The place is very nice for families and is directly on the beach. Come as you are. The food is average but the ribs are amazing. The place is pricey do if you are on a budget turn go to a fast food place and save your money.

My family ate dinner here and I will say the view was wonderful of the beach however it was not the food I expected. We order chicken and shrimp items from the menu and we can say most of it was left on the table. The waitress was very friendly but some of the other staff was extremely rude. May have to try it again and decide.

Stopped here toward the end of the day for coffee, dessert, and to watch the amazing sunset. All were great! We had the chocolate cake and key lime pie - both we would highly recommend. Had seats at the end of the pier, facing the sunset which worked out wonderfully - even though we did not request them. This place is definitely busy, so you may have a wait depending on time of day. Will definitely return in the future.

Sure, right off the bat you can tell this place is a bit "touristy", but it definitely is worth a trip.
First off, the place is huge. Lots of room for indoor or outdoor seating on the pier. Very easy to sit a large group/family and is definitely family friendly. We sat out on the pier and enjoyed it.

The food came out very, very fast (even with a fairly sized crowd there). Kids loved their dinners, my grilled shrimp was very good, and let's just say my husband left nothin but dry bones off his bucket of ribs.
I do find it a little pricey for the type of food (like $24 for ribs) but overall it was a very good meal. For 2 kids meals, ribs, shrimp, a beer, and a house drink it was $90 before tip.
Overall, the food and service was good so we didn't mind paying.

If you're in for an adult beverage, the Pineapple Willy on the rocks is very, very good.

Would we go again? Sure thing.

Really friendly people. Excellent food. Definitely kid friendly in the late afternoon. Food was excellent and the seating overlooking the beach/ sea cannot be beaten. One of our favourites.
