The food was average, even though the brie cheese on our sandwich was substituted with cheddar unknowingly. Olives were forgotten from my salad, and I requested water several times before having a pitcher delivered. The ambience and view made up for the lack thereof, then...More

Don't miss this great ocean-side location for dinner. They also have a dog friendly patio so you can bring your other best friend along. Courteous and attentive wait staff.
