EXCELLENT french fries. I recommend the fried fish basket (tilapia) and the drinks are also GREAT! Specialty drinks along with full bar and beer. Watch the moon rise over the horizon while relaxing on the deck.

We went on a Monday afternoon...had a great time just hanging out. Right on the beach. Comfortable in the afternoon shade. Guys at the bar were nice. No frozen drinks so no virgin drinks for the kids ...might have been just a Monday thing-not sure....More
