Beautiful scenery as sunset views. The grounds are gorgeous with palm trees everywhere! The drinks are great! Make sure you get the homemade potato chips! Appetizers were great! Great place for drinks and appetizers before dinner!

My wife and I enjoyed breakfast on the patio in October. It was nine in the morning and the golf course hadn’t opened for the winter yet so we were the only couple on the patio for breakfast. The fare is typical for a breakfast...More
