When you have a beach side setting like this a restaurant may not focus as much on the food. Beachcomber used to be a lot better. Fish tacos were pretty tasteless. Beyond meat burger was very good and thanks for putting this on the menu....More

There was no one there when we arrived around 8:00. By 8:30 there were four additional families. Ordering food doesn’t take long but getting the food takes longer than “normal” because it’s all made to order.
