We had great food, in the outdoors part overlooking the gulf shore. The waiters were very nice and friendly. The seafood was fresh and wonderful. Also had very good variety. We did not have any meat, but it was available on the menu.

The view is great. The food was good but nothing extraordinary about steamed seafood. The staff was friendly, but the view was great. A nice place to enjoy a drink and watch the beach.
