“Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

If your looking for a good place to eat on be on and out over the water, this is it. The food is good and the beer cold. It is also a fishing pier and you can watch the catches come in.

“A Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We stayed at the Towneplace Suites Hotel down the road prior to our Cruise. We walked down the road (which is quite a busy road along the shore). We went here just because I love eating at restaurants on piers and we just happened to see it in passing on the way to the hotel. What a great find. My 11-year old daughter loved it. We loved it. A great view. Great atmosphere being up high and the walls opened up for a breeze to come through.

Food was generally good. Waitress was kind. We would return again if we were in the area.
Price was a bit more than we wanted to spend, but it was worth the one time experience.

“On the pier dining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

One of the very few places you can actually dine on the water. We had the fried shrimp dinner and the grilled snapper and both were excellent. Not a lot put into presentation but I guess it's what to expect from an open air restaurant on the beach. I'll eat here again.

“Cool place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Very casual, open air room. Burgers, seafood, kid friendly menu. I had the snapper tacos, which were awesome. It's great to try new places and not be disappointed. We'll be back!

“View is amazing...food could be better.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

We sat outside and dined on fresh seafood, which wasn't the freshest I had, but still ok. The view was excellent which made up for the "just ok" food.
