A fantastic location for lunch, right on the beach with the sand between our toes. You may think the restaurant would rest on its laurels because of the location, but the food was delicious and the service from Valerie was impeccable.

This restaurant is literally 50 yards from the beach. The workers are kind and give great suggestions for those not sure what they want. It is a bit expensive, but if you are on vacation, you prepared for this.
