Atmosphere is lacking if you are coming for a view. Thank goodness they've planted some greenery to block the industrial park and Honda dealership. Food is overpriced for what you get. The best deal is the $9 pizza slice with salad served at lunch (not sure about dinner). Have been here several times, and service is "hit and miss". Wait staff seems harried, and more concerned about turning tables. As mentioned in other posts, it's noisy, especially inside. Don't bother visiting if the wait for a table is long.

We all liked this place and have eaten there multiple times over the years. It's nice to get pizza, which pleases everyone and I love trying all the different beer they sell. You can even buy souvenirs to take home! This has always been our evening stop on the way home from the beach. They are okay with sunburned and slightly tired people.

We went back a few times because the food and the beer were good. It's a comfortable place with excellent service and atmosphere...even caught some live music in the evening. Good prices, brews, and pizza. :)

It is good food. It has a nice Lanai with lots of trees. Too noisy inside.
We've been lots of times over the past 2 years 3-week vacations, for good lunches.
Have Sunday music at 5:30 p.m., but at 5 p.m. it would have been a 25 minute wait.
Went down the way for excellent Thai.

Just arrived and stopped for a bite to eat. Two of us had the fish tacos. Really fresh and delicious. Did not you the beer but would go for the food again.
