided to come back after Labor Day. Returned last night and we were seated right away as the restaurant was half full. Food was average. I had the grilled scallops and they were not bad, but everything was over salted and overdone. We all ordered corn as a side (mistake as it was out of season and we should have known better). The corn came ice cold and mushy. Our second helping of corn was warmer but still cool so we passed. The service was OK, but nothing special. Doubt we will come back to try other menu items.

Good food but expensive. Difficult to figure out how to get to resturant and where to park. We enjoyed the food but the prices were more than we had bargained for and my dad had offered to pay so we were trying to keep the bill down as much as we could so we stuck with sandwiches.
