It was a cold Sunday evening in January and most places were closed. Not the Cottage Bar! They had a very good band playing, heaters on the deck and attentive service.

When it was the Gulfshore Grill the food and service were excellent. Now it is just another beach bar and restaurant. Average food and way below average service.

We ate lunch one day outside and it was very good we went back another night for dinner. Would highly recommend this as one of the best places on the beach to go eat!
