The outside rail overlooks the Pacific Ocean and cypress trees. The Oysters are fresh and should not be missed. The fish tacos are my favorite but so is the tuna salad. You can't go wrong here.

Great spot near the shore, great food and awsome service. Top place for lunch but come during the down time because chances are you may wait a bit for a table. A local favorite, must try the fish sandwich its the best on the menu.
