Visited on a Sunday morning but we were seated straight away. It was busy but service was good and food excellent. Great location just off the pier. We enjoyed the bloody Mary's, hangout breakfast and the eggs Benedict. Definitely a place to visit again.

The Hangout is a local haunt, serving up the usual favourites, from burgers to tacos and everything in between. The drinks were good, the staff friendly and it made for an enjoyable low key evening close to the beach.
