Had dinner there and it was ok it was pretty cold inside and they ran out of food that we had order and had to pick different stuff. The food wasnt bad but I wouldnt say it was the best either.

Wonderful to sit out over the water, but only two servers for the whole inside and outside area. We waited for a table at the bar, but the servers had their hands full with the tables. The servers did their best, one was even able to get us a beer while we waited, but we did notice how long it was taking for tables to get their food...the staff was overwhelmed. It was the week of "family spring break" and the owner certainly should have known they'd be slammed. We went elsewhere to eat.

I agreed with the others Review Writers: it's located in an open area, right on the beach and on top of the three stories building of the pier. The dining room is covered with the big folding doors all around. In a nice day, they open up for great views with cool breeze and close when has highly wind... Right outside of dining room, just few steps down, there is a small cuty open deck that fit about five tables for four. On weekend night they had a Three Man performed Old Time Rock and Roll and nice Country Music... We were there on Saturday night, Mar.23,2013, around 8PM.,not crowdy, their staffs were nice and treated us with warm welcome and take drink order right away... It's took a little while to brought us our drinks??? But it's took more than 45 minutes to bring foods to us??? The others people who came in after us, were served and left before us??? Do not know: Our waitress had issues, problems with the chef, the cook??? The Seafood Plater(with one small piece of grilled Red Snapper, 6 fried shrimps, 6 oysters and a choice of bake potato or sweet potato fried) costed $27.99!!! It's not more than $22.00 at some other good Seafood Rests. The foods are OK.,but had great view! Convenience caused it's nearby our resort, do not have to drive far, OK. for quick bite, nothing special!!!

We stopped in for some fish and chips. It was early afternoon and not too many customers. After about 10 minutes my husband asked if there was wait service for the tables or if we needed to order at the bar. It was another 5 minutes before someone came by to ask if we wanted to order drinks. We passed on the drinks and said we wanted to order lunch. We noticed that there were other people who came in after us and were served and left before us. Yet other tables had the same experience we had. The fish and chips were gooey and tasteless at $12.95 a plate. My husbands fries were in a ball. The sweet potato fries were excellent. The view was great. Won't be stopping in here again
