This place was someone on a paleo diet could find a good meal. I had a spinach salad, grilled salmon, grilled asparagus, and broccoli which was also pretty good although the salmon portion was small, probably 2 oz. My daughter loved the the soft tacos with shrimp and chocolate lava cake with ice cream. My wife thought the fish & chips were pretty good.

We thought the service was excellent. As soon as we arrived the hostess told us the wait from the kitchen was 30 min. Our waitress was attentive and even provided us with an umbrella for shade upon request.

Not a lot to be said about this place: Extremely slow service, flies everywhere, the restrooms are horrendous, the food is average, and there are no glasses, just plastic cups. This may be a good place to come for a beer or drink after fishing on the pier, but as far as a place to eat, head on down to VB for better seafood with ocean views.

Croakers and flounders galore - well, at least on the day I fished. The pier is very long, they claim to be the longest pier in North America. There were cleaning stations and a few areas to sit in the shade. I would advise you to get to the pier early on a Saturday because it becomes very crowded - but, don't get there before 7 AM or you'll be paying for night fishing and will need to pay again for day fishing. The day rate is $8.00. I did not visit the restaurant but the food smelled good.

We came here for lunch, and it took a bit to get waited on. The food was good, but we didn't have the waitress come back to check on us other than 2 minutes after the food was delivered. We got done eatting, didn't have refills on our drinks, and sat. Sat longer. Sat too long. We finally got up, and walked to the register to tell them we needed a slip to pay. We sat a total of 40 minutes waiting on the waitress to stop by our table. To me that is way too long to wait. The food was good, a little pricey, but we enjoyed the view.
