Great vibe here. Tiki bar is so much fun with live music!! We like to eat on the deck. It feels like you are out in the middle of the bay. Just beautifu.

Nice views of NYC. Small, friendly beach town. If looking for a inexpensive way to take the kids, this little beach town is it.

Had a nice lunch sitting outside overlooking the bay. Weather was perfect and they had small fans all along the railings in case it was too hot. Food was very good and ample - reasonably priced.
