This was a excellent place to eat right on the water. The prices were average and the food was fantastic. They have inside and outside seating and both times we went, day and night different days, live music. Would give it an A+!

Food is good, prices are fair. Beach-side view is awesome and the food is good, not great, but certainly worthy of a visit. Prices are surprisingly reasonable. Friday happy hour (5-7) has great Hors d’oeuvres. Bar side louder, but has dancing and some fun.
