Not going back. It's conveniently located on boardwalk in Bethany with great beach view but service not good and food is mediocre. We arrived before the rest of our family did and were refused to be seated until our entire party was present. When our...More

Quality of food and service has gone down over the years. Food is just average and the price is a little on the high side for what you get. Great bar.

The restaurant is nicely decorated. The upstairs dinning room is "fancy" decor. Unfortunately the food is just average and way overpriced. I ordered the seafood salad. What a bad choice. I was expecting to find a heaping mound of shrimp, crabmeat and scallops. The ridiculous...More
