Went here for dinner and had the fish and chips. Have had better fries, but the batter on the cod was light and great tasting. We would eat here again.

Had a savory Shrimp Scampi & steak that were cooked to perfection along with a tasty dinner salad! Headed to the bar to play pool enjoy drinks with friendly visitors from the UK. One fun evening!

On entering the side door where there is a small sitting area, there were a few 'undesirable lookng' men lurking about which was unexpected and very disconcerting. We passed through quickly. There is a huge restaurant and a bar with tables too if you prefer...More

Our motel sold us breakfast vouchers for this beach restaurant. The voucher was for scrambled eggs, hash browns and sausages. It took forever for our food to arrive and none of the dishes were even remotely warm. The pancake I had were very dense and...More
