“Come for the view”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Having lunch overlooking the beach was great. Too bad the food and service couldn't match the location. I ordered a salad with grilled fish. The fish came blackened. The portions were generous, but not quite what I ordered. The server was always there when we didn't need service and nowhere to be seen when we did. Oh well, you can always kick back and gaze out over the beach and gulf. We were lucky that there wasn't much of a crowd, but beware, they allow smoking.

“Drinks were great!”
Reviewed 14 March 2014 via mobile

My friends and I stopped here for a drink one afternoon, which were great. We checked out the menu and decided we would go back for dinner. I guess we missed the part of the menu that said it served food until 5 or 6. Bummer! Oh well, the drinks were good and it was a short walk from our hotel!

“Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Good nachos and wings with a cold drink. Sunset was nice too and is centrally located on the beach. Also can walk the pier.

“Right on the beach”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

... and that's it's only redeeming quality. Mediocre food, decent service, tourist prices. Good for a quick bite between waves.

“Great view and tasty food”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

This restaurant has a excellent ocean view.
My husband and me went twice and one of the times was so busy that the waitresses did not know who was been served and who did not. We waited 15 mintues just to get someone to order.
The food was really good and tasty that's the reason we went back. Overall was not that bad.
