“Great Mud Pie”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We stopped late -- right before closing -- and ordered just a macadamia nut mud pie. We got it to go and ate it under the moonlight on the beach. It was wonderful!

“Nice food, not that exceptional like 10 years ago”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

This was nice, the food decent, the views are also good. It made more of an impression 10 years ago. I think the entrees were average for the price and locale. They used to be dressed up a lil more in the past, maybe it was presentation. A good place to go but not my favorite.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This was a great place to eat. Be aware that upstairs has the same name and kitchen but has a completely different menu. We got tricked into this, but it was an excellent meal. Downstairs at the sand bar the finger foods and drinks are great and about average for price $$. There is a happy hour. :-) Upstairs dinner was delicious but very pricey $$$. I would recommend and return!

“Epic view. Amazing Hula Pie!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Also good service. All the food was great. The coffee was pretty ordinary but not complaining...go the Hula Pie. You'll be sickeningly full afterwards... :)

“Something for everyone with an oceanview”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Great salad bar and something for everyone one the menu. Appetizers great. Awesome snack menu downstairs. Try the Pineapple mojito......and as always the hula pie. Upstairs a bit pricey for what is on the plate but you get more for your dollar eating downstairs.
