Getting served took a long time but the food was yummy! The fries are nice and crunchy and the chicken tacos really flavorful. The wine list isn't very good for wine country but you can't beat the view.

Weekend eggs Benedict are yummy, too bad you can't order on a week day. The chowder is good, also the scallop crostini.

Good food, great view, steep prices but you pay for the location and lack of competition in the area and as the meals were delicious so we didn't mind the slightly over inflated cost. Would recommend.

A delightful time sitting overlooking the beach and ocean during brunch on a Sunday. Food was okay - nothing outstanding. But overall a delightful experience

we ended up eating lunch and dinner here so sampled quite a bit of the menu between the three of us. Everything was delicious and very fresh. Great views of the sea and the outside tables are sheltered when it gets chilly

Sunset views and outdoor seating are the best things going here. Food pricey but average. Steak from surf n turf had no flavor. Lobster tails pretty decent. Wait time at sunset was minimal. Good service. Suggestion... Get heat lamps outside it's cool after sun sets.More
