The portions are large, there is decent variety. The walk up restaurant feels comfortable yet inviting. It’s a perfect spot for summer, post beach dinner.

Visiting the area and this place was recommended. It had a good Buzz. We had a fish and shrimp special. The food was ok. Fries were good, the breaded fish was a bit soggy. As I said, the food was ok, but didn't live up...More
