The only thing that saves this place is "the view".

When fist getting in. We waited for about 7 mins for the hostess. She had walked by several times, and didn't even give a "Sorry, I'll be with you in a minute." But instead took us right to a table. No hello, no welcome. (But we can deal with that.)

The view is beautiful.

After about 10 minutes of waiting, our waitress finally came over. Took our drink orders, and didn't come back for another 10 minutes. (This was also on a very non busy night. We counted 4 other tables, in the waitress section.) She took our order, no apptz, no drinks. Just a hamburger and two chicken sandwiches. We started to wait. The table next to us, had aptz, the entrée, check and paid, before we even got our food. The waitress checked up on us once, to refill a diet coke. The food came, the chicken was over done. And the taste of oil that needed to be changed, tasted with the food. At the end of dinner, the waitress, finally came back with the refill of the diet coke, and asked "How everything was." We said, good and asked for the check, since we were finished.


Great view. But several other places along the sea line, with the same sort of view and much better food and service. We own a beach house down the road, and we wont ever go back. It's sad, cause this could be a really great place.

Paid about $70 for two drinks and a few offerings off the menu, and the food was really bad. My boyfriend and I are the kind of people that are extremely easy to please and never ever complain about food anywhere. But this was bad enough to warrant me writing my first review ever of a restaurant. The quesadillas and crab poppers seriously tasted like a frozen meal at the grocery store. The coconut shrimp were alright. The peel n eat shrimp basically tasted like crappy cocktail shrimp you can get in the frozen food section. It was truly awful. Drinks weren't so good either. Really bummed because the view and the breezes were so lovely.

the only good thing about this place is the view....the service is awful....nobody even says hello or we'll be with you in a minute or anything...we waited 20 minutes to place a drink order, no one gave us a menu till we asked for 1 . Then 40 minutes later we're still waiting on a cheeseburger. I won't ever go back to this place ! it probably won't be there for much longer anyway !

Great place to eat and drink..on the pier at the top. Was a little windy. We set at the bar. Bartender was not too good. Was not very attentive at all to the point that he didn't really want to be there, was the feeling we got. Had to ask for everything that you normally wouldn't.

The food was ok, nothing special, waited too long for it, almost like they forgot about us. Funny thing, it was 8:30 pm on a Tuesday night and it wasn't that busy. The watermelon sangria was, quite frankly, gross. It had an off flavor to it. The bartender was busy with everyone else, she must have been distracted while making my drink and since we weren't running a tab, she ignored us the rest of the time.
